Why GacoRoof?

1) GacoRoof has a 50-year limited warranty. GacoRoof will last as long as the substrate it is applied to. Acrylics, if they have a warranty at all, warranty only 3-5 years. One acrylic offers an 8-year warranty BUT you have to recoat every 3 years.

2) GacoRoof can withstand PERMANENT ponding water. There are no acrylics that will stand up to the stress of permanent ponding water without bubbling or adhesive failure.

3) GacoRoof can be applied in a wide temperature range (32-120 degrees F). Acrylics cannot be applied at temperatures below 55 degrees or above 90 degrees.

4) All acrylics require a primer coat. GacoRoof does not require any primer, sealer or patch compound.

5) GacoRoof does not require a recoat. Silicone is inert, and does not degrade or wear away. Acrylics require a recoat every 3-5 years.
