Roof Restoration can be a great intermediate option for building owners that need to make the current roof last longer because a full replacement or recovery system is not in the budget for the near future.
These systems can be used over many membrane types including conventional “built-up”, smooth/granular surfaced modified bitumen, EPDM rubber, sprayed polyurethane foam, thermoplastic single-ply membranes, and most metal roofs.
A restoration system is typically a fully adhered coating with an expected service life of up to 10 years. Some of these materials can applied as "renewable systems" be depending on the specification selected and the type of substrate. It is important to note that there are several different variations of coatings that can be applied to an existing flat roof designed to accomplish specific goals.
Aluminum and acrylic coatings for instance are designed to provide greater reflectivity, lowering the temperature of the roofing layer and therefore slowing its aging process. These reflective coatings, can improve the building’s energy efficiency and lessen surface temperature, but do not add any additional waterproofing. On the other hand, there are SEBS elastomeric systems that will produce a cool, white roof while at the same time adding reinforced waterproofing to the existing roofing system.
