Why We Love Re Roofing (And You Should, Too!)

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Sep 04, 2014 @ 01:00 PM


Re Roofing saves money

Adding a roof coating system to restore your existing aged or failing roof is 50-70% less costly than a tradition roof replacement. Roof coating systems do not require you to close your business during application, allowing you to conduct business as usual and create sales during the installation phases.

Re Roofing saves time

Installing a roof coating system is much less labor intensive as a roof tear-off. A roof tear-off requires tearing off the existing roof substrate, gathering and removing the old roof from the site to a landfill, and then following up with the new construction to build the new roof. These stages require business closures and ideal weather conditions. Installing a roof coating system is minimally disruptive - no seams welding, drilling or nailing is done during installation and no odors or harsh chemicals are used to apply the coating system. It is sprayed on in stages ranging from 3 steps to 5 steps depending on the roof coating system you choose. There are even products such as the AcryShield Quick Set base and top coats, that allow you to apply the coating system during times of light rain and heavy dew – minimizing certain weather related delays.

Re Roofing is Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly

Landfills in America are overly congested. We as a Nation are constantly trying to “recycle”, “reuse” and “go green”. Restoring your existing roof opposed to tearing it off, disposing of it and starting new, is an excellent way to recycling and reusing your current building materials. Many AcryShield roof coatings are LEED compliant for sustainable sites, energy and atmosphere, and materials and resources. AcryShield also has a line of roof coatings that product ZERO VOC’s or volatile organic content – check them out! Many roof coating systems are renewable down 10 to 15 years after the first roof coating system is installed. This allows you to avoid a roof replacement/tear-off indefinitely!

Re Roofing is the Obvious Choice

It is no wonder why we believe re roofing is the best choice for fixing your aged or leaking commercial roof. With money and time savings, as well as, environmental benefits, roof restoration systems are the most ideal. To find out if you can benefit from one of these systems, contact us today!

Elastomeric Roof Coatings

Posted by Nicole Gale on Tue, Aug 12, 2014 @ 11:30 AM

Energy efficiency is a top priority for building owners and tenants in order to reduce energy costs. Now a day there are several methods used to lower energy consumption, which can drastically cut the cost of your energy bill. In the roofing world, elastomeric roof coatings not only provide excellent energy efficiency but also added roof protection against premature failure and a non-intrusive / non-disruptive application process.

Elastomeric Roof Coatings Cut Energy Costs

Elastomeric roof coatings reflective the majority of the heat from the sun away from the building, prohibiting the roof from absorbing a bulk amount of heat.



This allows the interior of the building to remain a cooler temperature without using any electricity. Customers are often surprised with the amount of cost savings a cool roof coating system can provide them. National Coatings did a complete roof restoration job on a Harbor Freight Tools warehouse that was 266,200 square feet and the Facilities Director, Jerry Moore was impressed, “After the National Coatings’ Cool Roof was installed we definitely noticed a difference in building temperature. It’s not a marginal difference, either. It is between 15 and 20 degrees cooler inside the warehouse and store.”


Elastomeric Roof Coatings Protect Against Premature Roof Failure

Elastomeric roof coatings offer added protection to your rooftop similarly to how sunscreen works on your skin. The elastomeric roof coating provides a barrier to the roof surface against the harsh UV rays from the sun. It’s ability to reflect and absorb only a small percentage of heat, allows the rooftop to remain durable and flexible. Without a highly reflective elastomeric roof coating, the sun’s heat would dry out your roof, eventually causing the roofing substrate to crack and tear, as well as, lose its ability to expand and contract, as all roofs must do during temperature fluctuations. The degradation leads to leaks and other damage that will need to be repaired immediately.

Elastomeric Roof Coatings are Non-Disruptive

Another great benefit of using elastomeric roof coatings versus other roofing materials is that the coating systems are applied directly over your existing roof – even if you’ve had a prior roof installed. This gives you the ability to conduct your business as usual. No closures during construction, no timely roof tear-off stages or costs, and minimal noise disruption - no drilling, nailing or seam-welding. Check out some of our case studies on customers that require business to be open 24 hours a day and/or 7 days a week such as Kaiser Permentente and the Arden Fair Mall.
