A Look at Liquid Rubber and Its Benefits
Here’s a look at liquid rubber and its benefits for business and home owners. Whether you have a leaky roof or you want to extend the life of your garage floor, this is a product worth considering.
When applied to concrete floors, there is a significant reduction in sound. The noise reduction is also noticed when the material is applied to metal roofs. It is particularly popular among RV roof repair and trailer owners for muffling the sound of pouring rain.
When used on a roof, the standard white color reduces heat transfer to the interior of a building, trailer or vehicle. This may be a cost saving advantage when it comes to keeping an RV cool. The air conditioning will work more efficiently, reducing maintenance and other costs.
The same benefit has been seen in buildings with pre-existing asphalt-based black roofs. The white coating reduces electricity costs during the summertime and the cost of maintaining the HVAC units.
Waterproofing is a benefit in roofing and in flooring. Waterproofing is usually number one on a list about liquid rubber and its benefits. Pools of water simply cannot penetrate through the coating when it is applied correctly. The pools can be left to dry up or swept away.
Because of the waterproofing benefit, the coating is often used to reduce rust on metal roofs of all kinds. RVs, trailers, metal house roofs, free-standing garages, carports and awnings are just a few of the items that can be protected from rust, usually with a single coating.
This is one of the most long-lasting materials available. Some products are guaranteed to last for ten years without adding more layers. It has been estimated that the coating can last as much as three times longer than other materials.
Ease of Use
Second or third on a list about liquid rubber and its benefits would be ease of use. Other materials are difficult to install. It usually calls for a professional. Most do-it-yourselfers can do the job in a day, depending on the size of the job to be done. Application is much like painting. Few tools are needed.
