As far as roof coatings go, we believe that there is one material that stands far and above all the rest: silicone. Silicone roof coatings are not only superior to other roofing systems, such as metal panels or asphalt shingles, but they are also superior to other roof coatings in the same roofing system family. For instance, acrylic roof coatings have been a very popular roof coating for quite some time, yet they are really only favored by so many because of their price. The only real selling point acrylic coatings have to offer is that they are cheap – both in price and in material and performance. Silicone coatings are far more UV reflective, among other benefits, than acrylic coatings.
