Why You Need to Add a Coating to Your Metal Roof
Stop that leaky roof today! If your building has a metal roof, you may be able to fix it without the cost of installing a whole new roof. Sealing it with a metal roof coating may be all that is necessary to reap substantial monetary (not to mention comfort) benefits.
Made with seams and fasteners, metal roofs may hold up well under storms, and other bad weather conditions but that can sometimes result in leaks or lost interior air. Luckily there is an easy fix to this problem. At Rosie’s Roofing and Restoration, we are experts in extending the lifespan of your metal roof you save you money and the hassle of a total replacement job.
Metal Roof Coatings Save the Day!
Why retrofit your aging roof when simply applying the right kind of coating offers you the benefit of solid waterproofing as well as energy savings? If you haven’t heard of this before, it is time to learn more.
Over time, the seals and fasteners that connect a metal roof may allow water to penetrate. We use an Elastomeric Coating (resembling flex seal) at Rosie’s Roofing and Restoration to help fill those cracks and crevices and stop leaks permanently.
Made of a water-based liquid dual rubber, our roofing coating expands more than 1000 percent which allows it to move with the surface and stop cracks and peeling down the line. This creates an impermeable bond that lasts.
Of course, leaking isn’t the only problem metal roof owners experience. Poor energy efficiency can also become a problem as the roof ages. And that can cost you thousands over the lifetime of your roof.
Once the seals are broken on a metal roof, air can escape from inside, replaced by air from the outside. This can make it harder to heat and cool the building. Sealing these cracks (no matter how small they may be) is vital to boosting the energy efficiency in your home or commercial building.
Once the coating is applied, the air stays where it belongs.
Finding the Right Expert
While applying a roof coating can help to restore your roof and keep both air and water from penetrating the surface, it is important that you hire a qualified professional team that knows the proper way to apply the coating. Otherwise, the problem may remain. The expert crew at Rosie’s Roofing and Restoration know the importance of applying a 10 ml base coat to fill those cracks and crevices, followed by another 10 ml top coat to protect the roof from dangerous UV rays and weather.
