Silicone Restoration Program
Our silicone restoration program extends the life of your current roof and can save you the timely and costly need of a tear-off!
What does a silicone restoration offer?
A. 100% Silicone Roof Coating creates a seamless membrane to seal and repair existing roofs and permanently protect against leaks, permanent ponding water and the damaging effects of severe weather.
B. 100% SILICONE. The unique chemistry offers peace of mind for a lifetime! It outperforms and outlasts acrylic, urethane, asphalt and Hypalon® coatings.
C. REMAINS PERMANENTLY FLEXIBLE. will stay flexible and maintain adhesion, even under permanent ponding water or snow pack. Other coatings become brittle and begin to degrade over time.
D. PREVENTS COSTLY TEAR OFFS. By recoating your weathered you not only extend the life of your roof, you avoid the need for a time-consuming and costly tear off.
Modified Torch-Down Roofing System
Modified bitumen roofing systems, sometimes known as “mod bit” roofing, are made using an advanced version of asphalt roofing to help create a better seal and a more durable roof. This type of roofing has become popular with commercial buildings because of its strength and resistance to inclement weather. It can also be used for residential roofing, for low sloped roofs. There are a few different types of this roofing material that can affect it, such as making the material more flexible, or making it age better. Here we’ll examine some of the greatest benefits and drawbacks of this roofing system.
A. The material used in modified bitumen roofing is formulated to remain flexible even when it is freezing. Modified bitumen is, therefore, less likely to crack or create leaks when exposed to low temperatures. Home and business owners do not have to worry about this material becoming brittle and getting damaged during cold fronts.
B. easy to install, and effective. Also, the self-adhering property lowers the possibility of heat-related accidents occurring during installation of the new roof.
C. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are harmful gases that can be emitted from some paints used in roofing. A significant benefit to modified bitumen is that the material has very low VOC levels. These lower emission levels mean that the risk of health issues that can occur due to exposure to VOCs is also lowered.
D. The roofing material used with modified bitumen is fairly light compared to some other materials. Because of this the material does not absorb as much heat as others. This can help keep homes and businesses cool during the day, which can help reduce energy output for air conditioning and even help reduce strain on air conditioning systems.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) System
TPO roofing can be installed on both residential and commercial properties. Variations in color, such as white, black and light gray are available to meet the aesthetic preferences of property owners. While a white roof may seem to generate optimum heat-reflective and energy saving properties, TPO roofs are manufactured to be UV resistant no matter what color is opted.
A. Mold growth, punctures and tears, and the accumulation of dirt are practically non-existent with TPO roofing membranes. TPO roofs are flexible and allow for shifting or settling in the building. Even thermal expansions and contractions are readily accommodated by TPO roofing systems. Since algae and mildew growth is an unlikely possibility with TPO roofs, pressure washing is not required.
B. The lightweight sheets of TPO roofing membranes allow for ease during installation. The wider sheets also mean fewer seams require attention. Due to the quickness and ease of installation, property owners pay less when installing a TPO roof.
Building owners also have a choice in how the TPO roof is installed. Adhesives or direct fastening to the roof deck are dependable options. TPO roof membranes can be heat welded to areas such as those surrounding chimneys and similar roof protrusions.
C. Building owners choose TPO roofs because of the reflective nature of the membranes. The white, reflective materials surpass the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR requirements, while the gray, white and tan colored TPO roofs are featured with the Cool Roof Rating Council. During summer weather, air conditioning costs are significantly reduced with TPO roofing systems, as the building stays comfortably cool. The TPO roof also prevents the buildup of heat within the structure.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide.
A. Compared to other types of roofing, the cost of EPDM is generally very low. It’s also a great option that is commonly chosen for low-sloped roofs. While the contractor and manufacturer costs will vary, this material is mostly chosen by price-conscious building owners.
B. While the majority of EPDM roofs are black, they can also be white, allowing them to reflect UV rays and even reduce energy costs. They are compatible with rooftop gardens and solar cell arrays. This material is also lightweight, allowing it to adapt to any shape or style of the roof while providing the same advantages.
In addition, very little effort or materials are required to manufacture this material, and it’s 100% recyclable!
C. You can expect an EPDM roof to last around 20 years or longer, provided that it is installed correctly. In fact, new manufacturing formulas have allowed this material to become impervious to radiation and damage from UV rays. They are also resistant against wind and hail of up to 3 inches. You can also depend on them to be leak-proof, given that the material is fairly new.
D. EPDM is easily paired with polyiso insulation. As mentioned above, it also comes in white color. These two attributes mean that it is energy efficient. Properly installed, this material can be great for keeping out the sun’s heat as well as keeping heat in the building during colder temperatures. EPDM can also be coated to prolong its life and provide additional reflectivity and hence, greater energy efficiency. There are different material thicknesses to choose from, including 45, 60, 75, and 90 mil. The cost to install does increase for thicker materials. But regardless of the size, an experienced roofer, like Reliable Roofing, can install this for you.
Aluminum UV Resistant Coatings
A reflective surface for roofs, metal buildings, tanks and mobile homes. Formulated from refined asphalt, aromatic and aliphatic solvents.
A. Aluminum Roof Coating is designed to provide a reflective
surface for roofs, metal buildings, tanks and mobile homes. Aluminum
pigmented asphalt coatings can substantially reduce interior building
temperature and prolong roof service life
B. good for most climates, UV resistant, and cost-effective for a variety of roofs
C. fast setting, durable, resistant to ponding water, can be installed and will stay clean
D. moisture aids in the curing process, may not need a primer.
