Whereas most residential buildings have steep-sloped roofs designed to direct water away from the top of the home, commercial properties frequently have flat roofs which can be vulnerable to water pooling when left untreated. Although the name can lead people to think these roofs are completely flat, flat roofs actually have very low slopes, which is why they’re sometimes called low-sloped roofing systems.
Due to their low slopes, commercial roofers typically coat flat roofs with liquid-applied membranes that are waterproof or highly water resistant. A properly applied roof coating can add decades to your roof’s lifespan. Certain roof coatings can also be applied to metal roofs to protect them from water damage. In general, roof coating is a cost-efficient way to extend the life of your flat roof and prevent leakage, keeping your business open and saving you time and money.

There are many materials that can be used for roof coating, and each has its benefits and drawbacks. In addition to resisting water, many roof coatings are extremely effective at reflecting UV rays, earning them high ENERGY STAR ratings. These coatings can strengthen the insulation of your property and increase its energy efficiency. Roof coatings also vary in price and their ability to resist wind, fire damage, punctures, and chemical solvents. Some roof coatings require multiple applications to be effective but others, like silicone, are effective after only one.
For flat roofs, commercial roofers may offer any of the following roof coating services:
- Acrylic roof coatings
- Aluminum roof coatings
- Asphalt roof coatings
- Bituminous roof coatings
- Butyl roof coatings
- Cool roof coatings
- Elastomeric roof coatings
- Reflective roof coatings
- Rubber roof coatings
