To meet high demand, silicone is quickly becoming the go-to material in the flat roof coatings market. Benefits include leak-free protection, improved aesthetic and stability upon installation. Simply put, when a silicone roof coating is installed, it is there for purpose and for performance.
There are several benefits for getting a silicone roof coating added after your roof repair or roof restoration:
- Water resistant: a silicone roof, much like its counterparts, withstands “ponding” water and does not absorb any moisture such as during a storm (and because of it’s natural resistance to water, the surface can become slippery)
- Permanent standing: does not chalk off
- Efficient application: you need less of it than most other flat roof coatings to cover the same area, and does not require multiple coatings
As most roof coatings and roof re-coatings from C&J Roofing, a silicone roof coating can prolong the lifespan of your commercial roof for 10-15 years with proper maintenance and roofing services when needed. A silicone roof coating must be applied to a completely dry roofing surface, since any sign of moisture can compromise the application of the silicone and cause damage early on to the membrane.
Do Not Put Your Roof In Harms Way Of Serious Damage
While silicone roof coating does not require multiple initial coats or reinforcement, there are certain instances where a cover may be necessary if you notice damage on your silicone roof coating. If you notice any loose seams within the structure, you will want to reinforce them with tape or fabric prior to contacting C&J Roofing for a silicone roof coating, or a roof re-coat. Additionally, if you have undergone a roof restoration or replacement, and are interested in seeing how a silicone roof can extend the quality of your roofs life, C&J Roofing is here to help with our expert roofers.
