Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why use Industrial Roof Coatings Roof Protect Roof Membrane to protect your roof?
One of the most important characteristics of a roof coating is its ability to expand and contract without breaking down or de-laminating. Sub-strates move when heated and cooled a process which occurs every day. If a coating does not match the movement it will either split or crack or separate from the sub-strate. In both cases this failure will result in moisture entering the sub-strate below the coating and the ultimate failure of the coating. The two critical factors in a coatings ability to accommodate this movement are elongation (stretching) and strength. A membrane clearly out-performs paint as it has greater thickness per coat and more elasticity.
2. Do you use salesman to give quotes?
No salesmen are not used, we are a small family business and we do the work ourselves. So we are the salesman and the roofers.

6. Must I be at home when you come to inspect my roof?
While it is not necessary that you’re at home, it is advised so that we can properly explain the process to you.
7. Does my roof need coating or can you just do repair work?
This is worked out on a case by case basis. Most roofs will need to be coated as over time tiles get small breaks which allow water to get in and penetrate the tile. This in turn causes bigger breaks to appear and tile disintegration.
