What Does a Commercial Roof Coating Do?
The purpose of a commercial roof coating is to protect a commercial roof while extending its lifespan. It is considered a monolithic structure, that contains elastic properties that can stretch to cover an entire roof. With commercial roof coatings, our roofers are able to spray or roll on this type of material onto your current commercial roof material. The material of a roof coating is a lot thicker than your average paint and can provide excellent protection against leaks, UV rays, severe weather, and other outside elements. Not only can it protect your roof against leaks and punctures, but it can also provide better cooling for your building, which in turn provides energy savings. If you are interested in commercial roof coatings for your Dallas, TX commercial property, contact our office today.
The Benefits of Commercial Roof Coatings
When considering a new roof material for your commercial roof, you need to take their characteristics and traits into consideration. Commercial roof coatings have some of the best benefits that every commercial property owner will love.
- Seamless: So what is the benefit of having a seamless roof? Traditional commercial roofs have seams, which are more prone to leaks and are easier for the wind to blow off. Roof coatings are monolithic, meaning they don’t have seams, so when a roof coating is applied to a roof, it is able to adhere to places like vents and pipes that are more susceptible to leaks and heat loss.
- Energy-Efficient: We touched on this a little bit, but the reason a commercial roof coating is considered energy-efficient is that the coating is reflective. When the sun’s UV rays beam down on the roof, it usually absorbs those rays, which can cause damages to the roof, as well as increase cooling bills. Because roof coatings are reflective, it reflects the UV rays off the roof, therefore reducing roof damages and cooling costs.
- Eco-Friendly: A commercial roof coating lasts for up to ten years and once it’s reached that mark, it can be reapplied. Not only that when you reuse this material again, but you are also reducing landfill waste that is most common with other types of commercial roof materials.
- Cost-Effective: This is one of the easiest roofing systems to install because all our roofers have to do is apply the coating onto your existing commercial roof. We are able to save time and money, by not only keeping your current roof on but by having an option that provides fast installation.

Flat Roof Coatings
Flat Roof Coating Service
The biggest problems that flat roofs face are leaks, roof blow-offs, and water ponding. Due to roof seams, lack of maintenance, or improper installation, these problems can happen more often than we would like. The best way to combat these issues and extend the life of our flat roofing systems is getting a flat roof coating in Dallas, TX. With a flat roof coating for your flat roof, we are able to combat leaks, water ponding, and roof blow-offs. This is because a roof coating is seamless, so we are able to remedy these issues and prevent them from happening again.

Silicone and elastomeric roof coatings are the most popular for flat roof coatings, so depending on the current roof material your roof has will depend on what commercial roof coating we use.
Metal Roof Coatings
Metal Roof Coating Service
While metal roofs are one of the most durable commercial roofing systems in the industry, they are still prone to damages. This really happens when roof maintenance is not completed biannually. In order for a metal roof to continue to perform the way it should, it needs regular maintenance. Unfortunately, roof maintenance can fall to the wayside, and in turn cause issues like leaks, blow-offs, roof punctures, standing water, and even rust. Instead of replacing the whole metal roof, the best option would be to get a metal roof coating in Dallas, TX. With a metal roof coating for your commercial property, you are able to prevent the issues mentioned above, as well as extend the life of your roofing system. Not only that you can also save on energy savings and on a complete roof replacement. Whether you have a steel roof or aluminum roof, Mullins General Construction has quality roof coatings to get your metal roof back in great condition. The most popular roof coatings for a metal roof are silicone and elastomeric, so we will choose the coating based on what kind of commercial metal roof you have.
