Roof Coatings: Why Recoat with Silicone

Recoating with silicone is the smartest option when deciding which coating to use. Silicone coating can be applied to virtually any existing roof that doesn’t need major repairs done to it, which makes for a quicker and easier process. This also saves you money since you won’t need to tear out the existing roof and put in a whole new one. You can take an old roof that has gone through wear and tear for 15 years and turn it into a brand new roof by recoating with silicone and not another coating.

Energy Efficiency

Silicone roof coating is also the most energy efficient. With a silicone coating, you could save up to 25% on annual energy expenses. Silicone coatings are also highly reflective, causing UV rays to bounce off of the roof and go back into the atmosphere rather than be absorbed by the roof which creates a hotter workspace for your employees. A reflective coating creates a cooler workspace which could lead to higher productivity for your company.

Stopping Leaks

Another reason why you should recoat with silicone is how effective it is against leaks. Some roofing systems are actually prone to leaks and constantly need to be patched up or completely redone. Why go through the headache of having a new roof put on that won’t be waterproof when you could have a silicone coating installed that will protect against ponding water and last up to 20 years?  And if for some reason our product happens to leak, we will replace it for you at no additional cost because we value our customers and want to give them the best experience and warranty.

One-Coat Application

Unlike other coatings, silicone coatings only needs one coat, making the processes of installing and recoating much easier.  Silicone adheres to itself so there isn’t a reason to add a primer in most cases. This also cuts back on the costs because it will take a smaller crew, thus giving you a smaller labor bill.


This is just a few of the many benefits that come with recoating with silicone, but it gives you a good idea of why you should choose silicone over other coatings. If you’re still unsure of our silicone coating, give us a call and we would be more than happy to talk with you about our products and why we believe our coating is superior when compared to any other.
