Roof Coating
Posted on May 31, 2019 by Anderson Industrial Roofing

As a business owner, you want your commercial roof to protect your business for years to come. Sure, you could build your roof with the strongest materials, but that will only take you so far. For extra protection, a roof coating is an option that business owners make that adds several years to their roof’s life.
Roof coatings expand and retract over roof materials and prevent ruptures and leaks in your roof. There are several options available for roof coating, and all of them have their perks. Here are five of the most popular options and how they could help prolong your roof’s life.

Acrylic Coating

Acrylic coating is one of the more popular options because they are suitable for most climates and provide a cost-effective solution to protect against the elements. Acrylic coating is a water-based formula that varies based on the type of roof it is applied to and the temperature conditions of the building’s region.

Polyurethane Coating

Polyurethane coating is a coating that is durable, easy to maintain and very resistant to ponding water when compared to other coating options. Polyurethane coatings are typically white and provide a cooling effect to the roof, dramatically increasing its lifeline.
Some Polyurethane coatings have a strong chemical odor to them, but there are chemically balanced types of this coating that can be found in the SPF options that Anderson Industrial Roofing offers.


Silicone coatings experience nearly no erosion and do not run the risk of becoming hard and brittle. A silicone coating is best suited for climates that are humid. This is due to the fact that they are moisture-cured and are one of the best coating selections to resist ponding water on a rooftop.


Asphalt coating is adaptable to most weather conditions and fares well in the Texas heat during the summer. This type of coating reflects U.V. rays and reduces the energy usage of the building’s overall cooling systems.


Bitumen is the cheapest option for an effective roof coating. It is not only budget-friendly but it is also compatible with most roofing materials. This is an excellent solution for an industrial roof that may need a little touch-up rather than an entire replacement. Avoid costly repairs and create a seamless affordable barrier on your roof with a Bitumen-based coating.
