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!
