The Top 5 Benefits Of Industrial Coatings For Your Roof

Whether you own a commercial building or you are managing one, the upkeep of the property can be an arduous task. One particularly important and maintenance-laden project is the upkeep of your roofing system. When it comes to commercial or industrial buildings, a roof can be an extremely costly and time-consuming component of building management. After all, your roof is responsible for taking the brunt of weathering and acts as the first line of defense for the rest of the structure.

If you are looking for a way to improve the longevity of your commercial roofing system without investing in an entire re-roofing project, an industrial coating can be the perfect solution. A coating allows you to retain your existing roof while protecting it against damages including corrosion and weathering.

Due to the easy application of industrial coatings, they are widely used for roofing systems around the globe. If you are considering the addition of an industrial coating to your commercial or industrial roof, check out the following five benefits that these incredible products provide.

#1 Extreme Protection Against The Elements

Mother nature can throw a lot at your roof. From hail storms to strong winds to snowy winters, your roof has to take on whatever the weather throws its way. Over time, this can lead to corrosion, tearing, and other degradation issues with most roofing systems. If you have a flat or low-slope roof, which is common on many industrial and commercial buildings, water ponding can also become an issue. The end result is a ragged roofing system that no longer provides ideal protection for your commercial building.

Conversely, when you add an industrial coating to your roof, you can ensure that it is protected against anything nature brings. Because a roof coating is monolithic, there are no seams or patches to create weaknesses. The durability of our elastomeric coatings means your roofing system will be guarded against common issues that most roofs face. For example, our coatings provide a watertight seal. This helps to ensure that any rainwater that does fall or pool on your roof does not create any corrosion. The coatings are also applied directly to your roofing system which means that they are extremely adept at holding up against strong winds. They are also UV reflective, which means they won’t crack and curl during the high heat of summer.

#2 Reduction of the Signs of Aging

As your roof ages, it can begin to look rough and can detract from the aesthetics of your building. If you want to give your commercial building a facelift but you don’t want to spend the money on a whole new roofing system, an industrial coating is a must.

Once your roof has been cleared of any debris, a coating is applied directly to the surface. This coating adds new life to your old roof and mitigates the normal signs of aging. You are left with a roof is that appealing and looks brand new.

#3 Improved Energy Efficiency

Industrial coatings allow you to improve your building’s energy efficiency. When it comes to warehouses and other large commercial buildings, reducing energy bills can go a long way in improving profits.

An industrial coating is reflective and therefore lowers the amount of energy you need to use to keep the building cool. The coating also seals in heated air during the winter months. You undoubtedly spend a large amount on heating and cooling each month, cut that cost dramatically with a new roof coating.

#4: Cost Effective Solution

Unlike the installation of an entirely new roofing system, adding an industrial coating is a very cost-effective solution. You do not need to spend copious amounts of money on roofing materials and the long hours of labor a roof replacement project costs.

Instead, our industrial coatings are extremely affordable and application is simple. The coating sprays onto your existing roofing system and cures in place. This process is efficient as well, which means that you do not need to waste time and money shutting down your building for a major roofing overhaul. Instead, you can continue to focus on the work you need to do while a roof coating is adeptly applied.

#5: Environmentally Friendly Roofing Product

When you tear off an old roof and install a brand new one, you not only are spending large dollar amounts on materials and labor, but you also are contributing to landfill waste. Adding an industrial coating instead keeps harmful materials out of the already burdened landfills of our nation. This makes a roof coating an environmentally sound choice.

Not only that, but when compared to a lot of the toxic products utilized in commercial roofing, a coating has low VOCs and is designed to have the least impact possible on the environment. This makes a roof coating a sound choice for any business who is focused on becoming more green. When you add in the energy saving benefits of a roof coating, you magnify that effect.
