WILL YOUR SILICONE COATING ARRIVE ON TIME?
Once your silicone coating has been manufactured, stored, and purchased, the manufacturer now has to get the material in your hands. This is the final piece of the puzzle in choosing a silicone coating manufacturer: how quickly can they get it out of their factory, and how quickly can they get it to you?
Material Production Time
The only way your silicone coating manufacturer can get material to you is by making it when you order it, or making it in advance, storing it in inventory, and shipping it to you when you order it. Shelf-life can be a problem with inventory, so they may not always have enough inventory for your order. In these cases, it’s important to know that they can produce what you need quickly enough to get it to you. Does your manufacturer have a fast enough production time to get you the material when you need it?
Product Delivery Time
Once they’ve produced the material and put it out the door, the next question is how long will it take to get to you? If you’re in LA and they’re in Boston, you’ve got a pretty long transit time that you have to wait for. When you choose a silicone roof coating manufacturer, make sure their plant is close to where you operate, or they have storage facilities nearby. If they don’t, you will never be able to get material in a rush.
As long as you plan your orders in advance and keep a buffer time period between when you need the material and when you order it, this isn’t a big problem. However, as soon as you have a rush order where you need to get on the roof quick, you’ll want to know your silicone roof coating manufacturer has the capabilities of getting you the material quickly.
