When a commercial roof has damage, the only options are not multiple repairs or replacement of the entire system. There is a third option – restoration!
Restoring your roof can include various options. One of the favorites at Definitive Roofing and Specialty Coatings is the silicone coating system. Whether your roof is large or small, sloped or flat, our silicone roof coatings will address leaks, weatherproof your roofing structure and improve its overall performance.
Benefits of Silicone Roof Coating
Silicone coatings are ideal for use on flat and low-sloped roofs including metal, single ply, BUR, and modified bitumen roofs. The key advantages of silicone are:
Cost savings: Applying a silicone roof coating is significantly cheaper than completely tearing off your roof and installing a new one. No removal is required as long as the roof substrate is dry and stable.
Durable: Silicone coatings are flexible yet permanent and won’t deteriorate, chalk or crack when exposed to harsh UV rays.
Lower energy expenses: Silicone coatings have an incredible ability to keep your facility cool. That’s why they’re known as cool roofs. Their white color reflects harmful UV rays, reducing energy consumption by 35% or more. In addition to improved comfort, you’ll see a drop in your cooling costs, as well.
Extends roof lifespan: Silicone also extends the life of your commercial roof by protecting it from harsh weather, mold, mildew, and staining. Warranties come in 10 to 20-year increments.
Water protection: Premium silicone systems fill cracks, seams, and other vulnerable parts of the roof, creating a seamless, monolithic membrane that withstands ponding without softening.
Fast application: Unlike roof replacement, the application of a silicone coating restoration can be accomplished quickly, with little impact to your business operations.
Our Silicone Application Process
Understanding how the system works is important for good business management.
- We inspect the roof to see if the insulation or substrate is dry or saturated.
- Your roof’s surface is then power washed to remove dirt and contaminants.
- A primer is applied, if needed.
- Membrane seams are reinforced.
- Minor repairs are completed, if necessary.
- Coating is either sprayed or rolled onto your roof’s surface.
- Detailed inspection to verify the quality of repairs and application.
- Final warranty is issued.
