What if I told you there was another option to paying for a full roof replacement? A Restoration Membrane can save you time and money when facing a commercial roof project.
Here at West Roofing Systems, we’ve been restoring commercial roof systems to working order while saving facility owners and managers thousands of dollars in repairs and roof replacements.

Roof Coating Cost and Installation
A Silicone Restoration Membrane (SRM) is a fluid applied silicone coating sprayed directly onto an existing roof system.

The process of installing a silicone restoration membrane is relatively straightforward.
