Flat Roof Coatings

If you want to preserve and extend the life of your flat roof, Bulldog Builders offers a flat roof coating service for your needs. 

What Is a Flat Roof?

Flat roofs refer to roofing that is almost or completely level. While these kinds of roofs are called “flat,” they’re actually set on a slope to help them drain rainwater away on the lower end. This type of roofing is affordable and widely used in commercial buildings. Generally, the time and resources required to have a flat roof installed or replaced will be less compared to conventional roofing. 

Moreover, having a properly installed flat roof will be easier to clean and maintain, and will present significantly fewer hassles down the line. As such, it’s imperative to get a team of professionals to coat your flat roof for you. This is where our team at Bulldog Builders comes in.

What Is Flat Roof Coating?

Flat roof coatings are used to protect flat roofing structures from the elements. You won’t need to worry about any leaks or providing constant maintenance for your roof. Today’s flat roof coatings are highly resistant to sleet, rain, and snow, providing a wide range of advantages. Apart from preventing leaks, a flat roof coating can minimize repairs, boost performance, and prolong the roof’s lifespan. 

Because they come at roughly a 50% lower price compared to the usual roof replacement and removal, they’re a great way to prevent incurring roof damage. Without a roof coating, it can wear out faster, causing problems more frequently. At Bulldog Builders, we can put your mind at ease before the next storm arrives by installing a high-quality flat roof coating.

Flat Roof Coating Benefits

Apart from the advantages already mentioned above, coating flat roofs also come with various long-term benefits. Perhaps the best aspect of getting a coating for your roof is the increased lifespan that it delivers. A professionally applied coating for your roof can effectively extend the life of your roof by as much as 10 years depending on the weather conditions and the kind of roof coating applied.

Moreover, many roof coatings are environmentally friendly, offering a cost-effective way to weatherproof your whole roofing system. It acts as a protective layer that shields your roof from UV rays, while it also resists fading and absorbs less heat. When combined, the advantages that roof coatings provide mean that you won’t need to frequently replace your roof — which helps to minimize waste and reduce your home’s ecological footprint.

Moreover, industrial coatings are considered a maintenance item, so the cost is fully deductible in the tax year. Because they cost only half or a third of a full replacement, they are a more affordable option. They also provide a quick solution since there are no permits needed, so there’s no need to upgrade your building to meet building codes, saving you from spending thousands. Finally, our flat roof coatings come with a 20-year warranty, so you can trust Bulldog Builders to provide you with an expertly-done coating to last for many years to come.

Our Flat Roof Coating Materials

While the lifespan of flat roofs can be made to last longer through occasional repairs and regular maintenance, the costs related to these may not be worth it. Fortunately, our team at Bulldog Builders can provide top-notch flat roof coating to help avoid regular roof repair and replacement. Our talented and experienced roofers can quickly coat your flat roof with little to no interference in your daily activities. 

We are proud to work with brands that provide the best coating systems for the improvement of your flat roof. Our partners have been innovators in the industry for years, perfecting the process of creating environmentally friendly, affordable, and effective roof coatings. As your roofing becomes weathered by being exposed to the elements, it can leak, accumulate dirt, and crack, which diminishes its capacity to save energy and protect your home. 

At Bulldog Builders, we offer various flat roof coating solutions which include: 

  • Acrylic coatings
  • Silicone coatings
  • Polyurethane coatings
  • Rubber membrane system

Depending on your type of roofing, we can provide you with the option that best suits your needs. 

Our Flat Roof Coating Process

When you hire our team, we’ll take extra care as we install your flat roof coating. When the original coating is worn down, recoating your roof can extend its lifespan. Here’s how we’ll do the job for you: 

  1. We’ll talk to you about your needs and preferences. We’ll also inspect your roofing system to determine the best coating to use for your roof. During this step, we’ll look at the condition of your roof and check for signs of damage and wear to select the right product for your roof’s protection. 
  2. Next, we’ll wash the whole surface of the roof to give it a thorough cleaning, removing debris from surfaces with our pressure washer. We’ll also remove loose materials and then leave it to dry completely. 
  3. To ensure that the coating is applied as effectively as possible, we will fix minor damages around the roof, such as leaks. This will ensure that the coating won’t wear down quickly and can effectively serve its purpose for a long time. 
  4. It’s important to allocate at least two days for the entire roof coating process, which is why we’ll also check the weather ahead of time. This will help to make sure that the coating dries without any interference from the elements. 
  5. Once everything is set, we’ll get to work on the actual coating of your roof, filling in large cracks with patching compound. This will prevent water from accumulating. We will then leave it to dry completely before moving forward. 
  6. Now it’s time to waterproof any porous surfaces, which we will treat with an emulsion or primer, depending on the materials used on your roof. These are applied using a brush, roller, or spray equipment and are left to dry completely. 
  7. Using a sprayer at 3,000 PSI, we’ll get to work on providing an even coat throughout your roof. Our team also applies two coats to make sure that everything is sealed and coated, providing you with the peace of mind that your roof will last for years to come.
