Event Details

In this virtual Food for Thought, David Johnson of PermaLast Coating Systems will discuss Roof Coatings

1) Roof coatings make re-roofing outdated tech. 

  • With today’s silicone roof coatings, you get a roof that is...

✓ better ✓ stronger ✓ less expensive ✓ lasts indefinitely

  • What are roof coatings?
  • For flat roofs only.

2) Silicone coatings lasts indefinitely: 

  • Coatings are guaranteed to last the life of the building if maintained.  How?
  • They will not get dry or brittle.
  • UV rays do not hurt them.
  • Ponding water does not damage them.
  • 400% elongation
  • Renewable warranties
  • Maintenance

3) A fraction of the cost of a new roof:

  • Initial cost is only about $3.00 per SF. 
  • 100% tax deductible in the first year (equal to 21% discount of total cost)
  • State energy incentives 15¢ per sf rebate and more.
  • Energy savings (35% cooler).

4) Stronger & better walkways:  TPO vs. Roof Coatings

  • Roof coatings strength
  • Walkways: Walking pads vs. imbedded granules.

✓ More fire resistant. ✓ Slip resistant. ✓ More resistent to wear.

  • COST: Traditional walkways

✓ $10.00 per SF vs. .80¢ for Embedded granules. ✓ At 80¢ per SF, you can afford to make the whole roof as strong as a walkway.
