Worrying about your roof leaking, cracking, or falling victim to Mother Nature is no way to run a business. But Mother Nature has a way of making herself known, giving us a reason to worry about our homes, cars, and even the roofs of our businesses. If your roof is damaged during a storm, replacement may not be necessary.
Unlike residential roofs, commercial roofs can be repaired easily and last for up to 10 to 20 years longer. There is no need for tear-off and disposal of your old roof, with the Conklin Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System your existing roof can be covered with this protective and durable membrane. This system can add years to your roof, allowing you to focus on your business.
At Northeast Roofing Systems LLC, we offer the Conklin Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System to help improve the life of your roof, but there are many other benefits to this roofing membrane as well. In our last blog, we went over the Conklin Spray Polyurethane Foam Roofing System, learned more about that style of roofing and compared it with the Fabric- Reinforced system. We can help you decide which roof is right for your business.
What is Fabric-Reinforced Roofing?
This roofing system is able to be used with many different roofing applications, including uneven roofs. There are four parts to the fabric-reinforcement:
- Base Coat- this is a liquid applied acrylic membrane that adheres tightly to the existing roof.
- Fabric-Reinforcement- a flexible and durable polyester fabric is placed over the base coat, this adds flexibility and strength to the roof.
- Second Base Coat- this base coat seals the fabric thoroughly, allowing the membrane to be complete.
- Top Coat- this white reflective top coat provides protection against the elements year-round, and is energy efficient.
All of these parts work together to give you a protective roof that lasts for years and helps keep Mother Nature from causing too much harm. Due to the durability, flexibility, and protective properties of this roofing system, it is recommended for both new and existing roofs, allowing them to last longer and keep you from dealing with leaks and other roofing problems. Depending on your building and its roof, we can offer different varieties of coating, allowing you to get the best possible roof membrane for your business.
But why is Fabric-Reinforced Roofing so beneficial?
This roofing system from Conklin offers amazing protection that will last. But where do you need protection the most? At the seams, and that is exactly where this roofing system offers the best protection. The seams are where leaks and cracks can start to form after years of wear and tear, but this membrane keeps your seams strong, allowing for your roof to outperform the storm. The Fabric-Reinforced roofing can also protect against wind and hail and is waterproof. This means your roof can take years of Mother Nature’s bullying and come out on top, giving you no need to worry, and helping to keep your business safe from leaks that can lead to bigger problems.
But saving you and your business from the natural elements is not all this roofing system can do, you can benefit in a few other ways as well.
There are many different ways the Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System can save you money, and every business owner loves the sound of that! If you are looking for a solution to your failing roof without having extreme costs to take into account, this may be the solution for you!
First of all, this roofing type can be place over your existing roof, as we have already stated. This means a few things. It eliminates the need to replace your entire roof, which would cost your more money to have the roof removed, disposed of, and slowly replaced. During the time it takes to get your roof replaced, you may have to close your business for a few days, which will lose you money and become inconvenient. Replacing a roof can take a long time, so the fact that this system can get rid of the entire replacement process makes it even more appealing.
The white reflective top coat is, well, reflective. This means that it repels UV rays that could cause damage to your roof, helping it last longer. The Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System reflects about 84 percent of the sun’s heat, which helps to keep your building cooler and allows your to save on air conditioning.
Reflecting the sun’s heat will help keep the roof cooler, the building cooler, and reduce your energy bill. All you need to worry about is keeping your roof white! This roofing membrane is also low maintenance, meaning all that is needed is an annual cleaning to keep it performing adequately. This is also a great reason to invest in this roofing type, it requires minimal maintenance.
As mentioned many times throughout this blog, this roofing system lasts a long time and adds years to your existing roof. But when your Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System does require a revamp, it is extremely easy to do a recoat. This saves you from ever needing a new roof, saving you time, money, and the impact construction may have on your business. Often times, your roof can be recoated for the entire life of your roof, again, saving you money.
That is a lot of money saved, all because of the superb protection of the Conklin Fabric-Reinforced Roofing System. This roofing membrane is a great way to keep your roof protected, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to run your business smoothly while saving money.
