The Benefits of a Silicone Coating for Commercial Roofing

Silicone Coating for Commercial RoofingThe roof on your shop or warehouse is the first line of defense against the weather and the last line of defense for heating and air conditioning. For those reasons, it must be totally weatherproof. Search the market for a reliable roofing solution, and you will do what so many other commercial operations have done and choose silicone coating.


At Shelby Roofing & Exteriors, we have completed a great deal of commercial roofing in St. Louis and developed this blog post to highlight a few significant benefits of silicone roof coating.


Before we discuss the benefits of silicone, let’s take a brief look at what it is. This is a rubber-like material that can be applied in a couple of ways, and both of them provide effective and long-lasting service. It is installed as a spray or rolled on to offer complete coverage. All that needs to be done before installation is a power washing to remove debris and create a fresh surface.


There are several key benefits of which you should be aware when you are considering silicone. First among them is that it seals cracks to reduce the risk of leaks. This smooth, seamless surface membrane keeps out dirt and debris and prevents mold and mildew from growing.


Silicone roofs are guaranteed for up to 50 years, and when it comes time to replace, all you need to do is apply a new coating. Finally, it can lower energy costs by helping keep an even temperature in your building.
