What are Roof Coatings?
Roof coatings are liquefied polymers applied to protect and extend the life of a roof system.
Benefits of Roof Coatings
Preserve and extend the life of your roof.
Along with preserving and extending the life of your roof, coatings can provide a highly reflective surface that may help reduce energy costs by lowering the surface temperature of the roof. Additionally, coatings provide a seamless application that conforms to irregular roof surfaces, as well as seals cracks and splits in the roof surface. Coatings can be applied to address a variety of roofing concerns. When choosing a coating, it is important to consider the location and current condition of the roof, as well as ponding water, chemical exposure, high heat and UV radiation.
Types of Commercial Roof Coatings
Silicone Roof Coatings
Silicone roof coatings have been designed with the customer in mind - to be durable, reliable and easy to apply. These coatings provide you with the opportunity to get your roof back to being watertight, while extending the service life of your roof. This means you can maximize your investment, increase energy efficiency and improve the safety of your roof without having to do a full roof replacement. Silicone provides the ability to delay the need for a time-consuming replacement so you can continue to focus on what matters most - running your business.
CentiSeal: CentiMark’s Acrylic Roof Coating
Acrylic roof coatings cure to form a durable, continuous elastomeric membrane over the surface of your metal roof. Once applied, they form a seamless, watertight seal over the entire roof; including around vents, flashings and protrusions. 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 metal roofs and can eliminate minor metal roof problems.
Other Roof Coatings
Aluminum coatings can be applied to bitumen based roofs and certain metal roof applications. Bitumen based roofs can be re-saturated and copolymer coatings can be applied to single ply and metal roofs.

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 was able to create 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. The result was a like-new roof with a durable solution that met the customer’s wants and needs.
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
