Flat roofs and pitched 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, high-quality pitched and flat roof paints and coatings that have been specifically designed for flat roofs. Whether you are looking for products to provide essential maintenance to your flat or pitched roof or you need a high-performance coating for a new roof, we cover all these bases.
If you are ever in doubt about whether a product is for flat roofs or pitched roofs, please check the product description, data-sheet or contact our Technical Team for advice on which roof paint will be best for your project.
When applied correctly, our high-performance paints, coatings and maintenance products can provide up to 25 years of protection. Our waterproofing membrane, coloured and clear coatings are suitable for a range of roofing materials, including felt, concrete, timber, asphalt and more.
