Elkhart Ind.-based Heng’s Industries has introduced the GacoRoof silicone roof system that installs directly over the existing EDPM, TPO, PVC, aluminum or fiberglass roof.
According to a press release, Heng’s GacoRoof is a 100% silicone roof coating that creates a seamless membrane to seal and repair existing roofs, while permanently protecting them against leaks, ponding water and the damaging effects of severe weather. Silicone offers flexibility, strength, lack of black streaks and easy cleaning as the GacoRoof does not require any maintenance or special cleaners, and will not break down over time.
In addition, the GacoRoof is applicable for use on flat, radius and sloped roofs including travel trailers, fifth-wheels and motorhomes.
The renewing process can be accomplished in one day, according to the company. The system is simple to install – just clean, seal, coat and top coat – and the finished product will be 22-24 mils in thickness. The bright white finish will reflect 90% of the sun’s rays, keeping the RV cooler in the summer, and improving A/C efficiency. Materials are warrantied for 25 years.
