Roof restoration is half the cost of roof replacement and can extend the life of a commercial or industrial roof.

Rooftop Optimization

Roof restoration is half the cost of roof replacement and can extend the life of a commercial or industrial roof to the lifetime of the building. These specialty coatings are ENERGY STAR® rated to reduce the absorption of heat from the sun, drastically reducing roof surface temperatures, in turn saving you money on interior cooling costs.

Benefits of Rooftop Optimization

Reduced Energy Costs

White roof coatings can reflect 80-90% of the sun’s UV rays and diminish the flow of heat to your building. This measure reduces the workloads of HVAC systems during warm summer months and cuts interior cooling costs by up to 20%.

Low-Cost Alternative

Roof replacement can cost anywhere from $5 to $15 per sq. ft. Roof restoration provides all the benefits of a new roof for 50-70% less by installing a roof coating system on your building.

Extends Roof Life

The average commercial roof only lasts about 20 years, but the addition of a coating system can prolong a roof’s serviceable life by up to 20 additional years.

Stops Leaks

Elastomeric coatings provide aged roof membranes with a protective, waterproof barrier that stops leaks and improves performance. If properly installed and maintained, a coating system has the potential to be recoated numerous times.

Environmentally Friendly

Commercial roof tear-offs contribute millions of tons of waste to landfills each year. In contrast, there is no tear-off required prior to the application of a commercial roof coating system, allowing you to reuse existing roofing materials with minimal impact on the environment.

Tax Benefits

Roof coating applications are viewed by the IRS as a maintenance and repair item and thus are not considered a new roof or roof replacement. The owner of the building may expense the project in its entirety the year of the application.

Utility Rebates

Depending on location, many utility companies may offer a rebate for roof coating projects of up to $0.50/sq. ft., based on the project size. The customer may also receive a rebate based on dollars per kilowatt reduction.

Top Rooftop Optimization Applications

Energy saving solutions to repair or replace rooftops exist for all types of commercial and industrial applications. 

High-quality, ENERGY STAR® rated, fluid-applied roof coating restoration systems are proven to stop leaks.

Flat Roofs

High-quality, ENERGY STAR® rated, fluid-applied roof coating restoration systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce energy consumption, withstand ponding water, and extend roof life.

Metal roofs require fluid-applied roof restoration systems specifically designed for this roofing material.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofs require fluid-applied roof restoration systems specifically designed for this roofing material. These ENERGY STAR® rated restoration systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce energy consumption, prevent rust and corrosion, and extend roof life.

Polyurethane spray foam-roof coating systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce building energy consumption & increase R-value.

Commercial & Industrial Roofs

Polyurethane spray foam-roof coating systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce building energy consumption, increase R-value, improve structural integrity, extend roof life, and costs less than a conventional roof replacement.

Urethane-silicone, high-solids silicone, and spray polyurethane foam restoration solutions are able to restore and protect.

Smooth & Gravel Built-up Roofs

As these roofs near the end of life, the asphalt dries out and cracks, and flashing details begin to fail. Inevitably leaks can result in the building. Urethane-silicone, high-solids silicone, and spray polyurethane foam restoration solutions are able to restore and protect built-up roofs.

Fluid-applied restoration systems stop leaks, reduce energy consumption, and extend roof life.

Concrete Roof Decks

Concrete is highly susceptible to moisture intrusion caused by aging and other structural issues. This intrusion leads to cracks, spalling, swelling, and overall degradation of the material, thus allowing for water to enter the building. Fluid-applied restoration systems stop leaks, reduce energy consumption, and extend roof life.

Fluid-applied restoration systems are proven to stop leaks and reduce energy consumption.

EPDM Roofs

Black-colored membranes tend to trap heat from the sun, causing elevated temperatures within underlying structures. As the material breaks down, seams and other flashing details begin to fail, eventually causing leaks. Fluid-applied restoration systems are proven to stop leaks and reduce energy consumption.
