Silicone Roof Coatings, like GacoRoof by Firestone Building Products, can create a seamless membrane to protect and extend the life of your flat roofing system.
100% Silicone roofing products can give you an almost lifetime barrier against future leaks and protect your building from ponding water and future severe weather. Silicone is known to outlast acrylic, urethane, and asphalt for roofing applications.
While roof coatings are available in a variety of colors, the most common color is white for its reflectivity features.
There is no primer required for many 100% Silicone roof coating products which saves you time and money when applying. The product will adhere to most surfaces, including cap sheets, modified bitumen, built-up, metal, and more.
Unlike other roof coatings that lose their flexibility over time, a silicone roof coating will stay flexible and maintain its adhesiveness. The product won't soften, bubble, or degrade under ponding water or severe weather. The coating remains unaffected by harsh UV rays and extreme temperatures.
Another way you can save money, while extending the life of your roof, is that you do not have to tear off the existing roof system in most cases. There may be prep work to get the surface prepared for adhesion, but costly tear off work can usually be saved.
Additionally, many 100% Silicone roof coatings carry longer warranties, up to, and including 50 years from the manufacturer of the product.
