The Best Possible Products
Firestone's Gaco S20/42 Roofing Material
Can Be applied to Almost Every Roofing Material
Firestone’s GACO S20/42 is a 100% silicone single-component, elastomeric install. When applied to your roof, a seamless membrane is created that locks out all of the elements. This roof install is frequently used to weatherproof roofs, or to renew an aging roof that still has some life left in it. It can seal leaks easily. This roof installation prevents costly roof replacements for your commercial or industrial building that may not yet be needed.
Without having to tear off your roof, you have just saved a ton of landfill waste and space on roofing materials that may not be recyclable. In addition, you just reduced your carbon footprint on the environment because now you do not need to install a new roof whose materials are made from processes that use oil and gas, not to mention the fact that the roofing materials are procured from the environment as well. When you invest in Firestone’s GACO S20/42 roof install applied by United Projects on your Albuquerque commercial or industrial building, you are saving the earth in many ways.
Highly Resistant to Mold, Mildew, and Staining
Firestone’s GACO S20/42 roof installation resists pooling water, which is what mold and mildew need to survive. They also need somewhat of a surface to grasp onto in order to thrive. In New Mexico’s warm climate, water on your roof should evaporate fairly quickly, and with no water sitting around for weeks, mold will have no choice but to look someplace else rather than your roof to survive. This roof install is also highly resistant to staining, so you won’t have to worry about a weathered, older look to your commercial or industrial roofing system.
Saves You Money
Since Firestone’s GACO S20/42 roof install can be applied over your existing roof, you don’t have to tear off your roof to install it. This saves you a lot of money in labor costs and time. In addition, since you have now added between 20 and 30 years to the lifespan of your roof, you have saved the cost of a roof replacement as well.
One other way that you are saving money is by the reduced utility costs you will reap. This is due to the fact that Firestone’s GACO S20/42 roof intall has a highly-reflective, glossy finish that will reflect sunlight, keeping your building much cooler in the long New Mexico summer months. The silicone install is also seamless, meaning any and all drafts will be eliminated as well. It is also UV-resistant and won’t crack or degrade from the sunlight like some roofing materials inevitably do.
Increases the Longevity of Your Roof
Depending on your roofing material, most roofs last decades and some can last a lifetime. That being said, there is a caveat — roofs can last decades with proper roof maintenance. While for the most part roofs like being left alone, they do require you to check on them every once in a while. United Projects in Albuquerque recommends annual roof inspections, especially if you’ve had a severe storm pass through, just to ensure there are no minor problems that could turn into major headaches down the road. Once a minor hole forms, it’s an open invitation to grow bigger, which you can be sure, this invitation will be accepted if not patched up.
By applying Firestone’s GACO S20/42 roof install, United Projects can renew your aging roof by sealing any minor leaks, and can extend the life of your new roof by adding another barrier to the elements. It’s like adding another layer when you go outside in the winter. You stay warmer by layering. Similarly, your roof will stay healthier by layering as well.
