You may not need to replace your roof when it is starting to show its age. Instead, you can apply a protective coating to keep your roof in great shape for a long time to come. This restores your roof and keeps it from deteriorating further, as it protects it against weathering, UV radiation, heat absorption and other factors. One of the most commonly used and recommended roof restorations methods is the elastomeric coating. This is a fairly affordable way to cover your roof quickly and effectively without have to go through all the trouble of taking off your old roof and replacing it with a new one or adding a bunch of reinforcement to your roof.
Now, this only works if your roof is in relatively good shape to begin with. If your roof is riddled with leaks and structural problems, then the coating won’t do too much for it. It doesn’t make sense to coat a roof in that condition. However, you can add elastomeric coating to a roof that is in decent shape but may need repairs shortly. The coating can keep things together and prevent the roof from suffering much damage for a while.
What to Know about Elastomeric Coatings
This is a coating that is sprayed on and applied over a few hours. It’s not a long process or a terribly complicated one, but it is still important that you choose a trusted roofer to apply it. That’s because you want to ensure the coating is applied evenly to prevent problems. You also want to ensure you are getting an authentic, high quality coating that won’t break down on your shortly after it is applied.
