Commercial Roof Coating
A commercial roof coating can be sprayed or rolled onto an existing roof to extend the roof’s lifespan and protect against damage. At Capital Coating, we offer two main coating types: elastomeric coating and spray foam roofing.
An elastomeric coating is a polymer-based liquid compound that expands and contracts with fluctuating temperatures to prevent cracking. Spray foam roofing is a polyurethane material that offers similar benefits. Our elastomeric coatings have ENERGY STAR® and LEED certification, and both roofing systems minimize maintenance requirements.
The benefits of our commercial and industrial roof coatings include:
- Versatility: Our coating materials can adhere to a wide range of substrates. We offer rubber roof coating, metal roof coating, flat roof coating and more.
- Longevity: When properly applied and maintained, roof coatings can last 10-20 years. By creating a watertight barrier over the original roofing material, a coating can significantly extend a roof’s lifespan.
- Efficiency: Our roof coatings are white in color, allowing them to reflect heat and regulate your facility’s temperature. With a flat roof coating, industrial facilities can save on energy and reduce strain on HVAC systems.
Our Commercial Roof Services
Do you need a professional to repair, restore, maintain, inspect or otherwise service the roof of your industrial building? The roofing contractors at Capital Coating provide commercial roofing and coating services for buildings in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. We are known for our high-quality workmanship, and we strive for perfection in every job we take on, so you can count on us to produce exceptional results.
Commercial and industrial roofs can become damaged over time and when exposed to severe weather conditions. Flat roofs are particularly prone to damage from pooling water. Our roof coatings offer a simple method for repairing minor roof damages.
In addition to fixing all roof types, we can repair spray foam roofing that has blistered. The process, which is called scarfing, involves removing any damaged portions of foam and replacing them with new foam.
If your roof has suffered severe damage, normal repairs may not be possible. However, total roof replacement can be expensive and disruptive, forcing you to pause operations while the roof is stripped away and rebuilt. If you have been told your building needs roof replacement, allow us to inspect your roof and offer a second opinion.
In many cases, a coating application can serve as an alternative to roof replacement. Roof coating is less expensive, less intrusive and better for the environment. Even if you do need a full roof replacement, you may still consider a roof coating to protect your new roofing asset.
Roofs wear down over time, whether they are made of metal, rubber, wood, gravel, asphalt or another material. Even if your industrial building’s roof does not need an immediate replacement, a roof coating could help restore it to its best possible state, improving its appearance and structural integrity. Our roofing contractors have experience restoring old commercial roofs, so you can entrust us with the project. If your roof has a coating that has been damaged or improperly maintained, additional coatings are always an option.
The most efficient way to prevent roof damage is to conduct routine maintenance. Although roof coatings keep maintenance requirements to a minimum, you still need to look for potential problems.
Scheduling preventive maintenance can give you peace of mind and the ability to detect minor concerns before they turn into significant and costly issues. If you are searching for roofing companies capable of performing commercial roof maintenance on your schedule, Capital Coating can meet your needs.
Our roofing contractors can inspect all kinds of roofs for structural integrity and signs of damage. Regular inspections can help preserve your roof’s warranty, document your roof’s history for potential insurance claims and limit your company’s liability. If we notice anything off when inspecting your roof, we can recommend a roof coating or other solution.
Leaks and other unforeseen roof issues can disrupt operations at your facility. They may make the inside of your facility unsafe for workers, damage equipment or make it difficult to manufacture safe products and comply with regulations, such as in the pharmaceutical industry. When you discover your roof is damaged, you need to act immediately to prevent further losses. At Capital Coating, our safety-trained roofing contractors will quickly respond to emergency service requests.
