As a roofing contractor that offers roof recoating services, Stapleton Roofing often gets asked about what roof recoating is and why it is sometimes preferable to roof replacement. We answer these and other frequently asked questions in this blog.

Frequently Asked Questions: Roof Recoating

What Is Roof Recoating?

Roof recoating is a process that applies a protective coat to an existing roof. While the application process is similar to repainting, roof coatings are much thicker than paint, though they offer similar benefits.

What Are the Benefits of Roof Recoating?

A properly applied roof coat can help extend your roof’s life span by increasing its strength and durability. Certain kinds of coatings have “cool roof” properties, which help minimize the heat absorbed through the roof, resulting in lower energy consumption and a more comfortable interior. They also protect your roof against corrosion and deterioration. If you have flat roof with membrane roofing, roof coatings also help seal in the seams.

Will Roof Coatings Stop Leaks?

Roof coatings are thick enough to fill pinhole leaks upon application, but bigger leaks have to be repaired first. Fortunately, our services as roofers include expert repairs. We will ensure your roof is 100% ready for recoating before the first coat is applied.

I Will Replace My Roof Soon. Can I Have It Recoated After Installation?

Yes. In fact, a newly installed roof is perfect for recoating. You get to enjoy the new-roof look and performance for much longer, and this may even reduce maintenance requirements, resulting in even further savings.

Can I Choose a Different Color?

If you have a metal roof, you can forget about repainting it and go straight to recoating. Roof coatings are available in a wide selection of colors, meaning you choose whatever exterior color palette you want while still enjoying the benefits of a coated roof. Plus, roof coatings do not blister or peel, freeing you from the cycle of scraping and repainting.
