With how the world is today, it’s understandable if you want to make choices for your home that can also help the environment. When it comes to conducting home improvement projects in your home, there are a lot of ways you can help the environment, such as your choices in siding and roofing materials. There’s also another way you can improve your home while aiding the environment and that’s your roof coatings.
In this post, roofing contractors at Roofing by Curry discuss the various environmental benefits of roof coatings.
Your roofers can apply roof coating to an aged roof to restore it to a maintainable condition. Roof coatings can even extend your roof’s lifespan, eliminating the necessity of replacing it in the meantime. This is especially true if reflective coatings are applied since it can slow down the effects of UV rays and heat aging by reducing rooftop temperatures.
Reduces Construction Debris
Roof companies will tell you that around 40% of construction waste enters landfills. Therefore, when roof coating is applied to your roof at the right time in your roof’s lifespan, it can delay the need for a replacement and prevent the need of tear off and disposing of old insulation and roofing membranes. This, in turn, prevents more construction wastes from entering landfills.
Reduced Energy Use
Roof coatings have reflective and emissive properties, which results in a reduction of roofing temperatures and energy requirements during the day. This, in turn, lessens the load on your HVAC system and provides additional comfort for your home without expending too much energy.
Ponding water can occur for many low-slope roofs, which makes your roofing membranes prone to early deterioration and leaks. With a carefully selected roof coating and proper application in the affected areas, the coating can prolong the roofing system’s lifespan and preventing the need for premature replacement.
