WHAT DO SILICONE ROOF COATINGS ACCOMPLISH
Because they are so new relative to most roofing systems, many building owners still don’t know the purpose of silicone roof coatings. They are unfamiliar with the system, and don’t understand the benefits or the purpose of spraying a liquid onto your roof. Well, throughout the evolution of the product, silicone roof coatings have emerged with four main purposes that they accomplish. Let’s look at the purpose of silicone roof coatings by examining what it is that they do.
Renew Old Roofs
The main purpose of silicone roof coatings is to renew and restore old roofs. They are an inexpensive alternative to roof tear-off and replacement. Installing a silicone roof coating on your building allows you to renew and extend the life of your roof, without investing a ton of money, or tearing off the old roof and sending all those materials to the landfill. Silicone roof coatings help the environment thanks to eliminating tear-off, and they help building owners because they are less expensive than other systems. Restoring old roofs is the main purpose of silicone roof coatings.
Cool the Building Down
Next, silicone roof coatings serve the purpose of reducing energy use in your building. Their reflectivity means the sun doesn’t heat up the inside of your building like it once did. This means you don’t have to spend as much on cooling your building down, you run your AC less, and you spend less money on electric. Reducing the amount of energy you use again saves you money as the building owner and helps the environment by reducing energy consumption. Starting to see a pattern?
Repair Your Leaking Roof
Is your roof reaching an age where it’s still in good structural condition but is leaking in more places than you’d like to repair? A common course of action is to make repairs to each and every leak in the roof, which is very time consuming and can be expensive. A better solution is to install a silicone roof coating over the entire roof surface and eliminate all leaks now and for the next 20 years. Stop chasing your tail making endless repairs, install a silicone roof coating and be done with it!
Provide a Renewed Warranty
Many roofs outlast the warranty they received when they were installed. Once your warranty runs out, you’re on the hook for all repairs and improvements to the roof! That can cost you a boatload of money unless you get extremely lucky and don’t have any repairs or make on your old roof. A silicone roof coating can go over top of your structurally sound roof and provide you with a new 10, 15, or 20 year warranty. This is an inexpensive option that allows you to get your roof back under warranty and avoid paying for repairs for the next 20 years.
Silicone roof coatings offer many benefits to building owners, but the four above are some of the core purposes of coatings. If you fit into any of the categories above or have any of these problems, give us a call today.
