Roof coatings are available in a range of colors, designs, and finishes. We do our homework, research, and work with a number of coating manufacturers to ensure you get the best option for your structure. Our aim is to sell you the finest roof possible rather than the most popular product. Uniflex, Gaco, Karnak, GAF, Henry, Armour Proof Coatings, Mule-Hide Products, and Inland Coatings are among the companies we represent. If your roof uses something other than these products, call us. We will take care of you.
It’s critical to research the physical qualities of a roof coating before applying it to make sure it will perform in your climate. Manufacturers may provide product data sheets that include the following five characteristics (as well as others).
Elongation is the ability of a material to be stretched before it breaks. Elastomeric coatings have an elongation rate of 250% to 900%. The greater the elongation value, the more durable a coating is suited to endure typical roof building expansion and contraction without cracking, thinning, or peeling off.
The maximum amount of pressure a material can endure before breaking is its tensile strength. The majority of elastomeric coatings have tensile strengths ranging from 250 to 1200 psi. Elongation and tensility are inversely related; as one rises, the other decreases. Expert construction companies balance the two characteristics in order to create a durable, long-lasting membrane that can stretch and move with roof surfaces.
Permeability, or perm rating, is the degree to which a material or membrane allows liquids and gases to flow through it. Permeability varies considerably depending on the type of coating used. Acrylics have a high permeability rating, implying that they are highly breathable. Silicones have a lower permeability rate, indicating that they are more moisture-resistant. It’s worth noting that increased permeability does not always indicate poorer weather resistance.
The reflectivity of a material is how much light it can bounce back, expressed as a percentage from 0% to 100%.
A material’s ability to reflect heat is called emissivity. Elastomeric roof coatings have an ideal amount of 0.65, which means that 65% of the sun’s thermal energy isn’t absorbed by the roof- thus resulting in lower heating and cooling costs for a building.
The solid content in a mixture is the amount of solid material that will be left after a substance has dried. Understanding this property is critical for coating processes to achieve the necessary dry film thickness as specified. While this property isn’t significant in terms of performance, if appearance is important to you, it may be worth considering.
