Coatings For Flat Roofs
If you’re a business owner seeking to protect and preserve your buildings or real estate investments, commercial roof coatings may be an option you should consider. It’s a great alternative to a full roof replacement.

The Purpose of Commercial Roof Coatings
All things considered, the primary motive behind commercial roof coatings is to improve the effectiveness of your current roof and to extend its overall lifespan. A new roof coating can protect your business’s roof from potential leaks, thanks to a seamless, “monolithic structure” and powerful self adhesive properties. Roof coatings also feature flashing capability, which basically means that installation only requires a single membrane application. There are no special features or additional hardware required for pipes and joints.
A roof coating can enable a business to address concerns about an aging roof by extending its viability without the full cost of a traditional replacement.

Roof Coatings Pros And Cons
Silicone Roof Coatings Pros And Cons
Making the decision to move forward with a commercial roof coating as opposed to a full roof replacement becomes easier as you consider the benefits. At Big Anchor Roofing & Gutters, we can help you navigate the pros and cons. Here are a few of the key benefits you can expect with a roof coating application:
An essential benefit of commercial roof coatings is that they virtually eliminate the potential for leaks. The liquid application allows the substrate to penetrate every nook and cranny of your roof structure, for an airtight seal. Of course, no roofing solution is full proof against the occasional leak, but roof coatings insure that they are exceptionally rare and easy to repair.
The final coating used in Big Anchor’s application is a bright white, by design. This insures that your commercial roof coating has maximum reflective qualities, to help keep the sun’s heat out of your building. Roof coatings can reflect up to 80-90% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. This keeps your bottom line lower, as it requires less cooling costs inside during the summer months.
Another benefit of roof coatings is their longevity. The standard silicone top coat that we apply won’t degrade, chalk, or crack over time from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Erosion is much slower when compared to other elastomeric coatings, and it avoids becoming brittle or hard.
Flexibility & Weatherability
Ease Of Installation
The silicone top coat used in our process tends to attract dirt and other airborne particles. Over time, this attraction can accumulate and ultimately impact the roof coating’s reflective property. As you might imagine, that impacts the roof coating’s susceptibility to heat from the sun – and correspondingly – your cooling bill.
As a result, we recommend pressure washing a roof coating system every 6-12 months after installation. This typically eliminates the problem of dirt and debris accumulation and preserves the reflective advantages of roof coating.
Slippery When Wet
The silicone topcoat used in our process can make surfaces very slippery. If your business structure is one that might require a decent amount of foot traffic on the roof, the slip factor can be mitigated with a “Walk-Path System” that clearly marks areas designated for pedestrian traffic. We can talk through these kinds of roof coating concerns when we evaluate your particular building’s needs.

Commercial Roof Coating Maintenance
COMMERCIAL ROOF COATINGS
One of the primary appeals of commercial roof coatings is that maintenance is incredibly easy and straight-forward. Essentially, if a problem develops (in the form of a leak), you simply identify the site, clean the immediate area, and then add more coating to reseal any holes or gaps. This requires minimal disruption to your daily business.
Commercial Roof Coating Recoating
Addressing a roof coating that has run its course (with respect to functional lifetime) is almost as straight-forward as maintenance. If your roof coating is overdue for replacement, a simple recoating adds an additional 10, 15, or even 20 years of additional effectiveness. This doesn’t require a removal of the original roof coating, It just involves a thorough power washing, followed by a fresh new coating. For a fraction of the cost of a new roof, you can add up to an additional 20 years of protection.
