What Are Cool Roof Coatings & Why Do You Need Them?

Cool roof coatings are a waterproof material that’s applied to an existing roof to reflect ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. Roof coatings can also protect a roof from the elements and extend a roof’s lifespan by several years. Darker roofing materials can absorb heat and be up to 90 degrees hotter than lighter or reflective roof coatings. This heat ages your roof and increases the indoor temperature of your building.

With cool roof coatings applied by the roofing professionals at Coleman Roofing, you can prevent the need for a premature replacement of your roof due to damage from heat and sunlight. Roof coatings can be applied to commercial or residential roofs.

Types of Cool Roof Coatings We Offer

At Coleman Roofing, we feature a variety of cool roof coatings to keep your roof and your indoor temperature cooler and to prevent premature aging from the sun’s rays. Our cool roof coatings include:

  • Silicone. This coating is ideal for areas that get a lot of rain and can be more effective than some other roof coating materials.
  • Acrylic. The most common cool roof coating, the quality of this material will vary by formula, but all will enhance protection from the elements and reflect the sun’s rays.
  • Polyurethane. This material is ideal for areas that receive a lot of hailstorms or surfaces that are walked on, as it has a higher resistance to abrasion.
  • Asphalt. Asphalt cool roof coatings are ideal for roofs that are asphalt-based or bitumen roofs.

Regardless of what type of roofing material you have, a roof coating can help lower its temperature and increase energy efficiency!
