This is a great time of year for roof coating inspections. After the summer heat and monsoon rains, damage to the roof coating show up as cracks and peeling.
As a homeowner, you have a lot of responsibilities to take care of to make sure that your house is safe and sound for your family. Your home’s structure needs routine maintenance in order to survive the harsh desert weather of Tucson. You may not want to think about repairing or replacing your roof, so adding an Elastek roof coating can help you preserve your roof and extend its lifespan. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of Elastek roof coating.
One of the many features of Elastek roof coatings is that many of them are Energy Star qualified. They have undergone testing required by the Environmental Protection Agency for both short and long-term performance. Elastek roof coatings reflect the sun’s rays, and can lower the surface temperature of your roof by up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. That means that less heat is transferred into your home, which in turn means that your air conditioning doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you cool. Elastek roof coatings can help you lower your energy usage, and that translates into saving you money on your monthly utility bills.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that Americans spend roughly $40 billion each year on air conditioning. With Energy Star qualified roof coatings from Elastek, the need for air conditioning in buildings is reduced by as much as 15 percent. Since you’ll have less need for air conditioning with an Elastek roof coating, you can choose a model that is smaller, more efficient, and less costly.
Most homeowners dread the thought of having to have their roof replaced, and for good reason. It can be an expensive and elaborate job. With a good roof coating, you can give your roof the protection it needs from sun, rain, and temperature changes to help it last longer.
