Benefits of Spray On Commercial Roof Coating

Restoring a commercial roof can be a lengthy and intrusive process—not to mention a significant investment for your company. Fortunately, there are a few ways to help improve the integrity of your commercial roof without performing a full restoration or replacement. 

Commercial roof coating is an effective solution that may help extend the lifespan of your commercial roof—as well as protect your real estate investment. This process is safe for most commercial roofs—and can make a big difference in terms of costs, energy efficiency, and weather resistance.

Before we dive into the benefits of spray on roof coating, let’s first make sure we have a clear understanding of what it is.

What Is Commercial Roof Coating?

Roof coating is a “monolithic, fluid-applied roofing membrane.” Once applied to a commercial roof, it helps protect your roofing system from weather changes and other types of roof damage (e.g. water and chemical). Spray on roof coating may also slow down deterioration, thus lengthening the lifespan of your commercial roof. 

Benefits Of Commercial Roof Coating

This process has many distinct advantages, all of which are worth considering as you begin restoring your commercial roof

  1. Spray On Roof Coating Is Sustainable And Eco-Friendly

Applying spray on roof coating can extend the life of your roof by at least 10+ years. This equals out to less materials and resources utilized to repair your roof. The coating, depending on its color, can also help save on utilities and combat energy waste in your building, thus providing more energy efficiency. 

  1. Commercial Roof Coating Is Weatherproof

We all know that extreme weather can spell bad news for your roof. The Arizona heat, for example, can put added stress on your system, causing it to deteriorate faster. When you use spray on roof coating to protect it, your roof will be better protected against UV rays, excess water from rain, and strong winds that can damage your property. 

  1. Spray On Roof Coating Does Not Disrupt Business Hours

Commercial buildings inherently house businesses. When you repair or replace your roof, there is often a significant amount of noise, dirt, and dust that interrupts daily operations. With spray on coating, your tenants’ businesses can continue as usual. Because the process is non-invasive, you don’t have to worry about heavy hammering, drilling, or other loud noises that can be distracting or an eye sore to your building.

You also won’t need to worry about shutting down your building to perform the work.

Materials Eligible For Commercial Roof Coating 

Not all commercial roofs are eligible for this type of service. However, if you have one of the following materials on your roof, you may qualify for spray on coating:

  • Asphalt (Built-Up)
  • Modified Bitumen
  • Concrete
  • Single-Ply Membrane
  • Metal (can be low or steep slope)
  • Spray Polyurethane Foam

Note that the condition of your roof may also determine your eligibility for spray on coating. If you’re wondering whether or not your property qualifies for this service, call in the pros for a roof assessment.
