ROOF COATINGS SAVE YOU MONEY IN A NUMBER OF WAYS
Installing a roof coating on your flat roof can save you money in a number of different ways. First, they save money at installation. Then, roof coatings save you money through their performance during their life. Finally, roof coatings can save you money at the end of their lives as well. Let’s look at each of these in detail.
Roof Coatings Save You Money at Installation
When you install a flat roof coating on your building, you save money in several ways at installation. First, you don’t have to tear off the existing roof system. A flat roof coating can be installed over one or two roof systems without tear off. This is obviously a huge labor saver, plus you don’t need to haul away the old materials. On top of no tear off, a roof coating can be installed very quickly by a small crew, once again reducing your labor expenses. This is a fantastic way for you to save money on your new roof installation.
Save Money During the Life of Your Roof Coating
Roof coatings also save you money during their life through reduced energy usage. They reflect UV rays off of your roof, keeping your building significantly cooler in the summer. This means you run your AC less and save money that way.
Roof coatings also require fewer repairs than other systems, which saves you money by not hiring someone to get up on your roof and fix it.
Save Money at the End of Your Roof’s Life
Once you’ve installed a roof coating on your home, you can also save big money every 15-20 years when your coating reaches “the end” of its useful life. You don’t have to replace the roof coating, you can simply apply another layer of the coating over top of the old one. This gives you more waterproofing protection and 15-20 more years of life out of your roof for a fraction of the cost of tear off and replacement.
In addition to the savings provided by the use of a roof coating up-front, roof coatings also often come with tax benefits. Since the choice to use a roof coating is classified as an expense, it can be written off 100% in the year it is installed, which can save you a load of money on your taxes.
Flat roof coatings can save you money on your roof in many different ways, and are a great investment to make in your building. If you’d like to know more about the process of installing flat roof coatings and how they can save you money, give us a call today.
