Thanks to recent advancements, roof coatings are now seen as one of the pertinent solutions when it comes to maintaining and restoring commercial roofing systems while reducing environmental impact. They may not be the panacea for whatever problems a roof might suffer over its lifespan, but as long as they’re properly applied and maintained, they can help sustain any roofing asset. We discuss more below.
Extended Lifespan for a Commercial Roof
Scheduling routine maintenance is crucial to ensuring that a commercial roof is kept in a maintainable condition. Through careful monitoring and timely repairs, the whole structure can likely undergo re-coating projects to further extend its lifespan. Reflective coatings, for instance, lower rooftop temperatures to slow down the aging process caused by heat and ultraviolet (UV) ray exposure.
Limited Debris Created During Construction
According to recent estimates, many roofing projects can generate up to 40% of the construction waste that ends up in landfills. When applied at the right time within the commercial roofing system’s lifespan, coatings can forestall the need for replacement. With these, there’ll be no need to remove and dispose of the old membrane and insulation.
Decreased Energy Use
Reflective coatings not only reduce temperatures on the rooftop during the summer months but also impact the building’s energy requirements. They help reduce the load on the HVAC system and reduce temperatures in areas that don’t receive conditioned air.
