When a business or home has a metal roof, they may want to add a white coating to the top to help ward off sun rays which tend to make air conditioning costs soar. White roof coating can be used to help cut down on the amount of air conditioning the building uses while giving the metal roof a protective coating that will last for years to come. Here are some instructions to use when adding a white roof coating to a metal roof.
First, the metal roof will need to be cleaned so the Roof Coating In Tucson will adhere without any obstructions in the way. Use a mild cleaner mixed in a bucket of water and scrub it over the metal rooftop using a non-abrasive mop. Use a pressure washer to remove all soap when the grime appears to have been removed. Letting the metal roof dry is best as the roof coating will not stick properly in moist conditions.
Use a roof and crack joint sealing agent to fill in any seams between metal panels. This will make the roof coating a completely waterproof surface. if the seams aren’t filled in, moisture can embed itself inside, possibly pooling up and making the coating prematurely deteriorate. Roof and crack joint sealant comes in a caulk tube and is added with help from a caulk gun. Use a putty knife to spread it over seams evenly.
Once the roof is prepped, the coating can be added. This is applied in the same manner as paint. It can be rolled, sprayed or painted on with a brush. In areas where pooling was noticed in the past, use a bit more of the coating to fill in the void. When the coating is dried in its entirety, a second coating can be applied.
