RECOAT: CAN A ROOF SYSTEM REALLY BE THAT SIMPLE?
A recoat, or recoating your roof, is basically when you go over your old roof that has already been coated with silicone and applying a new coat of silicone to create a better and longer lasting roof. There is a little bit more to it than that, but that is the gist of the process. Recoating also acts as a new barrier for your roof as well. This process is actually very simple and comes with many great benefits that will save your company money now and even in the long run.
One great benefit to recoating is the extra protection that it creates, such as waterproofing. Once your old roof has gone through its initial life it may start to sag and allow ponding water to develop; with a new recoat, your roof will resist ponding water because the silicone, once cured, is impervious to water. This will allow no leaks in your roof, giving you more peace of mind on those rainy days.
A Worthwhile Warranty
Another great benefit of recoating is the life extension your roof receives. Not only do you get a brand new roof, but it also comes with a brand new warranty that lasts up to 20 years! Out of warranty roofs are much more costly to your company if you need to make repairs, so recoating your roof gives you an all new warranty and saves you money. Our warranty isn’t just copy and paste: we create each warranty specific for that roof, so if our material does ever fail, we take care of it and you won’t need to worry about getting scammed in the long run!
Reduce Energy Consumption
Making your roof reflective is also a great benefit to recoating. A reflective roof is energy efficient, which means you could save up to 25% on your energy expenses annually. Silicone coatings reflect the UV rays back into the atmosphere, rather than absorbing them, giving you a cooler building in the summer. Not only does recoating with our silicone give you a more energy efficient building, it is eligible for rebates or credits in some states. By putting a reflective coating on top of your roof, you can actually earn money, making this an easy choice as to why you should recoating your roof with silicone instead of some temporary roofing system.
Recoating your roof is easier, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly than tearing out and putting in a completely new roof. Although in some cases tearing out may be necessary, in most cases all that is required should just be maintaining the top coat of your roof, giving you a longer lasting roof and decreasing all the extra expenses that need to go into having a new roof put on. Recoating is much cheaper because it requires less labor, a smaller crew, and materials all while giving you a longer lasting roof and new warranty!
