Century Shield Commercial Roofing LLC believes that using high quality, top-grade products, and professional application saves you both time and money in commercial and industrial roof repair. That’s why we are proud users of Conklin roofing products.
These elastomeric systems offer highly reflective energy star ratings blocking up to 85% of the suns UV rays which results in saving you money. The Department of Energy finds that our coatings save an average 15% on air conditioning. Reducing both heat transmission into the building in summer, and heat loss during the cold winter months.
Commercial and Industrial Roof Membrane System
We use the Conklin Membrane Coating System which can revive your failing EPDM, PVC, or other SINGLE PLY northeastern Ohio Commercial Roof. Traditional membranes are often black in color absorbing the sun's heat and causing substantial expansion and contraction, which puts extreme stress on the seams - causing them to fail which always results in leaks.
We start by using a high strength roof cleaner which opens the pores on the membrane and allows us to clean it very well. We then apply a primer to the roof area. All the seams and protrusions are then coated and reinforced with fabric which eliminates seam separation. The entire roof is then sealed with a water-based acrylic latex coating, which is, of course, a highly reflective white coating that will stay air temperature or cooler which drastically reduces expansion and contraction.
We offer a 10 YEAR LEAK FREE RENEWABLE WARRANTY with this system to give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Commercial Metal Roof Repair and Restoration
Metal Roof Restoration is a complete waterproofing system for commercial metal roofs that inhibits rust, stops leaks and provides an energy efficient, long-lasting and attractive finish coat for years of service. All seams are strengthened with fabric reinforcement embedded in our acrylic elastomeric (elastic property of rubber) roof coating. Exposed fasteners are sealed from the elements with premium caulking. Finally, the entire surface of the roof is protected with one of Conklin's industry-leading roof coatings. The system is an effective method for preserving an existing metal roof without the need for costly metal repair or replacement.

When you invest in an energy efficient roof you can expect to reap substantial savings by as much as 30% in air conditioning cost. 330-419-4352 uses Conklin’s ENERGY STAR rated roof coatings that can drastically reduce your cooling cost by reflecting up to 85% of the sun’s ultraviolet energy rather than absorbing it in the form of heat.
A tax advantage for building owners while saving energy! Expensing coatings versus capital depreciation lowers cash outlays and maximizes tax expense allowances. A metal roof restoration can be expensed as a repair or maintenance cost while roof replacement has to be capitalized.
Commercial EPDM / Modified Bitumen Roof Repair and Restoration for Ohio
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) roofing is a type of thermoset membrane roof material. It is the most common material used to create rubber roofs and is derived from oil and natural gases. EPDM roofs are widely used in commercial and residential applications.
EPDM Roof Issues
EPDM roofs are fairly unattractive and over time, EPDM rubber roofing experiences wear-and-tear problems. The synthetic rubber’s dark colors tend to absorb most of the sun’s rays, leading to degradation of the EPDM’s membrane. As the membrane decomposes, it becomes more susceptible to puncturing.
An Affordable and Effective EPDM / Mod-Bit Coating Solution
Century Shield Commercial Roofing LLC utilizes Conklin's innovative roof recoating systems, which can actually extend the life of your existing EPDM or Modified Bitumen roofing system and save on energy costs at the same time. An EPDM coating system is an effective and economical alternative to a complete tear. Conklin's elastomeric roof coatings provide cost-effective roof restoration for approved single-ply substrates, resulting in improved energy savings, and years of new life for an old roof! Adding a white, energy efficient, lightweight coating on top of your current black EPDM roof is the smart choice for a number of reasons.
- Possibly avoid the expensive tear-off and haul away of your existing roof and the tremendous workplace disruption it causes
- Potentially save enough in cooling costs to pay for your recoat within just 7 years! Our Energy-Star rated white topcoats reflect up to 85% of the suns heat rays, cooling your roof and building naturally so you spend up to 30% less on air conditioning
- Possibly qualify for new federal tax credits and/or rebates earmarked for energy efficient projects
Today there are millions of square feet of heavy, black BUR and Mod. Bit. roofs in serious decline due to age and the effects of thermal expansion. By applying one of Conklin's lightweight, white, reflective coatings directly on top of their existing substrates, building owners can save substantial time and money.
- Highly reflective
- Cooler roof surface
- Extended roof life
- Energy Efficient

A white Conklin commercial roof is the smartest way to stay in the black
Reduce cooling expense by up to 30%
The average roof absorbs a large portion of the sun's ultraviolet rays as heat. Conklin's white Singly-Ply Roofing Systems reflect 84% of the sun's heat, cooling your roof and saving you as much as 30% in air conditioning costs.
Recoup your costs
A great return on investment is another important reason to install a Conklin Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System. Many satisfied building owners discover that a Conklin roof pays for itself during the warranty period in lower air conditioning costs. Federal tax rebates, tax credits, and deductions may also offset your investment. Check with your local utility company, tax advisor, and visit energystar.gov for additional details.
Eliminate future roof tear-offs
Years from now, when it's time to renew the superior protection of your Conklin roof a simple recoat will do the job. In most cases, multiple recoats can be applied for as long as you own your building, saving you the expense of a new roof. With your recoat, our material warranty may also be extended.
Look forward to years of trouble-free protection, low maintenance
Conklin's Fabric-Reinforced Roofing Systems provide leak-free protection and exceptional energy savings for years, often exceeding the warranty period. They maintain maximum reflectivity and energy savings because their surfaces are resistant to dirt and discoloration. Annual or bi-annual cleaning is all that's needed to keep them white.
Commercial Flat and Low Sloped Roof Repair and Restoration
As a northeastern Ohio commercial building owner, you know that Flat or Low Sloped Roofs have certain problems generally associated with them. These problems can affordably be solved with roof coatings which are engineered to eliminate never-ending leaking, ponding and rapid deterioration caused by the various elements which can occur with flat or low slope roofs.
Century Shield Commercial Roofing LLC uses Conklin Roofing Systems which have been applied to over 2 billion square feet of roofing throughout the United States since 1977. Conklin’s white roofs reflect the sun’s hot UV rays rather than absorbing them the way black roofs do. Conklin roofing systems & roof coatings have been proven to be energy efficient in some very intense situations and under some very intense scrutiny.
Benefits of a Roof Coating Restoration
- Save on roofing tear-off and disposal costs.
- No need for repeated/constant roof leak repair.
- Speeds up the time or restoring your roof.
- Application is less disruptive and often consists of us only needing a small crew.
- You will end up with a Restored Commercial Roof which is;
- Highly reflective
- Cooler roof surface
- Energy Efficient!
- Extended roof life
Flat Roof Coating Options
Elastomeric is an elastic coating which goes on as a liquid, then the acrylics dry to a seamless, bright clean and modern coating that prolongs the life of your roof. It will expand and contract; in the summer heat, it will stretch. After dark, the membrane goes back to its original size. No cracks, leaks or bubbles.
This is a complete waterproofing system that significantly improves the building's energy efficiency. Each problem area is systematically addressed during the restoration process. The entire roof is then sealed with a reflective finish coat that also cools the roofing surface, cutting cooling costs by 20%.
With the high cost of asphalt roofing, roof replacement is expensive compared to some coatings. Roll asphalt generally only lasts 10 years. We can add up to 20 years to that useful life.

Commercial Spray Polyurethane Foam Roof Coatings
Sprayed Polyurethane Foam (SPF), is a closed cell roofing and insulation material that both waterproofs and insulates. Sprayed Polyurethane Foam has the highest R-value of any insulation material which can help make your roof leak free and at the same time add exceptional R-value that lowers your energy costs!
Recommended for application over these surfaces:
- Composite Decking
Benefits of a Spray Polyurethane Foam Roof
1). Seams are one of the major sources of leaks in roof systems and SPF roofs are totally seamless.
2). Water does not travel laterally in SPF roofs as it can in BUR (Built-up roofs with multiple plies of roof felts laminated together with bitumen) or single-ply roofs. A leak in the top membrane of a BUR or single-ply roof will create the spreading of water, saturating the insulation and causing multiple interior leaks. With SPF, even if a hole is punched through the entire two-inch membrane, water movement will be restricted to the hole. In most cases, repairs can be made with a tube of caulk.
3). Because the SPF roof is lightweight, permeable and fully adhered, normally an old roof does not need to be removed in order to apply a new one. If underlying areas of saturated insulation are found, minimal tear-off may be required.
Life Expectancy of Sprayed Polyurethane Foam Roofs
There are no known end of service life figures for SPF. Generally, if SPF is pressure washed and sprayed with a top coat every 15 to 20 years this system will last decades. SPF shows little sign of deterioration or change in physical properties even after 30 years.
Condensation Concerns of Sprayed Polyurethane Foam Roofs
SPF provides a continuous air barrier preventing moisture through air leakage, minimizing dew point problems and condensation within the building envelope avoiding thermal bridging, resisting heat movement in all directions and providing reliable performance under varying conditions.
SPF roof systems can be applied directly over BUR, modified-bitumen, concrete, wood, asphalt shingles, clay tile, and metal.
Since it adds very little weight (about 8oz. per square foot at 1 inch thick) SPF is used as a recovery system over existing roofs without the need for tear-off. This reduces the amount of construction debris in landfills. Also if no tear off is needed, exposing the interior of your building to the elements is eliminated.
Another major advantage in a Sprayed Polyurethane Foam roof system that does not exist with any other roofing system, is the SPF is a renewable system. While BUR and single-ply roofs must be removed and replaced after their usable lives, SPF roofs can be repaired and recoated to offer an indefinite life expectancy coupled with the energy savings and reduction of in-house maintenance costs.
The SPF roofing system maintains a tremendous long-term cost efficiency advantage over all other roofing systems.
