Commercial Roof Coating vs. Full Replacement of a Commercial Roof

Does your roof require repair? If you notice you have a problem with your roof, you might be unsure about whether you should completely replace it or coat it. The right choice for your roof depends on the specific situation, building type, and budget goals. There are benefits of both options that should be considered before investing in replacing or coating your roof. 

What Is the Difference Between Roof Coating and Roof Replacement?

Roof coating is when a thin layer of liquid is applied to the roofs sure to ensure it’s the roof is protected from the elements of nature. Roof coating works best if your roof doesn’t have any insulation issues with major leaks and is in overall okay shape but needs resurfacing.

Whereas roof replacement is when the roof is completely ripped off down to the substrate and new materials are used (TPO, EPDM, PVC, Metal) to create your new roof system. This process is pricier, but it might be necessary for buildings with deteriorating roofs. 

Benefits of Commercial Roof Coating 

Commercial roof coating is a seamless method of weatherproofing the roof of your building from any unforeseen damages. This method involves spraying or rolling to ensure that the coating spreads evenly and reaches every corner of your building’s roof surface.  There are multiple benefits associated with a commercial roof coating system, including: 

1. Extended Life Span:

A roof coating can add several years of life to your roof. You will save both time and money when you invest in roof coating. Plus, it will also save you from some unnecessary future expenses.

2. Durability:

 Roof coating help your roof stand the test of time and not require frequent replacement or repair. With 15 & 20 year warranties, roof coating ensures that any damage to your building due to leaks, holes, or weather is avoided.

3. Customization:

We can customize the coating system of your choice for the roof coating processes, allowing you to choose from silicone, acrylic, water base, reenforced or non reenforced coating systems. 

4. Good Insulation:

Polyiso insulation ensures that your building will reduce heat loss and help reduce solar heat gain. TPO, PVC roofing will save your roof from elements of nature like rain and sun. 

5. Solar Reflection:

 If your building is in a hot zone area, a roof coating can help reflect the sun’s rays, which allows your building to stay cooler. This will ultimately help you save on the business utility bills. Not to mention the company will have a lower carbon footprint.
