Saving money and helping the environment aren’t just trends. They’re part of every practical aspect of the world. As a roofing company, AAAA Contactors have embraced this great change and have examined how we can help in our industry. Our roof coating options all have their benefits, no matter if you’re a homeowner or business owner. We want your roofs to last longer and stay protected with more efficient materials. The endless benefits of applying roof coating make it the best investment you can possibly make for your roof. We’ve looked at five of our favorite roof coating benefits to get you on board!
Best Reasons For Roof Coating
Your roof probably goes unnoticed until something drastic happens. Anything from a leak, tiles falling off, or even worse, a cave-in due to bad weather. We’ve seen every roof disaster that you can imagine. The main thing we notice with every roof catastrophe – it could have been avoided. It’s understandable why the majority of people overlook what issues could happen on their roof. After all, you trust the roof was supplied in good condition when you rent or purchase a home or building. However, intense weather, a bad roofing job, or even just age, can all make a difference.
Roof Coating Reduces Energy Use
Your roof helps with insulation in the building. This will help keep each room warm or cool whenever the A/C or heater turns on. The better your roof helps keep in that insulation, the less your heater or A/C will have to work to keep it at a stable temperature. Roof coating has proven as one of the best ways to keep this under control and helps reduce our carbon footprint with less energy use. A reflective roof coating can also reflect more sunlight, making the roof absorb less heat. Many of these coatings can reflect ultraviolet light and infrared sunlight away from the building, which will also reduce the cooling energy usage.
A roof coating can also help the Energy Star rating for a building. These ratings get determined by the amount of energy your building uses. Any score below 50 means the energy performance ranks worse than half of the country’s similar buildings. If you rank 75 or higher, then it’s listed as a top performer. All of these perks will also increase the resale value of your home or office!
Extend Lifespan and Eco-Friendly
Extending the lifespan of your roof stands as one of the best environmentally friendly aspects of roof coating. A roof coating will help reduce waste made from repairs, maintenance, and replacement. It’s been recorded that roofing projects can generate up to 40% of construction waste in landfills. A roof coating can slow down the need for a replacement and avoid the need to tear off and replace the roof in general. There’s also no dangerous chemicals involved with roof coatings. A cooler roof will also mean it helps reduce local air temperatures and peak energy usage. This process is also renewable, and recoating can happen about every ten years or so to lengthen the roof lifespan, refresh the reflectivity, and ensure waterproofing.
One of our favorite perks, keeping the weather outside! You won’t have to worry about any random leaks coming from up top with proper roof coatings. The coating will meld together to create a seal that can’t get penetrated by water. With heavy winds, the seams of panels can get pried off. With a good roof coating, it will add an extra layer of protection against these strong winds. The long-term effect of this means less of a need to get repairs and maintenance on your roof!
Keep Your Business Open
A big concern about roof coating is having to stay home that day to get the job done. Or, maybe even having to close shop for the day to get work done on the roof. However, the roof coating process doesn’t make much noise and doesn’t have as strong of a smell as you expect with regular roof maintenance. It’s much easier than replacing a roof, so you do not have to find new ways to get people inside while your roof gets worked on. While we’re on the topic of saving money, roof coating also isn’t nearly as labor-intensive as replacing a roof. So, the costs to get this does is significantly less than any other roofing job.
