Reflective roof coatings can help prolong the life of existing roof systems. However, they can’t provide a long-lasting fix to existing leaks. It’s critical that you fix all known leaks with spray foam before applying an elastomeric coating. Roof Crafters offers professional roof coating installation in Reno, so you can benefit from this reflective material that increases comfort and energy efficiency. Our team of experts has served thousands when their business needs solutions they can count on.

Benefits of Elastomeric Roof Coatings
Though there are various types of elastomeric coatings, they provide similar benefits.
Consider these advantages of using roof coatings to protect your flat roof further:
- Minimize thermal shock
- Protection from UV damage
- Reduce roof temperature
- Prolong roof life
- Improve comfort
- Increase energy efficiency
As a strong barrier against water, roof coatings can prolong their lifespan by preventing leaks, ponding, and water damage. Another determinant of roof lifespan is thermal shock or the expansion and contraction of roofing materials caused by temperature changes. By minimizing the material movement, you avoid leaks or animal intrusion caused by gaps between layers.
Elastomeric coatings are reflective to protect your business against UV damage, reduce roof temperature, and increase energy efficiency. This reduces heating and cooling costs while maintaining high levels of comfort for your employees and customers. Don’t pay more to keep your commercial space comfortable when our expert elastomeric coating installation in Reno offers a long-term solution to maintain comfort while decreasing costs.

There are three types of elastomeric roof coatings to choose from acrylic, silicone, and polyurethane. Roof Crafters prefer water-based acrylic coatings because they are nearly odorless and provide reliable durability. This cost-effective option works well with almost any roof type and can be sprayed or rolled onto your roof. However, this water-based solution can become delaminated if it experiences ponding water regularly. If you need a solution in the winter, consider silicone elastomeric coatings instead, as acrylic can’t be applied in temperatures below 50 degrees.
Silicone is a more flexible material that requires only a single application for lower installation costs. Unlike acrylic material, this option is resistant to ponding, but it gets dirty quickly and will need regular maintenance to maintain its reflectiveness. If your roof is regularly traveled for HVAC maintenance or other services, consider adding a walking pad for safety, as silicone gets slippery when wet.
Polyurethane roof coatings are incredibly durable and insulating for most roof types. There are two types of polyurethane coatings, but we recommend an aliphatic coating for UV protection and dirt resistance. However, it can be difficult to spray and produces a strong odor that can disrupt customers if your HVAC system is on the roof.
No matter which of our reliable elastomeric coating services in Reno you choose, Roof Crafters is here to ensure proper application. Depending on your UV reflection and durability needs, we can help you determine which coating will meet your needs and budget.
