Roof Coating Services in St. Petersburg

Save Money with Roof Coatings By Carlson's Proficient Painting

It is undeniable. It is impossible to run a successful business if it has a leaky roof. Commercial property owners in and around the area, invest thousands of dollars into the correct roofing system. Protect your investment with roof coatings from the experts at Carlson's Proficient Painting.

Unfortunately, many business owners in St. Petersburg do not realize the importance of maintaining the roof of their commercial building until problems occur. Your roof protects products and customers from sun exposure, weather variations and water damage. Left without an appropriate coating, your roof will start to leak. Roof coatings from Carlson's Proficient Painting can help extend the life of your investment and protect your business from St. Petersburg area weather.

Coating your roof correctly involves repairing, patching and coating. Our roofing coating service includes restoring and weatherproofing your roofing system to handle the toughest of weather conditions. When applied correctly, roof coatings will add years to the life of your roof.

The Cost Benefit of Roof Coating

Save time and money with the benefits of roof coating. A professionally installed coating system can pay for itself in the first year versus amortizing the cost of a new roof over 10 years. When you extend the life of your roof you also help to keep roofing materials out of landfills.

A commercial roof coated with a highly reflective finish can also help reduce overall energy cost. By keeping the cool air in and hot air out, highly reflective roof coatings deliver a cooler and more comfortable environment inside the building. Because roof coatings go directly on top of your existing roof, the entire installation takes less time. Roof coating services rarely interrupt anybody who may be working in the building.

Benefits of an Elastomeric Roof Coating

Elastomeric roof coatings are known for their exceptional durability and versatility. This type of coating can significantly extend the life of your roof by providing a protective barrier that resists weathering, UV radiation, and temperature extremes.

It is highly reflective, which helps reduce cooling costs by reflecting heat away from your building, making it more energy-efficient. Additionally, elastomeric coatings are flexible, allowing them to expand and contract with the roof during temperature changes, which prevents cracks and other damage.

Choose From Three Types of Roof Coatings

At Carlson's Proficient Painting, we offer expertise in three primary types of roof coatings: Acrylic, Elastomeric, and Silicone, each suited for different roofing needs and environmental conditions.

Acrylic Roof Coatings

Acrylic roof coatings are ideal for mild climates and are known for their durability and cost-effectiveness. They provide excellent weather resistance against the elements typical of Brick's climate. These coatings are also highly reflective and UV-resistant, which helps in reducing cooling costs by reflecting solar heat away from the building.

Elastomeric Roof Coatings

Elastomeric roof coatings are a cost-effective solution that offers robust weather resistance across diverse conditions. These coatings provide significant reflectivity and UV protection, enhancing their durability and efficiency. When combined with other coating types, elastomeric coatings achieve superior durability, making them an excellent choice for long-term protection.

Silicone Roof Coatings

Silicone roof coatings excel in moisture control, effectively preventing water damage without the need for a primer. However, they typically offer less reflectivity compared to other coatings, which might not make them the best option for those primarily looking to reduce energy costs through high solar reflectance.

Roof Coating FAQs


Why Should I Get My Roof Coated with a Reflective Coating?

Reflective roof coatings are most commonly used on commercial roofs. Reflective coatings for roofs save money on heating and cooling costs. They also create a protective barrier that makes your roof last longer.

Reflective coatings shield the roof from UV rays (which cause chemical breakdowns) and help minimize erosion caused by the weather. The most common types of roof coatings are silicone, elastomeric and aluminum.

Can You Recoat a Roof?

Yes, most coating systems are renewable and sustainable, but you should check the manufacturer's recommendations.

How Do You Apply a Roof Coating?

The method depends on the type of coating, but it can be brushed, sprayed, or rolled on. For best results, spray the coating, but roll the outside edge to avoid over-spraying.

When Should You Apply a Coating?

For thermoplastic rubber, the surface should be clean and dry, and the temperature should be 5?F above the dew point. For best spray results, the temperature should be between 70-90?F.

Testimonials

  • reviewiconWe would give Carlson's 20 stars if possible!
    Eric and his crew were a pleasure to work with. He scheduled a day/time to come review the job. He was right on time! He kept in communication with his quote which was extremely reasonable, the timing of the job, and what we wanted for paint colors, etc. He uses high quality Sherwin Williams paint. On the first day of the job, he arrived with his crew, Eddie, Kurt and Mark to review the job with them. The guys were very professional, friendly, and paid attention to all the details. They cleaned up at the end of the day before leaving. They did an amazing job painting our condo. It looks brand new and we have had fun showing our neighbors and passing the word that they need to call Carlson's for their painting needs. (We live in a 55+ complex). We highly recommend Carlson's Proficient Painting. Thank you Eric and crew!!

    Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Negative: None Carlson's is not just Proficient, they're also Professional, Punctual and Personable, and, well, all around good guys. After getting multiple bids to paint our two-story house, we selected Eric and his crew. Not only did they offer one of the best prices, but they also provided the most detailed quote, as well as the most in-depth bid package from Sherwin Williams (which explained every step of the prep, repairing, sealing and painting process). It's obvious Eric truly cares about his work (and so does his crew). He's a man of his word, and won't stop until he gets it right. Integrity is a hard thing to find nowadays; Eric has it. We'll be using him again, and referring him to friends. We've had so many compliments on the job Carlson's did; heck, half the neighborhood wants him to do their houses!

    Mr. Carlson WAS ON TIME EVERY TIME!!! On our first meeting everything was explained, the time line the painting process the quality of the paint he would use and the equipment he would be using. Mr. Carlson also took the time to explain to my neighbors what he was going to do and any impact it would have on there property (there was none). The painting of my house meet all my expectations and more. No over spray on my plaints or grass, the cleanup process was undetectable! Mr. Carlson also painted my Aunts house with the same professional results. Job Well Done!

    If I could give Eric and Carlson's Proficient Painting SIX stars, I would. Reasonable prices, super efficient. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the results! Also, initially there was a little miscommunication about the color paint we wanted and he had already ordered the paint. However, he was super understanding and ate the costs of the other paint and ordered the paint we actually wanted without hesitation! He and his crew came back several times to do touch-ups to make it looks absolutely perfect. If you want a HIGH PROFESSIONAL QUALITY paint job at budget prices, Eric at Carlson's is your man!!
