The Importance of Metal Roof Coating
There are many different types of metal roof coating products used to coat metal roof panels such as anti-rust, waterproofing, and heat reflective roof coating systems. In addition, they can be made of various materials, for instance: ceramic coating and nanotechnology coating materials. Metal Roofing Systems installs roofing systems, metal panels and metal shingle systems that are heat reflective in Milwaukee, Madison, Stoughton, Waunakee, Racine, and throughout Southern Wisconsin.

Ceramic coatings are the most popular heat reflective metal roof coatings applied on metal sheet roofs worldwide. Most ceramic coatings are made from regular paint, to which ceramic beads are mixed as an additive. Although they reflect on average 75% to 85% of solar radiation, their application is mostly limited to industrial and commercial buildings.
Nanotechnology solar reflective coatings are efficient, heat-reflective coatings that can be applied as aluminum roofing coatings today. They consist of radiant barriers whose performance increases exponentially with the surface’s heat, which makes them perfect for application on metal sheet roofs, particularly during manufacturing. The average heat load is reduced by 30% typically, which instantly makes the home or building more energy-efficient and caps heat build-up.
Roof coatings on metal roofs in industrial areas with lots of dust will remain clean longer and will be less sensitive to acids from manufacturing plants. In coastal areas, these metal roof coatings protect metal sheet roofs from marine salt. On residential roofs, metal roof coating products protect residential and flat commercial metal roofs from damage caused by the weather elements of heat, cold, rain, snow, wind and ice.
