Roof Coating Specialists Serving Tucson, AZ & Surrounding Areas
Your roof is a critical asset, the primary security between you and the elements. Protecting and restoring your roof through roof coating is a smart way to safeguard your investment and your comfort.
What Is Roof Coating?
The roof coating is the last layer of material applied to a roof. Coating materials are diverse, but all coatings are extremely pliant. It’s this elasticity that enables the coating to revert to its original shape after being hit by hailstones, branches, or other debris. In addition to adding an extra protective blanket, the roof coat gives a freshness to your roof, adding to its curb appeal.
The kind of roof coating used depends on the roofing material. For asphalt shingles, we would apply a granule coating to protect the shingles from UV light. For a spray foam roof, a rubberized coating works best. Our roofers have the experience you need to help you choose the right coating for your roof.
Why Is Roof Coating Important?
The sun is intense in the Tucson area, and for roughly 10 hours a day, your roof bears the brunt of the heat. The sunlight can deplete the oils used in your roofing material, causing weak spots that need repair and reducing the efficiency of your AC unit. Roof coating neutralizes these effects, giving your roof the protection it needs to last a long time. Here are several good reasons why roof coating is important:
- Resists abrasion, impact, and corrosion
- Stops leaks that can damage your roof
- Reflects the heat, cooling down the temperature of your roof and lowering your electric bill
- Reduces noise
- Reduces heat islands by counteracting the heat buildup stemming from the dense concentration of asphalt, concrete, and masonry
- Pays for itself in about seven years
