5 benefits of roof coatings

Coating your roof is an easy and cost-effective way to protect the existing materials and stop water getting through. With this comes a range of benefits, which it’s important to weigh up before making the right decision for your property…

1. Reduced cost

A coating spray applied in a thin layer across the surface of your roof, provides a fully sealed layer on top of your existing roof materials. This makes the roof fully waterproof, stopping rain getting through and keeping your roof doing its primary job.

Roof coatings basically act as a form of maintenance, giving your roof a new lease of life. That means you won’t need to fork out for costly repairs or even a full roof replacement, so you could save a significant amount of money.

2. Minimised disruption

Once water penetrates your roof, it’s only a matter of time before things get worse. It could lead to more leaks in different parts of your roof or cause damage within your property.

By keeping your roof working, coatings prevent the scenario where your roof gets so bad it needs major work to fix it. This allows you to sidestep the disruption where you or your tenants have to leave the property while work is carried out.

3. Peace of mind

Above all else, roof coatings provide total peace of mind that your property is safe from water ingress and damage. While it’s hard to put a price on this assurance, it means you can focus on what you do best.

With a 15-year guarantee, you get that assurance long into the future. Not to mention the time saved worrying about your roof and repeatedly organising repairs.

4. And actual peace…

Using a cork-based roof coating, you’ll benefit from cork’s natural sound insulation qualities. Whether it’s heavy rain, pounding hailstone or just the howl of the wind above your building, your roof coating can reduce the amount of noise coming in from outside, giving you a more peaceful environment for work, rest or play.

5. Energy efficiency

It’s not just sound that struggles to pass through an effective coating. It can also reduce the amount of heat that escapes from your property. Again, cork is naturally insulative so the coating will add a significant thermal barrier to your roof.

With less heat escaping, it will be easier to maintain a comfortable temperature inside your property. This could also reduce your energy bills in the long run.
