McHenry Roofing Explains the Benefits of Using a Fibered Aluminum Roof Coating in New Blog Post
McHenry Roofing, a company based in Baltimore, MD, has recently released a blog post that explains what is fibered aluminum roof coating and its advantages over conventional roof coatings. This is a kind of roof coating that is made up of aluminum flakes suspended in an asphalt emulsion and reinforced with fibers. This composition results into an extremely robust roof coating that can offer superior protection compared to the typical roof coatings.
Joseph Conley, owner of McHenry Roofing, says, “The composition of the fibered aluminum roof coating includes asphalt emulsions, aluminum flakes, and fiber reinforcements. Aluminum flakes serve as a reflective shield to reduce the amount of UV radiation that passes through the roofing material and into the attic, while fiber reinforcements help to increase the roof's durability. Fibered aluminum roof coatings also have superior water resistance when compared to traditional roof coatings. When applied properly, this roof coating can resist penetration from moisture and help protect against water damage from rain or snow. In addition, fibered aluminum roof coating has excellent adhesion characteristics that bond it firmly to most surfaces for increased durability and a longer lifespan.”
Fibered aluminum roof coatings offer several benefits over conventional roof coatings, including: enhanced water resistance, which helps protect against leaks; higher energy efficiency because of the reflective characteristics of the aluminum flakes, which decreases the amount of UV radiation going through the roofing material into the attic; improved longevity because of its stronger resistance to weathering; and superior adhesion, which bonds firmly to most surfaces for better durability.
There are several ways that fibered aluminum roof coatings are able to offer excellent protection and coverage for roofing materials that results into a longer lifespan for the roof. The reflective characteristics of the aluminum flakes can help in avoiding roof damage caused by UV rays from the sun. And its strong water resistance helps avoid roof damage due to the rain and snow. In addition, a fibered aluminum roof coating can cover gaps in the roofing material that is due to expansion, vibration, or contraction. This provides the advantage of less energy loss and leakage because of heat transfer in attics and other enclosed spaces protected by the roof. And the tight seal provided by this roof coating helps in preventing moisture from going through the roof material, thus minimizing the possibility of mold and mildew growth, can result into expensive roof repairs and replacements in the future.
Meanwhile, it is important for those who require roofing repair or a new roof, or roof maintenance to perform a careful research of roofing companies before making their final decision. Some of the primary factors to look for is a fully bonded, license and insured contractor like McHenry Roofing.
McHenry Roofing offers fibered aluminum roof coating services, which consist of several steps. First is the preparation and cleaning that will get rid of any dirt or debris, or other contaminants that could prevent proper adherence of the coating to the roof material. Furthermore, any cracked, worn, or damaged roofing materials will have to be fixed or replaced. The next step is the application of the fibered aluminum roof coating using a spray gun, roller, or brush. And it is important to have this applied by a professional roofing contractor who will also offer advice on the proper maintenance and provide any repair needs.
