Conditions for Successful Roof Coating Application

Many residential and commercial properties apply roof coatings with the aim of prolonging the roof’s lifespan, controlling energy costs and protecting interior operations and components. However, it is important to note that these coatings can only deliver these benefits if they are applied properly on the roofing surface. Here at Coleman Roofing, we use American Weatherstar formulated acrylic roofing coatings because of their superior protection against the elements and substantial energy efficiency. That said, here are the necessary conditions for a successful roof coating application:

Conditions for Successful Roof Coating Application


Weather is one of the biggest complicating factors when it comes to applying roof coatings. That’s why the first step is to choose a roof coating that is best suited to the local climate. This can be the difference between a failed application and one that delivers energy savings, lower rooftop temperatures and prolongs a roof’s performance life.

Roof Coatings and Cold Weather

Colder weather often requires a change in specification considerations for roof coatings. This is because the viscosity of bitumen is sensitive to changes in temperature, becoming thinner and more fluid when hot, and thicker and more viscous in the cold. Whether you have  asphalt or metal roofing Coleman Roofing, will help you make sure you are getting the appropriate roof coating.

Dry Conditions and Roof Coatings Application

It is important to pick the right time for the roof coating application. You should schedule the application when no rain is forecast for the next 2 to 3 days after the application has taken place, so that there will be ample time for curing.
