At Red Rhino Roofs, there are two main aspects that we notice when observing a roof:

1. Geometric considerations, such as shape and size
2. The material, which we refer to as its coating

The most common types of domestic roofing are asphalt shingles, ceramic tile, slate shingles, wood, cedar shingles or shake, and metal roofing.

Roofs are affected by an array of factors, such as sunlight and inclement weather. Some roofing materials, such as asphalt, will be easier to treat because they’re more durable. Metal roofs in particular are also known for their durability.

But roof coatings are different from the underlying material used to build a roof. Coatings are what help maintain your roof in the face of external factors. There are many benefits to roof coatings.

Roof Coating Types

The different types of roof coating center around addressing the varying factors your roof will face. For example, if your home’s location is subject to torrential downpours, you’ll want to consider a bituminous roof coating, which gears toward waterproofing your roof.


Protect and extend the life of your roof with our silicone roof coating. Red Rhino Roofs offer a proven, guaranteed solution that can be applied to virtually every roof surface. This creates a seamless membrane that protects your roof against daily UV rays, ponding water, and severe weather. This 100% silicone formula is stable and flexible, allowing the coating to expand and contract along with the roof for years to come.


Acrylic coatings are manufactured of 100% acrylic and they are used for a variety of roof membrane surfaces, including single-ply membranes and metal systems. These materials provide substantial resistance to radiation and hail damage. Furthermore, they have the inherent flexibility that is required to withstand the dimensional instability of some roof membrane surfaces. Acrylic coatings are economical and easy to work with. Ideal curing takes place with warm weather and low humidity.

Roof Coating Process

Majority of installs will follow these steps.


We clean the roof surface with a power washer, preparing it to receive coating. A minimum of 2,000 psi of water pressure is used. All loose dirt and debris is removed are removed in the process.


Once roof is dry, make any necessary repairs to drains, seams, flashings, and fasteners to get them in good working condition.

Adhesion tests

We perform adhesion tests and, if necessary, apply a primer to your roof to improve coating adhesion.

Coating application

After making repairs, we apply coating at the proper rate for your roof type. A medium nap roller is used to spread the coating out as evenly as possible.

Final Cleanup

Tools and equipment with mineral spirits are cleaned. No water is used.
