How Commercial Roof Coatings Can Save Your Business Money

If you own a commercial property, the care of the roofing system is vital to keeping your business thriving. It would not be good for your business to briefly close in order to fix major interior leaks due to a failing roofing system. By regular inspections of the integrity of the roof, your business can continue moving forward. Damage, wear and tear due to aging, and severe weather can all be factors in complications caused on the roof. Thankfully, the longevity of your roof can remain intact through a roof coating.

What is Roof Coating?

How Can Roof Coating Save Money on My Commercial Roof? 

Lengthen the Lifespan

A full roof replacement on a commercial building can be quite costly. This cost can be eliminated by simply repairing the areas of damage and age. The lifespan of your current roof can be lengthened. The coating can fill in gaps or holes and cracks that could otherwise increase over time, creating issues down the road. Regular inspections can eliminate and reduce the future cost of a new roof. 

Protection Against Leaks

As mentioned above, the protective layer can seal up any cracks or leaks that have begun to form. It is best to seal them upon noticing the damaged areas. If these areas go undetected or lack repair, a costly roof replacement could be in your future. Once again, a regular inspection is beneficial. 

Energy Savings

When the cracks and holes in a commercial roof are properly sealed, the temperature of the building is better maintained. The need to continually run the AC to keep the building cool can be minimized by fully sealing the rooftop. That filters down to lower energy bills! 

Environmental Savings

If a commercial roofing system is fully damaged, and a replacement is needed, where would the old material end up? Unfortunately, it could end up in a landfill. By coating the current roof and making sure the product is doing its job with regular inspections, the need for a full replacement can be eliminated. The cost savings in coating vs. full replacement is substantial.
