Most roofs are considered coatable, but the asphalt roof can’t be coated like most other roofs can. As a matter of fact, it is important that the roof is in a coatable condition to apply this kind of coating. We work with many metal and single-ply roofs (like TPO membrane, P.V.C. membrane, and E.P.D.M) and roofs with a low slant or completely flat.

Coating a roof will be much more cost-effective than replacing the roofing features especially because metal roof can be a top-quality roofing system and last longer with a new coating. Then there are some very beautiful and stately roofing options. Owners who want to keep their aesthetics intact can choose to coat over their roof rather than replace it.

All that is needed is to prepare the roof for coating and then select between an aluminum or asphalt coating product to stop up all minor leaks keeping the roof intact. You will find that an application of the top-quality coating is also good for stopping up the minor leaks and keeping the roof in proper conditions.

Another option is the acrylic or elastomeric roof coatings we offer and these come with a warranty. You can think of this as roof coating in a can. One nice thing about this is that roof coatings do not require a building permit to apply and are therefore more cost-effective. Furthermore, you will be able to select from a variety of colors.

These options are also available for the single-ply type of roof. We will also ensure that there will be no pooling or ponds of standing water in any of the areas where roof coating is applied and a collection of water most probable.

You can actually use our top-quality coating products as a standalone roofing material. This can be done by applying the right amount of roof coating to the plywood sheathing. This is nice because a coating will never blow away. It is also very light weight so it can be applied over and old roofing system without having to reinforce the inner structures.
