Roof Repair Materials

There is a long list of materials which are commonly used in roof construction; it includes metals, plastics, rubbers, fibers, glass, wood, rocks, ceramics etc. But building just a roof is not enough, its proper finishing and maintenance is something which is of foremost importance. That is why; it’s the need of time that the roofing contractors must also be familiar with the concept of roof coatings.

Roof coatings are a monolithic and fully adhered fluid applied over the roofs. If applied properly, it helps to extend the life of the roof, ultimately saving the cost of re roofing. It has many outstanding features which makes it an important component of roof construction and finishing. When applied over the roof, it acts as a top layer over the underlying roofing system. Its high elasticity allows it to expand and contract back to its original position. But being the top most layer asks for tolerating a lot of environmental effects like UV and infrared, temperature extremities like rain, hail and the physical damage caused due to these factors. Therefore the roof coatings are specially manufactured keeping in view all these factors so that maximal protection is delivered to the roof from these roof weakening causes.
