How an Energy Efficient Roof Can Save You Money

Flat Industrial Roof

As a commercial property owner, you are always looking for a way to remain efficient and save money. One way you can increase your building’s efficiency and cut down on energy costs is to replace your roof! An energy-efficient roof can save commercial property owners money in a number of ways.

How a New Roof Keeps Your Commercial Building Warm

When it comes to roofing, there are a variety of considerations that go into making the right choice for your building. One of the most important factors is insulation. Older roofing materials may not have been as effective in keeping the heat in during the winter, resulting in higher energy bills. A new roof can help to keep your building warm by using modern materials that provide better insulation.

With proper insulation, you don’t have to crank up the thermostat when the temperature drops. On the other hand, older, damaged roofs will cause your heating system to work harder, raising your utility bills.

How a New Roof Keeps Your Commercial Building Cool

In the summer, it’s just as important to keep the heat out as it is to keep the heat in during the winter. A new roof can also help to keep your commercial building cool by using materials that reflect the sun’s rays. This will help to keep the building cooler and reduce the need for air conditioning.

While many people know that the ice and snow of winter can cause roofing damage, it’s important to remember that summer can also cause damage to your commercial roof. UV rays can bleach and discolor your roofing materials which can speed up the degrading of the roofing membrane.

If your roof is damaged and leaking, it can allow the cool air to escape, causing your system to work harder and increasing your cooling bill. Additionally, darker-colored roofing materials will absorb more light energy, which means they absorb more heat. This heat absorption will affect the heat inside your entire building, which will require your air conditioning to work harder to keep the building cool.

With the reflective coatings offered by ACR-1, you can deflect the UV rays and reduce the amount of heat absorbed by the roofing system. This will help decrease your energy usage in the summer.

Other Ways a New Roof Can Save You Money

In addition to keeping your building warm in the winter and cool in the summer, a new roof can also save you money in other ways. For example, a roof with a longer life expectancy will mean that you don’t have to spend money on repairs or roof replacement as often.

Additionally, modern roofing materials can be more reflective than older materials, which means that you’ll need less lighting inside your building. This can lead to significant savings on your energy bills.

Importance of Roof Maintenance

It’s important to remember that a roof is a long-term investment. In order to get the most out of your roof, it’s important to perform regular maintenance. This will help to extend the life of your roof and prevent problems down the road. By performing regular preventative maintenance, you can avoid costly repairs and get decades of use out of your commercial roofing system.

Preventative maintenance is a year-round commitment and will require regular inspections to help catch issues before they become major, more expensive issues. Maintenance requirements for your roofing system will vary based on the season:

Fall Roof Maintenance

Fall roof maintenance is important to keep your roof in good condition. In the fall, you should check for the following:

  • Fallen leaves and other debris that may have collected on your roof
  • Damage to roofing materials caused by wind, rain, or other weather conditions
  • Loose or missing shingles or roof tiles
  • Damaged gutters or downspouts

Winter Roof Maintenance

In winter, you should check for the following:

  • Icicles or roof snow that may be blocking roof drainage
  • Damaged roofing materials caused by ice and snow
  • Water infiltration due to blocked roof drains
  • Loose or missing shingles or roof tiles

Spring Roof Maintenance

In spring, you should check for the following:

  • Damage to roofing materials caused by wind, rain, or other weather conditions
  • Blooming plants or trees that may be affecting roof drainage
  • Peeling paint or other signs of damage on the roof surface
  • Evidence of animals nesting on the roof

Summer Roof Maintenance

In the summer, you should check for the following:

  • Damage to roofing materials caused by wind, rain, or other weather conditions
  • Blooming plants or trees that may be affecting roof drainage
  • Peeling paint or other signs of damage on the roof surface

This is a good time to reapply coatings or sealants to prepare the roof for the colder months.
