ARE SEAMS REALLY A CONCERN FOR YOUR ROOF?
To answer that question shortly: Yes, seams are a major concern for your roof. Seams have many different weaknesses that can lead to a multitude of problems on your roof that you don’t want to have. Fortunately for you and for all building owners out there, there is an alternative to roofing systems filled with seams: seamless roofing systems! It is so obvious, if seams are a problem, then just develop a roof without seams. Well, that is easier said than done, but there are a few seamless roof systems available, namely spray foam and roof coatings that can eliminate seams on your roof. Let’s look at the advantages that a seamless roof can provide for your building.
A Seamless Roof System Can: Prevent Leaks
When you install a seamless roof system on your building, you eliminate the leaks that exist already, and prevent leaks from developing in the future. A seamless roof system is significantly less likely to leak in the future because it lacks seams, which are the most common point of failure on a roof.
A seamless roof system, whether it’s spray foam, an acrylic coating, a silicone coating, or another seamless system, can also reduce the number of repairs required on your roof. Seamless systems are self-adhered, meaning there are no fasteners that can back out and require replacement, and the lack of seams once again means less opportunity for things to go wrong and require a repair.
Prevent Energy Loss
The lack of seams and fasteners in a seamless roof system also prevent energy loss. Each small weakness and break in the roof membrane allows the transfer of hot or cold through the roof, which can lead to energy loss in your building. A seamless roof system seals in all those imperfections and prevents that energy loss.
Reduce or Eliminate Headache
The culmination of the three benefits above, eliminating headache is a major benefit of seamless roofing systems. Their performance is so far superior to that of roof systems with seams means you don’t have to worry about leaks, about frequent repairs, and the reduced energy bill will give you a boost every month. These benefits mean you’ll be less stressed and much happier with your roof.
A seamless roof can provide many significant benefits for you and your building. The lack of seams permeates through many aspects of the roof and give you a completely different experience both at installation and during the life of the roof.
