Ridgeline Roofers Columbia Explains Why Fibered Aluminum Roof Coating Is a Popular Solution for Extreme Weather Conditions

Published June 2, 2023

Ridgeline Roofers Columbia, a roofing company based in Columbia, MD, wants to emphasize why fibered aluminum roof coating is a popular solution for protecting the roof and home from extreme weather conditions. This kind of roof coating is manufactured using asphalt and aluminum flakes, providing a reflective surface that deflects the sun’s rays and heat. This roof coating also has fibers to provide a reinforced layer that adds durability and strength to the coating. It is often used for flat or low-sloped roofs, since it offers an extra layer of protection against UV rays, water, and weather.

A spokesperson for Ridgeline Roofers Columbia says, “There are several different types of fibered aluminum roof coating available, including solvent-based coatings, water-based coatings, and emulsion coatings. Solvent-based coatings are typically more durable and resistant to weathering, but they can also be more harmful to the environment. Water-based coatings are easier to clean up and have a lower VOC (volatile organic compounds) content, but they may not be as durable as solvent-based coatings. Emulsion coatings are a blend of water-based and solvent-based coatings, offering the benefits of both types.”

There are several properties and advantages of fibered aluminum roof coating. First is reflectivity because the aluminum in the coating reflects sunlight and decreases heat absorption, which keeps the building cooler and decreases energy costs. Second, the roof coating offers extra protection against water and moisture, which can help prevent leaks and water damage. The third benefit is UV protection, which prevents premature aging and deterioration. Fourth is rust prevention, which is provided by the aluminum in the coating, thus extending the lifespan of the roof. Lastly, fibered aluminum roof coating can offer energy savings because of its ability to decrease heat absorption and to reflect sunlight.

The spokesperson adds, “Overall, fibered aluminum roof coating is a durable and cost-effective roofing solution that provides many benefits to homeowners. Whether you choose a solvent-based or water-based coating, this type of roofing material can help to protect your home from water damage, UV rays, and other environmental factors, while also helping to reduce energy costs and prolong the lifespan of your roof.”

The procedure for applying fibered aluminum roof coating requires the cleaning and preparation of the roof surface. This usually involves power washing or scrubbing the roof with a detergent solution to get rid of debris, dirt, mildew, and other contaminants that can affect the adhesion of the coating. Next, any cracks or holes in the surface have to be filled with patching or caulking compounds. Any damaged shingles will also need to be replaced with new ones before applying the fibered aluminum roof coating.

After the cleaning and roof preparation, the fibered aluminum roof coating may be sprayed or applied using an airless sprayer or applied by using a brush or nap roller. Two layers of the coatings may typically be required. Next, the seams between different sections will have to be sealed using the proper materials, like sealant tape or caulk.
