Acrylic Coatings

Acrylic coatings were originally developed in the 1970’s to provide ultra-violet protection for sprayed urethane foam applications. These types of coatings are now used across a variety of roof membrane surfaces, including single-ply membranes and metal systems.

Acrylic based materials provide excellent resistance to UV radiation and have the inherent flexibility required to withstand dimensional instability of most roof membrane surfaces.

While acrylic coatings offer easy installation and a cost-effective solution for building owners looking to prolong the life of their existing roofing system, there are limitations that must be taken into account. Please see the list of pros and cons below.

Cure time of these products is highly weather dependent and cold weather or high humidity will impede curing. Ideal curing takes place with warm weather and low humidity.

CS Roofing Company can recommend if Acrylic is the right coating for the roof of your business.

Acrylic Roof Coatings: Pros and Cons

Acrylic is a water-based, cost-effective solution for a variety of roofs. They are good for most climates and provide the best value.

Pros: Acrylic coatings offer an excellent balance of cost and performance. They are highly reflective, UV resistant, and easy to work with.

Cons: Acrylics will lose mil thickness with weathering, need to be applied at 50°F or above, and typically do not perform well in ponding-water situations.

Silicone Coatings

Silicone coatings are manufactured with a high solids dispersion of up to 100% silicone. In the last decade, silicone coatings have gained market share in the commercial roofing market due to their excellent weather and ponding water resistance, as well as their long-term flexible properties.

Other coating systems typically cannot withstand prolonged periods of ponding water, which makes silicone a low-maintenance solution.

CS Roofing Company can help determine if silicone is the right roof coating for your business. If you have any questions, send us a message below or give us a call anytime!

Silicone Roof Coatings: Pros and Cons

Silicone coatings are moisture cured and humidity can even promote their cure. In some applications, the use of silicone coatings can eliminate the need for a primer.

Pros: Silicone coatings weather better than other coatings with almost no erosion and they don’t get hard or brittle. Silicone is also good in ponding water situations.

Cons: Silicones hold dirt and rain acts as a cleaner; therefore the material loses reflectivity over time. It is also hard to adhere to silicone, so when a roof needs re-coating, you must either remove the coating completely or re-coat with a compatible silicone.

Resistance to tearing is a mechanical weakness and silicone coatings should be used with fabric as a common practice.
