silicone membrane waterproofs most roofs

Silicone coatings weatherproof your roof for decades for a fraction of the cost of replacement.energy_star

  • Materials and application are typically 50% - 75% less expensive than roof replacement.
  • Provides decades of no-maintenance protection.
  • White silicone coatings are excellent infra-red reflectors, which keep the roof cool and increase building energy efficiency.
  • Most roofs can be cleaned, prepaired and coated for less than $2.50 / square foot.

 

Silicone polymers can be applied to most existing roofs.

Most roofs can not only be saved, but made better than new with the application of a simple and inexpensive silicone coating. The application process is clean and fast so you can carry on with business while the silicone is applied.

  •  silicone breathable membraneEliminates the need to tear off & replace roof.
  • Can be applied to most roof surfaces, even those in poor condition.
  • Provides a seamless, durable coating.
  • Waterproof - standing (ponded) water is no problem.
  • Maintains flexibility at extreme temperatures (-100°F to 500°F).
  • Reflective white color option reduces cooling costs.
  • Unaffected by ozone and UV.
  • Breathable membrane prevents moisture entrapment.
  • Protects underlying roof.
  • Does not support mold or mildew.
  • Excellent hail and impact resistance.
  • Solvent-free material is virtually odorless.
  • Saves up to 75% in application and maintenance costs compared to traditional roofing methods.

Applied Demo

We’ll apply silicone sealant to a 2’x2’ section of your rooftop.  You can see and feel the coating and measure the difference in temperatures yourself.

The Clear Choice

skylightIn most roof top applications we use a brilliant white silicone because the infra-red barrier is desired. However, in the case of leaky skylights, vents or other areas where you want to seal it yet still see through it, we use a clear silicone sealant or glazing.

Common applications for clear silicones:

  • Skylights - In the intense ultra-violet bombardment and vast temperature changes of the Front Range, it's not a matter of if a skylight will leak, but when.· Usually it is not the window of the skylight that fails but the sealant around it.·Clear silicones are an ideal, affordable way to fix the problem without replacing the skylight.· Silicone does not break down under UV and remains waterproof and flexible even at extreme temperatures.
  • Integral or trough-style gutters - Trough gutters pose many of the same problems as flat roofs. Any leak in the trough can cause damage far from the source, making it practically impossible to locate leak.·We coat the entire trough with a clear or pigmented silicone that polymerizes in place, making a continuous waterproof membrane. It can be applied directly to metals, EPDM and other common substrates.
  • Visible Vents
  • Known leaks on pitch roofs

pigment

Color

Silicone roof coating is a brilliant white which can be tinted with inorganic pigments. Unlike tints and dyes, pigments are unaffected by ultra -violet and never fade. Keep in mind however, the darker the color, the less IR reflection.

 

Traction

granules_boardThe silicone membrane is slick when wet. In areas that will have foot traffic in all weather, such as equipment service walkways and decks, we apply traction materials to the final silicone coating before it cures. Sand is a popular and inexpensive solution which costs less than $0.10 / square foot.

Synthetic rubber granules are used for traction, sound dampening and visual appeal. With similar durability properties and UV resistance, they partner perfectly with silicone polymer coatings.
