Elastomeric Coatings For Phoenix Roofs
Can contractors cheat on installation of your coating? YES - Find out how to stop them!
When you are choosing a Spray Polyurethane Foam roof system, one of the most important aspects to ask your contractor is: what type of coating are they installing to protect you new foam roof investment? The coatings are called Elastomeric Acrylic Resin Liquid Membranes. A lot of times a roofing contractor will "offer" a ten-year warranty, "but there痴 a catch... only if you re-coat within five years". That's because of the lower quality product they are using.
Ask them about the Dry Mill Thickness, this is the amount of coating that is left on your roof after it dry's. There are so many coatings available today and there are a lot of poor quality ones that you REALLY need to watch out for. Coatings can be filled with "low quality fillers", even though the contractor may say they are installing 2, 3 or even 4 gallons of product per 100 square feet... How much is going to remain on the roof after it dry's? There are some products that offer a 10-year manufacturer backed warranty not only on your roofing materials but also on the labor. Which simply means, the manufacture will stand behind the roof (including fixing leaks!) for up to 10 years, even though the contractor may not be in business to do Phoenix roofing repairs... Now That痴 A Warranty To Think About!!!
Don稚 forget to ask if they physically gauge their coatings behind their installers, or what guarantee do they provide proving the amount of coating used. If they don't gauge their coatings during installation, will they provide you with slit samples after the project is completed?
