The Benefits of Silicone Roof Coatings
Silicone roof coatings have been the chosen high-quality roofing material for some time now, yet most homeowners and business owners are unaware of the benefits such coating offers. Many building owners still believe that silicone roof coatings do not warrant the high cost of installation, but the numerous benefits continue to grow, and more owners are choosing it as their preferred roofing material.
Clear Cut Benefits
One of the most significant advantages of silicone roof coatings is the higher solids content included in the material. This effectively means we can apply the coating in a thicker single coat without compromising quality or effectiveness once the substance is cured. The saves exponentially on labor costs and time spent on the roof itself.
Another clear benefit of silicone roof coatings is the lack of a primer requirement. Typically, silicone coating can be applied to an existing roof with just a simple power washing beforehand. We won’t need to use a primer in most cases. Again, this cuts down on the overall installation cost and the time spent on the roof, which in turn cuts down on potential injuries or expenses.
One of the biggest downfalls of many roofing materials these days is standing water, which causes damage to the equipment and your home or business. Silicone coatings form an impermeable membrane that can easily resist water better than any other type of coating currently on the market. This allows the coating to adhere to the roof and remain leak-free even under extreme pressures from standing water. There may be wear and tear over time, but we can easily recoat over such occurrences.
