Roof coatings, including silicone spray roofing systems, are used to protect roofs from the elements. There are two reasons to invest in a silicone roof coating system, including protection to help the roof last longer and lowering energy costs due to the reflective properties.
Roof coatings are generally water-based and described as a liquid carrier. What’s more roof coating can be put on almost any surface found in roofing, including metal, rubber, asphalt, and a variety of other materials.

About Silicone Roof Coating Systems
The main benefits that surround silicone spray roofing involve lower energy costs, simple maintenance, and protection from water. Due to the UV-reflective and water-resistant properties of silicone roof coating, it’s possible to keep commercial roofs safe from things like water and constant sunlight.
Once silicone spray roofing is applied, routine maintenance and cleaning will be important. A white roof coating is commonly put on roofs in places with a lot of dust as well as rain. This means there is going to be a build-up of debris, dirt, dust and other elements on the roof over time.
These elements can accumulate over time and begin to cover the white coating. In addition, the elements can cause discoloration and surface issues on the roof if not properly maintained over time.
Determining when the roof coating needs to be cleaned will depend on the coating used, the roof, and the weather. It is often recommended to clean a silicone roof coating system at least every three years, sometimes every seven years.
The cleaning can be either done by the owner or performed professionally. It depends on what the owner finds to be the best for their situation and budget. For more information on silicone roofing systems, call Polo International at 866-975-2867.
