Commercial building roofs are an investment and can negatively impact your company’s bottom line if they’re not cared for properly. With fiberglass emulsion roofing, you have the opportunity to prolong the lifespan of your roof and protect your investment.
Fiberglass emulsion roofing—or as we like to call it, the LeakSeal System—is a cold process spray-applied roof membraneconstructed of four components: asphalt emulsion, fiberglass gun roving, polyester sheeting, and a solar shield reflective coating.
When this coating is applied to a flat or low-slope roof, you provide your commercial building with unmatched protection and reduce the need for a roof replacement for 10 to 20 years. In addition, fiberglass emulsion roofing is a cost-effectivesolution because it costs 50% less than traditional roof replacements.

The LeakSeal System is an ideal option if you’re looking to prolong the lifespan of your building’s roof without a full roof replacement. Fiberglass emulsion roofing can be applied to almost any roof, including asphalt-based and metal roofingsystems.
Fiberglass emulsion roof coatings have unparalleled durability, flexibility, and strength. The cold-spray application process preserves the top coat’s elasticity and flexibility, meaning it won’t deteriorate over time and reduces the risk of splitting the roof’s membrane.
Fiberglass emulsion roofing is topped with a waterproof surface coating that damp proofs the roof and provides a more accessible surface to clean and perform roof maintenance and repairs on.
The LeakSeal System is one of the greenest solutions in the roofing market. Since there’s no need to remove existing roofing materials, a fiberglass roof produces no waste, which adds to its environmentally friendly nature. This roofing system is also renewable and developed without using any harsh chemicals.
Cleaning and preparing the roof for coating is essential for a smooth installation process. Cleaning the roof includes gathering large pieces of debris, sweeping to remove dirt and dust, and pressure washing to clear away heavier buildup. After deep cleaning your commercial building’s rooftop, you must let it sit and dry for one to two hours so the coating can stick.
Performing roof repairs allows you to identify weaknesses in the roof before the fibered coating is applied. This includes performing a complete roof inspection and making repairs as needed to ensure the fiberglass emulsion roofing can do its job as efficiently as it should.
It’s vital to understand your region’s weather conditions for the next 24 to 36 hours. Fibered roof coatings provide the best overall coverage and fastest drying solution when the weather is between 70 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Above all, it’s important that no rainfall is expected before applying the coating.
In the final step, the coating is pumped onto the rooftop. The coating is pumped from a tanker, where there’s a mounted pump that sprays directly on the roof. The spray gun simultaneously sprays the asphalt emulsion and chopped fiberglass to form a continuous roof membrane. This eliminates the risk of your rooftop worker from getting trapped in the corner of the roof. After the entire roof is coated, it must sit for 24 hours to harden and form the mold of your roof.
The LeakSeal System offers many benefits to your commercial building, including a prolonged lifespan and increased protection. With Leak Seal Roofing, you can rest assured knowing you’re only getting the best service to protect your investment.
