Essential Guide to Opting for Best Roof Insulation Paint

With summer comes one of the most concerning issues: rising temperatures. This begs the question, how can we heat-isolate our homes? Furthermore, how can we avoid roof water leakage? You undoubtedly want a comfortable life for your family and keep as safe roof above your heads. Therefore, in this blog, we propose some practical, low-cost solutions that will assist you.

The simplest and most cost-effective way to achieve such maintenance is through— insulation paints! Whatever the type of roof you have, insulation paints provide you with the finest protection that will increase your property’s value, enhance its durability, and offer a brand-new appearance to your roof.

 

There are many other reasons that will push you to paint your roof: whether you aim to improve your roof’s water resistance, increase heat reflective thermal performance, soundproofing your home, or if you are simply thinking of a roof color that will do wonders to the exterior look of your home.

 Jazeera Paints has created this essential guide that would enable you to select the most suitable roof insulation paints for your needs. These insulation paints were created to protect your home in full compliance with local and international standards and to accommodate the weather conditions in our area.

Thermal Insulation Paint: Cool Roofs

As the name suggests, thermal insulation paint, like Cool Roof, is a type of paint that is successful in cooling down your roof and home. Due to its ability to reflect solar radiation it draws out excess heat before it even penetrates inside and enters your home. Thus, your home will have better thermal insulation as an advantage. Many experts advise choosing this option if you want to reduce your electricity consumption during the summer months, especially in Saudi Arabia, the Middle East, and North Africa, where temperatures are high most of the year.

Using Cool Roofs has several advantages:

1- “Cool Roof” gives you the best protection, as it preserves your roof from thermal shock and corrosion.

2- Thermal insulation paint reduces the need for air conditioning, cutting the cost of your electricity bill.

3- Carbon dioxide emissions within your home will be reduced when you're not using air conditioning.

You can browse through the Cool Roof catalog to find out more.

Exterior Thermal Insulation:

Heat protection for your home should not be limited to the roof but should also include the exterior walls. The exterior of your home must be protected because it affects the entire structure. Dethar is a textured paint that can help you solve your exterior wall issues. This insulation paint is a multi-layered system made up of various products that is applied to the exterior of a home. It provides 70 percent to 80 percent solar radiation protection and saves 40 percent to 50 percent electricity, depending on your typical electricity consumption. Because buildings facing west or east are more likely to be exposed to solar radiation, we recommend installing this system.

The Dethar system is difficult to implement, and not every paint technician will be able to do so correctly. We recommend that you hire our professional painters to complete the job correctly! You can request an expert’s visit to come to your home and make the necessary recommendations.

Water-Proofing Insulation Paint

As the name suggests, waterproofing paint is created with the aim of preventing water from penetrating. Thus, water-proofing paint does not permit rainwater from getting in, while keeping your roof resistant to mud and filth and allowing the paint job to be long-lasting as well. Our product, Roof Protection, as an example of paint that protects surfaces and roofs from water leakage.

In addition, Roof Protection can prevent the growth of fungi and mold, which have grave detrimental effects on your family’s overall health. In fact, a moist and damp roof can magnify and worsen serious medical conditions, such as respiratory conditions. While mold spores are nothing to joke about, water-proofing paint can help you keep them out of your home as much as possible.

Roof Protection can be applied to any type of surface, but if the house is new, you can test products such as our well-known Flexiguard. This waterproofing product is used beneath tiles. Apply it to the surface first, then tile over it. This product is highly resistant to alkalinity and efflorescence. To learn more, browse the Flexiguard catalog.

Thus, whether you paint your roof yourself or hire a professional, you must ensure that the waterproofing is done correctly in both cases. This will keep water from ruining good paintwork, ensuring the longevity of that paint job (you can request a professional paint technician to ensure the quality of the application).

Sound-Proofing Paint:

And now, it is time to paint the excessive noise away with just a lick (maybe more) of fresh roof paint, and it will get deadly silent inside! This sound-proofing paint used on roofs is a smart move not only to invest in your home’s outer appearance, but in its inner peace as well. This is a much more cost-effective way of preventing loud sounds from the outside world, without heavily spending on time-consuming, expensive materials. 

And this is why acoustic paint has been recognized as one of the most beneficial and remarkable methods for dulling sound. As aforementioned, it is popular for being an inexpensive, effortless way to get your own tranquil space, in comparison to the installation of panels and other equipment into your home.

 

But how does sound-proofing paint really work? How does it dampen sounds? Well, since acoustic paint is a thick, water-based paint, you will see that it dampens sound by adding extra layers to your roof. You can try our sound-diminishing paint, Silence, by applying it once to your roof, and then recoat to prevent echo within the rooms of your home.
