A Restoration Coating Can Eliminate Tear Off


Many people think that once their roof is old and worn out, they simply have to tear it off and replacing it with a completely new roof. This is true in some situations, but in others you can replace your roof without tearing it off, which saves you time and many. As we talked about in this post, one way to avoid the need to tear your roof off is by installing a spray foam roof on your building. This is basically putting in another roof over top of your existing roof. Another great way to replace your roof without tearing it off is to install a restoration coating, most commonly a silicone coating. We call this roof renewal or roof restoration, and it can save you a significant amount of money and time by avoiding tear off completely.

Installing a Restoration Coating

Restoration coatings are installed in a similar fashion to spray foam, which is to say that both materials can be spray-applied and are installed directly on the surface of the existing roof. However, that is about the end of the similarities. Restoration coatings, depending on the material you choose (such as acrylic or silicone), can usually be applied directly to the roof surface, many times without a primer. Once the surface is prepped, the coating is spray-applied directly to the roof surface and will cure on top of the roof.

Benefits of a Restoration Coating

Once a restoration coating is installed, you will receive many benefits from your new coating. Your new roof surface will be highly reflective, meaning you save money on your energy bill as your building doesn’t get as hot. You also have a seam-free surface that is much less likely to leak than most roofs with seams and fasteners. In almost every case, a restoration coating will actually outperform the roof that was in place before it was installed. You also receive a new warranty with your roof when you install a restoration coating, so you get a new roof without tearing off the old one, and sleep soundly as your roof is covered under warranty.
