Having a dependable, high-quality, long-lasting roof is paramount to all business owners and property managers. One of the best ways to extend the life of your roof is to add a roof coating. Read on to learn about the many benefits of adding a coating to your roof.

Improve Roof Lifespan

The primary benefit of roof coatings is they extend the lifespan of your roof. When a roof coating is applied, you are installing a layer of protection between your roof and the elements. The coating makes the surface more waterproof, protects it from UV rays and helps keep heat off the roof thus reducing the chances of damage.

Environmental Benefits

Did you know that old roofs take up 10% of landfill waste? By prolonging the lifespan of your roof, you are also helping to save the environment by reducing the amount of waste you create. Most roof coatings are also environmentally friendly and are not made of dangerous chemicals.  Roof coatings also are a great way to maintain lower temperatures on your roof which has obvious environmental benefits for your building and the area around it.

Energy Savings

Lower roof temperatures not only help the environment – it also saves the property owner money. Some coatings can reduce roof and interior temperatures as much as 10 degrees which allows you to use less air conditioning and save you money while reducing your environmental impact. It is also worth noting that some roofing systems prevent 98% of the sun’s energy from getting through the roof and you know how hot that North Georgia sun can be!

Prevent Roof Damage

Roof repairs can be extremely costly. With roof sealing, you can prevent much of the damage that can lead to major repairs. As noted above UV rays are very harsh on a roof’s surface and a roof coating is a great way to mitigate the damage from those harmful rays.

Tax Savings

When you use silicone coating applications on your roof, it can qualify as roof maintenance to the IRS. This means you might be eligible to deduct this cost from your taxes. You will want to check into this financial savings with a tax professional so you can maximize the benefits to your business.

Works For All Roof Systems

Most roof coatings treatments are designed to work well with nearly any roof surface such as TPO, EPDM, Modified Bitumen, PVC, Metal and much more. However, you will need to ensure the roof coating product does not void your roof warranty.

Easy Installation

The installation process for roof coating is relatively simple, does not cause a great deal of noise, have a strong odor or require you to close your business for the day. Applying a coating can fit easily into your business operations.

Renewable Protection

The benefit to coating a roof is that when it reaches the end of its serviceable life, you can apply a fresh layer of coating to the surface without needing to replace the entire roof. This will refresh the reflectivity and add years to the roof’s lifespan.
