If your wondering about your building’s roof and how well it’s going to hold up this rainy season, now is a great time to call your commercial roofing company and talk about a commercial roof coating. Although not all flat roofs can have a roof coating, many can. That means rather than a roof replacement, you may be able to extend the life of your current roof for much less.
How They Help Extend Your Roof’s Life
Unlike a total roof replacement which includes different elements and multiple layers of product, a roof coating is a liquid applied directly to your current roof’s surface. Depending on the type of roof you have, it may have seams. Most people understand that with temperature changes, things expand and contract. This often leads to leaks along roof seams. Although the leaks can be sealed with asphalt, tar or other roofing materials, over time, even the sealed seam can fail again.
Because a commercial roof coating is a solid layer across the roof’s surface, you are less likely to have a roof leak due to expansion and contraction. Because of the roof coating’s makeup you’re also less likely to see cracks in the roof’s surface. In many cases you can get at least ten more years from your current roof when your commercial roofing company properly installs a roof coating.
Because roof coatings are white or light in color, they will also help the building stay cooler. There is less heat transference from light roofing than dark roofing. This means your HVAC systems will work less which can also help them last longer. Plus, although few people see the roof’s surface it will look better with a solid and lighter surface rather than dark with multiple seams and patches.
There are environmental benefits as well. Studies have shown less urban heating when there are more light roofs over dark ones. And, because you’re not replacing your roof as often, there is less waste going into a landfill.
