If your commercial building’s roof is aging, leaking or cracked, a roof restoration might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Are you the facility manager, building supervisor or owner of a commercial or industrial building?
We understand that your top priorities are to maintain a safe work environment while managing costs. The Bloomfield Construction Commercial Roofing team has been providing high-quality commercial roofing solutions for more than 27 years. Our team can evaluate your roof’s needs, and help you understand if a roof coating restoration is right for your building.
What is roof coating restoration?
Roof restoration has become a popular, cost-effective solution that reduces the need for a full tear off and roof replacement. Commercial roof coating is a roof membrane – typically silicone – that is fluid-applied to the existing roofing membrane, filling in cracks, blisters, seams and any vulnerable areas of your roofing. This restoration then becomes the top layer, adding years to the building’s exterior. Restoration is resident to molding, ponding water, mildew and staining — protecting your roof from avoidable damage.
What types of buildings can a roof restoration be applied to?
Roof restoration can work for a wide range of low-slope and metal roofs on commercial and industrial buildings. The process can be applied on nearly any flat roofing material including metal, spray polyurethane, modified bitumen, rubber and more.
5 Reasons to Consider Commercial Roof Coating
- Cost Effective
Fully replacing an industrial roof can be very expensive, and in many cases — it’s unnecessary. Roof restoration provides quality protection for your building and can decrease your costs by as much as 50% compared to a roof replacement.
- Long-Term Investment
Roof restoration is a solution that’s built to last and protects your building for years to come. Traditional flat roofing can be impacted by ponding water after a heavy rain. It also expands and contracts throughout the seasons. This can cause adhesives to delaminate, rubber seams to bubble and leak — ultimately aging the roof more quickly. Roof coatings, on the other hand, are made to withstand ponding water and maintain their flexibility; this eliminates aging related to seasonal change.
Additionally, high temperature and UV light can cause traditional flat roofs to crack, chalk and degrade. This isn’t a problem with a coated roof; it will reflect UV light, decreasing your building’s cooling costs and extending the life of your roof.
- Less Waste and Mess – Better for the Environment
Roof tear-offs are a leading cause of landfill waste, resulting in millions of tons of waste each year. For some roofs, it’s an unnecessary, wasteful and expensive process. Completing a full roof replacement can also cause disruptions to the daily operations of your business as the construction crews are removing old materials and hauling up the new equipment.
Restoring your roof will significantly decrease the waste and mess of the project. We work with the existing roof, restore its materials and properly coat it. This restores the integrity of your building’s exterior.
A roof replacement can be seen as two projects in one: fully tearing off the old roof and building a brand-new one. Because a complete tear-off isn’t necessary with roof coating, the project can be completed in a fraction of the time that a roof replacement would take. This saves you on labor costs!
- Great Warranty Options
Some facility managers may be concerned that the coated roof will not last as long as a complete roof replacement. Our team guarantees the roof craftsmanship, and great warranty options can provide extra peace of mind. Ten, 15- and 20-year warranties are available, depending on the thickness of the roof restoration-coating application.
There are many benefits of selecting a roof restoration over a roof replacement. If you are looking for a cost-effective roofing solution for your industrial building, give us a call.
