Tips To Eliminate Ponding on Your Flat Commercial Roof

What is Ponding Water?

The roofing industry defines ponding water to be water that accumulates on the roof and stays pooled in an area more than 48 hours after heavy rain has ended. Ponding water on a flat roof can drastically reduce the roof’s lifespan and often leads to damaging leaks and sagging roofs. Flat roofs also might develop blocked drains due to debris and other materials which cause water to pool in some areas.

How Does Ponding Water Affect Your Flat Roof?

There are several reasons that cause water to pond on a flat roof surface.  Most commonly, loose debris can obstruct your flat roof drainage. Ponding water can permeate any defect in your roof structure, including splits or cracks. If the water seeps into your insulation the inner fibers can rot affecting the quality of your insulation and damaging the roof.

Ponding water on a flat roof can also be caused by a sagging roof structure, deflection or inferior roof design. Flat roof drainage that is incorrectly sized or improperly placed leads to ponding water issues. These issues continue to worsen and damage a flat commercial roof as the roof ages. 

Ponding water can reduce the roof’s endurance, lead to faster deterioration of rooftop coatings, encourage the growth of harmful vegetation such as moss, algae, and mold and lead to leaking and sagging of the roof system.  It can contribute to the premature decline of the roof membrane, coatings and flashing, and compromise the integrity of the roofing structure.

There are ponding water can damage a commercial roof in many different ways:

Dirt and debris will accumulate on the roof. The soiled water starts to rot, causing algae and bacteria to grow. This can impact the integrity of your roofing materials and its coating.

Ponding water is extremely harmful to your rooftop surface. While the water accumulates on your roof, it is in constant contact with your roof coating. As the sun heats the water during the day, it gradually decreases the durability of your rooftop coating.

Ponding water also corrodes your roof’s membrane structure. Over time, ponding water will begin to seep through cracks that occur in your roof’s membrane. As the sun continually heats the water, the roof’s membrane may become damaged, leading to leaks in the roof’s surface.

How to Fix the Problem

In order to correct a ponding water problem on your flat commercial roof, there are several options to consider. Your best option depends on your specific situation.

 

One option to keep water from ponding on your flat rooftop is to install a tapered roof. This directs the water to the building’s internal drainage system. Tapered roofs are installed at a slight angle which directs the water toward the building’s internal drains or gutters.

Another solution is to optimize the drainage system. If your current drainage is not sufficient, you can fix this by adding additional roof drains. This requires an entire process of opening the existing roof down to the deck. A pipe is then affixed to the existing drain assembly which connects to the roof’s existing drainage system.

If the above options are not financially feasible at this time, you might consider replacing your roof membrane. Several PVC membranes are specifically designed to resist ponding water. Ponding water issues can be avoided when drains and gutters are cleared of debris allowing water to flow through, preventing damage to the structure. 

Collected water can cause major damage if you don’t attend to it. In fact, warranties often compel building owners to maintain proper drainage by not permitting water to stand on the roof over 48 hours in dry conditions. Many older roofs were not designed to hold standing pools of water, and can easily become damaged due to the excessive weight. Over time, the standing water leads to deteriorating surfaces, damaged roofing materials and ultimately causing roof erosion.

Preventing the damage caused by ponding water can be a relatively easy problem to fix. After an initial visual inspection to verify the extent of the problem, regularly scheduled roof inspections and maintenance by a reputable local roofing company should be arranged.

How Sustainable Is Your Commercial Roof?

For many years, company managers have been aware of the significance of energy-efficient rooftops in reducing the overall cost of maintaining or replacing commercial roofing systems. These include reflective, white or light-colored coatings that can preserve the roof’s longevity and minimize damage from heat, UV light, and harsh conditions. However, recently facility supervisors have begun to recognize that rooftops can add significant value to their company’s bottom line through sustainability cost savings. Today, there are new government and industry standards for implementing cool roofs, green buildings, and LEED ratings for commercial facilities. Companies such as Rockin G Roofing exceed these standards.

1-      Definition of LEED and Energy Star standards

Energy Star standards are set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They measure the amount of heat and energy the rooftop emits.  LEED standards (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rates the solar reflective qualities of the rooftop and codifies them in an index.  CRRC (Cool Roof Rating Council) sets standards for cool roofs by measuring the amount of solar energy that is reflected by the roofs’ coating.  All varieties of roof coatings can help make your company’s roof more environmentally sustainable. Extending rooftop performance by coating the roof, especially with light or white surfaces, keeps the roof system cooler and helps slow the roof’s aging process. Roof coatings act as a renewable protective barrier, maintaining the existing structure.

2-      The value of an investment in cool roofing

 

There are several reasons that a cool roof can be a desirable investment. It can reduce energy bills by decreasing air conditioning use, improve indoor comfort levels for areas with low ventilation, and reduce roof temperature performance which may extend the life of the existing roof. Evaluating whether to make your commercial building into a green building by installing sustainable roofing can be determined based on the roof’s lifecycle. This means taking into account the upfront costs as well as the ongoing savings and expenses related to the roof’s operational lifetime.  Expected maintenance costs such as regular roof inspections, re-coatings, and repairs as well as disposal and replacement expenses should be evaluated prior to embarking on a sustainable roof project. Various government and local initiatives encourage cool roofs, by offering long term savings which balance the projected cost with increased energy savings. The overall savings you can realize from a cool roof are based on various factors, including; the amount of insulation in your roof; area climate; utility costs; building usage; and the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Cool roofs may degrade slower and last longer than other roofing options.

 

3-      Sustainability and environmental  benefits of Cool Roof coatings

 Today, most projects are at least somewhat conscious of their environmental footprint. With growing awareness of climate change, roof coatings have become an integral part of this sustainable materials solution. Sustainability is defined by Webster as “being a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged, or . . . relating to a lifestyle involving the use of sustainable methods.” This relates to commercial roofing by using easily obtainable longer-lasting materials, containing recycled content or are biodegradable once removed.  

Cool roofs benefit the environment, and recently policymakers have developed guidelines for communities to follow. Cool roofs can reduce peak utility demand, which may help avoid power outages; reduce power plant emissions, including carbon dioxide, nitrous oxides, sulfur- dioxide and mercury levels by decreasing energy use in buildings; and reduce heat trapped in the surrounding area by reflecting more sunlight back into the atmosphere. Cool roof reflective coatings reduce energy consumption in accordance with LEED and Energy Star standards leading to greater environmental sustainability.

3 Myths About Commercial Roofing Coatings – Debunked

Commercial Roofing protection will ensure that your company’s roof lasts a long time without unnecessary replacement or costly upgrades. These roof coatings can serve as protection from the sun’s corroding rays. They also prevent expansion and contraction that could result in premature breakdown of the underlying roof membrane.

There are various options of coatings sourced in Miami, Oklahoma, including Acrylic Roof coatings, TPO Membranes and Silicone Roof Coatings. Here are examples of the most common myths regarding Roof Coatings:

1.       Roof Coatings Deteriorate Quickly Due To Excessive Heat and Sun Exposure

Liquid applied Acrylic Roof Coatings, TPO Membranes and Silicone Roof Coatings are extremely effective and are 85%-90% UV reflective. They work particularly well on metal roofing systems.   For commercial flat, low sloped roofs the UV sustainability of these roof coatings are highly effective. 

Recently, rooftops have become a large factor in heat issues. Almost “90% of roofs in the United States” are not designed correctly. They are made with “dark, non-reflective, heat-absorbing materials.” This causes rooftop temperatures to rise drastically – up to 90°F. This is commonly found in highly populated areas, which are now called “heat islands” because of the temperature change.

Research shows that “average city air temperatures can be up to 5.4°F warmer than their surroundings during the day, and up to an alarming 22°F warmer during the evenings.” Because of this, cool roofing is one recommended solution to prevent overheating. 

Cool roofing is an emergent and powerful technology used for temperature control of commercial buildings. A cool roof prevents heat absorption by reflecting the sun’s heat and then emitting its radiation back into the atmosphere. Thus, cool roofs allow for a more comfortable indoor atmosphere.

 

2.       Replacing a Commercial Roof Disrupts Business Operation

Depending on weather conditions, commercial roof coatings usually take between 8-24 hours to thoroughly dry. The entire project can take several days to complete. Therefore, to reduce business disruption, it is generally recommended for businesses to begin with a solid plan of action. 

Creating a plan for your replacement can help reduce the risk of the project taking too much time and running over budget. Create a timetable that specifies a start and end date as well as an affordable budget. 

Just as residential roofing projects require a cleanup prior to construction, so do commercial jobs. It’s important to safeguard any obstacles or clutter that could impede the progress or safety of the roofing job. A firm schedule is necessary to stay on time. This means that keeping the work area clear will help to keep the roof construction project on schedule.

 

3.       Commercial Roof Coatings Do Not Help The Environment

The US roofing industry is recognizing the growing popularity of new technologies linked to environmental sustainability. Various new roof coatings have been trending among government policymakers, environmentalists, and roof coatings manufacturers. 

Reflective roof coatings are among the most cost effective ways of reducing building energy consumption according to sustainability experts. Studies show that the reflective external coatings have a generally negative impact on overall energy consumption.  These reflective coatings can have a major effect on the energy performance of commercial buildings in different climate zones and seasons.

This Animal Can Seriously Damage Your Commercial Roof

It’s not rats or cockroaches. This animal can easily thrive in a variety of environments,  henceforth their large population. What can it be? One word: birds. These seemingly harmless feathery friends can cause severe damage to your commercial building’s roof. Replacing your roof may not bring you to financial ruin, nevertheless, it still can hurt your profit margins. If your roof has already fallen victim to birds, contact Rockin’ G Roofing Systems for commercial roof repair in Miami, OK. http://rockingroofing.com/contact-us/

Here’s how birds can become a major thorn in your side, and what you can do to prevent this avian devastation to your business.

 

Chemical Damage

Birds are capable of waging chemical warfare against your commercial building’s roof in the form of bird excrement. This due to bird droppings containing a high concentration of uric acid.  The uric acid can damage the costly roofing membrane as well as roofing tar. Besides destroying the coating of your roof, bird droppings can inflict airborne illnesses. Bird waste matter can get sucked into your HVAC systems through the air intake, located on the roof. This can result in health issues and very unpleasing odors.

“Studies have shown that the life expectancy of a warehouse roof can be cut in half just by the continuous application of bird droppings.”

 

Fire Damage

Birds build nests made from grass, twigs, and other materials that make for the perfect kindling to start a fire. These nests can be found typically next to electrical signs, machinery, and other places close to both the roofing and exposed to weather elements that could start a fire. Additionally, their nests can cause drain blockage. Standing water leads to leaky commercial roofs causing longstanding damage to the roofing membrane.

 

Prevention

A lot of damage can be prevented with regular roofing maintenance. Plan weekly routine checks and cleaning to ensure your commercial roof is clear of bird droppings. This is especially important before it rains. The uric acid in their droppings becomes even more corrosive when wet. You can also invest in bird spikes which will deter birds from spending too much time on your roof. Additionally, there are specialized nets that stop birds from damaging your roof. At the end of the day, birds may seem innocuous, but don’t underestimate the damage they can inflict.

 

 

Advancements in Commercial Roofing

What is a commercial building without a roof? Or any roof for that matter? Not a place you want to run your business or livelihood from that’s for certain. To see were commercial roofing techniques and services, such as the ones used by Rockn G Roofing in Miami, OK developed from, we need to look at their predecessors. Before TPO roofing, acrylic roofing, and silicone roofing coatings were used, most roofings were very rudimentary.

When commercial buildings were first created during the industrial era, wood, slate, and clay tiles were commonly used. These materials were very accessible during this time until the mid-19th century. With the coming of the second industrial revolution came the commercial production of steel industries. Mega-corporations alongside the steel industry created more reliable and less expensive roofing options. Commercial roofs were then created from metal. While metal was expensive, it was more durable than the roofing materials previously used. Metal roofing embraced the steep slope roof design, as did its predecessors.

During the 19th century, commercial roofers began using bituminous membrane. Bituminous membrane consisted of rubber and thermoplastic material similar to asphalt. This type of roofing technique was more commonly referred to as built-up roofing, BUR. Like commercial roofs today, it mimicked the use of laying strong material in between bitumen. Its top layer was typically gravel. This kind of roofing is very close to what commercial roofers use today.

Built-up roofing changed the way commercial roofers designed roofs forever. Due to its ability to withstand rain, commercial roofers moved to utilize flat roofs. As you can see in every commercialized area, flat roofs are still being used to this day.

With time, commercial roofer contractors began using new materials to improve the bituminous membrane. During the 1970s, the most common materials used were ethylene propylene diene Terpolymer (EPDM), or a form of PVC. These membranes were known for their flexibility, however, the materials these coatings were made from became brittle with time.

To save on roofing costs for both business owners and commercial roofing contractors, a new coating membrane was designed. This material is still actively used today in 2019. It is referred to as thermoplastic polyolefins, commonly known as TPO.

As TPO became the more predominant roofing material used for commercial flat roof buildings, concerns for safety became an issue. During the 1990s, people were fearful of the halogenated fire retardants used in TPO roofing. Due to these concerns, manufacturers replaced it with magnesium hydroxide (MDH). MDH has flame retardant properties that make it much safer than halogenated chemicals.

TPO to this day remains one of the top choices for commercial roof coatings. TPO is affordable, resistant to extreme weather, and has a quick application time. In only a few hundred years, commercial roofing has gone from organic materials such as clay to manufactured chemicals able to withstand temperatures exceeding 200 degrees.

Look at how far TPO roofing has come from the 19th century to 2019. If you’re considering TPO roofing, call us. We give estimates and quotes for all commercial roofing projects including restoration, installation, and maintenance. 

Lifespan of Commercial Roofs

Lifespan of Commercial Roofs

Commercial flat roofs are prone to weather damage such as standing water from poor drainage, as well as enduring harsh UV rays from the sun. Most commercial roofing companies will create a roof maintenance plan in order to expand your commercial roof’s membrane longevity. Every roof will eventually need to be repaired and replaced. Extending the lifespan of your commercial roof with roof maintenance will reduce the financial burden of having to replace the entire roof. Many commercial roofers in Miami, OK, offer roof maintenance and roofing repair for great prices. You can always contact Rockn G Roofing to schedule a quote for your roofing needs.
There is a large variety of roofing membranes for commercial roofs. Such as tar and gravel, asphalt, steel, copper, or synthetic membranes such as silicone or acrylic. Both types of roof coating significantly increase the lifespan of commercial roofs. It’s important to know what type of roofing has been installed, and if it has had any protective coating applied to it.

Lifespans of Commercial Roofs

Before we dive into how you can help extend the lifespan of your commercial roof, let’s review a few key factors. First, we need to review the expected use for each type of commercial roofing.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) – 20-30 years
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM) – 20 – 35 years
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) – 19-29 years
Metal Roofs – 30-45 years
Asphalt roofs – 20-45 years

As you can see, different roofing membranes have roughly the same lifespan (20-35 years on average). There are different aspects that can affect the lifespan of your commercial roof. Some of these factors are:

Flaws in the installation process

If the roof was installed improperly, this would have a huge impact on how long your roof will last before it needs to be gutted and replaced. Poor quality roofing materials, improper reinforcement of joints, and other flaws will make shorten the lifespan anywhere from 5-10 years.

Roof Slope

The slope of your roof will impact the likelihood of standing water. Pooling water deteriorates a roofs membrane over time due to the physical stress it has on the membrane. The more stresses the membrane endures, the shorter its lifespan will be.

Environmental Factors

Intense weather conditions such as scorching summers or freezing winters can impact the membrane of your roof. Different roof materials, such as synthetic coatings, are susceptible to temperatures. Whereas commercial metal roofs take more damage from hail. Be prepared for every season and its influence on weather patterns.

When choosing a commercial roof coating, cover your bases. Looking over minor things may result in large financial losses down the road. Unsure of what you need? Let Rockn G Roofing determine the best commercial roofing plan for you!

Leaky Commercial Roofs

Leaking Roof Creates Mold

Leaky Commercial Roofs

Leaks happen — whether it’s inside your bathroom, residential home, or commercial building (including your commercial roof), every roof is susceptible to developing leaks. Leaks can be small, but over time they can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. Commercial roofing company Rockin G Roofing in Miami, OK, wants to help ensure you can identify leaks and the conditions that can create leaks.

Is Your Commercial Roof Leaking?

It may not always be obvious when your commercial roof is leaking. Here are a few tell-tale signs you may need to consult with a commercial roof contractor.


Strong, Foul Odors
If you find a strange smell coming from a particular area, it very well could be from mold growing due to moisture getting in through compromised areas of the roof.

Water Puddles
If you find random puddles of water, there’s a very high the roof has been damaged and is leaking. Make sure to move any sort of equipment or important documents away from the leaking area.

Visible Mold
If you find mold in ceiling tiles or near the top of walls means there is something wrong. Mold can only appear when there is a high amount of moisture finding its way into your space

Ceiling Water Damage Stains
Leaks will typically create stains on your ceiling tiles. Ceiling discoloration is usually coupled with mold, which creates a toxic environment to be in. If you start to see water stains on your ceiling, now is the time to start investigating any possible leaks in your roof.

Mold Growing in Ceiling Panels

What Can Cause a Commercial Roof To Leak?

There are many reasons why your commercial roof has been compromised and is now leaking. While repairing your roof may bring unexpected costs, not repairing your roof will lead to disaster.

Damaged Coating
The protective barrier applied to your roof may have been damaged from foot traffic, UV rays, harsh weather, or debris. Over time, the roof membrane will need to be repaired on its own, without external causes damaging it.

UV Rays
UV Rays are extremely harsh and will break down any material over a long enough period. The hot and cold weather also causes the roof membrane to contract and expands, which also puts a lot of wear and tear on your roof. Different types of roof coatings are more UV resistant than others, such as acrylic roof coatings.

Weather Damage
Tough weather conditions can also damage the roof’s coating. Hail can physically change the structure of the roof, which weakens the seal and coating. Tornadoes can pick up dangerously large items (fences, cars, large tree branches) and other debris that can cause structural damage to your commercial roof.

Water Stains from Leaking Roof

Poor Drainage
If your commercial roof has poor drainage, standing water will accumulate and wear down the protective coating. Ensuring your drains, gutters, downspouts, and scuppers are cleaned on a regular schedule will reduce the risk of standing water on your commercial roof.

Aged Roofing
Typically, commercial roofs have a usability cycle of 15-20 years before needing to be overhauled. By taking precautions and repairing the roof as need be, you can save your roof 2-3 years from being replaced. Reach out to your commercial roof contractor about their warranty policies and follow up on roof maintenance plans to extend the longevity of your commercial roof.

Compromised Areas
Commercial roofs have many open penetration spots, such as HVAC units, vents, drain pipes, and gas lines. These areas are naturally high-risk areas for leaks due to their structure. Regular maintenance to reinforce these areas is needed to prevent roof leaks.

Choosing a Commercial Roofing Business in Miami, OK

Once you’ve decided you need to reach out to a professional roofer, there are many things you need to consider before hiring a roofing company. Here are our best tips to ensure you’re able to choose the right commercial roofing company to fit your needs:

Independent Roofers or Roofing Commercial Franchise?

Deciding on which kind of roofing company you want to work with is the first step you’ll take, and arguably the longest. When researching roofing companies, keep in mind that price is not everything. A large roofing franchise may be able to offer cheaper quotes to complete your project, but they may not be able to offer the same quality roofing as an independent roofing company would. Being able to quickly resolve questions or issues will save you headaches in the future. Typically, independent roofing companies will be able to spend more time taking care of your concerns because they are able to focus on you as an individual client.

Recommendations and Reviews

What a company’s previous client has to say about their work will give you better insight into the quality of service they are able to provide. Roofing companies should be able to recommend you to their previous roofing clients. Companies that are professional, reliable, honest, and hardworking will have clients willing to vouch on their behalf. Another great way to check out the quality of a company is to read their online reviews. Visit places such as Yelp, Houzz, Angie’s List, and the BBB to see what clients have to say about the service they received.


When you work with local, independent roofers, you can often visit previous projects they’ve completed and talk one-on-one with other business owners about their experience with the company. Whereas with larger companies, their completed commercial roofs may be hundreds of miles away from you, and you may not be able to reach out to their previous clients. You should definitely put quality over quantity when investing in commercial roofing.

Proper Certification

It is extraordinarily important for any roofing business to have up to date certifications. Certified roofing companies in Miami, OK will ensure your commercial roof is up to date with today’s standards for quality, safety, and more. Don’t waste your time with businesses that lack credentials or refuse to show proof of them. Businesses that are unable to provide proper verifications are often using improper means to complete roofing projects.

Quotes and Estimates

Budgeting it is a very important task when it comes to remodeling or adding a new commercial roof. There are several things you need to ask before agreeing to work with any commercial roofer. Make sure you fully understand the services being offered and their pricing. You do not want to overpay for services you do not need. It is advised to not make any payments to the roofing company until after the project has been completed. This ensures that the roofing company will uphold its promised level of quality and roofing services.

Guarantees and Warranties

Companies will generally offer guarantees or warranties for completed roofing projects. If a company does not offer either, you will take that as a sign of bad faith from the company. Companies that do not offer long-standing promises on their work tend to offer poor quality roofing services. Finding a roofing contractor that will invest their time and effort into your project will pay off if or should anything goes wrong.

Commercial Roof Repairs

Flat roofs, the most common type of commercial roofing, are prone to enduring water pooling which can lead to leaky areas in your commercial roof in Miami, OK. With the right commercial roof coating and installation, you can minimize the likelihood of your commercial roof needing repairs. Investing in the proper commercial roofing solution in the first place will definitely help reduce money spent on repairs, but repairs will be needed for any kind of roof solution you choose due to regular wear and tear from weather conditions and lifespan of materials used.

What You Can Do to Reduce Damages

The first step you should take to reducing damage to your commercial roof is ensuring your flat roof has a proper drainage system in place. There are multiple areas to ensure drainage is working properly: downspouts, gutters, and drains. Regular maintenance and upkeep of these areas will make it harder for water to pool on your flat roof. Why is drainage so important? If water does not properly drain from your commercial roof, the water will begin to add too much weight to your roof coating. Between acrylic and silicone roofing options, both roofing coatings have their limits to how much weight they can withstand. Once the weight of the water compromises your roof coating, your building will become sup susceptible to mold, leaks, and other extensive issues. It is more cost efficient to prevent damage than to repair it.

Follow Up With Roof Maintenance Plans

All commercial roof systems have a limited life span of around 20 years. Regardless of what materials you use for your commercial roof, no roofing option will be a permanent solution. However, you can extend the lifespan of your roof. Rockn G Roofing of Miami, OK, offer up to 50 year long warranties for any commercial roof we install. Investing in preventative roof maintenance will be the best investment you can make.

Is Acrylic Roofing Right For Your Commercial Roof?

Is Acrylic Roofing Right For Your Commercial Roof?

With the many commercial roofing options available in Miami, Oklahoma, it’s hard to choose which roof coating you want to invest in. Your commercial roof needs to withstand the elements year after year, so making an educated decision on your roofing is vital. Get the insider details on Acrylic roofing here:

Weather Proof

Commercial Roof Coating

Acrylic roofing is highly reflective which has many benefits. During hot weather months, the reflective coating will bounce intense UV rays away, saving you on cooling costs. They also have higher elongation which makes them extremely durable in harsh weather conditions. Roofs in Miami, OK, go through many intense weather conditions throughout the year. Ensuring your commercial roof is secured with the right kind of coating is essential.

Longevity

Commercial roofs need to withstand the test of time. Acrylic roofing is known for its long-lasting chemical makeup that allows the roofing to remain white and reflective longer than silicone roofing. Unlike silicone coatings, acrylic roofing does not discolor due to tar. The longer your roofing remains reflective and undamaged on its own, the easier it is to maintenance costs.

Cost Effective

Other roofing options require roof fabric to be used along with it, but acrylic roofing does not. This commercial roofing option allows you to save on extra costs. Its reflectiveness and durability will allow you to wait much longer to replace your roof than other options. The cost of acrylic roofing materials is vastly lower than most commercial roofing coats. The typical acrylic roof coating is 2-3 times cheaper than coatings such as silicone. With acrylic roofing, you don’t have to sacrifice quality for value’s sake!

Ponding

The biggest downside to acrylic roofing is ponding water. Large amounts of ponding water over long periods of time can cause damage to acrylic roofing. However, there are proactive steps that can be taken to prevent damage. With flat roofs, we will recommend ensuring there is proper drainage for the roof. In addition to drainage, the acrylic roofing may require fabric embedded into it to ensure your commercial roof coating stays intact.
