What is Roof Coating?


If you're looking for a way to extend the life of your roof and protect it from harsh weather without having to replace it entirely, then a roof coating might be just what you need.

A roof coating is a protective layer applied to the top surface of your roof. It may be seen as a relatively simple solution, but the rewards are big. You boost your roof’s defence against the elements, minimise energy costs and drastically improve the overall appearance of your roof.

Why choose roof coating over roof replacement?


Doesn't break the bank

When you consider the price of a full roof replacement and compare this to a roof coating, there’s only one clear winner. A roof coating is ideal for those roofs that only have minor damage and need added protection. You can do this on a budget and considerably extend the life of your roof.

Weather resistant

This solution will also withstand extreme weather which is a must with our Scottish climate. We are used to so much heavy rain and strong wind that it makes perfect sense to extend the life expectancy of your roof. The coating we use is independently tested and approved by the Property Repair Association. It acts as a layer of protection against water and the build-up of dirt and debris.

Extremely durable

Our coating is renowned for its resilience and strength. It is formulated using a highly durable pure acrylic copolymer proven to be highly reliable and efficient, so you can rest assured knowing you're in safe hands.

Revitalises your roof

An application of a roof coating can dramatically enhance the aesthetics of your roof. An aged and weathered roof can be transformed to look brand new again, improving the overall look and value of your home.

Reduced energy bills

Roof coatings are known to reduce heat loss from your home. They accomplish this by reflecting sunlight and heat away rather than absorbing it. As a result, you'll rely less on your heating, potentially leading to a noticeable reduction in energy bills.

10-year guarantee

Our roof coating is backed by a comprehensive 10-year guarantee. This covers any occurrence of chalking, flaking or peeling, ensuring that your roof maintains its fresh and new appearance for an entire decade without any worries.

How do you tell if your roof needs coating?

Over time, your roof will go through a lot of wear and tear. Harsh weather conditions can cause the tiles of your roof to break down, allowing algae, moss and mould to grow in cracks and wet spots. When left unchecked, this can lead to leaks and damage to the structure of your roof, resulting in costly repairs.
