Silicone Roof Coating

Silicone Roof Coating Restoration

At Florida Quality Roofing we only recommend and install roofing products that exceed minimum building requirements. We have a very strong commitment to provide environmentally sustainable solutions – leading in our industry with energy efficient roofing systems such as silicone roof coatings.

A silicone roof coating is a the top of our list for sustainability.

Silicone roof coating adheres to just about everything – it can be installed over concrete, wood, steel, metal and most existing roof systems, which saves on the expense of roof removal and landfill fees. Silicone is a great alternative to re-roofing, instead it is often considered a restoration.
