What You Need To Know About Flat Roof Coatings

Posted On: Dec-10-2011
By: Patton Services/Conklin Roofing Systems, Tremont, Illinois

Flat roof coatings like those from Conklin can be a good investment for many facilities. A flat roof coating can extend the life of a roof because it lowers the roof temperature. It can also lead to additional energy savings as the temperature is reduced.

Still, because there are so many different types of roofs in use today, specifying a flat roof coating isn't easy. Different substrates require different coatings. A coating’s adhesion might depend as much on the substrate’s characteristics as on the coating type. In general, it is more difficult for coatings to adhere to hard, smooth, chemically inert surfaces and easier on rough, irregular, chemically active surfaces.

A coating’s adhesion to a substrate often improves when the installers put down a primer or base coat. Coating manufactures recommend certain primers or base coats to match a specific topcoat with a specific substrate. You should use only the base coat or primer specified by the coating’s manufacturer.
