Northern Pennsylvania and neighboring states experience hailstorms dozens of times every year. Hail can occur during spring, summer, or fail. While no commercial roof system is impervious to hail damage, you may be wondering if roof coatings can withstand hail damage, especially since commercial roof coatings are far less expensive than a complete replacement.
Elastomeric coatings and other commercial roof coatings can withstand hail. How well depends in part on the size of the hailstones and the age of the roof system.
Hailstones vary in size, from about 1 cm to 4 cm. Larger hail that falls at a higher velocity obviously will cause more damage to a roof system than smaller hail in a less severe storm.

are among the most durable roof options. Special considerations, however,
should be given before you commit to a metal roof.

Although many buildings are said to have flat roofs, that is
somewhat of a misnomer. Flat roofs are slightly sloped so that rain, snow, and
other moisture can properly drain. So, even though they appear to be completely
flat, they are not. However, their mostly flat structure allows for more
efficient use of space and they are easier to install. Typically, the cost to
maintain them is less expensive than the cost to maintain a pitched roof.
If your building endures dramatic climate changes throughout
each season, its roofing material will be put under more stress than commercial
buildings in more temperate, even climates. Temperature extreme can reduce the
lifespan of a commercial roof. A roof that is accessed a lot will also wear down

What is commercial roofing?
Commercial roofing is a specialized trade in which a
contractor installs, restores, or repairs the roofs of large industrial
buildings, warehouses, and commercial properties. Commercial roofs usually have
a low slope or are flat because these types of roofs are less expensive to
install and maintain than pitched roofs that you typically see on residential
buildings. Commercial roofs are usually made up of BUR (built-up roofing)
consisting of tar and gravel, EDPM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), PVC (polyvinyl
chloride), TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin), metal, or modified bitumen.
