    Breathe New Life into Your Roof with Great Lakes Roofing and Roof Coatings Blog Cover

    Here at Great Lakes Roofing, we understand that your roof is one of the most important parts of your building. It protects you and your property from the elements, and keeping it in top condition is essential. However, even the most durable roof will eventually start to show signs of wear and tear.

    Michigan businesses face unique challenges in maintaining their properties, with roof maintenance often being one of the more vulnerable areas. From freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall, to intense sunlight and occasional hailstorms, nature’s elements can take their toll over time, eventually degrading roofing materials over time. Before you consider a costly roof replacement, there’s another option: roof coatings.

    What are Roof Coatings?

    Roof coatings offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional roof replacement, providing an additional layer of protection against the elements while extending the lifespan of existing roofing materials. These liquid applications form a seamless barrier over the roof surface, offering numerous benefits for businesses in Michigan:

    Shielding against the elements: Roof coatings protect your roof from harsh sunlight, rain, hail, and even ponding water. This reduces the risk of leaks, cracks, and other damage caused by weather.

    Enhancing energy efficiency: With rising energy costs and growing concerns about environmental sustainability, businesses are increasingly turning to energy-efficient solutions to reduce their carbon footprint and lower utility bills. Many roof coatings are designed to reflect sunlight and heat, keeping buildings cooler in the summer and reducing the need for air conditioning

    Enhanced Durability: By sealing cracks and reinforcing weak spots, roof coatings help to strengthen the roof membrane and prolong its lifespan. This not only reduces the frequency of repairs but also minimizes the risk of premature roof failure, saving businesses time and money in the long run.

    Improving aesthetics: Roof coatings come in a variety of colors, allowing you to enhance the curb appeal of your property while also protecting your roof.

    Duro-Last Roof Coating Solutions

    Duro-Last offers a range of roof coating options, each addressing specific needs and budgets. Their flagship product, Duro-Shield Silicone, boasts exceptional durability and weather resistance. This silicone-based coating comes with extended warranty options, offering peace of mind for long-term protection.


    For a more budget-friendly option, Duro-Shield 10 and 20 offer 100% elastomeric acrylic coatings. While not as robust as Duro-Shield Silicone, they provide excellent protection and extended lifespans, making them suitable for various applications. Duro-Shield 20, the thicker option, offers enhanced protection for roofs requiring additional reinforcement.

    All Duro-Last roof coatings share key benefits. They are applied in a liquid state, forming a seamless membrane that shields the roof from harmful UV rays, hail, and even ponding water. Additionally, they are reflective, lowering energy costs by deflecting heat and reducing air conditioning demands. They also come in a variety of colors, allowing you to enhance the aesthetics of your building while protecting your roof.
