Determine If Your Roof is a Candidate for Silicone Roof Coatings

The roof of your commercial building is just as important as the foundation. Without a sturdy roof, your building will deteriorate over time, and the cost of repairing your roof or replacing it will be astronomically expensive. Silicone roof coatings can benefit your roof and protect your investment.

What Are the Benefits of Silicone Roof Coating?

Save Time

Silicone roof coatings contain higher solids than other roof coatings, including acrylic, butyl, and polyurethane. With higher solids, silicone roof coating can save a lot of time because less time is spent on the roof applying the coating. Silicone is thick and only one coat is needed to get the job done without any compromises. Additionally, even a power washer can be used to apply silicone coating to your roof.

Save Money

Using silicone roof coatings help you save money on materials because primer is rarely needed when you're using silicone. Silicone roof coating can be applied directly to your roof without any extensive work.

Environmentally Safe

Silicone roof coating has low VOC, volatile organic compound levels, and is solvent-free. VOCs are known to have negative short-term and long-term health effects. Unlike other roof coatings, silicone does not contain fuel levels that are high enough to cause a fire.

Having Your Roof Coated by a Professional

Your roof's lifespan last decades. Your roof will last longer if it is maintained properly, but it doesn't have an unlimited lifespan, so you want to make sure your roof lives to its full potential. One way to ensure your roof lasts for many years without too many problems is to have your roof coated with silicone by a professional. Professionals have the experience and expertise to get the job done correctly the first time in a timely manner. Professionals are also licensed, insured, and offer warranties on their products.

What Are the Signs You Need Silicone Roof Coating?

Your building will show wear and tear when maintenance needs to be done, especially with the roof. When you need silicone roof coating, your building will struggle to keep cool. If your building was built in the 1960s or 1970s, we recommend silicone roof coating because older buildings are prone to more roof problems.

Also, if you're planning to sell your building, having silicone roof coating applied to the roof boosts its resale value, and it lets buyers know you have taken care of it because it is well-maintained.

What Other Factors Influence the Need for Silicone Roof Coating?

If you can't afford the astronomical expense of purchasing a new roof, and many people can't, silicone roof coating is perfect for this situation. A building in a tropical climate or location where temperatures are extremely cold or hot can wear your roof down drastically, decreasing its lifespan. Silicone can help reduce the amount of heat that is transferred into your building, which reduces how much the roof's materials expand or contract.
