The commercial roofing industry has come a long way in recent years. Roofing options today are often more durable, long-lasting, and can also include an extra polyester layer for added protection. This extra layer is great for added waterproofing properties that can rid your building of unwanted water leaks or damage all while avoiding expensive roof repair or replacement costs. Another added benefit is that repairing an existing roof eliminates the waste of tearing off the old roof. Just ask a commercial roofer about the many benefits of a coated roof.
The roof plays an important role in energy efficiency. If a roof lets in the cold in the winter months or heats up the indoor space in the summer months, this can lead to increased energy bills. Coating can help improve energy efficiency to lower those monthly energy bills. A white elastomeric coating for instance is great in warm climates for reflecting UV rays and keeping the temperature of the roof lower. Additionally, a darker coating in colder climates will absorb UV rays to help maintain warmer temperatures inside.
Tearing off an existing roof to replace it is no easy task. Roofing materials must all be thrown away. Not only is this wasteful, but it can also be costly. Coated roof, however, can be recoated to prolong the necessity of having the roof replaced by a commercial roofing company. The ease of care, ability to recoat, and the decrease of expensive roofing repairs make coated roofs a sustainable option for many commercial buildings.
