Flat roofs can be demanding for roof coatings due to the potential standing water, the year round temperature changes and UV degradation. Due to these constant exposures to water and UV rays, it is vital that your flat roof is properly maintained with durable paints and coatings. At Rawlins Paints, we stock a range of tough, quality coatings that have been specifically designed for flat roofs. Whether you are looking for products to provide essential maintenance to your roof or you need a high performance coating for a new roof, we cover all these bases. If you are ever in doubt, contact our Technical Team for advice on which roof paint will be best for your project.
When applied correctly, our products can provide up to 25 years of protection. Our products are suitable for a range of roofing materials, including felt, concrete, timber, asphalt and more. Our range of flat roof paints do not involve any hot works and are thus cold applied. This makes them safer in their use for both the user as well as the building. Most products are easily applied by brush, roller or spray, yet they provide optimal protection for your flat roofing.
Are you looking for a high performance paint as the first coat or embedment on the flat roof? 3M have developed a fantastic paint specifically for this, called 3M Skotchkote Poly-Tech EC 661. It will provide a waterproofing membrane that can even be used on other types of roofs, not just flat roofs. This flat roof paint from 3M can be applied in low temperatures. When used in conjunction with 3M Skotchkote Poly-Tech UV 662, these roof paints will provide at least 25 years of protection against the elements.
In the cases where repairs are needed, Rawlins Paints stock a range of flat roof repair paint. These are paints and coatings that are ideal to stop leaks and other weak points in the roof’s surface.
Even if you are dealing with an urgent repair that has to be done in wet weather, there are solutions for this! Mathys have created a great coating that waterproofs instantly.
