Los Angeles Roof Coatings and Restoration Services
Los Angeles, CA : Commercial roof restoration (aka roof renovation) in the Greater Los Angeles Area can be a smart alternative to a tear-off provided the flat or low-slope roof is a good candidate.
A pitched composition or asphalt shingle roof may also qualify for a recover.
During the complimentary estimate, Central Roofing Company qualified estimators can determine if your existing roof is a good candidate for a roof restoration service.
Part of our due diligence is to confirm with the city (where the building is located in) how many layers of roofing are allowed on your building. This would also apply to recovering a flat roof with a torch modified system.
Below are the types of roof systems we are currently certified and licensed to install for a commercial roof restoration, renovation or recover in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. All of these roof systems can meet Title-24 compliance.
- Torch Modified or Modified Bitumen Recover
- Asphalt or Composition Shingle Recover
Before vs. After a Commercial Roof Restoration
Mattel contracted with us for an industrial roof project in October 2005. This 172,800 square foot roof restoration was completed in 31 crew days.

Step 1 – Roof Preparation
Not to be overlooked, roof preparation is the correction of roof issues prior to installation of the new coating system (before applying asphalt emulsion, polyester reinforcement and the white elastomeric finish coat.) This is a critical step to insure a quality installation that will maximize the useful life of the new roof.
Modified Bitumen is a blend of atactic polypylene polymers mixed with high grade asphalt, reinforced with a non-woven polyester mat. The expected useful life of this material is 20 years. Modified Bitumen is the replacement technology for the old Mineral Capsheet (Hot Mop) technology.
Step 2 – Apply Emulsion & Polyester Reinforcement
The combination of applying layers of asphalt emulsion and polyester reinforcement forms a new, seamless, water-proof membrane over the existing roof and areas reinforced by Modified Bitumen.
Step 3 – Apply White Elastomeric Top Coat
After 1 or 2 days of curing, the roof is ready for the white elastomeric top coat to be spray applied directly to the polyester reinforcement. After curing, you have an Energy-Star rated, Title-24 compliant Cool Roof that can dramatically reduce surface temperature and help reduce cooling costs.
13 Reasons to Get a Cool Roof
Applying a white elastomeric top coat (aka Cool Roof) to your roof building has numerous advantages over a conventional roof. Roof restoration coating systems comprise approximately 65% of today’s commercial roofing needs. They are more cost effective than traditional means of re-roofing.
Here are 13 reasons why getting a cool roof makes sense beyond the obvious energy and cost savings.
1.Minimal inconvenience as there is no need to tear-off existing roofing membrane.
2.Eliminates need to replace insulation which would be costly.
3.Lightweight. Additional layers may be added at a future date which can extend the useful life.
4.Water-based, non-flammable, and odorless.
5.Seamless, encapsulating the existing roofing membrane.
6.Superior water proofing qualities.
7.Extremely flexible with strong elongation properties.
8.Polyester mat(s) provides superior tensile strength.
9.Maintains your current fire rating.
10.Emulsified asphalt deteriorates at a slower rate than hot asphalt-based roof systems.
11.Materials are environmentally friendly with very low VOCs.
12.Energy Efficient and Title-24 Compliant. Research has shown a substantial savings.
13.Potential Tax Benefits.
