Roof Coatings

A roof coating is a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roofing membrane. It has elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage. A roof coating is the topmost layer of protection for the membrane, receiving the impact of sunlight (both infrared and ultraviolet (UV), rain, hail and physical damage. Roof coating can be applied by brush, roller or spray.

Roof coatings can be used to restore metal, asphalt built up, modified bitumen, polyurethane foam, single ply ( EPDM, TPO, PVC ).

Sixty percent of all roofs in the United States are replaced prematurely because of leaks.

  • Roof Coatings will help prevent roof leaks, while extending the life of your roof. Most coating manufacturers offer 5 or 10 year system warranties on coating Installations.

Roof coatings are a popular alternative because it is more cost effective than a retrofit. Additionally, compared to a retrofit which essentially adds another layer of roofing material, Roof coatings create a chemical bond to the current roofing substrate essentially ‘bulking up’ the existing system.

A roof coating job can pay for itself through reduced energy bills in summer.
Field-applied reflective roof coatings can extend the useful life of nearly every roof substrate by keeping a roof surface cool and providing a level of protection from the sun and weather. Field studies have shown that cool roof coatings can lower rooftop temperatures and reduce air conditioning bills.
Americans spend about $40 billion annually to air condition buildings – sixth of all electricity generated in this country. Coatings reflect 85-90% of heat and ultraviolet rays from the sun- reducing your air conditioning cost by up to 20-30%.
