There are numerous formulation types within the roof coating arena. Most roof coatings are one of the following types:
- Elastomeric acrylic
- Thermoplastic rubber
- Asphalts, including aluminized asphalt
In most cases, we favor the use of thermoplastic rubber coatings but existing conditions on the roof and the goals/expectations of the owner will ultimately drive our product recommendations. There is no one, best coating for all roofs and situations. Fortunately, Truco has experience manufacturing all of the major product categories. When deciding on the coating that best meets your needs, we would typically recommend that decision makers focus on the physical properties of the coating material, along with the cost and sustainability of the installed system.
As a manufacturer, Truco is able to remain cost effective on a price per gallon basis with all other quality roofing materials. We do recommend a disciplined approach that is based on long term performance. Therefore, the coverage rates and specifications that we suggest may result in costs that are higher than vendors taking a shorter term mentality to the work. We recommend that prospects review older installations when judging the true cost associated with our materials as our aim is to design durable, long term solutions to your roof problems.
