We often get the question ‘How long do roof coatings last?” The life expectancy for a roof coating can vary depending on a number of factors. Roof coatings usually last 5 to 10 years, depending on various factors such as the type of coating, climate conditions, and the quality of the application. A roof coating that contains a high solids content can last even longer. The solids content of any roof coating refers to the amount of high-quality products in coating itself. These are ingredients in the coating such as Titanium Dioxide or the actual resins used to create the product. Most coating products from the big box stores contain an average or low amount of solid content. Sunland Coatings has a high amount of solids content in all of our products. We have been manufacturing roof coatings in Arizona since 1986. Our formulas have been pretty much the same for almost 40 years. We are very familiar with the Arizona sun and know what it takes to withstand the sun in our area. We understand that a good roof coating is not cheap, and we manufacture a product that gives the best value to our customers. Also, being a small manufacture, we are able to provide a higher quality product at a competitive price because there is no middleman. Sunland Coatings provides a freshly made, high quality product directly to our customers without having to go through a resale outlet.
Regular inspections and maintenance can extend the lifespan of a roof coating. Factors like exposure to harsh weather, UV degradation, and foot traffic can affect how long a roof coating can remain effective. It’s important to consult with a professional from time to time to determine what issues your roof may have and what is the best application of roof coating for your situation. The best type of maintenance is a to have the roof pressure washed occasionally so that it can be inspected thoroughly and maintained properly.
