Why Should You Use A Roof Restoration Coating System?
There are several reasons why roof coating systems in Chicago may be the right choice for you. During the application, monolithic membranes are sprayed on top of the roof, and around any equipment, in order to make the roof waterproof. Once applied, there are no patches or seams in the coating. What are the benefits of such a system? Read on for more information.
1. The Roof Lasts Longer
This is not a “one and done” deal. About every ten years, you can add another coat to your roof. This helps the roof to last longer and also strengthens the waterproofing system.
2. The Price Is Right
Nothing happens to your existing roof. The coating is put on top of what is already there, making the entire process very cost effective and cutting back on the installation time. The process is nothing compared to what is involved in putting on a new roof. Because the existing roof stays on the house, there is very little waste generated from the process. You pay less money but you still get a roof that is sealed and protected from water.
3. The Work Isn’t Intrusive
When you go with a silicone coating system, business can continue as usual within the building. The application process is not very loud and there is very little smell associated with the work. As a result, life can progress normally for everyone on the interior of the property.
In contrast, the installation of a new roof takes a long time (several weeks). Most businesses have to close for at least part of the installation, which means that they lose money. Applying a coating to a low-slope roof is a better choice because it doesn’t cost as much money, doesn’t take as long, and allows you to continue to work during the process.
4. It’s Green
By keeping the roof you already have in place, and making the choice not to put new materials on the home, you keep a lot of waste out of the landfill. This is good for the environment. In addition, most coatings do not have any volatile organic compounds; the ones that do are considered ultra low.
5. It Gives UV Protection
When a top coat is in place that is highly reflective, it adds UV protection. That means your roof lasts longer and is more durable.
When you own a commercial or industrial building one of the biggest expenses is roof replacement. A quality, complete tear off new roof can cost anywhere from $10-$15 per square foot. Multiple that cost by the square footage of large building and the cost of a flat or metal roof can run into the tens of thousands up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The cost of roof coating is much less expensive. Quality materials, installed by a professional roof coater run between $4-$6 per square foot. A significant price savings. Plus by using a certified applicator, many manufacturers offer extended warranties and guarantees. Some as long as 20 years.
