Roof Coatings May Be a Better Alternative to Re-Roofing a Commercial Roofing System
Does your commercial roof leak? If so, a little exploration of alternative solutions before opting for a full roof tear-off and roof replacement is in order. In many instances, a restoration membrane can save you from an expensive roof replacement.
40% COMMERCIAL ROOFS DON’T NEED REPLACEMENT
Eventually, building owners are faced with the decision to completely tear-off an existing roof or repair it should think twice. However, forty percent of commercial roofs do not need replacement!
Considering Silicone Restoration Membrane (SRM) or Acrylic Coatings are smart alternatives to re-roofing your failing commercial roofing system. Likewise, these coatings are durable and flexible. Coatings applications are possible for all types of roofs; flat or pitched roofing systems, those with skylights, drainage systems and vents.
GREEN ROOFING IS GOOD FOR YOUR BRAND
Acrylic and silicone coatings are eco-friendly, economical and durable. Better yet, roof coatings protect your roof from leaks, mold and mildew. The beauty of a roof restoration versus a full roof replacement is eliminating the need to rip your roof off, which is costly and bad for landfills.
A commercial property owner looking to reduce energy consumption should consider applying a white or reflective coating that will reflect the sun’s ray. Cool roofs keep your building cooler and reduce energy consumption.
This lower energy cost also translate into lowering your building’s carbon footprint and increasing its energy star rating. This could very well improve your green efforts and will reflect well on your company’s brand.
EXTEND YOUR ROOF’S LIFESPAN
Roof coatings will protect and extend the lifespan of your commercial roofing system. They are over existing roof coverings; metal, single ply membranes, BUR, modified bitumen and spray polyurethane foam.
Roof Coatings are seamless membranes applied across the roofing system, around any protruding elements such as pipes, vents, HVAC and other equipment. This enables a fully sealed and waterproofed roofing system. When sprayed, the coating melts together around those hard to seal and reach areas.
These seamless roof coatings make for better protections from leaks and an added lifespan of up to 10 years to your commercial roof. This increase in performance will protect your roof from the impact of hail, rain, sunlight and other extreme weather conditions.
In addition, roof coatings eliminate the noise and interruptions that a costly tear-off process brings. Roof coatings involve little noise and often implemented in less than a day.
As you can see, there are great benefits gained by opting for roof coatings versus a full roof replacement. If you would like to find out if your commercial roofing system is a candidate for a roof coating system, get in touch.
