built-up roof coating?

My Tampa home has two flat roof sections (BUR) that are in OK shape, redone in 2009, no leaks, and the rest of the house is regular shingles. One roof section is over a bedroom, while the other is over a patio. I got one quote for $4,000 to redo it in PVC/vinyl.

But what about just getting up there and rolling this coating on it? Seems it would prolong the life as long as I keep a good solid coat on it. Does it work?

Tropi-Cool 4.75 Gal. 887 White 100% Silicone Roof Coating

I have no idea which product to choose - $250 is on the high end of the other products. I do have a bit of standing water when it rains.

go to a roofing supply house. ive been using elastomeric roof paint for years here in Arizona with temps in summer well over 110 degrees. works great, last a long time, years and years, and cuts down on heating cost. but a roofing house would carry the better stuff, and what i buy doesnt cost anywhere near that price. think i pay about $120.00 for 5 gallons. i use elas-tek, number 109 or 114, always put 4 coats, letting it dry one day between. biggest problem people have is not putting enough coats. they say 5 gallons does three coats but if your doing more than 800 square then 8 five gallons will do four coats, and thats putting it on thick. ive seen it on roofs her after 15 years and it still looks good.
