Commercial Metal Roof Restoration Treatment Wichita, KS
The best coatings for metal roofs is silicone. It extends the life of the flat and low-sloped surfaces common to commercial buildings. Flat surfaces tend to retain rainwater and heat. A coated metal roof will keep equipment and furnishings dry and will make interiors more comfortable.
A metal roof offers durability and strength at affordable prices for commercial uses. However, it can corrode over time at seams and intrusions such as screws and fasteners. A protective layer has many benefits such as keeping out moisture, lowering energy costs, and improving the roofs ability to resist the elements.
The best Coatings for Metal Roofing on your Commercial Roof are Elastomeric
Elastomeric coatings are, as the name implies, elastic. This is important in regions where temperatures fluctuate greatly from season to season. Coatings have proven ability to keep out damaging moisture. Elastomeric coatings can be sprayed onto any flat or low sloped metal roof.
On How Elastomeric Coatings Protect Your Roof From The Elements
Elastomerics are one of the best coatings for metal because as the substrate expands and contracts according to the temperature, the elastic top coat moves with it. It does not become hard or brittle and is not prone to the kind of cracking that allows moisture to seep in. Even if ponding occurs on a flat surface, the water will be sealed out. Coatings are also highly effective at preventing powerful winds from catching under seams and lifting panels.
Elastomeric Coatings Have The Added Benefit Of Being Reflective
Most elastomeric coatings are white, or light colored, making them reflective. This design cuts energy costs by reducing the surface temperature of the roof. This features comprises what we call “cool roof” technology. According to recent ENERGY STAR product ratings, the finished application can cut surface temperatures by as much as 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
