8 Reasons to Choose a Roof Restoration

Whether you are experiencing problems with your dome/flat/low-slope roof or merely looking to get ahead on maintenance, repair and replacement are not your only options. Restoration offers some attractive benefits that will allow you to cost-effectively gain more life from your existing roof. Consider the following benefits of roof restoration before making the decision to replace your entire roof.

  1. Cost savings: Let’s face it—roof replacement is a major investment. The cost of labor and materials are substantial. A restoration – which requires less labor and materials – may cost less than half of a total roof replacement. For example, depending on the roofing system selected, replacement costs between $18 and $22 per square feet, whereas restoration requires costs about $4 to $9 per square foot.

  2. Cool factor: “Cool roof” solutions lower the temperature of your existing roof. Since some coatings are highly reflective, they can greatly increase solar reflectivity, which can significantly reduce interior cooling costs, lower HVAC maintenance costs, and increase the life of your HVAC equipment.

  3. Tax benefits: Restorations are financed through maintenance rather than capital budgets, which is a strong tax advantage. As a maintenance expense, a roof restoration means you can immediately expense your costs. Further, depending on where you live, there could be more tax advantages in the form of tax credits and rebates available for energy-efficient improvements, such as ENERGY STAR® qualification and LEED point contribution.

  4. Multiple options: There are numerous, cost-effective restoration options available depending on your type of roofing system.

  5. Safety: With some roofing systems, a restoration can upgrade your roof to a Class A fire rating. You’ll not only enhance the safety of your building, you may also be able to lower your cost of insurance.

  6. Less Mess: Roof Replacement can be noisy and disruptive. Restoration is typically less intrusive to the people working in your  building. Restoration is also faster and cleaner.

  7. Additional warranty: Many restoration systems are warranteed for up to 10-15 years. 

  8. Think green: With restoration, there will be far less materials going in to already full landfills. You’ll improve the sustainability of your building since you’ll be reusing your existing roof.
