Elastomeric roof coatings - A roof for life?

Elastomeric roof coatings last longer than most flat roof materials. They have rubber-like properties that return to their original dimensions after they are stretched or deformed during normal shifting of the structure, as the coating expands and contracts with the surface to which it is applied.

Over time a roof will degrade from heat, sunlight, cracking, and expansion and contraction. Historically, roofing contractors would tear-off the aging roof and replace it every 15 to 20 years. Alternatively, with regular maintenance such as the occasional cleaning and re-coating every 10-15 years, elastomeric coatings can last the lifetime of the building.

Gaining an additional 5 years of roof service life reduces the cost of roofing by 20% or more, and significantly reduces landfill waste from roofing, which represents approximately 4% of the total volume of solid wastes in the United States.

Nothing lasts forever, but proper maintenance can extend the life of just about everything - especially an elastomeric roof coating system.
