Making old roofs as good or better than new again
Can your old roof be made new again? Imagine if your old roof was new again with 10, 15, or 20 additional years of service life. And for a much lower cost than a re-roof. And to add icing to the cake, you can also save money on energy costs with a proper roof restoration. Sound too good to be true? It’s not … it is true.
Let’s look at an old asphalt built-up roof as an example. In contrast, it is a fantastic roof system. That material can draw in and hold onto heat if you have ever been on one during the heat of the Arizona summer. You can feel the heat through your shoes. That same heat is going into the space as well. And that heat needs to be removed by the HVAC system. That is not free! It costs money to run your HVAC, and the more you run it., the more costly it is.
By applying a truly reflective roof coating system on your commercial building. With proper roof preparation and base coat and or primer. The roof is sealed up; the existing materials are encapsulated and protected from future deterioration. Doing this will extend the service life of your commercial roof. The additional service life years depend on the millage of coatings you have applied.
And when the roof restoration is done correctly. The roof surface goes from a heat-absorbing surface to a heat-reflecting surface. Now your HVAC system has less heat to remove. It works less and saves you real money. If not, you personally, as the owner, then your tenants would appreciate a lower electric bill.
