Building Transformation provides reliable roof coating services for both domestic and commercial properties. Our technicians are highly trained and come with full accreditation and licencing, ensuring health and safety compliance for every roofing project.
Roof painting, also called roof coating or roof waterproofing, is a treatment option for roofs that more people are investing in. Given the harsh weather conditions a roof faces each day, providing it with a protective coating does a lot for the long-term durability of the roof.
A durable roof means less problems developing, such warping membrane or cracked shingles, helping to avoid potentially costly repair and replacement work. Roof repairs are a necessary expense but one that could be better avoided through an effective roof coating.
We offer flexible roof painting services for properties of every shape and size. We are happy to coat roofs at various heights, using the latest access equipment to ensure safe and efficient accessibility to the roof during the painting.
Roof coating and roof painting is the process of applying a protective layer to the surface of a roof. While the terms are often interchangeable, roof coatings and roof paintings are slightly different.
The main difference between these materials is that paint provides a coloured finish, often to increase the aesthetic appeal of the roof. A roof coating offers a colourless finish, focusing mainly on protecting the roof surface.
Different roof coatings and paints are recommended depending on the type of roof material. For example, polyurethane coatings are used on flat roofs to help strengthen the membrane, which sees high foot traffic.
Furthermore, the protective qualities of the paint or coating differs from each product. Some are designed to offer the best roof waterproofing, while others focus more on protecting against UV damage.
Most roof coatings in the UK are understandably applied to help with waterproofing – we do see lots of rain here after all!
The main advantage of using roof coatings and roof paintings is simple – they provide more protection for the roof.
Roofing systems face all kinds of extreme conditions that cause damage over time. The two most common are UV and moisture damage. With a special coating applied, roof surfaces can reflect more UV rays, reducing the damage it causes to surface materials over time.
Similarly, roof waterproofing is greatly improved when applying a suitable treatment to the surface. By applying a protective layer across the surface material, water and moisture cannot pass through small cracks, holes, and splits on the roof material.
Not only does this protect against leaks and moisture damage, but it also prevents corrosion to various parts of the roof, which is also a serious structural issue
Given the serious damage leaky and corroded roofs causes, and the expensive cost of repairs/replacements, roof waterproofing is a great investment for any property!

A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight. The Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work around dynamic operational issues completing the project within three weeks.
May & Co have worked with Building Transformation on a number of projects which have included external building cleaning and refurbishment. They provided a great service, supported by the high level of documentation from the initial quotation to books and industry-related guidance, all relevant to our project.
I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business. They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.
Building Transformation is always mindful of the environments they are working in and take the time to understand the restrictions of each site; whether they be physical or due to the client’s day to day activities. They are extremely proactive and ensure that any issues are flagged to a client immediately, and when doing so always make sure a solution is provided. I couldn’t recommend Building Transformation more highly.
I had a walk around today with Dave and am impressed with the work so far. Dave and the team have done a great job.
I’d certainly love to work with you in the future so perhaps before the job is completed we could look at what opportunities there are for the future.
At this stage, from my point of view your team has been extremely professional, informing us of what was happening at all times and most importantly no disruption whatsoever to our guests and business.
The team at Building Transformation understood our challenge of finding a facade cleaning solution that would initially restore the glazing to its original state, protecting our building for years to come. Through intelligent and thorough testing right through to the full restoration of Block D, we have been very satisfied with the project management and delivery of the cleaning programme.
