Should I Recoat My Flat Roof or Re-Roof It?

If your commercial roof is showing signs of age or disrepair, don’t ignore them! Not having a quality roofing system in place can put your building, and anything inside of it, at risk.

So, how do you know if you need to replace the entire flat roof or if you can just have it recoated? A flat roof recoat is likely to be the least expensive of the two, at least in upfront costs. Additionally, a roof recoat requires less time and generates less waste. With that said, a new roof installation could be necessary if there are structural issues with your building.

Luckily, the contractors at Mid-State Roofing in Delaware can assess the condition of your flat roof and help you determine the best solution to meet your needs and budget.

What types of roofing can be recoated?

Mid-State Roofing uses Conklin Roofing products, which are ideal for:

  • flat or low-slope roofs
  • metal roofs
  • rubber roofs
  • TPO
  • traditional BUR roofs
  • PVC
  • CSPE (Chlorosulfonate-Polyethylene)

Will a recoat stop leaks?

Yes, a recoat can provide leak protection for your existing commercial roof and extend its life. Mid-State Roofing can offer up to an 18-year warranty on commercial roof repair. We partner with Conklin to provide excellent roof systems. Conklin’s been innovating roofing products since 1977, offering waterproofing systems that also provide reflective, energy-efficient benefits.

How often should I recoat my flat roof?

Before you decide to have us recoat your flat roof, check your roof’s warranty. For instance, if your metal roof is leaking but its finish is warrantied for 25 years or more, you don’t want to recoat it before that expires. Have the original installer or supplier make good on that warrantied finish!

Conklin roof systems can endure multiple recoats to extend your building’s protective properties for years to come. You can recoat every 10 years or so to renew your roof’s reflectivity.

Conklin commercial roof systems are non-prorated and guaranteed for 18 years.

How much does it cost to recoat a flat roof?

The cost will vary depending on the size of your flat roof, its existing condition, and other variables. Typically, you can expect to pay $5-$13 per square foot. However, we offer various roof coating services and can help you find the best solution for your needs and budget.

A roof recoating costs less per square foot than the cost of materials used in roof replacement.
