"Do judge a roof by it's cover"
July 6, 2015
Jewett Roofing is constantly on the lookout for superior low slope roof repair methods. One of the biggest trends in recent years has been the rise of high quality elastomeric roof coating systems. Coatings are an ideal solution to fortify existing roof systems against costly and annoying leaks. Jewett has been able to successfully utilize coatings to both restore entire roofs as well as address localized leak issues on roofs that are otherwise performing well.
Jewett offers coatings to address all types of existing roof conditions. We have partnered with ERSystems to provide some of the highest quality elastomeric coatings in the industry.
Coatings do not work well for every roof. We do not recommend full roof coatings when there is wet insulation under the roof or when there is ponding water on the roof top. Coatings are an excellent option over metal roofs. The elastic nature of our roof coatings mitigate the expansion and contraction the wreak havok on those roof tops. Additionally, elastomeric coatings can extend the life of most single ply roof systems. These include PVC, TPO, and EPDM Roofs.
Provided your roof is a candidate for a coating application, the cost associated with a applying a roof coating can be significantly less expensive than with a re-roof project. In our experience the costs are between 50% to 70% of an equivalent single ply installation project.
