Professional Roof Coating Services
Zenith Painting & Coatings is bringing professional coating systems to new heights and onto your roof with UNIFLEX Fluid Applied Roofing Systems along with GacoRoof products. Your roof endures Mother nature’s best and worst while sheltering us and therefore that layer of protection should be reinforced. From severe hailstorms to gusty winds, a professional roof coating system will combat all forces of nature while reducing costs, carbon footprints, and ultimately extending the life of your roof.
The Benefits of Roof Coating Systems
The largest advantage to installing a Fluid Applied Roof Coating System is the cost savings. On average, a roof coating system will cost roughly 30 to 40% of the total cost to do a full tear off and replacement of the existing flat roof; not to mention that in most in most regions, it is considered a “line item maintenance expense” allowing you to enjoy the full amount of the expense in the same calendar year rather than the 5 year amortization schedule required of all “capital expenditures” such as a full re-roof project.
Energy Reduction / Energy Credit
An additional benefit to Fluid Applied Roof Coatings is the reduction of energy required to cool the space during the summer. The Uniflex Roof Coatings and GacoRoof products are specifically engineered to reflect the vast majority of UV rays hitting the roof to prevent them from heating up the surface, and subsequently the space below. This will greatly reduce the workload of the AC units which reduces utility costs while also extending the life of each AC unit. It’s a win-win-win! An increased awareness and reduction in energy consumption has prompted energy companies to offer energy credits/rebates in many regions.

Fluid Applied Roof Coatings have been found to be beneficial in a number of different industries including but not limited to: Healthcare, Education, Military & Government, Retail, Offices, Manufacturing, Stadiums & Arenas, Hospitality, Multi-Family Communities, and Agriculture.

Unfortunately, the disposal of roofing products which, mainly consists of tar and rubber, fills up 15% of landfills and poses as a global environmental issue. Many times the damage on roofs are far from a point of no return, but are torn off anyway producing vast amounts of unnecessary waste. Zenith is often able to repair the existing damage to the roof and seal the entire surface with a roof coating. This will save you upwards of 60–70% of the cost to remove & replace an entire roof while eliminating the waste all together.
By applying our white or light-grey color coating, the roof will also become more reflective and retain less heat. This will reduce the heat inside of your home or building thus minimizing the use of AC units during the warm seasons.
Hail Damage Protection
The UNIFLEX Fluid Applied Roofing Systems and GacoRoof products are highly elastic and handle impact substantially better than most traditional roof substrates. During an intense storm, a roof can have its lifespan diminished from 20 years to 2 years and the accumulation of smaller storms can cause damage to your roof over time. By applying a roof coating system to your existing roof, you can greatly reduce the chances of hail damage on the roof system thus extending its lifespan. Not to mention, it may prevent your building from exceeding the “claim cost ratio” insurance companies use to determine whether or not they will continue to offer you coverage.

Steps for Colorado Homeowners to Follow After a Hailstorm
- Do not have a door-to-door solicitation roofing company inspect your roof.
- Contact a local, licensed roofer to inspect your roof. If they believe the damage is significant enough to file a claim, collect your homeowner’s insurance policy and call the insurance agent.
- The insurance company will send a claim adjuster to your house to assess the damage and formulate an estimate to have your repair or replaced and to repair other damaged areas as well.
- Contact the same roofer who inspected your house to review the estimate from the insurance adjuster, and compare reports for the repairs that are required:
- Supplementing the insurance claim may be necessary to ensure all damages from the storm are covered.
- Tip: Not all roofing contractors offer supplementing services so be sure to ask before you schedule them to come out.
- The insurance company will send you a check for your roof replacement.
- Once the roof repairs have been completed, have your roofing contractor send an invoice to your insurance company to have them add it to your records and to confirm the project was indeed completed.

When Is Hail Season and What Does That Mean For Homeowners?
“Hail season” in Colorado can start as early as March and run till September. Immediately after a storm, you may notice door-to-door “roof inspectors” offering free estimates. While it may seem convenient at the moment, we strongly recommend that you take the time to thoroughly research certified roofers and schedule a time to have your roof inspected. This step can drastically reduce out-of-pocket costs and allow you to search for a local licensed contractor that best suits your needs.
Should I Do Research Before Hiring A Door-to-Door Inspector?
This step will also allow you to weed out the out-of-state “Storm Chasers” that are generally only interested in pushing a claim through as quickly as possible so they can take off to the next storm rather than make sure your insurance claim is processed thoroughly. Many homeowners are shocked to find out that the initial settlement amount offered by their insurance company only covers a fraction of the cost required to get the repair work completed. A reputable roofing contractor is there to work on your behalf and make sure the insurance company is providing the proper coverages based on the damage caused by the storm. We have seen settlement amounts of $7,500 initially offered by insurance companies go up to more than $40,000 once a certified roofer got involved and started advocating for their client.
