Fast, Economical, and Resilient Solutions for Roof Leaks
When dealing with a leaky commercial roof, finding the right product that can be applied quickly, is imperative to preventing long-term damage to your building and equipment. Waiting too long will most likely cost you more, as uncontrolled moisture can damage your roof to the point where a full and costly replacement is necessary.
Because of its exposure to the elements, the roof is the most important—and most vulnerable—part of a building. Wind and rain, ice and snow, U.V., extreme heat or cold can all take their toll on roofs and cause leaks or other failures. Many building owners and managers assume that their best option to fix a leaky roof is to replace it altogether, but this is not always the case. In many circumstances, simpler, less expensive restoration processes can repair roof damage while strengthening the roof against future damage.
In this article, we'll discuss the kinds of conditions that can cause roof damage, the comparative advantages of roof restoration or replacement, when to restore your roof, and the best sealant and coating products for restoring a damaged roof.
Save Energy with Topps White Roof Coatings
Often, building managers and roofing contractors decide to turn to roof coatings in order to repair or prevent a problem. However, coating your roof doesn’t only prolong its life. It actually makes your roof a better, more energy-efficient part of your building. White roof coatings can have a substantial impact on the temperature of your building, resulting in significant energy cost savings.
The use of time-tested and climate-proven products like our Topps Seal® white roofing coating, an ENERGY STAR® certified product, dramatically drops the heat island effect of your roof and can result in significant energy savings on cooling bills long into the future. On hot, sunny summer days, the sun can heat up dry, exposed urban surfaces, such as roofs and pavement, to temperatures 50–90°F (27–50°C) hotter than the air.
