How can white roof coating help me? An energy efficient Heat Reflective Paint, Summer Seal reflect up to 85% of Solar Heat, keeping the roof surface much cooler than with aluminum, black, or non-reflective roofing materials. Lower temperatures mean less energy usage, and translates to money saved. Our Heat Reflective Paint Summer Seal roof coatings protect the roof substrate adding years to your roof, plus saves against costly tear-offs and re-roofing.
Does my roof qualify for a roof coating? Most low-slope roofs in good shape qualify for an Summer Seal roof coating. To be sure, contact a local licensed contractor to evaluate your roof. Please call us if you have any questions about your roof.
How do I apply roof coating? There are several steps to coating a roof. Clean the roof very well with a power washer, garden hose, and push broom. Let dry for 24 hours. Do any patch and repair needed and let stand for another 24 hours. Roll on first coat at a rate of 30 sq/ft per 1-Liter. We recommend two coats. Always wait 2-4 hours in between coats. For more detailed information please contact our technical representative.
How much area does a one liter of roof coating cover? One 1-Liter coats 30 square feet. To calculate how much you need, find sq/ft of surface to cover: Length X Width = area. For example, to cover 900 sq. ft., divide by 30 sq/ft to equal 2 coat application: 900/30 = 30 liter. For two coats.
How long do I need to wait in between coats? Waiting time between coatings should be 4-8 hours.
How do I clean up after coating? Summer Seal coatings are water clean-up.
My metal roof is rusty; is it too late? If your metal roof still has life left in it, you can add more years with proper coating. If rust has eaten all the way through the metal, those panels must be replaced. For surface rust, clean area with wire brush, remove any dirt or dust, and apply a commercial rust-inhibiting primer over the affected areas. Apply 2 coats of roof coating to a previously uncoated metal roof. For more details please call.
What is reflectivity? Solar reflectivity indicates how much heat and light (visible sun rays, UV rays, and infrared rays) are bounced back into the atmosphere. Summer Seal Blocks 90% of solar infrared rays and 85% of ultraviolet rays.
