Commercial roof coatings are a fully adhered, seamless membrane that are either sprayed or rolled on. The elasticity of a coating provides the ability to expand and contract with fluctuating temperatures without damaging your roof.

Can my roof be coated?

Almost all commercial roofing substrates are excellent candidates, but the condition of your roof is the ultimate factor in deciding. A professional commercial roofing company will be able to answer any questions you may have.

In certain instances, your roof can be coated instead of needing to be completely replaced, saving you time and money. With a roof inspection, a commercial roofing contractor will be able to advise you on the best course of action for your specific roofing asset.

How do coatings influence my energy costs?

One of the defining qualities of a roof coating is that they are reflective. Instead of absorbing and retaining heat, they reflect the harmful UV rays. This is how they are able to help regulate the interior temperature of your facility.

How long does a roof coating last?

With routine roof inspections and maintenance, a coating will provide you with years of protection. Premium coatings have the ability to last 10-15 years and there are several different warranty options available.

Most likely! As long as no extensive damage has occurred, recoating is always an option.

Does my roof need to be prepped before it can be coated?
