Time, weather events and daily exposure to UV rays and temperature fluctuations definitely impact roof systems. Among other things, deterioration shows up as cracks and splits in the membrane, laps peeling back and fasteners backing out. Tearing off a roof is an expensive, labour intensive, time-consuming, disruptive process, but you may have a much better option.
If your roof is not suffering from systemic problems and structural deterioration to the extent that a roof replacement is necessary, roof restoration is an alternative that will save you a great deal of time, money and disruption while provide a lasting repair.
The Black Jack Eterna-Kote Silicone roof restoration system delivers seamless protection that defends against UV, temperature extremes, ponding water and other major threats, while offering substantial savings over tear-offs.
Reflective or “cool roof” coatings, such as Eterna-Kote, have the added benefit of reflecting heat and UV rays away from your building and lowering the roof surface temperature, reducing thermal shock. High Reflectance can translate into cooler interior temperatures, decreasing the stress on your air-conditioning system and providing energy savings.
An Eterna-Kote restoration will cost between a tenth to a sixth of a roof replacement with savings in materials, labour, construction waste disposal and more.
Eterna-Kote products carry a lifetime warranty and have been proven over decades in extreme climates from the desert in Chile (with UV exposure greater than in New Zealand) to frigid geographies in Alaska.
Finally, a roof replacement is classified as a capital expenditure and is thus not tax-deductible. Whereas a roof repair, such as with Eterna-Kote, is treated as a tax-deductible expense.
