Roof Sealants and Coatings | Benefits of sealing vs. replacing roofs
Nobody wants to think about their roof. But when your roof becomes weathered and begins to leak, it can quickly become an issue, putting your property at risk and reducing its value substantially.
In the past, a damaged roof used to require a full or partial replacement. But there are now more effective ways to handle weathered and leaking roofs, and perhaps the best is known as a silicone roof coating system and roof sealant.
The alternative to a full roof replacement
Replacing a roof can be incredibly expensive. When damage has started to occur, often the entire roof needs a full replacement with new roofing materials. The hours and labor involved can be substantial and spot fixing certain areas with traditional roofing material can often lead to more damage.
Rather than spend potentially tens of thousands of dollars on a new roof, you may want to consider a silicone coating. Silicone roof sealants have numerous advantages over replacing an entire roof, including:
- Performance – Silicone sealants close damaged roofs using a long lasting silicone material that coats and seals the roof damage thoroughly.
- Cost – Silicone roof coatings are inexpensive and can save you money by preventing a roof replacement. In some cases, these sealants can extend the life of your roof by 15 to 20 years, allowing you to wait on additional roof repairs with no repercussions.
- Environmentally Friendly – Silicone roof sealants use no chemical solvents, have a high flashpoint (meaning fewer fires), and reduce the waste that comes from regularly replacing a roof.
Overall, these silicone roof coatings are a smart financial choice and improve the life of your build. If you have a commercial property in Central Ohio that may need silicone roof sealant, click here or contact Magnus Construction today at 614-886-2366.
