WHAT IS YOUR REASON FOR BUYING SILICONE ROOF COATINGS?
As more and more people install silicone roof coatings on their commercial building, we hear more stories of why people thought the coatings were worth the investment, and why they tell their colleagues who need a silicone roof coating that it is worth it. We are going to run a multi-part blog series over the next couple weeks aimed at exploring why our customers choose silicone. Below are some of the reasons that our customers give as to why they need a silicone roof coating. Do any of these responses resonate with you and your interest in the product?
Why You Need a Silicone Roof Coating
1 – You care about the environment.
If you fall under this category, you know how detrimental roof removal and installation can be on the surrounding environment. You believe silicone can eliminate some of this pressure put on the environment. You need a silicone roof coating because you want to do your part.
2 – You don’t want to make repairs often.
Once you install your roofing system, you want to “set it and forget it”. You don’t want to be back on the roof in 2 months making repairs; you just want your system to work.
3 – You’re long-term oriented.
You don’t believe in quick fixes and you don’t fall for scams. You want a quality roof product that will last for years to come after installation, maybe even after you retire. That is why you are so interested in silicone roof coatings.
4 – You can’t afford a break in operations.
Your plant runs at high capacity and you can’t shut it down for weeks to install a new roofing system. You have heard that silicone roof coatings can be installed from outside your building without interrupting operations, and that is correct. You need a silicone roof coating to keep your facility up and running.
5 – Your roof has ponding water issues and you can’t afford to re-roof.
If your roof is experiencing ponding water, it can be a very expensive problem to fix. As long as the structural integrity of the building is fine, you can coat the roof during a dry period and our silicone coatings resist ponding water.
6 – Your building is extremely hot in the summer.
Are you spending a ton on your AC in the summer to try and keep your workers moderately comfortable and happy? Stop the heat problem before it starts by coating your roof with a reflective silicone roof coating.
7 – You want to cash in on your state’s reflective roofing rebates.
Many states offer rebates or credits to building owners that install reflective roof coatings over top of their building. If this is the case in your state, many times you can install silicone roof coatings for even cheaper than normal thanks to the rebates. You need a silicone roof coating because you need to find those savings in the rebates.
8 – You can’t afford a full roof replacement.
Your roof is in need of replacement, but you can’t afford to replace it. If your roof structure is still sound, coating the roof with silicone is a cost-effective alternative to replacement.
9 – You have difficult or permanent roof features to work around.
Some buildings have things like solar panels installed on the roof surface which make re-roofing extremely difficult. Roof coatings can be installed in difficult areas thanks to their versatility, which saves time, money and headache. If you have a very complex and difficult roof system, you need a silicone roof coating to help make your job easier.
10 – Your existing roof is out of warranty.
Your roof may still be in good condition but if it is out of warranty, a roof coating will keep you dry for 10-15 more years without worry because they come with a full watertight warranty when bought from Progressive Materials.
If you can relate to any of the 10 reasons above, silicone roof coatings may be the best system available for your building. Contact us today if you’d like to learn more or speak to a sales rep about getting a coating on you roof.
