Coating Your Flat Or Low Slope Roof With Gold Standard
We work all over the greater Chicago area replacing roofs, repairing siding, and building all of it from the ground up. The best part is seeing our customers so delighted knowing they have a roof they can rely on to take on the weather built by a company they can trust. But even with both residential and commercial properties, not every roof is the same. At Gold Standard Restorations, we know that when building a roof for your home or condominium, there will be changes in the pitch and some areas may be steeper than others. The same goes for every business’s roof as well and while it may seem flat at first glance, there is always some sort of angle to get water flowing to the drain to prevent standing water. What many owners don’t realize is that when these types of flat or low-slope roofs are built, layering them with water or solvent-based coating will significantly improve water flowing off the roof. Some coatings will even help reflect harmful UV rays decreasing the need for air conditioning in your home or business and many are made to help decrease the damage done by hail because of how they are made.
Flat / Low Slope
Why It’s Important To Coat Your Roof
With all the new developments in building houses and businesses and the different types of roofs being used across the country, there is a multitude of options to consider before pulling the trigger, especially for your roof. While many businesses apply a flat roof because of the architectural benefits, houses, townhomes, and condominiums mainly use a layered shingle because of the style of the roof itself. For many houses, garages are built off to the side or front of the foundation of the property, and covered outdoor decks are getting more and more popular everywhere. When these structures are brought into the construction of a home, they are typically built with a flat or low-slope style roof to save on materials and to expand the square footage of that area giving you more room to move around. However, with residential properties, low-slope roofs can affect draining water during the rain and snowstorms we get and this is where coating your roof can greatly help with getting that water off your roof.
At GSR, our professional contractors possess the knowledge of the many choices you have for what kind of coating to use for your roof whether you’d like more protection against the nasty hail damage we get or if you’d like to stay within a budget.
How To Know Which Roof Coating To Use
For all the different materials, there are many factors that need to be considered before choosing a coating, like what kind of weather your roof endures throughout the year and how severe the rain or hail can be. Even for some homeowners that have to encounter the rough elements that may have to stay within a tight budget, there are still quality materials that can be used to coat your roof. This is where our experts can guide you through the process of what style of shingle is used for your low-slope or flat roof, what kind of coating will work best within your budget, and most importantly, getting it done right the first time so it lasts.
