Deciding to replace your roof is often one of the biggest financial decisions a facility manager can make in a year. A roof replacement is often put off and ignored for many years because it is both very expensive and quite a headache to manage. Many times, roof repairs are made rather than replacing the whole roof. This seems like a decision that will save time and money when it is made, but it often leads to more unnecessary repairs and the roof still needs to be replaced.
Silicone Coating: The Inexpensive Roof Replacement
Silicone coatings can be applied via spraying or rolling methods to nearly any roofing substrate. The coatings rarely need primers as they have been formulated to adhere to many different substrates. In the rare cases that primer is needed, the primer application is very simple. This means the coating can be applied to any roof quickly and easily.
Once the coating is applied, it provides a 100% leak-free roofing system. If your roof is leaking and you are considering making roof repairs or an entire roof replacement, consider applying our silicone coating to the roof. It costs significantly less than tearing out the existing roof and replacing it with a completely different roofing system. There is no time lost due to old system tear-out, and silicone is one of the easiest roof substrates to maintain. It can simply be recoated every 10-15 years to remain under warranty. There is never tear-out required with silicone coatings.
Silicone Coating: The Effective Roof Repair
Many facility managers choose to repair their roof rather than replace it when they are experiencing problems. Rather than spend the money for a full replacement, they choose to spend less and make smaller repairs.
These repairs often patch the problem, but they are not long term solutions. The roof will leak somewhere else or many times in the same spot again. Rather than making these small repairs to save a few dollars, it would often be more prudent for the facility manager to apply silicone coating and replace the waterproofing properties of the roof the first time.
