LIQUID ROOF INSTALLATION IS THE EASIEST ON THE MARKET
There are many different roofing systems out there, and most of them require an expert to install them on your building. Not liquid roofs. The liquid roof installation process is the easiest roof installation process in the industry. Other systems require extensive training, specialized equipment, large crews, and lots of time to be installed. That is not so with liquid roofs. Specifically, we’re going to examine the installation process of liquid silicone roofs in this post.
No Extensive Training Required
Silicone isn’t EASY to install, it takes practice and attention, but it is EASIER to install than most all other systems available. You don’t have to attend a week-long training course and work on a roof for 2 years before you know how to install silicone. It takes some practice, and you have to pay attention to what you’re doing, but anyone can learn how to install silicone. As long as you have an inspector or experienced applicator keeping an eye on your work, it won’t take long before you can become a very accomplished installer.
No Specialized Equipment
Many roofing systems require 10 different types of tools to be installed on a standard roof, not to mention the tools required for special installations! The equipment to install a silicone roof is extremely simple. An airless sprayer and a spray tip. Or if you want to roll, that’s even simpler – You only need a paint roller and a roller cover. You can use other tools, such as painters’ tape, caulk guns, and rags. Each of those can probably be found in the basement of your home right now. No specialized equipment means it’s an easy business for contractors to enter, and it means building owners don’t pay a high price for the equipment required to work.
No Large Crews
Liquid roof installation doesn’t require the large crews as other systems do. At a minimum, a silicone roof can be installed with a crew of only three workers. Someone on the ground managing the pumps, someone on the roof managing the hoses, and someone on the gun applying the material. Or, if you are rolling the coating, you can have a crew of only one worker! That means your labor costs are significantly lower than those of other roofing systems that require more workers.
No Slow Installations
Finally, silicone roofing is one of the fastest roofing systems available. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another roofing system that offers the same benefits of silicone while offering quick installation. Because the system is so simple, it can be installed much more quickly than nearly every roofing system. Foregoing the need for a primer allows silicone to cut out an entire step. Silicone is even faster than other liquid roof installation processes, such as acrylics, which require multiple coats.
Choosing a liquid roof installation for your building means you’ll be getting one of the fastest, safest, easiest installation processes available. Choose a silicone liquid roof, and you’ll see even more dramatic benefits.
