Roof coatings are an excellent way to protect and preserve your roof membrane, typically at a fraction of the cost of a new roof system.

Roof coatings come in a variety of types with acrylics and silicones being two of the more popular options. Each has it's own benefits based upon the Owners requirements regarding price, length of warranty, and site conditions. Most coatings can also be color tinted to match a buildings color scheme, to designate a high traffic area, or for safety's sake. 

A coating project is considered a restoration/repair by the IRS and as such can be totally expensed in the current fiscal year as opposed to expensing it over the 39 years that is required for a reroof. 


To see if one of the high value coating systems would work on your building call your local branch of Service Works - Your Full Service Roofing Contractor.

The Benefits Of Roof Coatings


The role of roof coatings in institutional and commercial facilities has expanded in recent years as more maintenance and engineering managers have turned to the products in an effort to protect roofs from the damage caused by the elements, such as ultraviolet radiation. But as financial considerations continue to put pressure on managers, their challenge is to focus on products and technology that deliver the most benefits to the organization for the investment.


By better understanding the potential financial and sustainability benefits of roof coatings, managers can be in a position to make a stronger case for applying roof coatings to their facilities.


The presence of cool roofs on older, poorly insulated buildings can produce tangible benefits, according to one study of New York City buildings. The study found that the application of a white coating to a dark metal roof or a black membrane roof can pay for itself with reduced cooling needs in five years. That said the actual payback is site specific, due to the variability of conditions and surroundings. In hotter climates, or where air pollution is heavier, more savings are possible.

Now is the perfect time to inspect your roof for any deficiencies in the field or flashings, and to remove any debris that may have been blown across your roof, or clogged the drains.
