If you are interested in installing a new roof on your home, polyurea coating offers many benefits. First, there is no need to spend a lot of time on the actual repair or rebuilding of your roof. By using polyurea coatings, the repair is quick and easy. Second, once installed, polyurea will shield the shingles from weather damage, thus extending the life of your roof. Finally, polyurea is made with a thicker consistency that can protect your roof even when it becomes wet, thus reducing rot.
Polyurea is made through the application of polyurea resin mixture onto a steel support. Two types of polyurea coating are used: polyurea flat and polyurea high-density. Both varieties of coating are cured with heat at approximately 500 degrees Fahrenheit. While polyurea flat polyurea coating requires less applying, the high-density polyurea coating needs more to give it an incredible level of protection. Once polyurea coating has been applied, the following steps are done by the roofer or manufacturer:
When polyurea coating is applied, the spray gun shoots the coating into the area to be protected. The polyurea travels in the spray gun’s stream, spreading across the surface. As the polyurea coating moves across the surface, it bonds with the surface and creates a thin vapor barrier. This layer helps to prevent moisture from reaching the roof material. When the sprayed polyurea reaches the metal flashing, the barrier breaks and flakes off, allowing the water to drain into the gutters.
Polyurea spray is often applied in areas with high humidity, such as around window sills and storage tanks. When the polyurea spray is sprayed into these areas, it creates a moisture barrier that keeps the humidity out. High humidity can cause damage to paint and the structure of the roof. If this is not taken care of immediately, it can weaken the roof and result in leaks. The moisture is also transferred into the attic and down into the walls and ceiling.
After polyurea coatings have been applied, they can last up to 40 years without needing any additional protective coatings. However, additional polyurea coatings are needed to maintain the coating’s effectiveness and protect the surface from moisture. Some coats need to be cleaned with hydrochloric acid, but many surfaces can simply be washed with warm water. Many manufacturers recommend that polyurea coatings be sprayed with a lubricant after they have been applied so that it will adhere properly to the surface and remain effective for many years. With proper surface preparation and aftercare, your polyurea coating will provide you with years of trouble-free operation.
As with any other coating, your polyurea coating will look great when it has been professionally installed, and it will continue to look good even years after it is no longer in use. Your coating should be installed by professionals who are familiar with the process, and they should give you advice on how to maintain it. All polyurea coatings are highly durable, which means that they can stand up to high winds and heavy rain, and they will stay looking new. You should have your coating applied by professionals who follow industry standards and provide quality service, so that your polyurea coating will provide you with years of trouble-free operation.
