As the weather temperatures continue to fall, building contractors are becoming busier as a result of the building damages that the cold snap brings. We take a look into roof coatings, the options available and if the introduction of liquid roof coatings are a worthy investment.
Liquid roof coatings have been developed over many years to help commercial roofing systems withstand adverse weather conditions and provide a level of protection that other coating systems simply cannot compete with. We take a look at liquid coatings and try to find an answer to the question that is on everyone’s lips: are liquid roof coatings worth it?
What is liquid roofing?
Liquid roofing systems have been available to commercial building contractors for well over 40-years. The liquid roof coatings are designed to build a bond with the structures membrane and provide a protective layer between the building and weather conditions.
There are many forms of liquid roofing systems available; these can be applied on site by a team of roofing professionals.
Benefits of Liquid Roofing
There are many benefits of liquid roof coatings. However, the most beneficial include strong levels of waterproofing and increased roof life.
The seamless, monolithic membrane offers a truly faultless waterproof structure. A monolithic membrane allows a commercial roof to expand and contract and this is critical for a commercial roof structure. All roofs must be able to expand and contract efficiently. The majority of commercial roofs have seams or nail sin place to handle the contraction – however; these can lead to leaks and damages.
Liquid roof coatings are great for extending the roof life of a building. Naturally, roof panels tend to have a small life span but can be heavily improved with a sustainable roof coating. The coatings applied are also incredibly environmentally friendly and will reduce the amount of time and money spent of roofing maintenance.
