The History of the #1 Brand in the Roofing Industry!
Roofmaster pioneered The Roof Flashing Paint business in the late 1990’s. The practice started in Texas, where the contractors started painting the flashings and vents of large tracts to match the color of the shingles, as an added feature to gain business away from other contractors who didn’t. In the beginning they used paint in a can and a brush, but found that it took too much time and if an open can tipped, it could ruin a roof, driveway etc. In looking for canned spray paint, they found that box store paints were not made to cover, hide or adhere to the metal parts. Roofmaster’s reps brought the idea to our engineers to develop a long lasting, heavy duty paint formulated specifically for metal roof flashings, knowing that we already painted all of our own manufactured equipment. The Roofmaster brand was formulated and became an instant success in Texas, Oklahoma, California and the western states. Texas storm chasers, roofers who follow and do work in areas that have been hit by hail, tornadoes and hurricanes, spread the practice of painting flashings throughout the Midwest, Southeast and Florida. Now, painting those flashings vents, pipes and dormers has become a standard practice on residential and commercial roofs throughout most of the U.S. Today, the Roofmaster Flashing Paint has been used by Contractors to give MILLIONS of satisfied homeowners roofs, an eye pleasing, professionally finished touch, making it the #1 Brand in the Roofing Industry!
