Why To Choose Silicone Roof Coating Instead of Roof Replacement

Why Silicone Roof Coating?

As we all know, it is inevitable that as a roof ages, it weakens and becomes prone to leaks. For many years, the solution was to tear off the old roof and replace it with a new roof. This route is expensive, requires more time, and leaves the structure exposed to the elements as the reroof is taking place.

However, in most cases, replacement is not your only option. Here at Marlin Coatings, we offer all the products you may need to restore your current roof. Choosing to restore your roof using silicone roof coatings has many benefits.

Some of the main reasons to choose silicone roof coating instead of a roof replacement are:

Cost & Time  

For a fraction of the cost of a roof replacement, you can apply a restoration coating with our silicone products. Coatings can be applied to almost any substrate without requiring the old roof to be torn off which allows the installation process to be much more time efficient. Not to mention, since no tear-off is required that means the underlying structure will not be exposed to potential bad weather during a re-roof process. 

Energy Efficient

One of the key benefits of choosing silicone roof coating instead of a roof replacement is that they are highly UV resistant. Due to the reflectivity of silicone roof coatings, you will see noticeable energy savings as it reflects 88% of UV rays which will keep your internal temperatures down. Silicone is inorganic and will not break down after years of exposure to UV rays over time like some traditional roof substrates which makes it a great long-term solution.

Complete Waterproofing

A leaky roof can cause a lot of problems and stress. Silicone is a go-to solution since it is water resistant and will not break down or weaken when faced with ponding water. This allows the silicone to be a sustainable solution for the long term when grouped with all its other properties. Choosing a silicone roof coating restoration will give you peace of mind knowing that your roof is fully waterproofed when applied properly.
