Metacrylics coatings provide protection over aging or failing tar and gravel roofs. As tar and gravel roofs age, the gravel loosens and leaves the membrane vulnerable to UV rays and weathering. Tar and gravel roofs also absorb and hold heat, increasing roof and internal temperatures, causing increased energy and utility costs. Metacrylics coatings provide protection by reflecting heat and sunlight, leading to a more energy efficient building. Metacrylics coatings also withstand ponding conditions and resist debris, protecting the existing membrane from water infiltration. By coating the existing tar and gravel roof with Metacrylics, building owners and property managers are able to avoid costly tear-offs and re-roofs.
