Nowadays, more and more companies are making the shift to making their operations as environmentally friendly as possible, even their buildings. In response to that, the roofing services industry has followed suit and is continuously making environmentally friendly roofing products. One of these products are the roof coatings that are used in commercial roofs, which are said to be able to help reduce a building’s environmental impact.
They Can Reduce Construction Debris
Recent estimates have shown that most roofing projects tend to generate 40% of the construction wastes that enter landfills.
By applying the right amount of roof coating to your commercial roof, you can extend the system’s lifespan, putting off the need for a costly roof replacement or repair project for a few more years. This is all possible thanks to the roof coating blocking the negative effects of ultraviolet (UV) light and heat aging your roofing system. Apart from that, roof coatings can also prevent the need to remove and dispose of the roof’s old insulation and membrane.
They Can Reduce Energy Use
On the other hand, if you’re looking to reduce your building’s energy use, roof coatings have reflective and emissive properties. This means that apart from reducing construction debris, they can also help your building become more energy-efficient. This is made possible by the roof coating’s ability to decrease a roof’s temperature and energy use requirements during the daytime hours, which helps reduce the load on your HVAC systems. This allows you to greatly decrease your heating and cooling bills for the rest of the year.
