Benefits of Re-Roofing or Re-Covering Your Failing Roof using a Roof Coating System Vs Roof Replacement

Spray_pic.pngWhen faced with the decision to decide how to solve your current roofing issues after your building already has a second roof in place, you basically have two options – replace your roof by tearing off the existing roofs and install a new one, or you can re-cover your existing roof with a roof coating system.

Building codes usually allow you to add a second roof to your building if the first roof is failing. Anything after the second roof, you typically need to choose between a roof tear-off/new installation or a roof coating system to restore your current roof to new. Choosing to re-cover your existing roof over the traditional roof tear-off and replacement option, saves the building owner a large amount of time and money and saves the tenants occupying the building, a lot of disruptions and business closures - equaling money.

Roof coating systems are spray applied directly over an existing aged or failing roof substrate, eliminating all removal stages. Roof removal not only takes a great amount of time and effort to remove the roof but you also have to transport the old roof to a landfill. This complete process raises costs because you will be paying for additional labor and removal fees, transportation fees, and landfill and disposal fees.

Acrylic roof coating systems can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars. They create minimal noise and odor disruptions to your business, allowing you to remain open during the ENTIRE installation process and often times come with a 10, 15 or 20-year warranty package to ensure excellent and long term waterproofing capabilities.
