Roof Resurfacing Options for Various Commercial Roofs

By Stacy Mellete

Choosing the proper coating for your commercial roof can be complicated, so you should work with a qualified professional for this project and research the topic thoroughly. Today, Affordable Roofing Systems, a residential and commercial roofing expert, explains what you should know about various roof resurfacing options:

Metal Systems

These roofing systems are manufactured out of polymer-coated steel, zinc-aluminum coated steel or aluminum. Metal roofs can resist UV rays, but they can be vulnerable to corrosion. Compatible field coatings can recoat the durable factory coatings (acrylic, polyester or PVDF) of a metal roof.

Single-Ply Membrane Systems

These roofs consist of thermoset or thermoplastic polymer sheets that may or may not have internal reinforcement. Selecting the proper coating for this type of roof can be complex, so Affordable Roofing Systems recommends consulting a qualified commercial roofing expert. Examples of coatings include solvent-borne polymerics, acrylics, silicones, urethanes and more.

Bituminous Systems

These systems consist of coal tar pitch or asphalt as the waterproofing and adhesive. They also contain reinforcements of asbestos fibers and organic glass fiber. 

Surfacing options include a new flood coat of hot asphalt or pitch, membrane and flashing replacement with modified bituminous materials, and an asphalt emulsion applied with sprayed, chopped glass fibers, with a reflective roof coating.

Polymer-Modified Bituminous Systems

These roofing systems consist of glass fiber or polyester mats or scrims that are modified with polymers of styrene-butadiene-styrene or atactic polypropylene. Polymer-modified bituminous roofs are usually surfaced using factory-applied roofing granules. Your surface options include aluminum-based coatings, white reflective silicones, acrylics and more.
