How to Determine Whether to go with a Roof Coating or Roof Replacement

Roof coating or roof replacement

Hearing, "You need a roof replacement," often strikes fear into the hearts of home and business owners. Suddenly they envision heavy construction going on endlessly, their business being disturbed, a mess all over the place, and their hard-earned dollars flying out the window.

Don't despair. One of the best things you can do as a commercial or residential property owner to overcome that fear is to be informed. So we're delighted you stopped here to learn.

Depending on the roof type you have, people often consider roof replacement when their roof gets between 15-25 years old. Barring certain kinds of damages, a roof coating is a better option than roof replacement.

Roof coating protects, seals, and restores the appearance of your roof.

  • Your roof can curtail the effects by being resistant to snow, wind, ice, rain, UV rays, and hail, it's less prone to wearing and tearing again.
  • The seal will prevent leaks.
  • Increased longevity of your roof.
  • Your customers or neighbors will look at your roof and how awesome it appears that they'll think you spent thousands on a new roof!

Roof coatings are also environmentally-friendly and economical and do not require ridding all the materials from your current roof. That, of course, means minimal waste. It also means you can typically carry on with business as usual while your roof coating job takes place.

Not all roofs will qualify for roof coatings, however. In any case, a professional roofing company worth their weight in salt, values honesty and integrity.

When deciding between roof coating or a roof replacement, it's essential to sit down with a qualified, certified, licensed, and insured roofing contractor to discuss the best option for you.
