Benefits of Silicone Roofing I – what is it?
Similar in texture and consistency to both rubber and plastic, silicone is a chemical compound that is lab made. It is created by combining silicon, a periodic element,  with various other polymers. The process we use to apply the silicone roofing is called Silicone Single Ply- or SSP for short. This is because the compound only needs a single layer of the application to function. The process entails pumping the needed chemical components through a pressurized hose, which also acts a heater for the chemical mixture. This mixes the compound and then sprays a single layer across the roof.

  • Upfront Cost – Compared to other roofing Products, SSP is relatively inexpensive. You also won’t have to invest in heavy roof cleaning to prepare for the installation, as SSP can be installed in a variety of conditions, and temperatures.
  • Continued Savings – silicone roofing lowers energy bills on average by 20/30% simply by keeping the building cooler. Additionally, silicone roofing is almost always 100% tax-deductible- though you will need to contact your local tax professional to make sure.
  • Warranty – We have 15 and 20-year manufacturers warranties available
  • Eco-Friendly – SSP process results in an environmentally friendly teardown and disposal.
  • Incredibly durable – a large single seal that will protect and insulate for years to come.

It’s easy to see why SSP  is such an incredible roofing option. However, the products themself are half of the equation, the other half is the contractor who does the work.
