Benefits of Roof Coatings

A roof coating is an extra layer of protection placed on an already completed roof that can give it a longer lifespan. There are many different types of roof coatings including acrylic, silicone, polyurethane, elastomeric, and asphalt. Each has its benefits and downsides, but overall roof coatings for commercial buildings can be extremely beneficial. We’ve listed the top 3 benefits of roof coatings.

Energy Savings

A roof with a white or reflective coating will not absorb the heat from the sun’s rays, it will reflect them out. In the summer, this means that the coating will keep your building from warming and help you save on energy to cool your commercial space. In turn, you will save money on your electricity bill each month and decrease your carbon footprint!

Protects Against Leaks

Adding a roof coating gives an extra layer of protection from leaks due to physical damage. If there are already small damaged areas, roof coatings can fill those to protect your roof for the future. Additionally, a roof coating can also protect your roof against mold and mildew which can also cause leaks over time.

Extended Roof Life

Since roof coatings can protect your roof from damage, they can also extend the life of your roof. By using a roof coating, your commercial roof will have an additional layer of protection from elements like snow, ice, and hail. By extending the life of your roof you can wait years before replacing your roof again, leaving money available for other projects.

If you’re looking for a way to extend the life of your commercial roof or protect your roof from leaks, a roof coating might be the best solution for you. You’ll also benefit from energy and cost savings. The roofing experts at B&M Roofing of Colorado are available to answer your commercial roofing questions! Contact us today at 303.443.5843.
