WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT TO GET FROM YOUR LIQUID ROOF?
When you install a liquid roof on your existing building, you generally get the roof for a much lower price tag than other systems, while still getting great performance out of the roof. Most beneficial aspects of liquid roof performance are rooted in the fact that it is a seamless system, and that most liquid roofs are white. Let’s look more closely at the benefits provided by a seamless, white liquid roof.
Leak-Free Liquid Roof Performance
Thanks to the absence of seams, liquid roofs have significantly fewer weak spots where they might leak. There are no fasteners that can back out and leak, and no seams that can pull apart or crack and leak. A seamless system means you can almost guarantee that your roof won’t leak thanks to superior liquid roof performance compared to systems with seams.
No Energy Loss
Roofs with large numbers of seams and/or fasteners are also exposed to greater energy loss through these weak spots. The fields of the individual roof sections may have a high R-value, but the hole at the fasteners do not. The seams can have tiny gaps between them, allowing climate-controlled air to escape. If it’s cold outside and you’re heating the air inside your building, you want as much of that to stay contained as possible. A seamless system helps maintain the climate in your building much more effectively than systems with gaps at the seams or fasteners.
White Roof Reflectivity
Another benefit common to almost all liquid roofs is that they are reflective and help to cool down your building in the summer. Most liquid roofs are white in color to make them reflective. Reflectivity keeps your building more comfortable and allows you to run your AC unit less in the summer. All liquid roof features improve the environmental friendliness of your building. Reflectivity is a major component of that.
Liquid roof performance features allow you to worry less about your roof and to save money. Reduced energy consumption in your building saves money and lets you sleep easier. For a roofing system that typically costs half of a standard replacement, you can’t beat those benefits.
