What are silicone roof coatings?
Looking for a way to protect or repair your existing roof? A silicone roof coating from Fiddler will fit the bill perfectly.
Silicone roof coating is applied to the surface of a roof to protect it from the elements and extend its lifespan. The main benefit of silicone roof coating is its durability and flexibility; it can withstand extreme temperatures and remain pliable in all sorts of weather conditions. These qualities make it ideal for protecting flat roofs in New Mexico’s variable (and sometimes harsh) climate.
What’s the difference between roof sealant and silicone roof coating?
Roof sealant and silicone coatings are both used to protect and seal roofs, but they have some key differences.
Roof sealant is a type of liquid coating that is applied to the surface of a roof to seal small cracks, gaps, and other types of minor damage. It is used as a repair material and is not intended to provide long-term protection to a roof. Roof sealant is commonly applied to roofs in good condition to help prevent leaks, water damage, and small damages from becoming worse.
Silicone is a thicker, more durable coating that is applied to the surface of a roof to provide long-term protection against weathering and damage. It is often used on older roofs that are in need of repair and/or are past their useful lifespan.
The major difference between the two is that roof sealant is a short-term repair material that is used to seal small cracks and gaps, while silicone roof coatings are a more durable and long-lasting solution that is used to protect and extend the lifespan of a roof.
What are the advantages of a silicone roof coating?
There are several advantages to using silicone roof coatings on your home or business especially if you have a flat roof. The benefits of silicone roof coatings are:
- They are extremely durable and can last up to 25 years. They are resistant to UV radiation, extreme temperatures, and other types of weathering.
- They are energy efficient by reflecting solar heat, which can help reduce energy costs by keeping a building cooler in the summer.
- Silicone provides excellent waterproofing properties and can help prevent leaks and water damage to a roof.
- These coatings provide excellent adhesion to a variety of existing roof surfaces without the need for removal of the old roof. It is also very low maintenance.
- They are made from a type of rubber that is derived from natural resources, making them an environmentally friendly choice. It also increases the efficiency of solar panels and is a great option if you want to harvest rainwater.
Overall, silicone roof coatings are the most durable, energy-efficient, and low-maintenance choice for protecting a roof.
