Top 5 Reasons to Choose Roof Coating

Your commercial roof has endured a lot of abuse. Time, water, and UV rays have caused some damage and required action in order to protect not only the structure but the employees, equipment, processes, and sensitive materials located inside the building. Before replacing the roof of your condo, warehouse, or manufacturing plant, however, you should learn more about roof coating. Replacing an older roof can be expensive – and in some cases, completely unnecessary.

In this article, we will examine some of the surprising and cost-saving benefits of choosing a roof coating system for your commercial project.

  1. Roof Coatings are Environmentally Friendly: Roof coatings reduce construction waste by prolonging the life of a commercial roof. This reduces the volume of waste resulting from repair and maintenance of the current roof – or of a tear-off and replacement. Roof coatings and roofing systems focus on sustainable solutions and minimizing costs while employing environmentally safe strategies. When a roof coating is applied at the right time in a roof’s life cycle, it can eliminate the need for costly replacement, as well as avoid the necessity to break down and dispose of old insulation and roofing materials.
  2. Coatings Provide Improved Aesthetics: If your commercial roof is experiencing signs of aging or deterioration, it is essential to schedule an inspection with a roofing contractor as soon as possible. It is very possible that you will be able to correct minor issues with a roof coating, which will significantly enhance the condition and aesthetics of the roof, making the property look more professional and even improving your property value.
  3. Roof Coatings Extend the Life of the Roof:  The summer of 2023 is proving to be one of the hottest on record across the United States. Roof coatings will prolong the lifespan of the roof by creating an effective barrier between the elements and the roofing materials, safeguarding them against damaging temperatures and UV rays.  A professional roof coating contractor can repair, coat, and restore moderately old roofs, as well as some roofs with leaking issues (depending on the level of damage to the exterior and interior structure.)
  4. Roof Coatings Can Reduce Leaking: Many membrane types are susceptible to early deterioration and leakage, but strategic roof coating products and applications in these areas can mitigate the damage and prolong the life of the entire roof. If not treated, leaks, wet insulation, and in-depth structural deterioration may result in the need for premature roof replacement.
  5. Roof Coatings Can Lower Energy Usage: Contemporary roof coatings contain emissive and reflective properties that help to lower the roof’s temperature by refusing to absorb the sun’s heat. This allows the building’s interior to remain much cooler, especially attractive during these current national heat waves. Because of the roof coating, the building’s air conditioning system should not be required to operate at maximum capacity, reducing monthly energy consumption.

    If you are responsible for maintaining your commercial property, it is essential to remain aware of the building’s roof condition. A condominium complex must protect the environmental comfort, health, and safety of its residents.  A warehouse or manufacturing site must regulate internal temperatures for employees and protect expensive equipment. An office building must offer comfortable and ergonomic internal conditions for all tenants. In other words, no matter your commercial building – from car dealership to elementary school – maintaining the integrity f the roof is vital.
