We like to say it is a lot like a truck bed liner for your roof.
It has elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage.
An elastomeric coating provides great protection and restoration for either metal or existing membranes like modified bitumen.
When properly applied, elastomeric coatings provide:
- Protection from rust and deterioration
- Watertight protection
- Reduced energy costs because it is white and reflects the sun’s energy.
One of the problems that can be encountered with elastomeric coating is preparation and coverage. If the seams are not properly tightened and covered with tape or a seam sealing material.
