Is your commercial or industrial roof aging while showing signs of wear and tear? If so, a roof restoration may be the best course of action. A roof restoration is when a durable roof coating is applied directly onto your existing commercial or industrial roofing system. Restorations represent a cost-effective alternative to replacement, and should save your business cash, while decreasing environmental waste. One of the most popular roof coatings in the industry is an elastomeric roof coating. Elastomeric coatings entail 3 major steps:
Elastomeric coatings provide a powerful barrier which reflects UV rays from the sun. Not only does this reduce the corrosion of your roofing material over time, but it actually cools down your entire building. As a result, you won’t have to overwork your AC unit, which reduces energy usage, and lowers your energy bill. In addition to better energy efficiency and UV protection, an elastomeric roof coating is able to extend the life of any roof. Whether you have a metal roof or a rubber roof, this roof coating provide long-lasting protection. To learn more about this type of roof coating, call Roofer’s Guild, a roofing network that puts you in contact with roofers throughout the United States.

What Are Elastomeric Roof Coatings?
An elastomeric roof coating is a rubberized substance spread atop roofs to help protect it from harmful elements such as sunlight and precipitation. Coatings like this also serve to prevent common problems found in aging roofs. Some of them include:
- Moisture Infiltration
- Water Pooling
Elastomeric roof coatings are available in a number of varieties, and stand as one of the consensus choices for roof restoration. Call our team at (877) 532-3852 to discuss elastomeric roof coatings and how they can improve your commercial building. At Roofer’s Guild, we’re always happy to answer questions, and are available to perform your next restoration project.
Elastomeric Roof Coating Vs Replacement
Elastomeric roof coatings are a very attractive service for a roof. If a roof is minimally damaged or a property owner wants to ensure the roof lasts a long time, investing in a roof coating is a good idea. However, there are times when an elastomeric roof coating isn’t going to work for a commercial roof. The best way to determine if a roofing system is a good candidate is if a professional roofer inspects the roof. This will involve not only visually inspecting the roof, but inspecting the insulation, as well. Using infrared moisture scanning and thermal imaging, we can determine if any leaks or moisture are on the roof or insulation. In a situation where a roofer only finds minor damage to the roof, a roof coating will be the best solution.
Unfortunately, if a roof has too much damage or is past its lifespan, it is going to require a complete roof replacement. A roof replacement will also apply to roofs that have onset problems; an elastomeric roof coating might mask the underlying issues and it can be a waste of money if a replacement is inevitable. To ensure that your roof is in good condition and a good contender for a roof coating, it is important to get annual roof maintenance and inspections. For property owners who are unsure about whether they qualify for an elastomeric roof coating or a roof replacement, you can call on the professionals at Roofer’s Guild. A roofing contractor in our roofing community will be able to inspect your roof and come up with the best solution for you roof.
The Benefits Of Roof Coatings
Roofer’s Guild is a national network of qualified commercial roofing contractors, each of which utilize Conklin roofing materials. A great number of benefits are associated with roof coatings and restorations. To begin, an elastomeric roof coating can be applied directly on top of your current roof. Additionally, the roof materials of an average business take centuries to degrade, and by keeping that waste out of dumps, you’re helping protect the environment.
An elastomeric coating also generally costs much less than a completely new roofing system, and requires a shorter application time. Coatings repair small leaks and damaged areas, while adding waterproof protection. A building owner can even choose a white elastomeric coating for more energy conserving advantages.
