URETHANE ROOF RESTORATION COATINGS
POLYURETHANE ROOF COATINGS
Polyurethane coatings are becoming increasingly popular in the roofing market today because they provide a highly durable surface that protects the roofing system from a wide variety of conditions. Urethanes typically have higher tensile strength when compared to most other coatings, allowing the coating to resist expansion and contraction of the roof system. This can be very important in high stress areas, around penetrations, or on wall flashings where a building endures the most abuse.
Ideally, a well-designed roof will have no ponding water, but small bird baths are still common on most low slope roofs. Urethanes provide better protection in bird bath areas. Since roofs tend to fail first in areas prone to ponding water, selecting a urethane coating (in addition to creating positive drainage) is a good choice when this condition is present.
It is important to note that polyurethane coatings are broken down into two main categories: aromatic and aliphatic urethane formulations.
Aromatic urethanes can be a more cost effective choice for your roof restoration while still providing the core benefits of a urethane coating.
Aliphatic urethanes will not chalk or degrade in UV light, allowing them to maintain their appearance as well as their film integrity. They provide long-term protection from UV exposure as well as protection from other conditions.
