Industrial and commercial roofs should be built to last. Therefore, they will demand the most durable roof coatings available. For many of our commercial roofing clients, we recommend polyurea roof coatings. You may be more familiar with this type of protective coating under the name Rhino roof coating or SPI roof coating.
What Are Polyurea Roof Coatings Made Of?
Polyurea is an elastomer made from two reactive components:
Rhino Roof Coating Benefits
Rhino coatings are often associated with truck beds, as they are a popular choice for truck linings. However, the same durability, flexibility, and ease of application can be used on your roof as well. Rhino and other polyurea roof coatings are sprayed on to the roof surface, where they harden to create a tight seal on the building structure. After polyurea roof coatings are applied and cured, they provide a wide range of immediate benefits.
Rain, wind, and sun are no match for polyurea roof coatings. Once hardened, your Rhino roof coating will be durable against even the harshest climate conditions. In fact, your roof coating will be virtually indestructible throughout the life of your roof. That means that leaks and other types of storm damage are a thing of the past.
Protection from Projectile Damage
Tree branches, hail, and other projectiles can easily damage commercial roofs—especially those featuring a flat roof design. However, with the exceptional durability of Rhino coatings, you can rest easy knowing that your roof will not take a hit from projectile impacts.
Because polyurea provides a solid coating over your roof, it will offer sound dampening benefits for your building. If your commercial property is open to the public, this can be a valuable feature for the space.
Reduced Energy Costs
When considering any building upgrades, it’s always important to think about your bottom line. However, your roof coating can prove to be a valuable long-term investment thanks to the energy savings it offers. With resistance from sun and water damage along with improved insulation, your polyurea roof coating will help to cut on heating and cooling costs inside the building. In large commercial buildings and warehouses, this type of energy savings can be substantial.
Great warranties are the sign of great products. With Rhino roof coatings, you can expect a 20-year warranty to help protect your roof for years to come.
Polyurea Roof Coating Application
If you are ready to invest in Rhino polyurea roof coating, then you will want to call a roofing company that specializes in this commercial roofing service. While it may seem simple enough to spray on the coating and allow it to cure, this process does require roofing expertise to get right. Otherwise, you might end up with a patchy, uneven coating that does not adequately seal out moisture and other elements. Once applied, polyurea roof coatings will immediately start protecting your roof with a watertight seal.
