What Is Silicone Based Roof Coating?
Commercial properties have a number of options available when it comes to commercial roofing systems.

The bonding agents in silicone roof coating systems connect to the surface.
Silicone is one of the most common roof coating types along with urethane and vinyl. Generally, most silicone roof coating has a combination of zinc and titanium added to make the coating white. The color white is used because of its energy-saving properties however, there are other color options to choose from.
Advantages Of Silicone Roof Coating
As previously mentioned, a silicone roofing coating system offers numerous benefits. The primary benefits are its energy-saving and water-resistant properties. A thin coat of silicone is applied to the surface of the pre-existing roof. The coating provides a protective layer against the elements and can be applied to almost any surface.
Once the silicone roof coating is installed it is relatively easy to maintain. Routine maintenance and cleaning of the coating are still necessary. The dirt, dust, and debris that lands on the roof surface should be removed routinely. This is especially important following heavy storms.
The reflective properties of the coating can be maintained with regular maintenance and cleaning every few years. Doing so will ensure that the reflective properties of the silicone roof coating system does not lose its energy-saving abilities. It is recommended that maintenance and cleaning be done by a professional company or the property owner.
