Roof coating manufacturers assert the many merits of their products, including protection from ultraviolet rays, reduced thermal cycling, improved waterproofing performance, and, with reflective coatings – reduced energy costs. The presenters will offer a summary of the major coating types available, including acrylics, polyurethanes, and specialty products such as soy-based coatings. The speakers will explain the importance of matching coatings to roofs based on coating characteristics, performance, and maintenance expectations.
