Are you looking to protect your home or business from water infiltration? If so, you should strongly consider a roof coating and painting the exterior.
Protex Roofing Services is an Progressive certified coating contractor. We offer many different types of coatings with different levels of warranties.
Coatings are usually a much more affordable option than reroofing. Coasting systems can provide a slew of benefits to your roof; for starters, it will help prevent moisture from seeping in, which in turn helps prevent leaks, mold and mildew growth and other unwanted repercussions caused by water infiltration. What’s more, it will help limit the amount of maintenance you’ll need to do on your roof.
MAKING ROOFS LAST LONGER
According to a 1996 study by Simpson & Gumpertz, the life expectancy of most popular roof systems is between 11 and 14 years. The chart below shows various popular roofing systems and the impact of roof restoration vs. tearing off and replacing the roof.
Roof restoration can increase the service life to your roof 5-15 years longer than a tear off/roof replacement. Further, you can continue to do restorations on sound roofs to further extend the life of the roof. Roof restoration provides a sustainable, easy to maintain roofing membrane without the time, cost, disruption, or safety concerns of tearing off an existing roof and replacing it.
Did you know that roof maintenance systems are fully tax deductible as an operating expense? One of the key advantages of a restoration system over a new roof system is in how it is classified by the IRS. Restoration is classified as a maintenance, and in most cases it can be expenses in the accounting period in which it is incurred. On the other hand, a new roof system is a capital asset that must be amortized over a 39 year life.
