Does Roof Coatings Stop Leaks?

When you notice leaking on the inside of a roof ceiling there could be several reasons for why the water is coming through the Roof itself.

Roof coatings are a great way to seal and protect your Roof but it is important to have a Roofing specialist assess the whole Roof to see where the potential leak could be coming from, is there cracked tiles, lifted sheeting, blockages in guttering or downpipes that need to be cleared or guttering needing to be replaced. When speaking to a professional Roofing Specialist they will not suggest to just paint over a surface to seal your leaks as they would know if there is something that could be causing the problem.

Benefits of Roof Coatings

  • Increased Roof Life
  • Reduced Energy
  • Aesthetic Improvements
  • Solar Panels

Increased Roof Life

When any repairs have been corrected to your Roof or gutters and downpipes you can be assured that once the Roof coating has been applied, the underneath surface will all be in good working order which will give your Roof a longer life that you can enjoy.

Reduced Energy

A reflective coating on a Roof surface will reduce temperatures in a home or business space and will help with the over working of your air-conditioning units. This will give overall comfort for all who reside inside the building too.

Aesthetic Improvements

Looking at a faded or peeling roof isn’t the most appealing, even if there is no damage to the roof surface itself. Appearances say a lot so to have a Roof that gives that appeal factor and will give more value for selling purposes.

Solar Panels

Given the life guarantee of 25 years for solar panels, check with Roof specialist about the requirements for re application of a coating if you are getting panels installed after the coating on your roof.
