Reflective silicone roof coatings act as a barrier between your roof and the elements. These coatings are great for so many reasons, so here are the top 3.
1. Reduced Cooling Bills
Roof coatings are very reflective and in turn lower roof’s surface temperature which will decrease your building’s interior temperature by an average of seven to 10 degrees.
A reflective roof coating when applied to roofs help reflect more sunlight from the surface reducing the amount of heat absorbed by the structure, which then translates into reduced energy cost.
The reflection of the ultraviolet and infrared sunlight from the silicone reduces the amount of heat absorbed by your roof which translates to reduced temperatures indoors as well.
2. Extended Roof Life
Roof coatings create a resilient barrier between the elements and your roof. Silicone roof coatings can go over virtually any type of roofing material and will withstand permanent ponding water.
In addition, guarding your roof from damaging sun rays, prevents UV damage, and reflects heat away from the roof’s surface. This keeps your roof’s integrity intact and prevents early replacement!
3.Tax Write Off
Applying a silicone coating to your current roofing material is considered maintenance, rather than a re-roof. This allows you to write off the entire cost of the application on your taxes!
