Elastomeric coatings are an increasingly popular option for roof restoration of both steep and low slope roofing products. Its popularity has increased among owners that are budget conscience and want to extend the life of their existing roof and defer a costly replacement. Coatings protect asphalt based materials from harmful UV light which break down hydrocarbons found in many low slope products.
