Flat commercial roofs are under assault every day of the year from weather-related issues such as windborne debris, precipitation, and solar radiation. Left unaddressed, these hazards can take years off your roof’s lifespan and inflict costly damage on the building itself.

One of the best ways to protect your commercial structure from the elements is with Premiere Roofing & Gutters’ flat roof coating options. These products provide excellent coverage, quick drying times, and proven resilience against Mother Nature.

We install five different types of flat roof coating products in addition to our other commercial roof coatings. Our flat roof coating products include Puma® XL, Benchmark®, Rapid Roof® III, Rapid Roof® HV, and Affinity™. All are made by the Conklin Company, the industry leader in reliable, effective waterproofing solutions.


Puma® XLis a polyurethane/modified acrylic coating with a reflective white finish. It’s designed to protect roofs made of metal, spray polyurethane foam, or Conklin’s proprietary Fabric Reinforced System (FRS). It offers the following benefits:

  • Class A fire rating.
  • Long-lasting protection from hail and other forms of precipitation.
  • Advanced tensile strength: 360 psi base and top.
  • Quick-drying time: Typically, from 2 to 8 hours.
  • Low VOC emissions.


Benchmark®is an elastomeric acrylic roof coating that dries to a brilliant white finish. It’s used on commercial roofs made of metal, polyurethane, or FRS. Its benefits include:

  • Advanced fire resistance: Benchmark® is an ICC-approved flame retardant.
  • Protection from severe weather: Benchmark® is designed to guard commercial roofs against rain, sleet, ice, and hail.
  • Energy savings: Benchmark® is an Energy Star-rated product.
  • Rapid drying time: As little as two hours.
  • Low VOC emissions.


Rapid Roof® III is an elastomeric acrylic roof coating available in eight colors. It’s used on metal, polyurethane, membrane, and FRS commercial roofs. It offers the following advantages:

  • • Class A fire resistance.
  • • CRRC approved: The Cool Roof Rating Council has determined that Rapid Roof® III can help building owners minimize air conditioning costs during warm weather.
  • • Lasting reflectivity: Rapid Roof® III maintains its reflective properties long after its initial installation.
  • • Low VOC emissions.


Rapid Roof® HV is an acrylic elastomeric roof coating that dries to a bright white finish. It’s used for commercial roofs made of metal or FRS. It offers the following benefits:

  • Flexibility: Rapid Roof® HV expands and contracts with changing temperatures, maintaining its waterproofing qualities throughout.
  • Requires only two coats: Allowing for quicker installation.
  • Low VOC emissions.


Affinity™ is a polyurethane roof coating designed for waterproofing metal, FRS, and some types of roofing membranes. Its benefits include:

  • Lasting beauty: Dries to a brilliant, highly reflective white finish.
  • One coat application: A single coat is all that’s needed to protect your commercial roof.
  • High tensile strength.
  • Low VOC emissions.



Preparing Your Building for Commercial Flat Roof Coatings

We’ll prepare your roof for its new coating by removing any materials that may interfere with adhesion. These include dirt, moisture, grease, and other contaminants.

Once this step is complete, we’ll apply the number of coats needed to achieve comprehensive and lasting coverage. Full installation typically takes one working day or less. You’ll have the opportunity to inspect the roof after the job is complete.
