Owning a building is a huge investment, probably the biggest you’ll ever make. You will want to protect that investment, which means caring for and maintaining the building regularly. A well-kept building is the best way to attract potential business and to catch the eye of potential buyers should you need to sell. The changing weather of California can wear and damage a roof over time, and roofing is an important aspect when it comes to building care. To get the most from your roof and to protect your investment, you should consider getting a reflective roof coating.
Pros of Reflective Roof Coatings
Depending on the size of your building, installing a roof coating is not very time consuming. It is certainly quicker than roof replacement. The roofers first need to remove all debris from the surface and then apply the reflective coating. Typically the coating needs 25 hours to dry and the building can be used during the process.
Wear and tear are natural to roofing as time passes, but rather than replace the entire roof, you can get a protective and reflective coating to extend its lifespan. This seamless membrane applied to the top of your roof stops leaks and provides protection from the weather and environmental elements. In fact, there are a number of reasons that you should be looking into a reflective roof coating.
- They provide a more affordable alternative to full roof replacement. A few leaks don’t mean you have to replace the entire roof. Have a professional roofer come to your property to assess the situation and unless significant damage to the interior of the roofing system has occurred, you do not need to replace the roof. Minor repairs and a reflective roof coating will have your roof looking as good as new in no time. You can even add a few coatings to further extend functionality.
- Your roof will last longer with a reflective coating. The sun does more damage than any other element, and a reflective coating keeps the harmful rays away from the roof surface. Your roof will look new and will last up to an additional 5 to 7 years with a coating in place.
- Roof replacement is expensive but adding a coating is about half the price. You get a new looking roof and save money. It takes a much shorter time to install a reflective coating too, so there will be minimal loss of business time and disruption with that option. It also eliminates disposal costs of old roof materials and additional labor.
- You can save energy and money with a reflective roof coating. The summer sun’s rays can heat up your building a great deal, forcing you to use air conditioning all the time. A reflective roof coating keeps the heat away and the building cooler. You save on energy costs all year round.
