Longer roof life, better durability—coatings protect the roof substrate from destructive UV
Reduced maintenance costs over the life of the roof; and coatings can provide the added bonus of being a water-resistant barrier
Better budget management due to predictable life extension of the roof (the opportunity to re-coat the roof rather than replace it)
Reduced installation risks
Minimal disruption to the occupants, operations during application, construction process, saving money in areas other than the roofing materials and application itself
A more desirable and comfortable work environment inside the building
Opportunity for energy credits, tax savings, rebates
*Coatings are considered “restoration” and not a new roof system installation. Therefore they may usually be expenses in the fiscal year during which they are applied instead of amortizing the cost over the life of the roof (as in a new membrane installation). This can be a huge tax benefit to some building owners.
Check with your CPA or CFO to properly apply this information to your own roof situation.
