The Right Roof System Can Cut Your Costs
As a business owner, many of your decisions boil down to cost. Cost analysis is critical to running an effective business, but very difficult to do well. It’s difficult because of the knowledge required to do it effectively—gathering that knowledge takes a huge investment of time. We’ve designed this guide to save you time and provide knowledge on roofing for you. We outline two approaches you can take to cutting costs through roofing in this guide:
- Upfront Costs
- Long-Term Costs
Depending on which costs your business is more concerned with, we’ll recommend different roof systems and solutions.
Are you concerned about saving money right now? Maybe you need to keep some money on hand or aren’t in the position to heavily invest in a new roof right now. Either way, these are some affordable roof options that will help save you money and keep your roof in good shape.
Commercial Roof Coatings
Commercial roof coatings are a straightforward method of extending the service life of your roof. The process of roof coating involves creating a seamless waterproofing layer over your existing roof system. Coatings can be done on nearly every type of commercial roofing system and extend the service life of your roof by up to 20 years. Each coating is done differently because the right coating type depends on the roof. Coating types we offer include:
- Silicone Roof Coating
- PMMA Roof Coating
- Urethane Roof Coating
- Acrylic Roof Coating
Commercial roof coatings usually cost half of the average cost to tear off and replace a roof. The process is also non-intrusive and fast—meaning that your business can continue operation the whole time.
Fluid Applied Roof Restoration
Fluid-applied membrane roofing systems have become an invaluable option for facility owners. Where you can coat an entire roof from fluid-applied systems, they are available for roof restorations as well. These restorations are applied on top of your existing roof’s membrane, which saves you from having to complete an expensive and laborious roof replacement. Keep in mind that not all roofs will qualify to be restored.
Fluid applied roof restorations involve a simple process. We begin by inspecting the roof to make sure it will qualify for restoration, then repair issues with your current roof. Once the surfaces are clean the membrane is installed on the roof surface. Fluid applied restorations are exceptionally well sealed. A fluid applied roof restoration is an affordable roof option that guarantees your facility stays dry.
Repair is the final short-term option for your roof system. While it’s a more temporary solution when compared to the other options, a repair is usually very economical. It’s often the case that a repair is all that is necessary for your roof, especially if it was simply damaged from some kind of accident. Where many roofing companies will push for a full replacement, we’ll always be honest and tell you when a simple repair is all that’s necessary.
We’re ready and available 24/7/365 to respond to all of your commercial roofing repair needs. Never put a repair off—they quickly escalate and turn into issues where a full replacement is necessary.
Alternatively, consider contacting us about preventative maintenance. Preventative maintenance ensures that repairs or replacement don’t ever become necessary
If your business is in a comfortable place, consider a roofing choice that will last into the future. If you’d like to invest more into your roof, these roof system options will help your business cut costs further down the line.
Cost Effective Maintenance
Some roofing types are incredibly simple to repair and maintain as they age. Investing in these materials will save you money while saving your roofing contractors time. Roofing materials we have that are easy to repair include:
- TPO Roofing
- PVC Roofing
- EPDM Roofing
Being able to swap out your roofing keeps repairs simple and affordable. All of these roofs are single ply constructions meaning that it’s easy to cut out and replace sections without compromising the integrity of the rest of the roof.
A key advantage in investing in TPO comes from its energy efficiency. TPO roof systems are the highest rated in their class on the Solar Reflectivity Index. This means that TPO is able to reflect the rays of the sun and keep your building cool, which helps you save on energy costs. If that’s not enough, TPO roofs:
- Have heat-welded seams that offer extreme water resistance.
- Are reinforced by polyester scrim that expand and contract with the building
- Offer an above average puncture resistance when compared to EPDM.
- Have high UV and weather resistance
Finally, TPO is the most affordable option outside of repair, recovery, or roof coating. If roof replacement is an option for your business we highly recommend TPO for all of the reasons mentioned above—you won’t be disappointed.
