Fluid Applied Roofing

Use this free downloadable 3-part specification to specify Fluid Applied Roofing applied over existing metal roof systems.

What is Fluid-Applied Silicone Roofing?

It’s a cutting-edge solution designed specifically for protecting and extending the life of metal roofs. This innovative roofing technology involves applying a seamless, waterproof silicone coating directly over existing metal roof systems. Silicone, known for its impressive durability and weather resistance, forms a robust layer that shields the roof from the elements.

Why Choose Fluid-Applied Silicone Over Metal Roof?

Long-lasting Protection: Metal roofs are durable, but they are also prone to issues like rust, leaks, and corrosion over time. Combating these problems by providing a protective barrier that resists UV rays, temperature changes, and moisture—key factors that contribute to wear and tear on metal roofs.

Cost Efficiency: One of the biggest advantages of fluid-applied silicone roofing is its cost-effectiveness. Instead of completely replacing a weathered metal roof, applying a silicone coating can significantly extend the roof’s lifespan at a fraction of the cost. This makes it an economical choice for businesses and homeowners alike.

Ease of Application: Unlike traditional roofing materials, silicone coatings are applied quickly and with minimal disruption. This is especially advantageous for commercial buildings, where extensive downtime can lead to lost revenue. The application process is straightforward and can often be completed faster than other roofing methods.

Energy Savings: Silicone roof coatings reflect UV rays rather than absorbing them, which helps maintain cooler roof temperatures. This thermal reflectivity can significantly reduce cooling costs in warmer climates, making fluid-applied silicone roofing an eco-friendly option that can save money on energy bills.

Versatility: Fluid-applied silicone is highly adaptable and applied to almost any existing metal roof, regardless of shape or size. Its versatility makes it an ideal choice for complex roof configurations, providing a uniform and seamless protective layer.

Sustainability Benefits

In addition to its protective features and cost-efficiency, it contributes to sustainability. The longevity it adds to existing roofs reduces waste and the demand for new roofing materials, aligning with eco-friendly building practices.
