Many building owners and facility maintenance managers do not realize they typically have the option to save a lot of time and money by restoring their existing roof to new. Installing a roof coating system that is applied directly on top of their aged or failing rooftop allows them to avoid a traditional roof tear-off or roof replacement. By re-roofing their building, they can save a tremendous amount of time, money, and headache.

When you tear your existing roof off your building, you incur labor fee’s which depend on how long it takes to remove the old roof, you incur landfill waste fee’s and you lose money and opportunities because your business cannot stay open during construction.

Re-Roofing Saves Time and Money
Re-roofing or coating your roof eliminates any removal stages and landfill costs. The roof coating system is spray applied directly over the existing roof membrane, covering it completely and restoring it into a brand new rooftop. These systems are not disruptive during installation, allowing your business to remain open and proceed as usual. There is no drilling, nailing, or welding associated with these roof coating systems, eliminating any disruptive noises.  National Coatings in particular uses base and top coats containing ultra-low or zero VOC’s eliminating harmful and strong odors. Companies such as Kaiser Permanente and Arden Fair Mall greatly benefited from one of National Coatings re-roofing systems as it was extremely important for both companies to remain open during construction, causing no disruption to their facility, their employee’s and their customers/patients.

Most roofs can be re-coated and restored. National Coatings recommends contacting one of our Roofing Professionals to get a roof evaluation done to see what type of system best suites your roofs needs. It is unlikely but possible that the existing roof is so damaged that it cannot be salvageable so a professional evaluation is the best way to move forward. Roof coating systems can be applied on virtually any roof substrate, such as asphalt, bur, mod bit, single-ply, Hypalon, TPO, EPDM, metal and concrete roofs.

Need Help? Contact a Roofing  Professional  Zero ObligationAcryPly Roof Restoration Systems can be applied over BUR, Modified Bitumen, EPDM, PVC, TPO, Hypalon, Metal and Transite. The roofing systems contain polyester fabric that is embedded into the base coat, across the entire roof field. This provides the existing roof with an extremely durable, reinforcing layer. The AcryShield base coats used in these restoration systems provide waterproofing, superior adhesion, resistance to ponded water, bleed-through protection and resistance to plasticizer migration. The AcryShield top coats provide industry leading UV protection, longevity and brightness. They are formulated for superior dirt pick-up resistance and protection against biological attack, such as algae and mold. 

2 Different Systems:

  • The AcryPly All Acrylic System for roofing substrates that is smooth such as single-plies and metal.


  • The AcryPly Emulsion and Acrylic System designed for asphalt, BUR, and Mod Bit roofing. This system uses LiquiSeal™ emulsion, which economically fills in any cracks and voids typically found in asphalt roofing. This provides additional waterproofing and an outstanding foundation upon which to build the balance of the membrane.
