What started as a search for an affordable roofing option during the renovation of a mobile home has evolved into a rapidly expanding company. Frustrated with the quotes we received for a torch- on roof installation on a relatively small project, the hunt for other options began. After testing several products, and finally creating our own system for Canadian climates, where roofs experience rapid thermal cycling (freeze/thaw), we now offer Renewable Lifetime Warranties for our Installation Services as well as, Do It Yourself Kits, for Horse trailer and RV repairs.
Together, we hope to inspire others to explore their re-roofing options and find the best fit for their budget, roof situation, and the environment.
To make Liquid Roof Coatings Accessible and Affordable for everyone. To eliminate the unneeded health hazards of continuous moisture penetration in RV’s, Homes, Barns, and Commercial Buildings. And to offer an Affordable re-roofing option that doesn’t require a second mortgage to enjoy.
WHY IT MATTERS?
Intended to be disposable but built to last forever, roofs are necessary and can be found anywhere: unfortunately evidence says the waste of re-roofing is slowly taking over landfills.

** Lifetime Renewable Warranty ** with minor maintenance every couple of years by Certified Roof Armour Installers – no tear off will ever be required again.
WHY IT MATTERS?
Intended to be disposable but built to last forever, roofs are necessary and can be found anywhere: unfortunately evidence says the waste of re-roofing is slowly taking over landfills. Currently up to 20% of landfill space is being used by roofing material (depending on location). Consider this: 11 million tons of asphalt shingle waste is generated in the U.S. each year. That is more than the combined weight of every Ford vehicle sold in the U.S. in 2011. If you think about how many houses and commercial buildings we have in this country — how many rooftops we have — you will begin to appreciate how much roofing waste we generate. (Sources)
Roof Armour Coatings are eco-friendly in more ways than one, they also help to reduce green house gasses and urban heat islands. Cool (or reflective) roofs also help to reflect sunlight and heat away from your home, reducing roof temperatures. This allows for your home to stay cooler in hot summer months, reducing the amount of air conditioning needed during hot days. According to a study conducted in California, cool roofs can provide annual energy savings of almost 50 cents per square foot. Such energy savings can also result in better air quality in your community and fewer greenhouse gases emitted to the atmosphere.

Since 2012, we’ve been helping companies as well as families in Canada and U.S., think and act greener by Repairing, Restoring, Sealing and Protecting their roofs rather than supporting the Dump and Waste mentality, common in the Construction industry.
Our hope is to offer this generation of open minded thinkers, the tools and options to install a Restorative, Reflective, Renewable roof coatings, reducing waste, greenhouse emissions and providing a healthier place for our future generations
WHAT YOU CAN DO?
Choose Reflective and Renewable Roof Coatings! Be part of the change. The next time you think you need a new roof consider a roof restoration or repair instead with a coating that will last longer than you do. Collectively, our conscious choices can lead to big environmental changes in the local and global communities where we live, work and play.
