Flat roof coatings transform your existing roof into “cool roofing”. It is a clean and contemporary white color, which makes it reflective – that means 4/5ths of the sun’s energy is reflected away from the surface. What it means to you is that heat is not passed through the roof to the space below, so your air conditioning costs can drop by 15-30%! The roof immediately begins to “pay you back”. Some customers report coatings paid for themselves in as little as 7 years.
We like to say that “white is the new green”
Green building materials are energy efficient and earth-friendly. Most flat roofs are hot. For example, say you have an EPDM dark roof. It barely reflects away six percent of solar heat energy. Think of how hard your air conditioning has to work! Consider how much longer it will last if it’s not overloaded. Coatings save you even more money by giving longer life to your HVAC system.
There is a coating for most flat roof materials.
If your flat roof is asphalt — coatings adhere exceptionally well to asphalt, eliminating the invariable rounds of leak, then fix, leak again and fix again. Asphalt roof prices have soared, making roof replacement more costly than some coatings. Roll asphalt generally only lasts 10 years but you can add up to 20 years to that with the professional application of an acrylic membrane to the existing surface. Uncoated roll asphalt is a “hot roof” that attracts and holds in heat.
EPDM and rubber — So-called “inner tube” roofs require specially-engineered flat roof coatings that will stick. Most often rubber is black and notoriously hot. Our “reflective” coatings can cut cooling costs by 20% immediately.
Metal — The process of applying a coating begins with rust removal. Then a rust-proofing product is applied; seams and screws get sealed, and then the base and top coats go on. The appearance is brand new.
The savings just keep multiplying.
You eliminate the cost of endless leak repair on your current flat roof. The roof keeps paying for itself. You eliminate the upfront cost of “tear off” of your old roof. Removal of your existing roof could cost up to a dollar per square foot – that is an additional savings that contributes to the roof payback. Installation is efficient and far faster than traditional roof replacement. You save labor costs.
We represent the quality products of Conklin® Roof Coating Systems, the foremost maker of roof coatings. They believe that highly reflective, or “cool” roofs, are having their day. Conklin roofing systems have been proven to be energy efficient in some very intense situations and under intense scrutiny. Independent studies have shown that Conklin Roofing Systems meet the very highest standards. The manufacturer is proud to be an ENERGY STAR Products Partner whose white roof systems meet the EPA energy-efficiency guidelines. We are proud to be Delmarva’s dedicated provider of “green” roofing.
Flat roof coatings provide immediate energy cost savings while adding years of roof life to your commercial, industrial or agricultural building. Your flat roof is practical. But it is flat. So water forms ponds; this causes decay, cracks and leaks. Engineers and chemists figured out what to do: coat and seal the roof with an acrylic polymer that dries to form a seamless membrane. The benefits are:
Because money is tight, this is an outstanding solution for commercial and industrial building owners who are deferring new construction in favor of maintaining existing structures. You can add as many as 20 years of useful life. Flat roof coatings are engineered for most flat and low-slope roofs. We exclusively offer the industry-standard products of Conklin® Roofing Systems.
You get a durable roof that can pay for itself
Add it all up, and you can see how some Conklin customers report flat roof coatings paid for themselves in as little as 7 years.
All of your options are reflective energy savers:
Metal roof coatings stop leaks, eliminate rust, and turn hot metal into a cool roof. Your roof lasts longer because the coating maintains integrity for so long.
Elastomeric systems are virtually weather-proof. They are “elastic”. In heat the coating stretches then it cools back to its original size. Elastomeric flat roof coatings stay put in strong wind.
Single ply systems are a straightforward solution: flexible sheets of synthetic rubber are unrolled, fastened and sealed to your existing roof.
Polyurethane foam roofing is virtually leak-proof. Because it has no seams, there is no way water gets through. It has 85% reflectivity.
Rubber roof coatings are seamless – applied to the rubber that we rehabilitate first – resulting in years of worry-free protection.
Reinforced ply systems are a four-ply watertight membrane, made extra tough with a layer of embedded fabric.
