Roof Coating System

Cross Reference

Application rates are computed based on DFT and does not take into consideration substrate absorption, overspray loss or waste factor. Read substrate specific application specifications for more information.

Built Up or Modified Bitumen

Built up roofs require a primer to reduce asphalt bleed-through and ensure good adhesion and longevity. Granulated modified bitumen roofs may need an extra 0.5g - 1.0g/100SF to achieve the required thickness. Reinforce along the seams of mod bit roofs with 6" SeamStitch Fabric.

Concrete

Roof coatings can bridge hairline cracks in concrete roofs. Primers are usually not required but can be useful as barrier to prevent the slab from absorbing too much moisture which can cause adhesion issues.

Metal

Bare, clean metal roofs typically don't need a primer. Primers are used as an adhesion promoter for pre-finished metal roofs that are chalky. Rusted metal roofs need a rust primer or rust converter depending on the severity. Kynar-coated metal roofs require special primers and preparation procedures to ensure adhesion. We currently don't have a specification for Kynar roofs.

Spray Foam

Badly weathered and deteriorated spray foam must be scarified and repaired before it can be coated. Spray foam roofs with acrylic coatings may be restored with any of our systems below. Silicone coated roofs can only be recoated with silicone.
