Roof coatings are becoming a popular choice in many homes across Scotland, providing an affordable alternative to replacing your roof, yet offering excellent protection during those cold and rainy winters. Products such as a rubber roof coating in Scotland can make a big difference to your property, but some homeowners can be concerned that they’ll be difficult to install or that installation will be disruptive, so want to know exactly what the process will involve. Here’s a quick guide to how roof coatings are added to homes, so you can decide whether it’s the right product for you.
Cleaning your roof
Roof coatings aren’t just a way to make your roof weatherproof, it’s also left looking like new, so the first step would be to clean your roof thoroughly. A pressure washer is used to get the dirt and grime away, so that when we add a roof repair coating in Scotland, it’ll go on smoothly and look great. There’s usually a surprising amount of dirt and grime, but don’t worry, this will be bagged up and removed.
Restoring your roof
Once your roof is clean, the installers can look for:
Loose and cracked mortar
Cracks and other damage
These can then be repaired, ensuring that any broken areas are dealt with, so your roof is in better condition than ever. Before applying a waterproof roof coating in Scotland, it’s essential to look for any spots where potential leaks and draughts could be coming in, ensuring you get the best level of protection. A fungicidal treatment is also added, stopping mould spores from growing, and helping to prevent algae damage.
Applying the coating
Once your roof is thoroughly cleaned and prepared, your roof coating of choice is applied using spray equipment to get into all the nooks and crannies. This ensures that these roof coating systems in Scotland have a neat, even look, covering every inch of the roof. The time it takes to apply and dry will depend on the product you choose, but this will all be discussed in advance, so you know what to expect.
Preparation and clean-up
It’s essential that when people come to carry out work in your home that they are considerate and clean up after themselves. Preparation is key, with downpipes needing to be blocked, and things like plants covered, so they aren’t affected by the chemicals used. Once the work is done, your property is put back to normal, with all rubbish removed and things returned to normal. That way, you can get a whole new roof, without worrying about the clean up or maintenance, and once the job is done you can simply sit back and enjoy it. Once your roof coating is applied, you’ll notice a big improvement in the look of your home’s exterior, as well as its energy efficiency and comfort.
