Roof coatings have become more popular over the years. They help property owners and managers comply with more stringent building codes and appease the call of environmentalists for sustainable construction practices.
Today, Goodrich Roofing talks about the biggest benefits of coating moderately aged roofing systems:
1. Extending Its Life
Coating the parts of the roof exposed to the sun is key to longevity. A reflective coating helps mitigate the detrimental effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation and keeps the surface temperature low. As a result, the roof coverage would age and deteriorate more slowly. With proper maintenance, previously coated roofs may be good candidates for re-coating in the future.
2. Improving Energy Efficiency
Reflective roof coatings keep not only the surface of the roofing materials cool, but also the finished spaces below. In turn, the interior doesn’t get excessively hot during the warmest months. This is good news for your HVAC system.
3. Revitalizing Your Roof’s Appearance
The use of a coating is an opportunity to revamp the look of an aging roof. Considering that constant UV exposure leads to discoloration, its application can bring back your faded roof’s youthful glow.
4. Reducing Construction Waste
Did you know that old roofs represent about 40% of construction waste congesting landfills? When used at the right time, a coating can effectively delay the need for roof replacement. Imagine the amount of debris you can prevent from going into landfills with timely coating projects.
5. Minimizing Disruption
Regardless of the roof size, adding a roof coating isn’t very disruptive. Expect little to no noise and minimal odor. It’s often done sooner than you can imagine.
6. Saving Money
The overall cost of a coating project pales in comparison to that of a replacement project. It won’t render your roofing system maintenance-free, but it will make it more weather-resistant, which could significantly minimize your repair costs in the future.
