Roof Coatings

Roof coatings can offer extended life to your roof. There are a number of different types of roof coatings and a myriad of roof surfaces that can be coated. The roof coatings experts at The Rapids Roofers can help you make the right choices for your home or commercial building.

Just like painting any other surface, preparation is a the first step when a roof needs a coating job. Whatever you don't take care during the preparation phase will show up later as a big and potentially very costly flaw.

The procedure for roof coating is quite intuitive. We begin by clearing the region of dirt and debris. This can be done by hand with a broom. Next we remove paint chips and nasty brittle caulking by sanding.

Now, we are really ready to begin the prep work. Apply a corrosion inhibitor to those areas that are really showing rust. This prevents those same problem areas from bleeding through the coat. A rough analogy can be made to house painting prep here.

We Apply Roof Coatings Only in Dry Weather

We only apply roof coatings during dry weather. We do not attempt this procedure in stormy or threatening weather. A chance rain shower could strike and cause unevenness. That creates an unaesthetic and potentially dangerous roofing situation.

Roof coating with liquid rubber works wonders. Thanks to EPDM technology, millions of residents sleep soundly, protected from the elements. For more specific instructions, give us a call. There's an enormous suite of information at your fingertips.

We plan the job by looking at the type of surface, proper surface preparation, thickness of the roof coatings basecoat, U.V. (ultraviolet) protection requirements, topcoat choices and thicknesses, number of coats, drying time between coats, and application methods. Proper planning for your roof coatings projects will keep quality up and costs down.

We use unique protective coating materials that permanently repair and waterproof flat, pitched, galvanized, or metal roofs. This protective coating comes with a lifetime warranty.

Unlike other coatings and paint products, this strong, waterproof, adhesive rubber protective coating does not change shape with temperature extremes, and is completely impervious to moisture.
