Rooflock is a roof refurbishment product manufacturer based in Manchester, UK. The brand name is often used when referring to the products they produce.

Here at D&D Coatings we have been using these products for some years, now on various projects across the UK. They have been manufactured to the highest quality for many years and we are proud to say we use them!

The range is quite extensive, however for now we are going to focus on the two main products that we use, Rooflock Twelve and Rooflock Gutter Coating System. Both have been available on the coatings market since 2011 and we use on many of our roof refurbishment projects.

What is Rooflock Twelve?

We specify Rooflock Twelve on many of our projects. It has been engineered to protect corroded metal roof sheets and works perfectly when used to treat cut edge corrosion.

It’s applied directly onto corroded areas to seal lap joints with its strong adhesive qualities performing perfectly on most metal roof coatings. It has high elasticity and flexibility enabling it to withstand sheet movement. It can also be cold-applied and is unaffected by extreme temperatures in adverse weather. It is UV stable and BBA certified for up to 20 years. It is an extremely cost effective way to extend the lifespan of a metal roof.

What is Rooflock Gutter Coating System?

Rooflock Gutter Coating System is a proven gutter lining system, one of the best in Europe if not worldwide. Its primary purpose is waterproofing and protecting metal gutters, central valleys and eaves.

Standing water in a metal gutter accelerates substrate corrosion, this can be disastrous if left untreated. Protecting the gutter system with a high performance waterproof coating system such as Rooflock is essential. It guarantees the long term performance of the gutter system which will no longer need to be completely replaced — which is an expensive task.

Here at D&D Coatings we recommend that all our clients should regularly maintain and clean their gutters, a task we carry out on a daily basis for them. This ensures the free flowing of water straight to the drains. When water is left to stand it provides a safe place for moss and other plant growth. This is bad and eventually results in a blocked drainage system which leaks into the building and causes corrosion.

Rooflock Gutter Coating System has a unique reinforcement structure that is very fast curing. It comes with a 10 year warranty, providing peace of mind for us and our clients. This provides significant time savings against other more conventional coating systems.

Gutter maintenance and cleaning is made easy by the non-chalking, semi-gloss finish of Rooflock Gutter Coating System. This accelerates water shed and prevents the build up of moss and other organic matter.
