Spraying roof coatings


#1

Has any users ever had to silvercoat metal roofs before , using airless sprayers? this one is a 3 story jack roof, would need a pic, and also thinking about spraying the silvercoat to do most of the coating… How much should work like this be ? Im not sue how to bid it , but if it was by the sq, how much a sq ? looks like about 20-25 sq…

Sure we have done it. but lets make no mistake, its just window dressing, the proof is in the roofing.
Painters are not Roofers.

Aluminum fiber and fibrated coatings
have been around for over the 23 years Ive been roofing

Most commonly used for pro-longing the life cycle of a Modified Bitumen roof and highley suggested by myself to keep your modified roof from burning up with in 10 years in the southern states. Even suggest this up north. Since Im both a northern and southern roofer. Every 5 years would be optimum and Ive pushed modified roofs personally to 20+ years using this very coating.

Painting galvanized metal roofs was another use for it and also suggested by myself to protect the metal from rusting further

You find these galvanized panels on alot of industrial warehouses or barn roofs. When kynar finshed panels cost 5x greater and or not needed

Just recently we (coated / painted ) this 100+ sq building and resealed penetrations…blah blah blah…

Averaged 75.00 per sq (pressure wash and coat)

Fiber Coat locally is 55.00 per 5 gallon bucket
Averages about 5 sq on metal vs only 3 sq coverage expected on modified

Its far from being new to the industry and really is a good savior for prolonging the roof life of an existing flat roof system or glavanized metal roof panels

DONT USE A SPRAYER. YOU WOULD NEED TO DELUTE THE COATING WITH GASOLINE OR THINNER AS IVE SEEN DONE AND THAT WOULD LEAVE A COATING THAT IS NOT AS DURABLE AS A HAND ROLLED COATING. THUS THIS SPRAY METHOD USUALLY ONLY LASTS ABOUT 1 YEAR ? BEFORE WASHING AWAY.
