TAKE A GREAT ROOFING SYSTEM AND MAKE IT LAST LONGER
Perhaps the greatest benefit of commercial roof coatings is the fact that they can be recoated at the end of their lives, and therefore have their lives extended 10, 15, even 20 years longer. Commercial roof coatings are already a fantastic roofing system providing excellent waterproofing, good UV resistance, and helping the environment around the building, so why not extend their life and keep it on your roof?
Not Just Better, Simpler
When a commercial roof coating reaches the end of its initial life, the recoat process is not only effective, but also very simple. Let’s say the commercial roof coating you chose was made of silicone. To recoat, you simply have to power wash the roof and install a new layer of coating over top of it. You can get a new roof coating, a new warranty, and up to 20 more years of protection for a fraction of the cost of replacing your roof. That’s immeasurably more simple than tearing off your old roof, laying down new decking, then installing a completely new roof. Save time, money, headache, and prevent materials from going to the landfill with commercial roof coatings.
Recoating: More for Less
Another benefit of the recoating process is that you aren’t just extending the life of your roof and your roof coating by doing the same amount of work and applying the same amount of material as before. You are doing less work, using less material, and getting the longer life that way.
All of your seam prepping, protrusion repair, and flashing details were completed at the initial install of the coating. That’s what takes the most time, and you don’t have to do it the second time around. What a nice perk.
You also use less material. A roof that needed 25 mils at installation may only need 15 mils at recoat for the same warranty period. This means you save money on labor and on materials.
Commercial roof coatings are a great alternative to roof replacement because they provide great benefits during their lives, and their lives can be easily extended for as long as the roof remains structurally sound. Contact us to get started with your commercial roof coating today.
