Silicone Roof Coating Restoration (RCR) for Kansas City Buildings
It is common for many commercial roofs to start experiencing failure throughout their lifespan due to a number of factors. As a commercial building owner, when it comes to repairing or maintaining your roof, there are many options you must carefully consider, some more costly than others. The options range from complete tear offs and reinstallation to small minor repairs to your substrate and seams.
At Major Painting we offer a Silicone Roof Coating Restoration system (RCR). This coating is a Low VOC Silicone Roof Coating that is a one-component, moisture-curing system that can be applied to any existing concrete, metal, granulated cap sheet, smooth BUR, and even a number of single ply roofing membranes.
The RCR system offers many advantages to building owners; The system is durable, waterproof, and COST EFFECTIVE.
Long-term protection is offered through the chemistry of the silicone. Silicone Coatings cure and cross-link by reaction with moisture in the air creating great adhesion between the coating and the substrate when properly cleaned. Due to the cross-link reaction Silicone cannot re-emulsify like acrylic coatings can when exposed to ponding water for more than a period of 48 hours, making them much more durable. Silicone coatings also superiorly withstand weathering, oxidation, and effects of ozone and ultraviolet radiation.
When applying a RCR the finished product should be seam free, making the new system waterproof for many years to come. Based on your needs and with our Certified Applicator License with our manufacturer, we can warranty your roof for 5,10,15, even 20 years! Not to mention a 50 year product warranty is included with your warranty.
It is obvious to all that a roof coating system is going to be much more cost effiiecnt than a complete tearoff and install. The real question is how do we compare to Acrylic Roof Coatings. Acrylic systems at first glance seem much cheaper due to their low material cost. The truth is there is much more material used and with more material comes more labor. All in all the two systems come out to be fairly close in price, but the Silicone is much more superior to Acrylic due to Acrylics being water based therefore running the chance of affecting the adhesion to the substrate when water resides on its surface for a period of time.
