Is your commercial roof system showing signs of wear and tear as it ages? If so, you may need to consider repairing or replacing it sooner rather than later. While a complete roof replacement can be an expensive and time consuming project, there is another option you can consider. Roof coatings are an efficient and affordable form of roof restoration for commercial roofs. Today we will discuss the various benefits that come with roof coatings and roof restorations.
Plain and simple, roof coatings save money in more ways than one. From the get go, you immediately save on roof removal costs, since the old roof won’t need to be removed. Roof coatings almost always apply directly over the existing roof. The only scenario in which that won’t happen, is if you wait far too long to have it repaired. The installation process is also much cheaper and faster than a standard flat roof installation. And finally, the roof continues to save you money long after installation, since roof coatings are very energy efficient.
Roof Life Extended
Roof coatings also extend the lifespan of your roof by up to 10 years. After those ten years are up, however, you can go ahead and apply a new roof coating for another 10 years of roof life! (Note: that’s more money saved there, too!) When the roof coating is applied, it effectively repairs any damages that were done to your roof as well, which helps it last longer, even if it had minor leaks or ponding previously.
Roof Protection Enhanced
Because they are called roof coatings, sometimes people wonder if they can actually offer the protection of a brand new roof. Well: yes they can. Roof coatings are flexible, which means they easily expand and contract in fluctuating weather without cracking or breaking. Roof coatings are also resistant to punctures, and provide excellent waterproofing qualities to protect your roof. Earlier we mentioned energy efficiency, right? Well the reason they are energy efficient, is that roof coatings effectively reflect UV rays from the sun, which not only protects, but also extends the life of your roof!
