Deliver a rejuvenated roof without the need to replace the existing roof or make costly additions.
Complete roof replacement is no longer the only option a contractor can provide their clients; with Sikalastic® RoofCoat recover solutions contractors can offer savings to their customers by providing cost effective solutions by way of roof recovery. Now, contractors can offer building owners the ability to easily extend the life of the building’s roof without replacing it or making additions.
Extending the roof life by up to 20 years is as simple as cleaning, priming and coating. RoofCoat Polyurethane resins are easy to use, just open the bucket, dip with a roller and apply! RoofCoat Silicones and Acrylics only require minimal mixing.
Why tear off an old system when you have a cost-effective, greener alternative and can build watertight with a roof coating? Sikalastic RoofCoat recovers and can prolong the life of Mod-Bit, EPDM, TPO, PVC, Hypalon, and metal roofs. RoofPro is also excellent for Smooth BUR roof assemblies.
Roof coat systems available are:
Sikalastic®-626 and Sikalastic®-646 Lo-VOC— a cold liquid applied, highly elastic, aliphatic (UV resistant), single component moisture triggered polyurethane resin.
Sikalastic® -500 — a liquid applied, single component, silicone roof coating. Features include ultra high solids, rapid cure and Lo-VOC properties and it also provides superior UV energy star compliance.
Sikalastic® -500 Flash silicone coating – an enhanced high solids with excellent vertical hang and performs well under ponding water.
Sikalastic® -515 AC — a 100% acrylic elastomeric coating. Provides roof life extension and enhanced reflectivity.
Sikalastic® -515 FG — an acrylic flashing mastic to use for detailing and flashing with the 515 AC system.
With Sikalastic® RoofCoat recover systems contractors save time and money while offing their customers high value by providing cost-effective alternatives to roof replacement. With so many advantages, it makes sense that so many contarctors are saying “Don’t replace, recover!”
