6 Ways Your Commercial Buildings Benefit from Roof Coating Systems

Posted on September 26th, 2018 by Applied Roofing Services

Today roof coatings systems are a popular choice for commercial building owners because they can be used in a wide range of roofing applications. Roof coating can increase the longevity of your commercial roof, thus saving you from sustaining the cost and impact of an overall roof replacement.

Roof Coating Systems

Here are some of the reasons why commercial roof coating systems offer superior options for a commercial building:

  1. Seamless & Weatherproof System – The roof coating emulsions are sprayed onto the roof to produce an impermeable seal for your roof. Since it’s applied everywhere from pipes to hatches and other tools, it ultimately seals out the elements. Some products are applied on through brooms and brushes while others are merely sprayed on. Either way, the end result, is a firm membrane that can endure a lifetime.

  2. Cost effective – It reduces the overall cost of the project because you’re able to place these products onto an existing roof. It’s a cost-effective choice compared to fitting a new roof for an existing property. It also removes the need of disposing of the waste of the old roofing material which saves you further from the landfill charges that you would have sustained with a conventional renovation.

  3. Negligible Installation Impact on Normal Operations – The application produces minimal sound disturbances and the lowest possible odor, so you can easily carry on with your regular business operations. You will not incur any loss of income from needing to close down operations.

  4. Environmentally friendly – Roof coating does not occupy landfill space with its application. Additionally, several roof coatings have extremely low or nil VOCs and so they conform to the LEED program for Sustainable Sites, Energy and Atmosphere, and Materials and Resources of the US Green Building Council.

  5. Sustainable – The roof coating system can be reapplied at a gap of ten years to preserve the waterproofing, reflectivity and enhance the roof life.

  6. Reduced Utility Requirements – When a reflective upper coat is applied to your roof, it includes UV protection, thus decreasing roof maintenance costs. Highly reflective coatings induce greater comfort and coolness in buildings. Such buildings need less air conditioning even in the hottest areas during summers!

  7. Commercial roof coatings are an excellent system. To learn more about roof coatings, contact Applied Roofing Services today!

Roof Restoration Restores Your Roof at a Reasonable Cost

Posted on May 29th, 2018 by Applied Roofing Services

There are three main options when it comes to fixing your roof. Total replacement, roof repair, and roof restoration. Totally replacing your roof can be costly, while repairs are best suited when only a small portion of the roof has been damaged. Roof restoration can save you both time and money, especially if the roof is relatively new.

Roof Restoration

When Is Roof Restoration a Better Option than Replacement?

Most roofs can last up to 20 years if properly maintained. If your roof span has more than five years or more before it will need to be replaced, restoration is a sensible option. A roof that is constantly exposed to strong sunlight is also a good candidate for restoration.

Another reason for restoration is if you plan on selling your home in the near future.

What Is Involved in the Roof Restoration Process?

During a roof restoration project, the first step is to clean the roof, removing any moss, lichens, or mold. If you have a metal rook you need to look closely and remove any rust that may be present. Closely check any seams, fasteners or flashing and apply a sealant, if necessary. If you notice any areas where repairs need to be made, they must be completed before you finish the restoration.

The final step is to apply the desired coating. Examples include silicone-based coatings, acrylic, and asphalt emulsion.

What Are the Advantages of Roof Restoration?

Roof restoration offers many advantages over and above just saving you money. Restorations take less time and are more convenient. When a reflective coating is used, a restoration can actually lower your heating and cooling bills.

Restoring a roof also reduces the amount of materials you use in the process.

Roof restoration is a great idea when you don’t need a new roof, but repairs won’t really solve your problem. Discuss your options with an independent roofing contractor so that you know all of your options. They can offer advice on what type of coating will work best and inspect your roof so that you know all of the necessary repairs are taken care of before you start the project.
