Metal Roof Coatings

Metal roofs are popular because of their strength. However, they all age and rust eventually. Get your roof coated before it's too late.

Coating a metal roof and a flat roof differ in several ways, including:

  1. Surface Texture: Metal roofs typically have a more irregular surface texture than flat roofs, which are usually smoother. This texture can affect how coatings adhere to the surface and how well they protect against corrosion.

  2. Expansion and Contraction: Metal roofs expand and contract more than flat roofs due to changes in temperature. This movement can cause coatings to crack or peel over time, so coatings for metal roofs need to be designed to withstand this stress.

  3. Rust Prevention: Metal roofs are more prone to rust than flat roofs, so coatings for metal roofs need to be formulated with rust inhibitors to protect against corrosion.

  4. UV Resistance: Metal roofs are more likely to be exposed to direct sunlight than flat roofs, which can cause coatings to break down over time. Coatings for metal roofs should be UV-resistant to prevent degradation.

  5. Color: Metal roofs are available in a wide range of colors, but coatings for metal roofs can also be used to change the color or appearance of the roof. In contrast, flat roofs are typically not visible, so coatings for flat roofs may not need to be as aesthetically pleasing.

In summary, while coatings for both metal roofs and flat roofs can offer protection and improve energy efficiency, they need to be formulated to meet the specific needs of each type of roof.
