Tampa Bay Condominium Silicone Roof Restoration

This Tampa Bay Condominium Silicone Roof Restoration is a great example of how successful a silicone restoration can be both cost effective and energy efficient. In addition, this project was selected as a First Place winner in the 2016 Spotlight Trophy for the Advancement of Roofing Awards (S.T.A.R.) in the Unique 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 Tampa Bay Condominium Silicone Roof Restoration project challenging, unique and award worthy:

  • The property is located next to the Gulf of Mexico in Indian Shores and there is a lot of wind.
  • There are ponding water areas.
  • There is no parapet wall which creates a safety hazard.
  • The roof experiences high foot traffic by other tradesmen and there is no onsite personnel to escort AC and tradesmen.

In order to ensure the success of this Tampa Bay Condominium Silicone Roof Restoration project we would need to take additional measures:

  • A silicone roof restoration is a better option because it withstands ponding water (versus acrylic coatings)
  • The best option is to roll the silicone rather than spray it to prevent over spray due to high winds on an 8 story building in front of the ocean.
  • We recommended they control roof access by placing a lock on the door, creating a log, adding warning signs and create a walk path to designate walk-able areas for tradesmen to prevent both roof damage and for safety.

    • All vehicles near the building were asked to move.
    • We rolled on the silicone product rather than spray it to prevent over spray.
    • Safety is our top priority: A four foot warning line was established along the perimeter of the roof and a Florida Quality Roofing safety monitor was on site to ensure the safety of our workers at all times. The safety monitor ensured all OSHA guidelines were followed as well as manufacturer’s Materials Safety Guidelines which is found on the Material Safety Data Sheet of the product we were applying.

    In essence, through the silicone roof coating restoration the roof was restored and Florida Quality Roofing along with The Henry Company gave Gulf Shores Condominium an additional 15 more useful protective years, in which the buildings will also benefit from a cooler, more energy-efficient environment.

    A 15 year maintenance agreement was also part of the contract to uphold Henry’s Gold Seal Warranty.

This project was selected as a First Place winner in the 2016 Spotlight Trophy for the Advancement of Roofing Awards (S.T.A.R.) in the Unique category.



A roof restoration can cost significantly less than a re-roof



Research indicates that restorations are becoming more popular because of their proven results



Most roof restorations will have a minimal impact on the environment and avoid landfill waste



Restoring a roof with highly reflective energy efficient coating will reduce consumption by keeping the building cooler.


South Florida Condominium Roofing

A Successful South Florida Condominium Roofing Project

Florida Quality Roofing was contracted to re-roof the shingle portion of four three story Florida condominium buildings (approx. 320 Squares) for Emerald Hills Country Club Condominiums. This condominium roofing project was a great example of our attention to detail, prior to accepting our proposal, The Board of Directors received many estimates with varying recommendations. However, surprisingly our proposal stood out more for for what we would not do than what we would. READ MORE

What is a Roof Restoration?

There are many definitions for roof restorations, but perhaps the most important thing to consider is that most low slope (flat) roofs have a lifespan. The lifespan of a roof will depend on the roof system, use of roof, and materials.

At Florida Quality Roofing we have extensive experience with roof restorations and have provided many roofs with significant years of protection while maintaining a watertight roofing system. The most common and cost efficient roof restorations for a flat roof is a silicone coating restoration.

Silicone coating roof restorations have been used for over 20 years and have the most success in humid climates like South Florida since they are moisture cured. They are also versatile and can be used on most roofing systems; single plies (EPDM, PVC, TPO), asphalt/modified bitumen, metal, concrete, etc.

We Are looking forward to hearing from you!
