Roof Coating Can Protect Your Business's Inventory

Posted on: 17 January 2019

Whether it's a clothing boutique, shipping warehouse, or any other business, protecting the business's inventory is important. After all, inventory is the way by which any sales-based company will earn their profits. Have you ever thought about the role the condition of your roof plays when it comes to accomplishing this goal? More specially, the roof coating. If not, learn what roof coating is and how it can help protect your business's inventory.

Roof Coating

Roof coating is a protective, life-extending roof application. As part of the process, a silicone, acrylic, urethane, or other highly reflective material is brushed or sprayed over the entire surface of the roof. 

Once set, the reflective material creates a barrier, or coating, over the roof that helps control and prevent leaks, minimize thermal shock, and reduce the level of UV ray penetration through the roof's surface. The application is ideal for new roofs or older roofs and can be applied over just about any roofing material. 


Here are just some of the ways roof coating can protect your inventory. 


Leaking roofs cause all type of chaos, but a roof leak in the inventory closet or room could mean complete destruction. In fact, if you lose all your inventory, you'd be forced to close your doors, at least temporarily. Roof coating works as somewhat of a sealant that can help keep water out and keep your inventory dry.

Heat Transfer

Businesses use any open area for inventory storage, including attics. However, an attic with elevated temperatures can spell damage, particularly when it comes to electronics, cosmetic products, and even certain wood or plastic items. A roof coating makes the roof surface reflective. As a result, much of the sun's rays bounce off the roof, instead of penetrating its surface and elevating the indoor air temperature. 

Inventory Disturbance

Some roof repairs require work on the underside of the roof. Consequently, if you have product stored in the area just below the roof, there's always the risk of dropped tools or some other mishap that could cause damage to your products. However, roof coating is completed entirely on the outer surface of the roof, so you don't have to worry about any disturbances to the inside of the building and your inventory.

The benefits of roof coating extend far beyond inventory protection. Speak with a commercial roof coating specialist to determine if this process is beneficial for your building and to learn about all the added benefits you can expect from the process.
