A great alternative to roof replacement is an energy-efficient silicone roof restoration. This project is an example of how successful a silicone restoration can be both cost-effective and energy-efficient. In addition, this project was selected as a winner in the 2016 Spotlight Trophy for the Advancement of Roofing Awards (S.T.A.R.) in the sustainability category.
S.T.A.R.—Spotlight Trophy for the Advancement of Roofing is an awards program designed by the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association (FRSA) to recognize members’ unique and outstanding projects completed in the state of Florida.
Here’s what makes this project unique and award-worthy:
December 2015, the Property Manager of BellaMare Condominium (a 31 story high-rise in Miami) met with us on numerous occasions to discuss their aging, flat roofs. Taking into consideration the amount of rooftop units (RTU’s), other equipment (pipes, plumbing, water lines, chillers, etc), roof condition, economic value, and environmental sustainability, we recommended an energy-efficient silicone roof restoration as an alternative to an entire roof replacement.
An energy-efficient silicone roof restoration can increase roof performance by reflecting sunlight, keeping the building cooler, and reducing air conditioning and energy costs—making it a sustainable, environmentally friendly solution. Additionally, a silicone roof restoration performs extremely well under ponding water conditions, adheres to most substrates which save on the expense of roof removal and landfill waste and contamination. It is also perfect for properties with an excess of RTU’s and other equipment as it is monolithic and all the penetrations can be flashed with the same silicone and fabric to reinforce.
In essence, through an energy-efficient silicone roof restoration the roof was restored and The Henry Company and Florida Quality Roofing gave BellaMare and additional 10 more useful, protective years, in which the buildings will also benefit from a cooler, more energy-efficient environment.
Additionally, we have recommended an annual maintenance plan to protect the investment of the new silicone roof and extra years of life.
An energy-efficient silicone roof restoration is a great option, however, not all roofs or properties qualify, to learn more about your options contact us today at 305-306-7663.
Most roof restorations will have a minimal impact on the environment and avoid landfill waste
Research indicates that restorations are becoming more popular because of their proven results
A roof restoration can cost significantly less than a re-roof
Restoring a roof with highly reflective energy efficient coating will reduce consumption by keeping the building cooler.
