Replacement isn’t the only viable option to revitalize the look and structural integrity of your aging commercial roof. The application of coatings makes it an excellent alternative. According to Fortenberry Roofing Co., here are the undisputed benefits of using roof coatings:
If only 10% of your commercial roofing system is the problem, it doesn’t make sense to replace 100% of it. A brand-new roof is always costlier than a coating product by thousands of dollars. In most cases, fresh coats would suffice to restore the roof’s weather resistance.
Since a replacement project could put a big hole in your wallet, delaying the need for it is a reasonable thing to do. Putting your dollars in roof coatings could buy you an additional 10 years (or more) before you need to worry about getting a new system.
Any experienced commercial roof contractor would attest that coating application is one of the least inconvenient projects there is. Although the job nonetheless requires technical skills and proper tools, it can give your building a makeover in no time. On the other hand, replacing an entire roof can take days, which can cause downtime.
Restoring Lost Charm
Coatings exist to reinforce the ability of the surface materials to ward off the elements and withstand the effects of harsh conditions. They, however, can also refresh your roof’s appearance. They can make it seem new again structurally and aesthetically.
Enhancing Energy Efficiency
Coatings can elevate the thermal properties of your commercial roofing system. Using an ENERGY STAR®-labeled roof coating product can help cut your peak cooling demand by up to 15% and reduce your building’s carbon footprint. If you’re aiming to get LEED credits to earn a green building certification, a reflective roof coating is worth the money.
