Did You Know?
The purpose of roof coating is to protect the roof from the sun. Roof coating does not keep water out of your home and will not repair a leak if one exists.
About Roof Coatings
Without the roof coating, the roof will deteriorate more quickly and result in premature leakage, but it is the job of the roof and the flashings to keep you dry.
That's why a quality roof coating project involves extensive preparation work before the coating is applied. Here are some of the things we do before we apply any sort of roof coating:
- Re-sealing the penetrations
- Repairing the flashings
- Identifying and repairing any cracks or openings in the roofing material
- Thoroughly cleaning the roof surface.
This prep work often makes the project more expensive, but is the difference between a quality roofing project that prevents leaks and one that doesn't.
How Often Do Roofs Need Recoating?
Typically, a built-up roof will need routine maintenance and re-coating every 4-6 years. Ponding areas may need more frequent re-coating.
Built-up roofs should be checked at least once a year for developing issues.
At Roofsavers Locke Roofing we believe in taking a pro-active approach to roof maintenance and prefer to eliminate problems before they develop into leaks.
