CAN YOUR ROOF SURVIVE LONG ENOUGH TO SUPPORT A SILICONE COATING?
Because of the way our system is designed, it doesn’t add any structural integrity to your roof and it doesn’t repair or improve the strength of your building. Our coating is applied directly to your existing roof surface and is only as strong structurally as the roof that is already in place. Sure, our coating provides great waterproofing properties and comes with a warranty, but that isn’t very valuable if you don’t have a structurally sound roof underneath the coating. If the roof is sagging, shifting, and falling apart, the coating will adhere to the roof and sag or shift with the roof, rather than holding the roof in place as a new roof or repairs to the roof might do.
Adopting the Properties of What It Adheres To
Our silicone coatings are designed, formulated, and manufactured to develop an extremely tight grip on whatever surface they are installed over, and that surface needs to be a structurally sound roof. That is one of the great benefits of our system, the fact that in almost any situation, if you apply it to your roof, it will hold on. Our coatings are tenacious and it takes a lot to remove them from a roof. However, one downfall of holding on to a roof so tightly is that if the roof a coating is applied to sags, shifts, or caves any amount, the coating is going to move and go with the roof wherever it goes. It isn’t going to support the roof and ad any strength to it, it’s just going to hold onto the roof and move with it.
Make Sure You Have a Structurally Sound Roof to Keep Your People Safe
If you’re roof isn’t structurally sound, you need to make sure that you get it to a point where it is safe and secure and those inside aren’t in danger. You should only apply silicone coatings to a roof that you expect to last and perform well for 5+ years.
Silicone coatings can be applied and will adhere to almost any roof, but it is crucial that you ensure the roof is in good condition prior to installing the coating. Our coatings, and any other coating out there, do not add any strength to a roof. They are not a standalone system, and if your roof isn’t sound before a coating is installed, it won’t be structurally sound after the coating is installed, either.
