As a Certified Roofing Installer, Jaymar Roofing Services specializes in commercial roofing and roof coatings for metal roofs, modified bit, TPO, and EPDM.
These coatings range from acrylic elastomeric, and urethanes to silicone, all designed to keep the lid on roof replacement cost. These coatings can be applied while your business continues to operate. Roof coatings are often a fraction of the cost of roof replacement.
Our multi-service construction company is certified and licensed in these applications. Mechanics have been factory trained by the manufacturers and are coating specialists.
As you’re considering a commercial roofing project, be sure to take a look at Roofing FAQs you should ask a roofing contractor.
Elastomeric Coatings are liquid applied, fully adhered, “rubber-like” protective membranes. They can be applied as part of a roof or wall system during the construction stage, in retrofit, or as a maintenance application. Both primer and finish coats can be spray applied to ensure quick application, consistent appearance and a durable finish. Reduce your energy costs with our Energy Star designated elastomeric coatings that reflect up to 90% of the heat from the sun. This heat reduction protects and extends the useful life of the roof by limiting thermal shock.
Acrylic Roof Coatings
Acrylic polymers are formulated to be tough and hard but also flexible. They are usually water based and dry to a rubbery like finish. They are a fully adhered elastomeric membrane that’s formed to attach to the roof. They do not usually hold up well to ponding water but work well in an area that drains well.
They are usually installed as a coating between 15-30 mils thick, are seamless and often use a fabric membrane on joints. Acrylic polymers offer good UV reflectivity and elasticity and have low VOC’s making them a green product often with Energy Star ratings. Acrylics usually wear 1-2 mils per year similar to latex paint but can offer from 10-20 warranties depending on the manufacturer’s specifications. Like all roof coatings there several steps to proper preparation of the surfaces and proper installation to guarantee a quality product for many years.
Urethane is also known as thermoplastic polyurethane. It is a thermoplastic elastomeric (TPE) that combines the positive properties of rubber and plastic. Aliphatic urethane does not degrade in ultraviolet light and it delivers greater visual clarity. Mixed with titanium dioxide, this material creates an Energy Star rated roof coating that reflects up to 90% of sunlight. It also holds up under pooling water and direct sunlight.
Silicone coatings are single-component, moisture-curing silicone rubber roof coating systems designed for use on sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam or other roof surfaces. These coatings can be spray applied or hand rolled if the job is small enough. Smallest repairs can be applied with a paint brush.
Silicones are inorganic by nature and thus imperceptible to UV radiation. Unlike almost any other coating, silicone coatings do not contain UV stabilizers. Other lower cost systems may not contain enough UV stabilizers, with resulting short service life, often not even exceeding 5 years. Properly applied, silicones may last for 20 years and more.
Also, silicones cure quickly. In the event of changing weather, even heavy rain, coatings as new as 1 hour will not cause runoff. By comparison, many acrylics truly require a minimum of 24 hours between application and the first rain. Silicones offer excellent tensile strength and elongation. They perform well in extremely cold as well as very hot weather. Many customers broadcast granules into the freshly applied silicones for an even tougher roof.
