When it comes to maintaining and extending the life of your roof, selecting the right roof coating is crucial. At Advantage Remodeling and Roofing, we emphasize quality in the industry and offer insights into the best roof coatings available. Here are five essential coatings to consider:

1. Silicone Coatings

  • High Solids Silicone Dispersion: Known for excellent weather resistance.
  • Durability: Maintains flexibility, preventing brittleness.

2. Acrylic Coatings

  • UV Protection: Initially designed for urethane foam applications, now widely used on single-ply and metal roofing systems.
  • Flexibility: Accommodates structural instability of roof membranes.
  • Weather Resistance: Provides protection against radiation and severe weather conditions.

3. Polyurethane Coatings

  • Strength: Superior ratings for durability and resistance to foot traffic.
  • Application: Used over existing roof membranes, enhancing longevity.

4. Asphalt Coatings

  • Types: Available as emulsions or solvent-based cutbacks, aluminized or black.
  • Weather Suitability: Effective in cold and adverse weather conditions.
  • Longevity: Aluminized versions offer reflective and UV-resistant properties, lasting up to 10-20 years.

5. Fluid-Applied Asphaltic Rubber

  • Monolithic Barrier: Creates a fully bonded, elastic, waterproof membrane.
