Flat Roofing/Mule-Hide Products/Gaco Roof Coatings

When choosing a roofing company, there are so many important factors to consider that the decision can sometimes be difficult. This is especially true when it comes to commercial flat roofing contractors. However, when you find a roofing company with years of experience, all the right qualifications as well as a reputation for quality, the decision becomes easy. Along with the product lines they choose to use to make it the professional job you are expecting.

Waterproofing and Insulating Your World

Gaco Western was founded in 1955 with its roots in technology and product innovation. The Gaco family of brands offer best-of-class solutions for a variety of commercial, industrial, and residential applications including specialty coatings for roofs, pedestrian and traffic decking, and spray polyurethane foam insulation.

Silicone/GacoElastomeric/Silicone Roof Coating

This high quality, single component, elastomeric coating provides a long-lasting waterproof membrane on a flat or a sloped roof. The coating is made from silicone, allowing for superior protection against permanent ponding water, UV rays and temperature extremes. Due to the unique chemistry of GacoElastomeric, it can be rained on after 2 hours and won’t wash off the roof. GacoElastomeric adheres directly to the substrate and does not require a primer. Use it to protect large and small buildings, homes, garages, patio covers, sheds, barns, mobile homes, RVs and more.

Two gallons of GacoElastomeric provides the same coverage as a 5-gallon pail of most acrylic elastomerics, plus the added benefits and protection of a Gaco Silicone:

Better coverage - Higher solids than acrylics, more coating stays on the roof. One 2-gallon container of GacoElastomeric covers 100 sq. ft.

Cures fast - Can be rained on after just 2 hours and won’t wash off the roof.

Withstands ponded water - Acrylics begin to soften in as little as 24 hours.

Remains permanently flexible Acrylics become hard and brittle, and often crack and leaks.

Ideal for flat roofs.
