AN ACTUALLY-EASY-TO-INSTALL SYSTEM
Is the ability to quickly install a silicone roof coating yourself the greatest thing about this roofing system? Many roofing systems like to tout themselves as an “easily installed” system. They claim that they are fast and don’t require much labor to install, when really they are just slightly faster than last year’s model, so they claim to be easy and fast.
Well, silicone is not one of these systems. When you purchase a silicone roof coating from us, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to quickly install it on your customers’ roofs, or if you’re a building owner, that your contractor will be able to install it quickly. What is it about silicone that makes it so quickly and easily installed?
No Primer Required
This is basically taking the prep stage out of the roofing project. If you install any roofing system, there is always a significant amount of prep work that has to be done before you can install the actual roof. Whether this means you are installing a new roof deck to support the roof, or prepping penetrations to receive a coating, there is prep work to be done.
However, silicone roof coatings require no primer to adhere to almost all roofing systems, which significantly reduces the amount of prep work needed.
No Special Tools Required
When installing silicone roof coatings, special tools and equipment are not required to complete the job. Basically, the only tools needed are the same tools that would be required to paint a wall in your house: a paint roller, a roller cover, and a long handle to attach to the roller. Then, just dip the roller in the bucket and roll it onto the roof. That’s it!
You may want to carry a rag and a razor blade, but those are hardly special tools.
Silicone roof coatings are very easy to install and this is the reason for many building owners and contractors choosing to use them. If you’d like to learn more about silicone roof coatings, give us a call today.
