Roof coating application is a necessary step toward building sustainability. Whether or not you are passionate about the environment, you ought to do your share to help preserve it for posterity and mitigate the prevailing effects of climate change on all of us.
Apart from making it easier to file a roof insurance claim in case of a fire, adding an appropriate coating can reduce your building’s negative environmental impact through the following:
A coating can turn your ordinary commercial roof into a cool one. Enhancing thermal properties of your roofing system renders sunlight less of a factor in the indoor climate of your building.
In other words, a coated roof can maintain a low temperature, despite being constantly exposed to the sun, and can transmit less heat inside. Other things being equal, your HVAC expenditure would go down and so will your building’s carbon footprint.
Boosting Material Longevity
The addition of a coating will pause the natural aging process of your roof. Considering the usually high new metal roofing cost, making your existing roofing system last for as long as possible can not only keep your bank account green but also make Nature smile.
When coated, your roof will have a reinforced defense against the elements, protecting the substrate from weather. Since it will no longer get hot and stay hot the way it used to be, your commercial roof will be less susceptible to thermal cycling.
Minimizing Construction Waste
Investing in a high-quality coating will delay the need for a roof replacement. Therefore, your current roof will not add more problems to worsening landfill congestion.
Even if you have recyclable materials, some parts of your roof may not be suitable for reuse. The sustainable solution is to keep your entire roofing system aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound, so all of its components stay where they are.
