What does roof restoration include?
As mentioned, a roof restoration offers any roof it is applied to several benefits that increase its longevity and durability. By using a specially designed coating that acts as another layer on your roof, you can both see an enhancement in curbside appeal while also being able to paint over it with the color of your choosing. Other benefits can consist of:
- Added resistance against hail and wind
- Repairing of leaks and small holes
- Lower electric bills
- Cooler internal environment
- Quieter application
- Saves money in the long term
Roof restorations are largely known to ease the load on air conditioning systems through being a barrier against much of the energy the sun puts on your building. Add to it a light color of paint and you see that benefit increase by a wide margin. Furthermore, while you may see many dents and small holes in your roof, that does not necessarily mean you must get a replacement. A roof restoration will cover most small holes on your roof and also apply to the flashing so you won’t have to spend an exorbitant amount of money on a replacement. Also, roof restorations are proven to save an individual money by preventing the need for constant repairs on spots that are slightly vulnerable.
Should I seal my roof?
Flat roof owners may be familiar with roof sealing, which prevents puddling water from making any significant damage to them. It also does something similar, if not at a lower level, to roof restoration which is applying a layer of coating to deflect UV rays and waterproof it. In fact, sealing your roof is particularly important and should be taken seriously when considered. Whether it’s on a home or business, the property owner should seal their roof to prevent leaks and general standing water from doing any form of significant damage.
A roof restoration, generally applied when the roof has aged somewhat, does something similar. With better materials, the roof restoration is applied with the specific intent on adding years to your roof while making it look good as new. Where a sealing does not add durability as effectively, roof restoration makes it a point to be a definite answer to the elements on a roof that needs a solid tune-up. When you value your roof, trust us to apply a roof restoration onto it that will keep it going for years ahead.
How often should you get your roof done?
When it comes to roof restoration, home and business owners will recognize when they need a roof restoration or their roofer will generally tell them. As it turns out, when there is minimal damage across your roof, perhaps from a hail storm, a roof restoration is often far less expensive. There is some confusion too as to when a roof replacement is appropriate when a roof restoration or repair fails. A solid roofer will determine a roof replacement is necessary when:
- Heavy damage across the roof
- The roof is at an advanced age
- Repairs are being constantly ordered
- Electric bills get high
- The roof becomes unseemly
While a roof restoration can tend to small damages and make your roof appear younger, it cannot handle larger damages and deteriorated materials. An example of that would be a roof restoration that can stop rusting on a metal roof, but if the metal becomes weak then it needs to be replaced. On even shingles, a person is able to get a roof restoration that takes care of small holes and cleans up the shingles to a large margin.
