Whether you’re a commercial building owner with a flat roof or a homeowner with a clay tile roof, you may want to consider a roof coating. Admittedly roof coatings differ between residential and commercial roofing, however their benefits are the same. If you’re looking to reduce your energy usage, extend the life of your roof and save money overall, you should consider a roof coating for your property.
Commercial Roof Coatings
Although not all roofs can have a coating installed over them, many can. Assuming your roof can have a roof coating, one of the biggest benefits is the savings in cooling your property. Most older roofs are dark colored. Everyone knows that wearing a dark shirt on a sunny day makes you feel warmer. The same is true for a roof. When you add a roof coating, it’s white. It will reflect more of the sun’s heat which will keep the building cooler.
Another big benefit is that roof coatings can often extend the life of your current roof. Although a commercial roof coating is an expense, it’s considerably less than a roof replacement. A properly installed roof coating can extend the life of the roof by up to ten years.
Tile Roof Coating
Whether you have a home with clay tile roofing or a commercial building with clay tile, not only can a roof coating change the color of the roof, but also seal small cracks in the tiles. If your homeowner’s association says your roof is in violation, talk to your roofing company about a roof coating. You can choose from several colors that will fit in with your HOA’s regulations. Choosing a light color can reduce your cooling costs over a dark color. Plus, like a commercial roof coating, it can extend the life of the roof itself.
