Wondering if Your Single-Ply Is A Candidate for a Roof Restoration System?

Often times the roof top is the most neglected component when it comes to properly maintaining a building. Since it is literally “out of sight, out of mind”, it is easy to overlook until a leak occurs, forcing you to go on the roof top and inspect it. Fortunately, most often it is not too late to restore and fix your existing single-ply roof to new. National Coatings’ single-ply roof restoration systems extend the lifespan of your current roof, lower roof maintenance costs throughout the years, and if maintained properly in the future, these systems can be renewed to avoid a tear-off.

Below is a list of 3 of the most common indicators your single-ply roof is in need of a roof restoration system:

  1. Leaks 
    The most obvious of all - when water penetrates the inside of your building you need to do something quickly. Determining the location of the leak can sometimes be difficult but a professional roof inspector can help.
  1. Deterioration
    Deterioration can include several different issues including: blisters, delamination, holes, mechanical abuse areas, defects of the roof membrane, severe chalking and more. If you notice any of the issues listed above, contact usor call 800-423-9557 immediately so we can evaluate your roof and hopefully provide a roof restoration solution so you avoid a tear-off. 
  1. Failing Joints and Seams
    Joints and seams need to be undamaged, watertight and intact. They need to be flexible in order to expand and contract with the roof’s fluctuations. Seam failure can be the number one cause for damage to the roof as water can easily penetrate these areas when they begin aging, chalking and losing their durability and flexibility. It’s important to check all joint locations at walls, equipment base flashings (HVAC equipment, skylights, etc…) and near pipe penetrations. Make sure all seams holding your single-ply roofing together are working effectively.

If your roof is experiencing any of the issues listed above, you will want to consider an AcryShield Roof Maintenance (ARM) Systemor an AcryPly Roof Restoration System, so you don't have to replace and tear-off your roof later - this will save you thousands of dollars.
