What are Roof Coatings?

Roof coatings are liquefied polymers applied to protect and extend the life of a roof system.

Benefits of Roof Coatings

Along with preserving and extending the life of your roof, coatings can provide a highly reflective surface that may help reduce energy costs by lowering the surface temperature of the roof.  Additionally, coatings provide a seamless application that conforms to irregular roof surfaces, as well as seals cracks and splits in the roof surface.  Coatings can be applied to address a variety of roofing concerns.  When choosing a coating, it is important to consider the location and current condition of the roof, as well as ponding water, chemical exposure, high heat, and UV radiation.

Types of Commercial Roof Coatings

Acrylic roof coatings cure to form a durable, continuous elastomeric membrane over the surface of your roof.  Once applied, they form a seamless, watertight seal over the entire roof; including around vents, flashings, and protrusions.  We use products that are a self-flashing, lightweight acrylic roof coating that provides a continuous membrane while sealing seams and eliminating leaks.  This coating is energy efficient and environmentally friendly, as well as being highly reflective and contains no VOCs.  Durable with excellent weathering capabilities, this advanced liquid-applied system restores metal roofs and can eliminate minor metal roof problems.

Other Roof Coatings

Aluminum coatings can be applied to bitumen based roofs and certain metal roof applications.  Bitumen based roofs can be re-saturated and copolymer coatings can be applied to single ply and metal roofs.
