    Silicone Roof Coating Installation

    A major benefit of a silicone roof coating system is that it can be done much faster than typical commercial roof restorations. Renewing your roof with this system is done by a spray application for commercial projects while smaller roof jobs and sections can be rolled on. Either way they both offer the same benefits when renewing your commercial roof system. Older commercial roofs have a variety of issues that wears them down – getting to hot, losing energy, leaking, puddling can all benefit from a silicone roof coating. The silicone roof coating installation begins with a thorough cleaning of the roof and then the application of the silicone product to the commercial roof’s surface. In some cases when the roof has challenging and problematic protrusions caulk and a polyester fabric can be utilized to strengthen your roof.

    What Does A Silicone Coating Do During Its Lifespan?

    Once the silicone roof coating has been installed most people do not know exactly what is provided and the benefits. Providing protection from the harsh elements of mother nature’s relentless grind is at the core. Creating a seamless waterproof coating that is reflective instead of absorptive will stop leaks and better resists ponding water. The reflective nature of a silicone roof coating keeps the surface of your commercial roof much cooler despite the UV rays 12 plus hours a day. This also causes you to use less energy to cool your building saving money on power and lowering your carbon footprint at the same time.

    What Can You Expect At The End Of The Silicone Coating’s Life?

    So what might happen after ten to fifteen years after the roof coating installation and or the warranty date? Does the original roof coating have to be removed and stripped to reapply?

    Absolutely not, at the end of the coatings life, you merely have to re-spray a new silicone coating onto the existing surface. It is straightforward with the reapplication with the exception of needing to prep and wash the roof before the application. Once this is done your warranty date will then be extended again.
