Every roof, whether commercial or residential, needs all the help it can get in protecting your home or business. One easy way this can be done is with the addition of a roof coating. How exactly do roof coatings benefit your roofing system? V. Nanfito Roofing and Siding, Inc., the area’s leading roofing and siding contractor, discusses more in today’s post.
You can certainly use roof coatings to extend the service life of an old roof as you save up for a complete replacement. However, applying a coating on an old roofing system isn’t a guarantee, especially in roofs with a relatively short life span of 10 to 15 years. At this point, it might be better to replace the roof entirely instead of relying on band-aid solutions.
New Roof Protection
On the other hand, coatings are great for newly installed roofs to help achieve a longer operating life. When applied during roof installation, you’ll feel at ease knowing your new roof can withstand the weather far better than a “vanilla” roof, as it has an additional layer of protection. You should communicate with your roofing and vinyl siding contractor, V. Nanfito Roofing and Siding, Inc., regarding protective coatings when you decide to add these components to your roof.
Color plays an essential role in the heat absorption of a roof. In general, dark colors absorb more heat, while lighter colors reflect it; this means a dark-colored roof will transfer heat from the sun to the interior of your home. With roof coatings, you’ll have an opportunity to utilize reflective colors that may reduce heat absorption, lower your energy bills and make your home feel much more comfortable.
