Roof coatings are a relatively new roofing product, having been in use for approximately 4 decades. They have only recently come into the mainstream roofing market.
Coatings were originally used by spray foam roofers who had to coat their foam with something to protect it from the sun. As silicone coatings were used on foam, roofers realized how great of a product they were. Roof experts began experimenting with coating over top of other roof surfaces, such as metal or EPDM. They soon realized that silicone coatings could provide the same protection to these new roofing materials that they were already providing to foam. Thus, the Restoration Coating market was born.
There are many different types of roof coatings used in roof restoration projects, but we believe silicone roof coatings are the most effective. They cost more than most other types of coatings, but that is because they outperform the others. When you purchase and apply silicone roof coatings from Progressive Materials, you aren’t getting a comparable product to acrylic or other coatings available. Check out these advantages that silicone roof coatings hold over other types of coatings.
