Roof Coatings for Commercial Roofs
As a building owner of a commercial flat roof or metal roof system, one of the many concerns hanging over your head (literally) is the threat of a leak or roof damage.
Roof coatings can give you the peace of mind in knowing that your roof system will be protected for years to come. Coatings often avoid the costly hassle of roof replacement by providing additional protection and a decrease in energy costs.
The array of available coating options have tripled over the past 25 years. With the advancement in products, the choices have become more complicated. Here is a closer look at the four most popular coating options.
Acrylic Roof Coatings:

Pros of water-based acrylic coatings include low flammability and potential for toxicity hazards. Unlike most other coating options, acrylic materials come in a variety of colors to match your building’s color scheme.
