If your commercial flat roof is old or damaged, chances are you’re exploring all your options to address the problem. While a roof replacement is a great long-term solution, it’s also an expensive one. What’s more, many times a roof repair or roof coating can add years onto the lifespan of your roof while costing much less than a roof replacement. At Elite Roofing, one commercial roof repair solution we recommend especially highly is Ecodur from Castagra. This roof coating is incredibly durable, sustainable, and, importantly, affordable. What makes Ecodur such an excellent flat roof repair solution? We’re taking a look in today’s blog post!
Versatile and easy to install
One of the most notable aspects of Ecodur from Castagra is its excellent adhesion, making it versatile and easy to install. Unlike many other products, this coating can bond effectively with a variety of roofs. This is especially important when it comes to older tar and gravel roofs. These roofs can be very difficult to repair, and most coatings have trouble bonding on tar and gravel without a potentially damaging round of pressure washing. However, Ecodur can bond even without pressure washing, making the coating process much easier across a wide variety of commercial flat roofing systems.
Thanks to its ease of installation, Castagra’s Ecodur offers much lower labor costs, as a commercial roofing expert won’t have to spend as much time preparing your roof before installation. Ecodur is also cost-effective in other ways, however. This roof coating is made primarily from castor oil and gypsum, which are both widely available, low-cost materials. Additionally, Ecodur lasts for a long time, and it’s readily repairable. This helps extend the life of your commercial roofing system by many years, saving you money in the process.
Durable and highly water-resistant
Ecodur from Castagra may be affordable, but it definitely isn’t “cheap.” In other words, Castagra doesn’t sacrifice anything when it comes to the excellent quality Ecodur provides. To begin with, Ecodur is highly durable. It retains its flexibility for years without cracking, and it’s quite impact-resistant. In fact, Ecodur is also used to stand up to wear and wear as a flooring material, so it can take a beating on your roof!
Besides its toughness, Ecodur is also highly resistant to the elements, resisting UV damage even in areas with a lot of direct sunlight. But perhaps the most notable attribute of Castagra’s Ecodur is the product’s water resistance. Ecodur was first used in the tank lining industry, meaning it has held up to all sorts of liquids, from water to oils and chemicals. Because of this, Ecodur is effective even on flat roofs with drainage issues and ponding water!
Finally, in addition to its durability, affordability, and versatility, Castagra’s Ecodur is also a very sustainable product. It produces zero harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and it contains no BPA in its formula. Ecodur is also pollution- and chemical-resistant, and testing has shown zero measurable effects of saltwater submersion—thus, no runoff chemicals due to rainwater. Lastly, Ecodur is naturally white in color, giving your roof a cool, reflective surface that can reduce energy usage during the summer compared to dark-colored roofing materials.
