Concrete slabs have a tendency to crack due to settlement, thermal contraction or structural inadequacy. Unlike other roofing types, concrete roof leaks need to be fixed.
Concrete roofs need a breathable coating that can withstand ponding water. We use silicone roof coatings on a majority of our concrete roof coating jobs.
EnergyGuard Aromatic Polyurethane is a high VOC product and cannot be shipped to California. Use PrimeLock Epoxy Primer and EnergyMax Silicone Coating instead.

Longevity of a roof coating system depends on the coating chemistry, installation integrity and maintenance. All our 30 dry mil systems are eligible for a 10 year warranty when installed by an approved contractor. We can do this because we are confident that it will last longer than that.
It depends on the size and condition of your roof. A small, simple roof may qualify as a weekend job for a building owner. A large roof that leaks and needs repairs should definitely be restored by a roof coating contractor.
Solvent-based, silver polyurethane roof coating with 300% elongation and 70% solids. Base coat and primer in one for flat roofs.
Solvent-based, silicone roof coating with 267% elongation and 69% solids. Stands up to permanent ponding water conditions.
Solvent-based, silicone roof coating with 190% elongation and 97% solids. Stands up to long-term ponding water conditions. California VOC Compliant.
Elastomeric coatings are usually applied 20 to 30 mils thick. This is why a contractor's quote should specify an application rate and not just say "2 coats".
Water-based, two component epoxy primer provides superior anchorage of silicone roof coatings on difficult substrates.
Badly deteriorated EPDM roof was leaking everywhere. They were able to fix all the leaks with just one coat of EnergyGuard Aromatic Polyurethane.
This newly constructed 18,800sf building at the Andersen AFB in Guam has a concrete roof primed with PrimeLock Epoxy Primer and coated with 45 dry mils of EnergyMax Silicone Coating to keep it cool and leak-free.
