RESTORE, DON’T REPLACE
Fluid Applied Roof Restoration will extend the useful service life of your low slope roof. Delivering the lowest life-cycle costs.
Whether you are a Community Association Board Member, a Business Owner or Property Management Company for either Commercial Buildings or Condominiums, you should be aware of what solutions are available for your roofing needs. We’ve seen many communities and board members who, despite needing new roofs, put off this invasive and expensive project in the hopes of finding more affordable alternatives. So what do you do when your roof is beyond repair but you can’t afford a new one? What solutions can a roofing company provide that are cost effective?
In today’s world of technology breakthroughs there are a variety of innovative roofing options that are changing the industry and giving customers more affordable alternatives than ever. Liquid roof coatings for example have gained popularity mostly because of their cost effectiveness costing significantly less than a complete re-roofing project.
Benefits of a Liquid Restoration Membrane “LRM”
Our roofing experts at DERO Roofing serving Southwest Florida works with building owners and managers every day to decide the best roofing solution to protect their facility. We often run into commercial roofing systems that are older but still in relatively good shape. These building owners and managers usually decide to install an LRM to save money and restore their commercial roofing system.
The 8 R’s of Restoration
Restoration Extends Your Roof’s Life
Commercial roofs typically last about 20 years. Restoration can add 10 to 20 years of life to your current roof system.
Restoration Helps Prevent Catastrophic Loss
Ignoring the fact that your roof is deteriorating doesn’t make the problem go away. It can only get worse. The more time passes, the greater the potential damage and the more it costs to restore it. At some point the only option will be total replacement. Continued neglect can put your home or business owners at risk.
Restoration is Renewable
LRM applications create a highly flexible, UV Resistant, Seamless & Monolithic membrane that can be renewed further, thus extending the life of the roof and your warranty coverage.
Restoration is More Sustainable
Millions of tons of roofing waste end up in landfills annually. Because LRM allows you to keep your existing roof, restoration is more environmentally friendly. It can also make your building more energy efficient and may help it qualify for ENERGY STAR or LEED Credits.
Restoration Saves Money
Without the need to tear off the existing roof and replace it, you save money in labor and materials.
Restoration Minimizes Project Duration & Disruption
With an LRM, there is far less disruption to your building property and the tenants. The project duration can also be up to 30% shorter than a roof replacement.
Restoration is Considered Maintenance
Since a LRM is considered commercial roof maintenance there is no need to tear it off in the future. In the United States a commercial building can only have up to two roofs installed. Since a LRM is not considered a roof system it doesn’t add to your current roof count and can be reapplied multiple times while staying within your building codes.
Restoration Reduces Your Energy Costs
Part of the Energy Star® Cool Roof Solution, Solvent-Free Silicone Coatings help conserve energy and extend the life cycle of your roof. Using white silicone or acrylic roof coatings can save building energy use by as much as 15% to 35%.
