Many property owners believe their metal roofs need to be replaced once they begin to show signs of age and wear. Replacing a commercial roof is an expensive project and may not be the most effective investment. The methods available for metal roof restoration services offer the property owner an attractive roof for much less that a new roof without sacrificing safety or quality.
Metal Roof Coatings
While there are several ways to restore a property owner’s metal roof, spray-on coatings are one of the most cost-effective ways to eliminate roof leaks. Care must be taken to select a high-quality product, in order to get long-term performance. Careful installation and attention to detail is also a must, in order to achieve a completely waterproof system. Compared to other systems, metal roof coatings are an effective and cost-efficient way to restore a metal roof.
Metal Roof Restoration
The process of restoration is fast and will not disrupt business traffic because there is no demolition of your roof needed. Professional restoration adds at least 10-15 years to the life of the existing roof and comes with extensive warranties. It is an environmentally sensible option that does not waste viable materials and will improve energy efficiency.
Many customers have discovered the warranties with a restoration to be more generous than those provided when a new roof is installed. There are three primary types of restoration services available for customers to choose from: Conklin’s PVC Heat Welded Membrane, Spray Foam, or Conklin Elastomeric Spray-On Coatings. All of the options meet required building standards and may be tax deductible.
