Benefits of White Roof Coatings
Restore it, don’t replace it.
White roof coatings are specially designed to protect the surface of a roof with a highly reflective, liquid-applied membrane. They are typically made of acrylic, hybrid, or silicone technology, and are either rolled or sprayed onto a roof. Once applied, the coatings cure to form a seamless water-resistant or waterproof layer that protects the underlying roofing substrate from the elements and helps to reflect sunlight and heat away from the building.
White roof coatings can be used on a variety of flat or low-slope roofing substrates including metal, asphalt, concrete, single-ply, and rubber membranes. They are ideal solutions for commercial, industrial, and residential applications.
Here are five benefits you can count on when you choose a white roof coating:
- Energy Efficiency: White roof coatings reflect sunlight, reducing the amount of heat absorbed by the roof and reducing the amount of energy needed to cool your building. This results in lower energy bills – up to 40% – and a more comfortable indoor environment.
- Increased Longevity: White roof coatings protect the roof from UV rays, which can cause the roof to deteriorate over time. By adding a layer of protection, white roof coatings can extend the life of your roof by up to 50%.
- Improved Sustainability: White roof coatings are an environmentally friendly solution because they reduce the amount of energy needed to cool structures and therefore reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Easy Maintenance: White roof coatings are low maintenance since they are designed to be durable and long-lasting. They can also be easier to clean because some are formulated to help prevent dirt and dust from settling on the surface.
- Cost-Effective: White roof coatings are an affordable solution costing much less than standard roofing materials. In addition, they can help to reduce energy costs over time, which can result in long-term savings.
If you're looking for a way to improve your roof and save money in the process, white roof coatings are worth considering for flat and low-slope roofs.
