Why Install a Silicone Roof Coating?
Silicone is quickly becoming the go to material in the roof coatings market. Its benefits range from leak-free protection to improved aesthetic appeal of the roof to improved sustainability. When a silicone roof coating is installed, it is there for performance. These roofs are also highly sustainable, and could quite literally be the last roofing substrate you ever need with only a re-coating every 10-15 years.
The Benefits of Silicone as a Roof Coating
Let’s further look at the benefits of silicone coating. What does it do that no other material can? First, it withstands ponding water – indefinitely. Because silicone coatings are not water based, they absorb no moisture. Silicone roof coatings can withstand extreme temperatures, downpours and oxidation. Silicone coatings are better at protecting structures from ponding water than other coatings.
Another benefit to silicone is that it doesn’t chalk off as other coatings do. Silicone roof coatings are very durable, and don’t slowly shed as time passes. Also silicone doesn’t need to be reinforced with roof fabric, saving you time and money on installation. The last major benefit to silicone is that you need less of it than most other flat roof coatings. Silicone coatings are also very flexible and durable due to the high concentrate of solids. This composition of high solid requires less material and allows for a single application, saving time and labor.
