Aluminum roof coatings should be among the first roof repair options a shrewd property owner considers, especially when a commercial flat or metal roof is just beginning to show signs of aging. Preserving your roof, and by extension the value of your property, by implementing a concise preventative maintenance program has been shown to be the most cost effective course of action. Few options are as economical and effective as Aluminum roof coatings which not only waterproof, but also encapsulate, preserve and protect your existing roof asset.
We are certified to install Energy Star rated Aluminum roof coatings that come with up to 15 year manufacturer warranties. Furthermore, most roof coatings we offer are renewable meaning they may be re-applied, with a new warranty, once the original coating begins to fail. The life of a flat roof can be doubled using this method. In the case of metal roofs, these benefits are amplified and may be reapplied almost indefinitely. Combine this with the fact that most Energy Star rated aluminum roof coatings actually pay for themselves via energy savings and tax credits, it’s really a no brainer.
Energy Star Roof Coatings
Energy Star rated roof coatings, not only save you money in cooling costs, but they are good for the environment in general. They lower carbon emissions, are renewable and by definition must emit heat. Make sure that your contractor only uses Energy Star rated roof coatings for your commercial roofing repair .
Cool Roof Tax Credit
We have been speaking a lot about tax deductions for energy efficient roofing. Savvy commercial property owners can leverage this tax incentive to receive up to $.60 per square foot back on capital improvements to their roofing systems. Although the specifics get a little technical and legislation is both in the works and subject to change, the basic qualifications are this:
- The roof coating or roofing system must be Energy Star Rated.
- They must contribute to improving the energy efficiency of the building envelope by 50%.
Keep in mind that the law doesn’t require that the roofing system alone improve the energy efficiency of the building by 50%, it only requires that the roof contributes to reaching that benchmark. In fact, the building need never reach a 50% improvement at all, provided the roofing system is holding up its side of the bargain. If an owner were to actually achieve a total building 50% improvement by installing high efficiency HVAC systems, low wattage lighting systems and other means; he would be eligible to receive $1.80 per square foot of building. That adds up fast. We can show you how to do it.
Cool Roof Coatings
Cool Roof Coatings just make sense. Protect your roof, delay expensive roof replacement, save money on cooling bills, receive tax credits, stop leaks, save the environment. The only reason you wouldn’t want to take advantage of this is if your roof has deteriorated past the point of no return. If that is the case, it is too late and a cool roof coating won’t help.
