How to Maintain Your Commercial Roof with Recoating
Your commercial roof has an expected lifespan of around 10 or 20 years, but with proper maintenance and recoating, you can sometimes extend that by up to 40 percent.
What is the purpose of roof maintenance?
Commercial flat roof maintenance aims to prolong the roof’s life. Commercial flat roofs protect your commercial building from the elements: of rain, snow, wind, and sun. If a commercial flat roof has been built and maintained correctly, it should last for decades. Commercial roof coating protects against UV rays and weathering that can damage or discolor the surface of a roof.
What causes deterioration on a roof
Different factors can contribute to the deterioration of a commercial flat roof. These factors include tree limbs, high winds, age, and lack of roof maintenance. A commercial roof coating can help protect the roof against these elements by stopping or reducing the amount of water absorbed. The life expectancy of a commercial roof is determined by its location and how often it is maintained. For example, commercial roofs exposed to the sun all year long deteriorate faster than those in more shaded areas. The best way to maintain your commercial roof is by recoating it every 5-7 years for buildings ten years or older.
Do I Need to Call a Professional?
If you are looking for a way to maintain your commercial roof, you must understand how often and when you should recoat your commercial roof. The lifespan of a commercial flat roof coat can last up to 15 or 20 years, but depending on the type of coating, and where you live, many factors will shorten this lifespan. Generally, most commercial roofs need recoating once every 10-12 years, depending on the type of coating and climate. To help extend the life of your commercial roof and keep it looking new, we recommend having your commercial building’s roof evaluated by Factory Direct Roofing annually or if there is any visible wear or damage.
