About Us

Flat Roof Solutions by Surface Coatings, Inc. has been serving the Philadelphia area since 1997. We are a company that was born out of the industrial sector. Our founder, Albert “Bert” Pearson has worked in the industrial coatings industry for over 35 years and has overseen over two million square feet of coverings applied. Bert managed projects, for his father’s company, applying specialized coatings to nuclear power plants, oil tanks, and other specialized areas. Bert parlayed his experience into building his own commercial painting company, which specializes in using cutting edge products to waterproof and protect commercial buildings. In 2003, a representative of Insulating Coatings Corporation, known as ICC-Astec, approached Bert. Astec was searching for qualified applicators to install their roof coatings system. As Bert saw it, a flat roof is actually a perfectly continuous wall, only on a horizontal plane. Hewent through the Astec training, successfully completed projects, and earned a distributorship with the company. After completing several hundred thousand square feet of roof restoration (coating) projects, Bert realized that he needed to start installing flat roofing systems. After looking at the various systems and manufacturers and talking with other excellent contractors we approached Duro-Last roofing to become aqualified contractor for their system. We have had great success with Duro-Last and our customers have been very satisfied. To date we have completed over 2 million square feet of roofing projects. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us regarding your future project.

Thirteen years later, Surface Coatings is one of Astec’s top distributors, and highly regarded applicators on the East coast of the United States. Over the years, Surface Coatings has built relationships with some of the top manufacturers of commercial and industrial coatings in the U.S. We are not only qualified to install many high quality roofing and wall systems, but are regarded as a top tier applicator in the Northeast. We have completed over 1 million square feet of roofing and wall projects. Please do no hesitate to get in touch with us regarding your future project.
