And it's been unseasonably hot where the CoatingsPro offices are located on the West Coast. We've heard about tornadoes and hurricanes and every- thing in between. And why does that weather matter? Because much like a raincoat or sunscreen, a facility's roof is its first defense against moisture infiltration. "It's Raining on the Inside" may be a nice song from Amy Grant, but it certainly isn't a nice message to get from tenants! As a reader of CoatingsPro, you know first-hand the importance of coatings — roof coatings specifically. ey should protect the substrate, create a leak-free environment, and possibly save the owner money on heating, ventilation, and air condition- ing (HVAC) bills if they're lucky. For someone with such an import- ant responsibility to set a building up for success from the top, you need the information that will help you do the job to the best of your abilities. Enter the Roof Coatings supplement.

On page 28, industry expert Jonathan Keim shares some tips on what to consider before accepting a big roof coating project. Game Time! rough the roof. Raise the roof. Roof over one's head. Cat on a hot tin roof. ere are a variety of idioms about roofs, and there's a reason why: Roofs are important. W hether you're talking access, surface prep, material selection, and everything in between, knowing your stuff can mean the difference between a roof that's bargain-basement to one that's on the top of its game.
