A new era of commercial roofing is here

Roof Coating

Roof coatings have come a long way and are transforming the commercial roofing industry. Liquid-applied roof coating systems create a seamless barrier to the elements. When the current roof is in reasonably good condition, with appropriate repairs and preparation, it can be applied directly over the existing roof.

  • When installed by a factory-certified contractor, most flat roof coating products come with the same factory warranties as a full replacement!

Roof Coating Products

Reinforced Acrylic Roof Coating

Acrylic coatings are some of the most cost-efficient water-based products on the market. They are ideally suited to projects with positive drainage and little or no ponding. They can be installed with custom colors, although white is the best choice in most situations due to its reflective, energy-saving properties. Acrylic coatings are versatile and easy to apply yet have excellent adhesion to most substrates, including new and existing metal, structural concrete, TPO, PVC, EPDM, Polyiso, gypsum roof board, and asphaltic roofs. An acrylic roof coating system combines reinforcement and toughness with a fabric assembly and protects against weathering, aging, and UV exposure.

With manufacturer-backed warranties of up to 25 years, acrylic coatings are a great solution to restore and prolong your flat roof’s life!

Silicone Roof Coatings

Silicone coatings are among the most popular and best performing of all coating types. Thanks to its high solids content, silicone performs exceptionally well against wind, rain, snow, ice, and can resist ponding water better than most coatings. Silicone coatings are also known for their reflectivity to keep your building cool during the summer months. Lastly, silicone coatings come with great warranties, up to 25 years in some cases.

Silicone is the best coating for longevity, UV reflection, and ponding water.

Spray Polyurethane Foam

In spray form roofing, isocyanate and polyol are blended directly onsite to give your roof a tough as nails coating. Spray foam has been popular for decades but has only recently found its way into the roofing world. Thanks to its high insulation value, toughness, and strength, spray polyurethane is an instant upgrade to both your roof and entire building.

Choose spray foam roofing for extreme temperatures, high insulation value, and strength.

Roof Coating Process

Roof coating products have evolved tremendously in the last two decades. When coatings first came to market, they were primarily used for repairs or small projects. Especially in the last decade, there have been huge steps forward in technology. Most major manufacturers offer a full line of coating products to complement their single-ply systems.

Roof coatings have become favored because they offer a solid, seamless surface, much faster installation, and huge cost and tax savings. All this while carrying the same or similar factory warranties as a full replacement.

Is your roof a candidate for coating?

  • The first step in the roofing project is a thorough onsite inspection.
  • The inspection aims to determine if the roofing project is a good candidate for coating.
  • The majority of roofing projects are suitable for coating.
  • The existing roofing should be in reasonably good condition for a coating to be possible.
  • Isolated trouble areas with significant deterioration or leaks can be spot repaired, making the project suitable for coating.
  • If the roofing is deteriorated or has had significant leaks causing damage below the surface, the coating may not be a suitable option.
  • In such cases, traditional roof replacement options can be discussed.

If your project is a good fit, what is the process?

  • Different existing roofing systems exist, such as built-up roofing, single-ply roofs, ballasted roofs, or previously coated systems.
  • Depending on the current roof and its condition, the appropriate technique is used to prepare it for coating and ensure optimum adhesion.
  • In most cases, various coating materials reinforce existing seams and penetrations.
  • This ensures that the primary points of failure in flat roofing systems are incredibly robust.
  • Once seams and penetrations are cured, the roof is thoroughly cleaned and primed (if necessary).
  • When everything is dry and reinforced, 1-4 roof coatings are applied.
  • The final result is a seamless shell that can protect the property for up to 25 years.
