Which Flat Roof Coatings Provide the Best Results?

Is your flat roof leaking? You might think you need an extensive, expensive repair job that will put a dent in your company’s finances. Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be the case. Flat roof coatings have come a long way in terms of extending the lifespan of your roof. However, not every commercial roofing contractor is an expert in liquid roofing or flat roof repair. Champion Services Roof Rescue is. We know which options are the best for your particular commercial roofing job.

What Are My Options?

There are many different types of flat roof coatings on the market. A general rule is that all of these coatings are weatherproof and can provide massive energy savings. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of several popular types of liquid roofing.

  • Foam – If you’re looking for a cheap solution, this puts the least strain on your finances. On the other hand, cheap isn’t always best. Yes, foam roof coatings have a long life expectancy. But improper application in even one area can cost you dearly later on. For these reasons, it may not be the best technique for your commercial roof restoration.
  • Silicone – Silicone roof coatings correct slopes that promote water ponding. This material will preserve your roof’s integrity over an extended period of time. There’s very little waste, making this a truly green roofing solution.
  • Water-based – Liquid roofing has the advantage of adhering to almost any surface, even if it contains moisture. Many people choose this method because of the self-healing properties of the material. There’s no need to waste time on maintenance.

Ultimately, the best way to determine which one of these materials works in your case is to have a professional inspect your building.
