Commercial Roof Coatings

Roof coatings are a quick, cost-effective way to restore and waterproof your existing roof installation, and they protect your roof from more than just water.

What are Roof Coatings?

Roof coatings are liquefied polymers applied to protect and extend the life of a roof system. They are often used to prevent water intrusion when other solutions may interrupt normal business operations. Similar to SPF roof systems, they can be used on odd-shaped roofs and in hard-to-reach areas. This method allows you to restore your roof, postpone a costly replacement and address various roofing concerns.

Types of Commercial Roof Coatings

Silicones

Durable, reliable and easy to apply. Silicone commercial roof coatings are a premium waterproofing product with UV, bio growth and fire resistance. They are fast-drying and can be used in humid environments. Silicone coatings are very flexible and will comply with your roof's expansion and contraction during temperature shifts.

Urethanes

Versatile and highly resistant to chemicals, impact and abrasion. They are ideal for harsh environments or manufacturing processes involving chemicals. Urethane coatings can be used on vertical and horizontal primed concrete, steel, iron, wood, fiberglass and polyurethane foam surfaces.

Adhered

These types of commercial roof coatings are highly reflective and will protect your roof from UV damage while cutting your energy bills. These coatings can be applied to bitumen-based roofs and certain metal roof applications.

Acrylics

Acrylic roof coatings cure to form a durable, continuous elastomeric membrane over the surface of your roof. Once applied, they form a seamless, watertight seal over the entire roof, including around vents, flashings and projections. Our CentiSeal product is a self-flashing, lightweight acrylic roof coating that provides a continuous membrane while sealing seams and eliminating leaks. This coating is energy efficient and environmentally friendly, as well as being highly reflective and contains no VOCs. Durable with excellent weathering capabilities, this advanced liquid-applied system restores roofs and can eliminate minor roof problems. Advanced acrylic coatings may also contain a biocide that prevents algae and mildew growth.

Fluoropolymers

Are known for their reflectivity, weather resistance, color stability, algae resistance and tough, enamel-like finish. This translates into potential savings in energy bills and minimal maintenance costs to property owners.

Roof Coating Installation Process

A properly applied commercial roof coating will keep your roof watertight for years. But what is "properly applied"? The prep work includes a thorough roof cleaning to ensure maximum adhesion and air-tight results. Roof coatings will be able to seal all cracks and imperfections on your roof, but any debris or dirt blocking that access needs to be removed. Once your roof is ready, the coating of your choice will be applied using spray or roll methods. Drying time will depend on the exact compound formula, but generally, you want to wait 24 hours before walking on your roof.

CentiMark's Roof Coating Projects

Grand Junction, CO

Grand Junction Tech Center was experiencing problems with its roof. The roof already had two layers of existing roofing, and Grand Junction Tech Center was looking for another option instead of a full roof replacement. CentiMark created a solution for the customer where a replacement wasn't needed. Instead, CentiMark pressure washed and primed the roof, then wrapped all penetrations with 12" Roofmate fabric and applied a Unisil HS silicone with a three-course application. Then the CentiMark team addressed all seams with 4" fabric and finally installed a single coat of GAF white Unisil High Solid Silicone coating.

Before: EPDM fastened roof with 1" ISO and 5 ply Asphalt

After: 12" Roofmate fabric with a coating of GAF white Unisil High Solid Silicone coating
