Product Description

GacoPro Roof Coating is a professional grade, 150% elastic, 100% silicone roof paint for flat and pitched roofs that can be applied year round and guarantees protection and waterproofing for 20 years. GacoPro Roof Coating is a single pack, moisture cured liquid coating that can be applied directly to the following surfaces without the need of a primer; aged/weathered felt, asphalt, EPDM, Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) & most other single ply membranes, asbestos, steel, plastisol, concrete, lead, WPB plywood (apply 3 coats), fibreglass, sprayed polyurethane foam, tar and gravel, modified bitumen, built up systems (BUR), cap sheet, torch down, most existing roof coatings and more.

GacoPro Roof Coating is easy to apply by brush, roller or spray and produces a protective coating to permanently protect against leaks, constant ponding water, and the damaging effects of severe weather making it also ideal for valleys, gutters, channels etc. on roofs.

Refurbishing a roof or gutter with GacoPro Roof Coating is economical, causes less disruption, is fast to carry out, and is environmentally friendly & energy saving. In many cases where a roof would otherwise require total removal and reinstallation GacoPro Roof Coating is able to extend the life of the roof by a minimum of 20 years. Furthermore, using GacoPro Roof Coating in Solar Reflective White will reflect over 85% of the sun’s rays, drastically reducing damaging thermal shock (expansion/contraction) which will in turn, further extend the life of the roof and help to reduce building cooling costs, saving energy.

Questions



questions DAVID on 12/06/2018
Question: 

I have a fiberglass roof about 22 years old. Should I start thinking about replacing roof or should I paint it with solar reflective paint? Thanks Dave

Answer: 

We can't advise on whether you need to replace your roof or not, you would need to refer to a local roofer for advice on that. However if the roof is found to be OK then GacoPro Roof Coating would be an excellent way of extending the life.

questions James sails on 17/02/2018
Question: 

Hi, you state that the white can reflect 85% of the sun's rays but can you tell me what the grey will reflect. Thanks.

Answer: 

We do not have any reflectivity factors for the grey, but the darker the colour, the more heat it will absorb which means that grey would be a lot better than black felt etc, but the white would ultimately be the most reflective.

questions james on 23/05/2017
Question: Can it be used:

1)over existing aluminium painted bitumen roof
