The coolest recent innovation in the low-slope roofing industry may be in liquid silicone roof systems. These systems are significantly more cost-effective ways to get an additional 20 years of life out of an older roof. Gaco makes our favorite type, the GacoFlex S20 roof coating series. It’s a top quality product, and best of all, the no dollar limit (NDL) warranties Gaco offers are phenomenal and very easy to understand.
They come in three different durations:
- 10-year NDL, the contractor applies 1.5 gallons per every 100 square feet, and an inspector evaluates after completion.
- 15-year NDL, the contractor applies 2 gallons per every 100 square feet, and an inspector evaluates after completion.
- 20-year NDL, the contractor applies 2.5 gallons per 100 square feet, and an inspector evaluates after completion.
Gaco inspectors are about as thorough as it gets. They examine the entire roof, looking for any improperly treated areas. They test as many samples as they need for proper thickness, and the inspector approves only after the entire roof is deemed to qualify.
The thoroughness of these inspections is unique in the roofing industry since the system doesn’t include multiple layers of varied material. This allows close examination of the depth and breadth of the system. If you pay for 2.5 gallons per 100 square feet for a 20-year NDL warranty with inspection, you can have peace of mind that the parameters needed for your roof to last 20 years are in place. And if it malfunctions within those 20 years, Gaco will have it fixed and pick up the tab in entirety.
