Gaco Roof Coating available NOW

Press Release                           
For Immediate Release   Sep 2012

Costly Flat Roof Problems Solved At Last

Deepcut Surrey based roofing supply and contractor company Tradecall Roofing Supplies has been appointed Surrey area distributor & approved applicator for high tech Gaco roof coating for flat & low pitched roofs, Finlock guttering etc.

Known as Gaco, a 100% Silicone Roof Coating, the bonds tightly, is applied by roller to form a completely seamless, waterproof membrane & is now available to home owners in Surrey and surrounding areas.

Company Managing Director, Dave Doolan, said “Gaco is ideal for our wet UK climate. It has been developed by 55 year old Gaco Western Corp in rainy Seattle USA several years ago to cater for the on-going global problem of leaking flat roofs. Being contractors since 1973 we’ve seen many roofing products come and go but this is one of the best we’ve come across so far”

Gaco is unique in that being 100% silicone, it is guaranteed to be impenetrable by water, even under permanently ponding water on a flat roof.

Because it remains flexible, it is ideal for a wide range of temperatures anywhere between -50c up to +50c without degradation & comes with a 50 year limited factory guarantee. Gaco can be applied to most clean dry, weathered roofs in temperatures ranging from  0c up to 50c.

The coating, suitable for most flat or low pitch roof surfaces including felt, asphalt, concrete, Finlock concrete guttering, steel, asbestos & plywood is applied as a two-coat process and is available in two shades, grey and white.

The grey is normally applied first with the white applied as the finish coat. This two-coat /colour process ensures that the right thickness of coating is applied.

According to Mr Doolan, a huge advantage of this product is that the white finish, unlike regular reflective roof paint which lasts a year or two, is a one - time only lifetime application, that reflects away over 80 per cent of UV light and the sun’s heat from the roof surface. This means that even on a hot day, roof surfaces etc coated with white Gaco will remain cool to the touch!

Although a rare event… when the sun does shine, it causes the roof to expand loosening joints, seams etc. a problem compounded when frost comes along because trapped moisture forces additional stresses on those joints, seams etc. These expansion / contraction movements are the main reason we get problems on flat roof and when those stresses / movement are prevented by Gaco’s reflective properties, that damage is completely prevented.

Doolan added, “The reflection of heat away from the roof also makes the building underneath more comfortable in warmer weather, thereby avoiding need for cooling fans or other air conditioning”.

Another benefit claimed is because the coating material is made from silicone it resists the accumulation of dirt and growth of mosses, meaning roof stays clean for longer.

“Depending on your skill levels of skills & following safe working practices” Mr Doolan added “it can be self-applied, or our trained, fully insured operatives can apply it for you.”

“Gaco is available in two colours, grey & reflective white, & the material, which requires two coats on flat roofs costing around £25 per square meter applied or £13 per square meter self-applied making it a highly cost effective alternative to other traditional methods” says Doolan. Finlock guttering can be fully refurbished with Gaco for £55 per linear meter.
