3 Benefits of Metal Roof Coating and Waterproofing You Can't Afford to Ignore
The maintenance and quality of your roof isn’t something most people think about every day. You simply expect the roof to do the job it was designed to do. The reality, however, is that metal roofs need upkeep just like any other part of your commercial building and, too often, neglect can turn into expensive issues that could have otherwise been prevented with a little attention.
In general, metal roofs require two forms of care: roof coating, and waterproofing. Both are essential in maintaining your roof and, if it’s been a while since you did either one, consider the following three benefits that will help you in prolonging roof life, and reducing maintenance costs over time.
Roof Coating & Waterproofing is Cheaper than Replacement
As a rule, metal roofs typically have a longer life expectancy that other types of roofs. Most building owners don’t think about their metal roof’s integrity unless they notice damage. At that point, it’s usually too late to salvage the roof, which means you’re facing a hefty expense to replace it.
Coating and waterproofing your metal roof are preventative tasks that are cheaper than replacing your entire roof. After the roof has been professionally cleaned, it is coated with a protective maintenance coat to preserve the roof’s cleanliness and integrity.
Though you still may need to replace your roof at some point, routine roof maintenance can significantly prolong the life of your roof to save you money, time, and frustration.
It's Not an Easy Do-It-Yourself Job
Metal roofs are targets for dust, debris, and even certain types of algae. Usually, these contaminants can be removed with a high pressure cleaner or detergent, but the process can be time-consuming and dangerous. It usually requires high access equipment.
It’s better to leave the maintenance to a professional who not only has professional-grade tools, but also the skills and know-how to maintain and care for your roof the correct way. A professional can waterproof and apply a protective coating on the metal roof in less time and for less money than it would take an amateur or general handyman.
Your Roof Looks Newer for Longer
When done the right way, your freshly coated and waterproofed metal roof will look like new and stay that way for longer than if you’d done the work yourself. This boost in curb appeal will certainly work in your favour if you ever decide to sell or rent your commercial building.
In addition, a professional roof refurb company will also look for signs of wear or other defects during the process and alert you to any issues. This way, you’re better positioned to take action on problems before they cause further damage.
