Elastomeric Roof Coatings
Thinking of replacing your roof? Before you commit to a stressful and costly roof replacement, consider an elastomeric roof coating system from Conklin®. These systems can add years of extended lifespan to your existing roof, making it look and perform like new.
Commonly used to protect flat or low-sloped roofs, elastomeric coatings form a water-resistant barrier over an existing roof. In addition to safeguarding the roof against water, wind and other damage, these systems require reduced maintenance and can significantly reduce energy costs.

A Closer Look at Elastomeric Coating Systems
A liquid-applied system, elastomeric coatings are sprayed on. When dry, the result is a white, seamless membrane which has firmly cohered to the roof’s substrate. This protective layer is strong yet pliable.
In the summer, it expands in the heat of the day and contracts in the coolness of the night. In the winter time, the elastomeric coating maintains its original size. By adapting to shifts in temperature, elastomeric coatings are less susceptible to serious problems such as bubbles, cracks, and buckling.
Will my old roof be removed?
It may not be necessary. If the existing roof is structurally sound, the coating system can be applied directly over the old roof. Compared to a re-roofing project, elastomeric coatings can save customers considerable time and money.
Will an elastomeric coating add dead weight to my roof?
Yes, any material will add dead weight. But unlike other materials, elastomeric coatings will add little extra roof load, which helps guard against compromising your building’s structural integrity.
Is Conklin a reputable company?
Since 1977, Conklin has been a roofing manufacturer leader. With over 2 billion square feet of roofing materials applied across America, Conklin is a respected name among professional contractors. All Conklin products are backed by a non-prorated warranty.
Can I get a tax break with this roofing system?
Yes. These coatings are ENERGY STAR® certified, so your roof may qualify for tax breaks and credits.
How long have elastomeric roof coatings been around?
Developed in the 1970s, elastomeric roof coatings were designed to expand and contract with changing temperatures. For almost 40 years, customers have benefitted from this cutting-edge roofing technology. This expansion and contraction abilities enable an elastomeric coating system to resist ruptures or cracking.
What about building codes? Is a coating considered an additional layer?
In most cases, elastomeric coatings do not count as an added layer. Projects are kept to code because the existing roof is being restored and not replaced.
Are these coating systems really money saving?
Yes. Here’s how:
- You can forego pricey roof replacement.
- The application process will pose minimal disruptions to your business operations.
- The coating’s reflective surface keeps your building cooler which lowers A/C costs.
- You may be eligible for tax write-offs.
