Helpful tips and advice for home maintenance from your roof to your porch.
Roof coatings have become a proven option for roofing contractors looking to maintain and restore aging roofs.
Roof coatings are not a cure-all that will correct every roofing problem roofers will encounter, but when they are properly applied and maintained, they will go a long way to sustaining the life of your roof.
Consider the benefits:
Increased roof life
Boyd Construction Co Inc can repair, coat and restore moderately aged roofs to a maintainable condition. They can even restore roofs that have been leaking if the amount of wet insulation is relatively low and they can identify, remove and patch the affected areas before coating.
Monitoring and timely performance of maintenance work, the roof might be suited for subsequent re-coating projects to even further extend the roof's life.
Reflective coatings can slow the affects of ultraviolet (UV) and heat aging of roofing membranes by reducing rooftop temperatures.
Reduced construction debris. When a roof coating is applied at the right time in a roof's life cycle, it can delay the need for costly replacement, as well as prevent the need to tear off and dispose of the old insulation and roofing membrane.
Reduced energy use. The reflective properties of many coatings result in decreased roof temperatures and energy use requirements during daytime hours, reducing your energy costs.
Aesthetic improvements. Rather than replacing an unsightly, aging roof for aesthetic purposes, you can improve the appearance of a roof that is visible from the ground or adjacent buildings through the application of a coating.
Using carefully selected coating products and applications in these affected areas can prolong the life of the entire roof system. Without implementing this sustainable approach, spot deterioration can lead to wet insulation, leaks, structural deterioration, and the need for premature replacement.
