3 Ways To Improve The Energy Efficiency Of Your Business When Doing Roof Restorations

by Vanessa Lord

Eventually, the roof of your business is going to have to be repaired or replaced. When doing restorations to your roof, you may want to consider several options to improve the energy efficiency of your business. There are options like installing efficient roofing materials or even adding renewable energy systems to the roof of your business. Here are some of the ways you can improve the energy efficiency of your business when doing commercial roof restorations.

1. Reducing Energy Loss With The Installation Of Foam Roof Coatings

One of the areas of your business that causes energy loss is the roof. This is because commercial roofing often lacks sufficient insulation. To improve the insulation of your business and prevent energy loss, foam roof coating systems can be used. These are special some coatings that are applied to the top of the roof and then sealed with a special coating. These foam roof coating systems are durable and will help prevent leaks and save energy. 

2. Cool Roofing Membranes And That Reflect UV Radiation And Keep Your Business Cool

Another solution that you will want to consider for the roof of your business is roofing membranes. Today, commercial roofing membranes have improved, and light colors are available to make your new roof a cool roofing system. This material reflects UV radiation and keeps your business cool by reducing heat gain. The commercial roofing membranes can also be combined with other energy-efficient solutions such as spray foam insulation or roof coatings beneath the membrane. These systems also allow for the use of membranes with integrated solar cells to add renewable energy to your business.

3. Renewable Energy That Can Be Integrated Into Your Commercial Roofing System

Renewable energy can be another great improvement to consider when doing commercial roof restorations. There are several options to add renewable energy to the roof of your business, such as installing roofing membranes with solar cells embedded in them or adding solar panel arrays to the top of a flat roof. You may also want to consider other options when doing renovations to your roof, such as installing inconspicuous vertical wind turbines to help produce more electricity.

These are some of the ways you can improve the energy efficiency of your business when doing roof restoration work. If you are ready to replace the roof of your business, contact a commercial roofing contractor and talk to them about some of these energy-efficient solutions.
