Asphalt-based Roof Coatings
This class of coatings are generally silver in color. They have the least amount of flexibility and therefore the shortest lifespan. However they are the cheapest and therefore the most common product used by uneducated roofers.
Acrylic-based Roof Coatings
This class of coating has a high degree of flexibility and a longer lifespan. White is the default color and provides the most energy savings. However, they can be tinted to any color imaginable. (Note: darker colors do tend to fade over time). The biggest drawback is that they do not perform well on flat roofs that might hold water.
Solvent based Roof Coatings
The premier class of roof coating has the greatest combination of strength and flexibility. White is again the most common color because of energy savings. There are several other colors available and they are fade resistant. The cured coating is impervious to standing water and can be applied to flat roofs with confidence.
