Metal roofing is without a doubt one of the toughest and most durable solutions for protecting your building. There are many options out there, but when it comes to your business, workshop or industrial facility, you want something that’s going to serve with distinction for some time. And metal roofing is an investment that will deliver returns for years to come. Having a roof on your building is one thing. But once you’ve accomplished that, you need to make sure it’s properly cared for. Preserving or restoring your metal roofing with an acrylic, multipurpose elastomeric coating will help keep it performing well and ensure that it stands up to the toughest forces Mother Nature throws at it.
Exposed to the elements
Metal roofing takes the brunt of all the wind, rain, snow or hail that will assault your building over its service life. Hail can strip away paint, leaving it susceptible to rust. High winds can slam debris against its surface. Heavy snow can put immense pressure on it and expose the coating to prolonged moisture contact. Even rain can lead to problems if standing water is allowed to collect on an improperly designed metal roof. But the right metal roof coating can help to combat all of these naturally degrading forces.
Coating for success
There are many different metal roof coatings out there. One in particular, Acryshield A400, features bleed blocking technology, and exceeds a number of ASM D6083 requirements which include:
- Tensile Strength
- Wet Adhesion
In addition to meeting these requirements, Acryshield A400 features a number of other benefits including seamless waterproofing, energy saving capabilities and reduced life-cycle costs.
Together, these features mean you can expect your metal roofing to live long, perform well and, most importantly, protect your assets for the length of its service life.
Metal roofing is far more durable than many of the other options on the market. And, when properly cared for, it’s almost guaranteed to stand the test of time. Metal roofing like the classic rib steel variant can withstand cold temperatures and, with the correct coating, withstand distortion and discoloration over time. The combination of metal roofing and the proper, proven coating will deliver performance and protection for as long as they’re properly maintained.
