Roof coatings have become essential for protecting and prolonging the life of residential and commercial roofs in Australia and there are now many different types of roof coatings available on the market, with some examples being: acrylic, asphalt, polyurethane and silicone coatings. Some of the biggest advantages of applying a new roof coating in Perth include:
1. Extending the life of your roof
Depending on where you live and your surroundings, your home and roof might be affected by the elements (e.g., wind, rain, hail and dust) more than others. Roof coatings can seal and waterproof your roof, helping to prevent significant water damage as well as mould from growing and spreading.
Often it turns out to be much cheaper to have a new roof coating applied professionally every few years than it is to replace the entire roof due to damage. Coatings are also typically less disruptive than entire roof replacements.
2. Reduce energy usage
Certain roof coatings have special pigments that reflect sunlight. This helps to reduce the temperature inside for occupants as well as the need for air conditioning – benefitting both the environment and your pocket.
3. Gain curb appeal
Roof coatings can really transform a roof and may increase your property’s value. While white remains a popular option for its reflectivity, there are many different roof coating colours available on the market, so you could opt for an exciting new colour or simply enhance your existing one.
Something to consider
Roof coatings should only be applied during periods where the weather is completely dry. The temperature should be somewhere between 14 and 45 degrees Celsius, and a few days should have passed since the last rainfall.
