An elastomeric coating is a coating that’s capable of being stretched at least twice its original length (100% elongation) and recovering to its original dimensions.
Elastomerics are used in commercial roofing as a liquid that gets applied on top of an existing roofing system to form a membrane. They also make the roof:
- a monolithic layer
- cooler by adding an element of reflectivity from the sun
- have an extended life
- have a 10-20-year warranty
Usually, an elastomeric roof coating comes in white to add reflectivity, but in some territories, such as colder climates, a grey color can be used to absorb heat during the winter months.
What are the costs of elastomeric roof coatings?
The cost of an acrylic roof coating is around $14-$21 per gallon.
The cost of a silicone roof coating is around $27-$35 per gallon.
The cost of a urethane roof coating is around $40-$65 per gallon.
