Roof Coatings for Metal Roofs

Roof Coatings for Metal Roofs

Below is an article discussing coatings that may be applied to metal roofs. GRS services metal roofs throughout Canada; our roofing services are available in Toronto, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Regina, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Canmore, Kelowna, Vancouver, Whistler and points between.

The Roof Coating part of the roofing industry has changed dramatically. Roof coatings are now available (due to nanotechnology) that coat metal roofs, flat roofs, and other various of roof systems. General Roofing Systems Canada specializes in roof coatings.

Roof Coatings fall in to a couple of categories;

1) Elastomeric Roof Coating (White Reflective Roof Coating)
2) Liquid Rubber Roof Coating (Black Roof Coating)

Elastomeric coatings for roofs are excellent if you need solar reflectivity. If your roofing system or building needs to cool, an elastomeric coating is ideal. We use elastomeric roof coatings on flat roof systems when we coat the roof with spray on foam roofing (SPF Roofing) or in some cases over flat roof membranes. Elastomeric roof coating is also widely used on metal roofing.

Liquid Rubber roof coating we use primarily on metal roofing for metal roof leaks and metal roof maintenance. However, on flat roof systems a rubber coating can meet certain requirements at times. The new liquid rubber coatings bring amazing results. Liquid rubber coatings GRS uses are made specific for us. These roof coatings have 900% elongation and do not break down in UV. They are bulletproof and the seams on metal roofing systems and the roof openings don’t leak after application.

Our blog also has a number of articles on roof coatings and various job site reports from the roofers in the field using the roof coatings hands on, search “roof coating” or your preferred search in the search box provided at the top right side of this blog.

Photos are starting to come in of an Industrial Metal Roof Coating project we have underway in Leduc, Alberta.

It wasn’t long ago that if someone wanted a Metal Roof Coating that would perform and last, we would have to shy away from engaging in a contract with a client. Quite frankly, the roof coating technology wasn’t what it is now. Modern day technology allows roofing contractors like us to literally coat a roof with liquid rubber and when the roof coating dries, it becomes a monolithic rubber membrane. It carries a 10 year warranty and is bullet proof.

Roof Coating, Industrial Roof, Metal Roof, Leduc

This industrial building in Leduc had us start the metal roof coating process late in 2010. Then, winter set in so our roof coating crew couldn’t continue until this spring. The rubber coating is perfect, even after having been coated and installed on this industrial metal roof right when winter set in. When we came back this spring it was perfectly intact, it adheres to the metal roof perfectly, it stretches and doesn’t crack, and it does not break down with UV. Our review of the new elastomeric rubber roof coatings is that they work, they are cost sensible, and are an excellent way to gain years on your metal roof repair and maintenance and allows metal roof owners to extend replacement for years if not decades into the future.

As this metal roof coating project continues in Leduc, we will publish photos and reviews, and next week we have other roof coatings occurring in Lloydminster, Alberta and other parts of Alberta on Industrial Metal Roofs that we will document for potential users of the products.
