coating1bnaweb-300x145For a strong house, it is important to have a strong foundation and a sturdy roof. The base needs to be taken care of while the house is in the initial stages of construction, but it is never too late to mend your roof. 

Roofs can be made using various construction materials:

  • metals
  • tiles
  • plastic
  • fibers
  • ceramics
  • glass
  • wood
  • stones
  • and more

Apart from these materials it is important to be aware of the roof coatings. Roof coating is an important procedure as it imparts strength and durability to the roof. Moreover, coating can be done anytime. The procedure of coating a roof is a little complicated. With advancement in technology, the roof coating companies are bringing out new formulations and newer technologies. 

One of the most important benefits of choosing a roof coating is the cost savings. A roof coating can transform an old and decaying roof into a nice new looking roof for about half the cost of a complete roof replacement.

Another benefit is the highly improved protection the roof gets. The roof of a home is continuously exposed to sunlight and harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. Due to this exposure the surface coating of roof tiles, roof shingles, or any other roofing material gets oxidized. This leads to chemical breakdown which in-turn weakens the roof. In addition to the sunrays, rain and moisture further damages the roof via corrosion and contraction forces.

Basic roof maintenance is important, but unfortunately home owners neglect the proper maintenance of their roof and later repent while paying a fortune in getting it repaired. By the time the roof surface has corroded completely, the roof starts leaking requiring extensive repair work or needs a complete reroof!

The best way to maintain or restore your roof is the application of roof coatings. This effectively generates a second membrane on the roof surface which acts as a ultra violet-proof and waterproof layer.
