Roof damage is inevitable. Storms, sun, and age all contribute to wear and tear. Replacing the roof of your business can be costly and time consuming. It can be cheaper to repair the leaks and have a specialized roof coat put on instead. WeatherTite Coatings, Inc. has all the solutions for your commercial roof repair needs. We have been protecting the roofs of Central Florida’s businesses since 1995. Here are our top three reasons we believe you should invest in flat roof coatings for your commercial building.
Commercial Flat Roof Coatings Improve Energy Efficiency
The most common roofing materials are dark in color. Dark colors absorb sunlight, causing heat to become trapped. This trapped heat causes the cooling system of your business to need to work harder to cool the building, increasing your energy bills and costing you money. Roofs that have a lighter color, such as white, help reduce this heat absorption, helping to regulate the temperature of your building naturally. Roof coatings help seal cracks that have appeared on the roof’s surface over time. These cracks cause air to flow in and out of the building, affecting your business’s heating and cooling system. This fluctuation in temperature costs you money over the years.
Roof Coatings Extend Your Roof’s Lifespan
A professionally installed commercial roof has a lifespan of 20 to 40 years. Severe storms, high winds, and rain can all damage your roof, shortening your roof’s lifespan by many years. If you do not make repairs, the damage can get worse. Traditional black tar and gravel coated roofs wear down quickly, and they can be costly to repair. Float coatings are more durable, and they can increase the length of time needed between roof replacements by 10 or 15 years.
Coatings Protect The Interior Of Your Business
Roof leaks can cause significant structural and interior damage to your business. Storms can cause visible damage to roofs, but they can also cause invisible damage. This hidden damage can cause water to become trapped between the roofing materials and the ceiling. Over time, this will degrade the structure, causing water to drip and mold to form. Water damage can weaken the walls and the ceiling. The repairs from these leaks can be costly. Flat coatings help to prevent this damage by preventing moisture from seeping into the roofing materials. Coatings can also prevent mice, birds, or other animals from squeezing through your roof’s cracks.
Replacing a roof can be expensive. Flat roof coatings are cheaper, and we can apply them over almost every existing roof, including metal, concrete, and tar. These coatings can extend the life of your roof, protect your building from heat, water, and animal damage, and they can save you money, both in the short term and long term.
