Liquid-Applied Coating Solutions

Liquid-Applied Roofing Solutions Benefits
Liquid Applied Roofing Solutions can help extend the life of structurally sounds roofs through their ability to eliminate many failure points associated with many aging low slope roofs. Liquid applied roofing can also help add solar reflectivity properties to dark colored roofs greatly reducing energy costs.  
What is a Liquid Membrane Roofing System?

A liquid-applied roofing system consists of multiple components that come together to form a fully adhered, seamless, and self-flashing membrane. Components include liquid applied coatings and mesh membranes to create a true liquid membrane system that preserves and protects the integrity of the building. 

What is a Roof Coating System?

Roof Coatings are designed for extending the life of existing structurally sound roofs. GAF Roof Coatings are specially formulated to extend the life of roofs while protecting them from damaging effects of weather and the environment such as UV light, water and wind. GAF offers roof coatings in a variety of different technologies such as acrylic, silicone and polyurethanes to meet many different building needs and budgets.

Types of Liquid-Applied Coatings.

GAF offers multiple liquid-applied roofing system solutions, each designed for specific applications and conditions. These solutions each feature a liquid-applied component that creates a seamless, chemically resistant barrier to external elements. They can be installed over most existing roof types, eliminating the need for tear-offs or installation of re cover boards. No hot kettles, no expensive installation equipment, and no special seaming devices are required. 

Coatings for Challenging Conditions
Water intrusion, such as through leaks or condensation, is the number-one challenge for most exterior construction surfaces. This results in deteriorating substrate conditions, interior and property damage, devaluation of the structure, and interruption of occupancy
Cracks, damage, and points of failure in existing roof systems often cause headaches for building owners. The issues may be merely cosmetic, or they could be symptoms of much more serious structural issues beneath the surface.
When structures are utilized to house people or inventory, it can be very costly to perform large repairs or interrupt occupancy due to access requirements, toxic fumes, or temporary exposure to elements.
Many regions face ocean salt spray, intense sun, unstable ground, or blowing wind and rain. In addition, many industrial processes release corrosive gases and residues that attack traditional roofing materials.
When determining the best solution for an exterior surface, local building codes, energy costs, and effect of absorbed heat must be considered.

Years of ultraviolet exposure, polluted air, and dirt and debris can wreak havoc on surfaces, making them appear faded and inconsistent.

Some applications require complex patterns, designs, and wide color palettes to meet the application or designer requirements.
