Professional roofers applying a roof coating in Gaithersburg's commercial building

Roof coatings are polymer-based liquid compounds that are either rolled or sprayed directly onto your existing roof. The idea is to extend the life of your existing roof without replacing it. It adds a layer of protection against light, water, and other elements. Roof coating is a great way to prevent cracks, corrosion, and other damage while delaying a roof replacement until you’re ready. At BRAX Roofing, we provide leading commercial roof coating services in Gaithersburg and surrounds.

That You Can Trust

Why Choose Roof Coating Over Replacement

It costs a great deal to entirely replace a commercial roof, and if you have a large building, the cost only increases. If you know your roof is weakening or reaching the end of its life, but you simply don’t have the finances right now, it may be time to consider a roof coating solution. This is one of the most affordable and effective ways to prolong your commercial roof’s life.
What you may not realize is the roof coating can help you save money on your HVAC bills. In addition to giving your roof a longer life, these coatings can help insulate your building and maintain consistent temperatures, so your heating and cooling systems don’t have to work so hard.

The Advantage of Roof Coatings

BRAX Roofing strongly recommends considering roof coating for commercial properties. It’s a simple way to unlock the full potential of your commercial roof, regardless of its existing material. These are just a few its advantages:

  • Significantly extends the life of the roof, by up to 10-20 years.
  • Enables business owners to avoid the immediate costly expense of a full roof replacement.
  • Provides an additional barrier against bad weather.
  • Saves a large percentage on HVAC energy expenses.
  • Qualifies your business for tax rebates.
  • Minimizes maintenance costs over time.

BRAX Roofing’s Roof Coating Process

We’ll start the process with our initial free roof inspection and analysis. Our process then consists of three separate steps before the job is completed:

  • A thorough clean of the roof to ensure a smooth coating finish.
  • Coating is applied, with the type determined by your current roofing material.
  • Review of the finished product and discussion of maintenance options.
  • You provide us with your feedback so we are 100% sure that you’re satisfied with the job, as is the case with all our commercial roofing projects.

BRAX Roofing specialize in roof coating installation from a wide range of commercial roof types from flat roofing to TPO roofs.

Types of Coatings That Can Be Applied

There are a variety of commercial roof coating solutions, but what you choose will depend on your current roof material. Some roof types require multiple layers of coating while others can be applied directly to the surface of your roof. It is important to discuss these beforehand with your roofing contractor.

BRAX Roofing offers various roof coating services from flat, rubber to urethane.

ASPHALT

Asphalt-based roof coatings use a solvent to make them thinner and easier to apply to a roof without heavy equipment. It can be brushed or sprayed on, and it works best on metal roofs, built-up roofs, and membrane roofs.

ACRYLIC

Acrylic or elastomeric coatings are highly reflective and help prevent rust. It’s strong but flexible, making these acrylic coatings ideal for metal roofing because they will expand and contract with the metal. These coatings are easy to apply via a spray nozzle, making the process quicker and less labor-intensive. It’s also cost-effective, suitable for most climates, and provides the best value.

RUBBERIZED ALUMINUM

A rubber aluminum coating reflects heat and is incredibly resilient to impact. It doesn’t damage easily and can be used on built-up roofs, single ply roofs, spray polyurethane foam, and modified bitumen roofs.

POLYUREAS

Polyureas take many forms. These roof coatings provide abrasion resistance, corrosion protection, structural enhancement, chemical resistance, and waterproofing features. Polyureas are common on metal roofs, built-up roofs, single ply roofs, foam, and modified bitumen roofs.

URETHANES

A urethane roof coating is ideal for high traffic areas because it’s flexible, seamless, and durable. It can expand and contract with your roof structure. Moreover, urethanes resist water pooling, and they are more impact-resistant than many other types of coatings.

POLYURETHANES

Where urethanes are flexible, polyurethanes are stiff and rigid. Polyurethane roof coatings are impact-resistant and can handle a good amount of traffic. They are available in two variations – aromatic or aliphatic polyurethane, each with their respective merits.

SILICONE

Silicone roof coatings protect against leaking and are ultra-sustainable. They’re easy to apply, and because they’re not water-based, they are highly water resistant by nature. A silicone roof coating can withstand ponding water and easily last 10-15 years. However, silicone is not the best choice for heavy traffic because it can be very slippery when wet.

GRANULES

Granules can be added to many roof coating systems to increase the coating’s resistance to impact and abrasion. It can also improve its safety by creating a non-slip surface. It’s ideal for commercial buildings that have a high amount of roof activity and can be used on asphalt shingles, modified bitumen roofs, and single-ply roofs.

What Our Clients Are Saying

BRAX roofing is one of the best companies I've ever had work on my house. Once we set up a time for someone to inspect the job, the person came on time, explained everything and answered my questions. When I reviewed the proposal, I had several questions which were answered promptly by phone or email. A few days before the scheduled installation of my new roof, they brought cones so I could block 2 parking spots in front of my house. On the scheduled date, they came on time, completed the job and cleaned up outside all around the house. I definitely recommend them.
Kay G.
From start to finish the experience was great. Damon came promptly for the initial inspection. There was good communication as we picked out the roof shingles. On installation day the brave men arrived early and worked hard all day in the hot sun, finishing before sunset. They cleaned up all around the house, and it looks like they were never here. Our new roof is amazing, and really adds value to the house. Very professional, highly recommend.
Kenny F.
I couldn’t be happier with my experience with BRAX Roofing. I hired them to replace the entire roof on my house. The sales representative I worked with went above and beyond in helping me through the process of selecting the best materials and ensuring my satisfaction with the work. Everyone on the team that I was in contact with was knowledgeable, professional and courteous. The job was completed in one day without any issues or hassles and the entire site was cleaned up before they left. Our roof looks great. Based on this experience, I would highly recommend BRAX Roofing to anyone that has any roofing needs!
Jonathan B.
These guys are fantastic! Couldn't ask for better customer service. Very responsive. Very attentive. They were on time. They did everything they said they would do. The follow-up was tremendous and the work was impeccable! Kudos to Mr. Souza, Mr. Rodriguez and Mr. Cardenas for great planning, execution and follow-up. I would recommend BRAX to any one need roof repair.
Keith N.
From beginning to end, BRAX did a great job. Very good paperwork (easy to read/understand and detailed) and the salesperson did an outstanding job keeping up with an ever changing insurance issue. The roof was a challenge as the home is a 4 story townhouse so needed 60-foot ladders. BRAX was easily up to that challenge. I was most surprised by the gift sent after all work was completed.
Mike H.
I had my siding replaced by BRAX Roofing this summer. I highly recommend this company. They sent someone out quickly for a free estimate, they worked with my homeowners insurance to get everything approved. I’m really happy with the end result and they worked with me on some hiccups along the way. Their customer service is really exceptional, everyone I dealt with at all times was fair and extremely polite.
