One way to protect your roof is to use silicone roof coatings. This provides protection against water, dirt, weathering and heat. It also strengthens your roof and allows it to last much longer. By squeezing a longer lifespan out of your roof, the silicone coating will eventually pay for itself. It can also reduce heating and cooling costs in your home by trapping in air better inside your home and preventing extreme warm or cold temperatures air from entering through the roof.
This is a waterproof layer that coats onto your current roof and provides an environmentally friendly layer of protection. It contains no harmful byproducts for you to worry about, so you can ensure that your home and the surrounding area are safe. That really is a point of concern for many homeowners, as they are worried that they may be damaging the environment by using certain roofing sealants or coatings. If you use a high quality coating, though, then you don’t have to share that concern. You can rest easy knowing that the environment is not being negatively impacted and that your roof and property are being well protected.
How Silicone Roof Coatings Work
This is one of the most resulting coatings you can get for your roof. It is very strong and able to withstand a lot of abuse from weather, temperature changes and debris. It even protects against UV rays, offering radiation protection that fortifies your building and keeps you safe. It will deflect UVU rays and reduce heat absorption through the roof. This cools down your building and lowers your energy costs. That’s a great way to conserve the energy, protect the environment and pay less for your energy use. By protecting against weathering, this layer will also keep your house looking great. It protects the roof from discoloration and fading, ensuring a long-lasting look that you can be proud of. You won’t feel the need to replace or repaint your roof as often as before.
With most roof systems, you have to worry about water pooling and creating damage to your roof and your property. You may have to clean out our gutters, get rid of mold and look for signs of ponding water after a heavy storm. That’s not a problem with this roof protection layer. It does a lot of that work for you and keeps your roof safe and secure. While mold and mildew may form on the roof after a storm, the silicone membrane will prevent them from causing damage to your roof and the underlying layers.
It doesn’t take a lot to reapply the silicone layer either. Applying it the first time is easy enough, and to reapply it after it starts to wear is relatively simple and inexpensive as well.
