How Does ExpandoThane Work?

Many commercial property managers and owners only consider roof coatings when there’s a leak or some other urgent problem. But this approach can end up wasting a lot of money! At Universal Contracting, we specialize in roof coatings like ExpandoThane — The #1 protective, waterproof, energy-efficient white roof coating on the market today.

With a quick installation of ExpandoThane, you can dramatically reduce rooftop temperatures, which means you’ll start saving energy and money right away.

What exactly is ExpandoThane?

This is a completely seamless system - no openings, no weak seams, no penetrating fasteners, no thermal bridging, and is self adhering. It is an ENERGY STAR® certified product based on independent testing.

Cut Peak Cooling Demand Up to 15%!

ExpandoThane isn’t your typical commercial roofing product—it’s far better! Especially for a warm and wet climate like Florida, this advanced roof coating provides benefits you won’t want to miss:

  • Big Energy Savings: This Topps Seal® white roof coating has been proven to reduce rooftop temperatures by as much as 50°F. In peak seasons, this reduced temperature can lower cooling demand by up to 15%!
  • Increased Comfort: With less heat and solar radiation being absorbed by the roof, your building will stay cooler and better insulated on the hottest days. 
  • Extreme Durability: ExpandoThane stays intact when exposed to high impacts, making it the perfect product for wind- and hail-prone areas. Lab testing shows that the seal won’t even break when struck by .22 caliber shots!
  • Extended Lifespan: By protecting your roof from common issues like UV damage, thermal movement, and water penetration, ExpandoThane can significantly impact the lifespan of your roof.

The bottom line? In every way, ExpandoThane makes your roof a better part of your building!

The ExpandoThane Difference

ExpandoThane’s secret comes down to the micro-blowing agents present in its exclusive polyurea formula. When applied, these agents expand up to 7 times the sprayed volume, filling microscopic crevices and tiny surface imperfections that other roof coatings can’t. The end result is a virtually impenetrable waterproof surface. For ease of installation, ExpandoThane can be directly applied over many types of roofing, including:

  • Mod Bit
  • BUR
  • Concrete
  • ISO Board
  • Metal
  • EPDM
  • TPO

Theroplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Roof Coating

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is another option becoming more popular on commercial roofs these days. It's a single-ply roof membrane coating made of durable thermoplastic materials. You may see this used often on flat or low sloping roofs. Covering a wide range of extreme climates, this coating is ideal for commercial buildings.

TPO coatings are also known as single-ply membranes, and the synthetic sheets can be applied through ballasting, mechanical attachment, or various chemical adhesives. Property managers take advantage of a product like TPO Roof Coatings to repair or prevent a roofing emergency or just for a more energy-efficient roof solution.

Silicone Roof Coatings

There is a reason why Silicone Roof Coatings are preferred by business owners. When talking about the various weather elements, let's examine the effect that UV rays could cause to a roof. Imagine saving thousands of dollars by cutting your cooling costs during the hot summer months and reduce the amount of work from your HVAC system. Universal Contracting installs Silicone Roof Coatings which can reflect up to 80-90% of the sun's powerful UV rays. 

We've tested the silicone roof coatings as well. While minimizing the sun's rays saves energy, it will also prolong the life of the roof. Many of today's silicone roofing coating solutions are safe and meet or exceed state-regulated material safety standards.
