Roof Waterproofing

The Benefits of Roof Waterproofing and Custom Roof Coatings

If you are having a new roof installed, there are many roofing add-ons that you may wish to have installed. Unfortunately, people are not very familiar with roofing terms and roofing materials, and as such, they may not understand what a roofer is referring to when offering products. Roof waterproofing and custom roof coatings are two products that you may want to consider.

Roof waterproofing is a roofing material that is added underneath your outermost exterior roofing materials, such as your shingles or tiles. It adds another layer of protection to your roof and helps to keep any water out that may seep beneath your roofing materials. Roof waterproofing can be made from different materials, including vinyl or rubber. The product helps to further decrease the risk of a leak forming on your roof and may help to extend the lifespan of your roof.

Custom roof coatings are coatings that are applied over your roofing materials, such as your shingles or tiles. The coatings have different properties which offer different benefits. Coatings can help to reflect U.V. rays, making your home naturally cooler in the hot summer months. Some roof coatings can strengthen your roofing materials, helping to protect against hail or acidic bird droppings. And other coatings help to increase the waterproofing properties of your roofing materials, ultimately increasing the ability of the roof to keep water and moisture out.
