Roof Coatings

Roof Coatings in Braselton, GA

We install a Silicone Roof Coating system that creates a seamless membrane that will seal and repair existing roofs and protect against leaks. It will also protect your roof from repeatedly ponding water and the damaging effects of the most extreme weather conditions. 

Whether your roof is large, small, flat, or sloped, a silicone roof system provides a proven, guaranteed solution for renewing your aging roof. This product can be applied to virtually any existing roofing surface to create a seamless membrane that protects against the elements.

The advantages of using silicone:

  • A permanent and non-degradable solution that will not chalk or crack under harsh UV rays.
  • A seamless membrane is formed upon curing that withstands ponding water without softening.
  • A smooth surface is created that offers excellent resistance to mold, mildew, and staining.
  • Silicone reflects significant amounts of heat during the punishing summer months.
  • Insulates your roof by adding a non-porous barrier to the elements.
  • Sustainability easily outlasts old-fashioned roofing while also preventing the hassle and expense of tearing off an old roof and filling a landfill with it.
  • A reapplication at the end of the roof’s lifespan extends the manufacturer warranty without adding the bulk and weight associated with old-fashioned roofing.

Silicone Roof Coating Benefits

Let’s look at the benefits of silicone as a flat roof coating. What does it do that no other material can? First, it withstands ponding water – indefinitely. Because silicone coatings are not water-based like other coatings, they absorb no moisture. While some coatings can be reinforced with fabric to withstand a little ponding water, they are no match for silicone’s natural resistance to moisture.

Another benefit to silicone is that it doesn’t chalk off as other flat roof coatings as elastomeric and acrylic do. Silicone is “Non-sacrificial,” and as such it doesn’t slowly shed as time goes by. It will stay fully intact for the life of the roof. Thirdly, 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 is More Durable

Sun Damage and Bad Weather–A membrane coated with silicone, on the other hand, can stand up to the harshest UV rays without degrading, chalking, or cracking. This type of coating also resists oxidation, wind-driven sand, hail, and extreme temperatures.

Standing Water – Traditional coatings, cure as water evaporates after application. But, should water ever pool up on other roof coatings for two days or more (which can definitely happen around here), the coating will start to return to its liquid state and separate from the roof substrate. Not good. Silicone coatings cure and become stronger in reaction to moisture, further protecting your roof from the effects of standing water
