A roof coating reflects up to 90% of the sun’s heat, can absorb harmful UV rays, and correct roof leaks. Coating your roof can also cost less than half of what it would cost to get a roof repair or replacement.
Many roofs, especially old roofs, come in dark colors that can become overheated during the summer months. You as a property owner, you should not have to think about or pay the exorbitant cost associated with an extremely hot roof.
Using reflective materials such as a white silicone roof coating can dramatically reduce the heat applied to your roof. Not only will it reduce your costs, but it will also waterproof your roof and give you, on average, 7 points towards your LEED certification.
Roof Coating Savings
The energy savings received from coating your roof can be substantial. National Roofing Contractors Association and Oak Ridge National Laboratory offer a roof savings calculator based on your geographic location, insulation, and cost of electricity.
A silicone roof coating in Denver with a roof covering 100,000 square feet could save you close to $5,000 annually. The larger the roof, the larger the savings.

The online estimate is just that, an estimate. Denver-area municipality codes dramatically increased the amount of necessary insulation for a re-roof and the online estimate does not take this into account.

Another benefit is preventing or correcting, roof leaks. When water finds its way into your building, the damage can be catastrophic. Sometimes it can be as simple as a roof repair, but more often an entire roof replacement is necessary.
Water is not the only offender when it comes to roof leaks. When air finds a way through your roof, energy costs can go up. The American Society for Testing and Materials has developed a new method for quantifying air leakage in roofs.
Before you get a nasty roof leak, we recommend you coat your roof to stay protected and extend the roof’s life.
Roof Coating Types
Acrylic Roof Coating
Acrylic roof coatings are known for their strength and durability. Plexiglass also uses an all-acrylic base and has earned respect for its impact resistance and UV resistance. Here are some of the benefits of using an acrylic roof coating:
- Seamless application and highly-effective adhesion. The coating adheres in a thick layer of up to 30 mils that narrows in on most single-ply roofing membranes.
- Dirt resistance. Acrylic coating resists dirt from sticking to its surface and that keeps your roof looking new.
- High sun-reflectivity. With a variety of acrylic color options, the sun loses its strength as it hits the roof coating and keeps your building cool and comfortable.
We are well versed in acrylic roof coating and have used Tremco products as one of our go-to manufacturers for roof coatings.
The cost-effectiveness of an acrylic roof coating makes it a quick and easy solution for many styles of roofs. It is versatile and can cover most low-slope and steep-slope roofs.
Silicone Roof Coating
A popular option for coating your roof is a silicone roof coating. It is flexible, cost-effective, and extremely heat reflective.
- A silicone roof coating can cover many existing roof systems. It can be used on TPO, PVC, EPDM, Modified Bitumen, standing seam metal, and plenty more.
- The coating is flexible enough to withstand thermal shock, meaning it can handle the expansion and contraction that comes with hot and cold temperatures. This is an essential quality for roof coatings in Denver.
- At half the cost of a roof replacement, a silicone roof coating is a cost-effective way to protect your roof and extend its life.
The heat reflection properties of a silicone roof coating are phenomenal. Compared to a typical black bitumen roof system, a silicone coating can reduce heat absorption by 90%. When the desert heat settles into Denver, you’ll be thankful you coated your roof in silicone.
There is no better way to protect your most valuable investment. A roof coating is quick and effective.
Normal building codes apply for roof coatings. Modern Roof Co adheres to the International Code Council (ICC) as well as all local, state, and federal code enforcement. Don’t settle for anything less.
