Improving Durability and Efficiency with Meyers Roofing Company’s Silicone Roof Coating Solutions

At Meyers Roofing Company, we are dedicated to delivering innovative roofing solutions that prioritize durability, energy efficiency, and environmental responsibility. Recently, we successfully completed a commercial roofing project using GacoRoof™ GR16 Series silicone roof coating, showcasing its exceptional performance and benefits for property owners.

About GacoRoof™ GR16 Series

GacoRoof™ GR16 Series is a single-component elastomeric silicone roof coating renowned for its ability to provide robust protection and energy savings. It meets ASTM D 6694 standards and is available in various colors, including Energy Star and Cool Roof Rating Council-compliant options, making it ideal for enhancing building efficiency and sustainability.

Project Overview

Our recent project involved applying GacoRoof™ GR16 Series to re-coat a commercial roof, aiming to extend its lifespan and improve energy efficiency. The property owner sought a solution that could withstand severe weather conditions while reducing maintenance costs and enhancing environmental sustainability. GacoRoof™ GR16 Series was chosen for its proven ability to resist UV radiation, ponding water, and temperature fluctuations.

Key Benefits of GacoRoof™ GR16 Series

  • Ponding Water Resistance: Silicone coatings, like GacoRoof™, are moisture-cured, ensuring they do not absorb additional water after curing. This feature makes them exceptionally durable against ponding water, preventing premature deterioration.
  • UV Protection: GacoRoof™ can reflect up to 80-90% of the sun’s UV rays, significantly reducing cooling costs during summer months and extending the lifespan of HVAC systems. Unlike other coatings, silicone maintains its integrity without degrading, cracking, or becoming brittle over time.
  • Flexibility & Weatherability: The silicone membrane created by GacoRoof™ is highly flexible and impermeable, capable of withstanding wind-driven sand, oxidation, and extreme temperatures. It accommodates thermal movement in large roof structures, maintaining structural integrity.
  • High Solids Content: With over 90% solids content, GacoRoof™ requires less material during application, saving on time and labor costs while ensuring uniform coverage and system integrity.
  • Environmental Benefits: GacoRoof™ formulations are solvent-free and have low volatile organic compound (VOC) content, meeting stringent environmental standards across all 50 states. They contribute to reducing carbon footprint and enhancing indoor air quality.

Application Process and Longevity

Before application, our team meticulously prepared the roof surface to ensure proper adhesion and durability. GacoRoof™ was applied in multiple coats to achieve the recommended Dry Film Thickness (DFT), ensuring a seamless and durable protective barrier.

  • Quality Assurance: The lifespan of silicone roof coatings, typically 10 to 20 years or more, depends on factors such as coating quality and application technique. High-quality formulations like GacoRoof™ withstand UV exposure, moisture, and temperature variations, providing long-term protection.
  • Application Technique: Professional application techniques, including thorough surface preparation and proper coating thickness, are critical to maximizing the lifespan and performance of GacoRoof™. Proper adhesion and coverage ensure effective protection against environmental elements.


At Meyers Roofing Company, we take pride in utilizing advanced roofing solutions like GacoRoof™ GR16 Series to enhance the durability, efficiency, and sustainability of commercial properties in Southern California. Whether you’re considering roof restoration, repair, or energy-efficient upgrades, our team is committed to delivering superior craftsmanship and cost-effective solutions.
