Which Coating is Best To Fix a Commercial Roof
There are many factors to consider when deciding which roof coating is best for your roof. For many business owners, price is a huge consideration. For others, tax rebates or durability are major factors. No matter what considerations you have, Lone Star Roofing can help you determine what kind of coating to use.
One of the best commercial roof coatings out there is the elastomeric roof coating. This low cost but highly effective roof coating solution is Energy Star rated and can help you qualify for tax credits. It offers many advantages such as:
- Stops leaks
- Preserves existing roof
- Extends the life of the roof
- Is renewable
- A 15 year warranty
- Reduces heating and cooling costs
- Over time pays for itself.
Aluminum coatings are another commercial roof coating to keep in mind. It can help you classify your roof as an EPA cool roof if properly installed. Because it reflects sunlight it helps keep your roof cool in the summer and protects it from damage.
The most energy efficient roof coating is the white roof coatings. Silicone, S.E.B.S.,urethane or acrylic bases form a water tight coating over the entire roof. These roofs outperform even the highly reflective aluminum roofs in energy efficiency. Just like the elastomeric coating, the white roof coating saves your pocket book when it comes to cooling the building.
As to durability, many of these commercial roof coatings can extend the life of your roof for ten years or more with proper maintenance. So although you might have a larger upfront cost, the extended life of your roof pays for itself. For most business owners the tax credits alone make using a commercial roof coating worth the investment.
