Over the last few decades, hundreds of millions of square feet of single-ply, metal and asphalt based roofs have been installed. These were all thought to be great roofing systems, and they all have individual strengths, but also have one major flaw: they have to be torn out and replaced.
Silicone Coating: The Easy Roof Replacement
Now that silicone coating has been developed and perfected, these roofs don’t need to be replaced. Our Silicone Roof Coating Restoration (RCR) System is applied directly to your existing roofing system and provides it with a leak-free warranty for up to 15 years. By applying silicone coating, to your existing roof, it doesn’t matter what your substrate is, you now have the best roofing system available in our opinion.
Silicone Coating: Benefits
Thanks to Progressive Materials’ proprietary silicone formulation, our silicone coating holds the following benefits:
- Primer-free adhesion in most situations.
- Extends the life of the existing roof: concrete, modified bitumen, single-ply, metal roof panel, smooth BUR, all of them can be improved with silicone coating.
- Significantly lower labor and material costs over most other roofing systems.
- Seamless application, low on-going maintenance costs.
- Durable in extreme weather and resistant to ponding water.
For RCR projects, we prescribe our high solids, low VOC silicone coating. This coating is extremely versatile, and thanks to its special formulation, can be applied in excess of 40 mil sin a single coat without blistering.
Silicone Coating: Sustainability
The RCR system eliminates the need for tear-off and disposal of previous roofing system. This greatly decreases waste and landfill usage. Our silicone coatings also have lower toxic emissions during installation than most roofing systems. By reflecting sunlight and radiant heat, silicone coating also reduces energy costs by keeping the building cooler in the summer. Our silicone coating contributes toward LEED credits and is Energy Star rated.
