There are several perks of coating your roof. From saving time and money to eco-friendly alternatives, roof coatings provide you with all you need and more to make your building run efficiently. A few of the benefits of roof coatings include:
Roof coatings help you avoid overfilling landfills with old roofing products. Instead, you can restore your existing roof by reusing the current roofing materials. Along with reducing waste and decreasing your impact on the environment, roof coating formulas can also qualify for the US Green Building Council’s LEED program for Sustainable Sites, Energy and Atmosphere, and Materials and Resources. The highly reflective finish of our roof coatings will also help reduce energy costs signifying your reduced impact on the environment.
A roof coating application is a sustainable approach. Compare the quick and easy installation methods to that of a re-roofing project. Since the installation of roof coatings are faster than the re-roofing option, it also has a real impact on the bottom line. A professionally installed coating system can amortize in the first year vs. over the lifetime of the roof. Recover your roof and save on labor costs and landfill expenses. Plus, you won’t need to interrupt normal business operations while we coat the roof!
Speaking of cost savings, roof coatings are also more cost-effective than other roofing services. Since roof coatings go directly on top of your existing roof, the entire installation takes less time, meaning reduced labor costs. It is also less costly in terms of materials. Another reason for the lower prices is that roof coating systems do not require much if any demolition, which additionally decreases labor and landfill fees.
Once installed, your roof coating will also help keep energy costs to a minimum. Roof coatings add reflectivity to your roof’s topcoat. The reflective capabilities provide high-quality UV protection that also adds years to your rooftop and reduces energy costs. Highly reflective roof coatings deliver a cooler and more comfortable environment inside the building. By keeping the cool air in and hot air out, your roof coating will allow you to reduce your air conditioner use, which will lower your energy utility costs.
Perhaps the biggest draw for having a roof coating installed is sustainability. These systems are renewable and can be re-coated every 10+ years to lengthen the life of your roof. As the application wears down, you can renew the reflectivity with a new layer or maintenance service. These options will ensure excellent waterproofing capabilities for years to come.
Another advantage of having a roof coating installed is that the installation process is quick and easy. In fact, you won’t even need to leave the building. The entire roof coating installation won’t make too much noise, low VOC’s, and will take only a day or two to complete (depending on roof size). Typically, a tear-off and re-roof installation can take months, which will cost business owners big time, whether in terms of revenue loss or disruption in productivity. You can restore your current roofing system to its former glory with a cheaper, faster, and easier alternative using a roof coating service provider.
