Silicone is gaining notoriety as the flat roof coating go-to material. A silicone roof coating offers numerous benefits including, leak-free protection, enhanced sustainability with UV protection, and improved design aesthetic. A silicone roof coating could be the best way to extend the life of your commercial roof for decades, with additional recoating applied as necessary.
Silicone is durable and flexible, offering superior protection from nature’s elements in wind, hail, and rain. It also provides UV stability, providing maximum long-term performance against weather and atmospheric conditions. UV stability is critical in Colorado, where the UV exposure to roof systems is extreme. Choosing a brighter color for your silicone coating will also help to reflect the sun’s rays.
A silicone flat roof coating can be applied over new spray-applied polyurethane (SPF) foam, EPDM, TPO, aged PVC, aged acrylic coatings, concrete, asphalt built-up roofs, granulated modified bitumen, and metal roofs.
Silicone coatings are the best material choice when a roof has ponding water, or a complex roof provides installation issues for a conventional membrane roof.
