Improved building codes, sustainability efforts and holistic considerations have made roof coatings more popular for commercial owners than ever. More and more people are using them as part of their roofing maintenance plans, all while minimizing their property’s environmental impact. True enough, they are the key to sustaining existing roof assets and avoiding premature commercial roof deterioration.
Chase Roofing, your go-to commercial and residential contractor in the region, shares three reasons roof coatings are some of the most sustainable products to invest in.
They Help Lower Energy Use
Due to their unique composition, roof coatings reflect infrared (IR) light and ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which in turn, reduces the roof temperature. As a result, air conditioning systems don’t have to work extremely hard to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Roof repair experts also rely on them to help minimize a building’s carbon footprint and decrease smog through climate zones.
They Reduce Construction Waste
Did you know that roofing materials make up a big chunk of construction and landfill waste? Using roof coatings help delay premature roof replacements, which means there is no need to dispose or tear off an existing roof membrane for a considerable period.
They Prolong a Roof’s Lifespan
When properly designed, installed and maintained, roof coatings can certainly extend the service life of your commercial roof. Since they lower the effects of IR and UV rays on rooftops, they help slow down the roof’s aging process.
While these things are true, roof coatings will only function at their best when applied by a professional.
