Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by warmnsunny AWESOME Product! Works Great
I installed this product in April 2015. Installation was quick and easy. Clean up was also easy and quick. I used a total of 9 five gallon buckets.
How well did it work. It has been working flawlessly. It has sealed the roof well. It also prevents heat gain very well.
I took Thermo pictures of the roof prior to starting and then after the two coats were applied. The results were very positive. Over a 60 degree surface temperature drop.
I attached a report of the surface temperature difference. This is a very good product. I will follow up in two years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CoolRoof Worked extremely well for me
INSTALLATION TIPS: 1950's era low-slope roof with no attic (interior ceiling is attached directly to 2x6 joists); with rolled roofing (about 10-year old roof). Took 3-hours and 3-1/2 pails to do 1200 sf first coat; 2-hours and 2-pails for second coat. Temps during application were in the 90's with direct sun, medium humidity. Rained hard 8-hours after second coat was complete - no noticeable issues. Easiest way for us to apply was to simply pour a 4-foot splash of paint, then even it out with a roller. First coat went on a bit tan. Second coat went on bright-white (not really blue as is advertised), was easy to tell what needed a second coat. Cleans up with water
DID IT WORK? Like a charm. I don't have any actual before temperature readings, but there is an area of open ceiling where the heat just radiated down - roof temps had to be over 130-degrees. Now, in full midday sun, digital thermometer reads 97-degrees (ambient temperature outside was 93-degrees). So it really cut down the conductive heat.
WORKS BEST FOR - low-slope roof houses; especially where there is a lot of conductive heat (meaning, where the heat is transferred by surface into the interior space - most houses have an attic with ventilation, so while this would improve the heat transfer, results would be less dramatic). Cost was around $0.50/sf plus my labor to install. I believe it will add a good 5+ years to life of roof, and pay for itself in reduced AC costs (caution - according to CRRC tests, winter-time benefits reverse, meaning you actually need a bit extra heat because the roof reflects much).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katuner Definitely a company I would trust to stand behind their products…
i just wanted to thank you, and especially your sales rep for services rendered. When the Lanco Ultra Siliconizer Roof sealer was applied to my sun room roof, the person walked on the roof creating a leak. Be careful when applying, not to walk on fragile roofs.
It isn't like suddenly having air conditioning, but the Lanco product does seem to have noticeably lowered the temperature in the previously very hot Florida sun room, making the un-bearable bearable... so I would recommend giving it a try.
Although indirectly the leak was the result of using the product, it was not the fault of the product, but Lanco not only sent a rep to look and advise me about the problem but helped me out with the expense of repair by providing a free 5 gallon replacement product. Definitely a company I would trust to stand behind their products… and I would want to do business with again!
thank you again.. i look forward to a leak-proof and cooler sun room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaddyRon Reduced kitchen ceiling temps by over 30 degrees
My metal strips supporting my drop ceiling in kitchen add on to house would be too hot to touch in the afternoon even with lots of insulation. The AC Was working hard. After first thin coat applied on Labor day, the strips were only about 78 degrees when it was well over 95 degrees outside. It rained about 5 hours later and nothing leeched off the roof. Put on 2nd coat 6 days later, is so white it hurts to look at it even with dark sunglasses. No doubt that my next electric bill will be lower as it no longer runs as long to cool the house. This is over a mostly flat roof wtih a gentle slope that mostly dries quickly after a rain. Next question, should I try it on the Architectural Shingles? The light gray color is getting darker after 14 years. Would definitely help cool the attic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrMicha Wrong specs, 300 sq. ft. coverage per bucket!
The coverage area is not 60 sq.ft., it's actually 60-80 sq. ft. per gallon! You should be able to do about 300 sq. ft. with a 5 gal bucket. Read the PDF guidelines on Lanco's website "Apply the first coat by pouring container of Lanco® Ultra Siliconizer™ onto the roof and spreading at a rate of 2-4 gallons per 120-240 sq. ft.."

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrSunshine Older roof completely looks new!
I had a leak on my South Florida home where the back flat roof was 10 years old and starting to leak. I had just at 2000 square ft of flat roof. I used 7 X 5 gal buckets. The roof looks great. Reflects the sun and the interior of the house stays cool. Be sure to prep the roof. I used a stiff broom to sweep all the debris off and cleaned with a mixture of bleach and water. Allowed to dry for 2 days and then applied Ultra Siliconizer.
I did 2 coats. 1 then the second 24 hours later. It looks like a new roof. Had many roofers give me quotes for a new roof at 12K. Very happy this stuff works as good as it does. I plan on re coating with 1 coat each year. Should last just about forever. All flat roofs in Florida should be coated with this stuff. But of they did the Roofers would be out a job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roofer Awesome Product
I own a roofing company in the Virgin Islands and we do strictly waterproofing and minor repairs of roofs. We have been using this product for many years now and it is the only water based Acrylic product that we use. When properly applied, according to manufacturer's specs, it forms a superb waterproof membrane on your roof that does an awesome job of repelling water. Best when used on roofs with good drainage and little to no water ponding. Be sure roof is properly cleaned first in order to get a good bond.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sinewave This is the greatest stuff EVER!!!
Why am I so excited about this product you might ask? I live in hot, humid South Florida and our house was built in 1930. There's no attick, only wind turbines, and the roof is torch down. There is no central AC due to the lack of attick and even though the pipes could be run externally, I won't due that due to the six month hurricane seasonal stress. The entire inside of the house is cement stucco - both walls and ceiling - no dry wall! So, when it gets hot and the sun starts beating down, it turns the inside into a brick oven. The ceiling inside gets hot to the touch. I painted my roof with this product and the results were mind-blowing...I mean literally! Now, the inside ceiling is stone cold, I no longer have to run all of my window 'bangers'. The roof is so white you need a pair of sunglasses to look at it. What's really mnid-blowing (besides the extreme tempeture drop) is that the only room I didn't paint was my office which is a flat roof that occassionally puddles. The ceiling in that room still gets hot to the touch, and when you walk through the door way into the rest of the house you can immediately feel the difference! This stuff works so well, I used it also on a huge hydro NFT system I have in my yard (10' 4" pvc tubes) and the chiller no longer struggles to keep the water temp at 75! I'm completely sold on this product and have recommended it to just about everyone I talk to!
