Applying an architectural coating to your roof can dramatically extend its useful life and provide an additional layer of protection against the damage caused by water and UV rays. However, achieving these benefits requires careful application by a skilled professional who takes the time to ensure that everything is done properly. Skipping even a single step can compromise the integrity of your coating, and it may even damage your roof.
The Initial Survey
Before performing a thorough inspection, your contractor should find out what type of roof you have and what your goals may be. Depending on your needs, you may need an architectural coating designed to have additional waterproofing, enhanced sun reflection properties, or products that make your roof more attractive when viewed from the ground.
The Pre-Installation Inspection
To ensure they bring all of the necessary materials and schedule enough time for the job, your contractor should perform a thorough inspection of your roof. They should note all signs of damaged insulation, as well as other problems like loose screws and rusted pieces of metal.
Preparation for Installation
On the day the work is to be done, the team will remove and patch rusted metal, repair damaged insulation, and apply the primer. During this step of the process, a sealer is applied to all seams and fasteners before the coating is applied. Once it cures, the coating should never need to be re-applied, and it will likely add several years to the useful life of the roof itself.
