Roof Painting And It’s Benefits
Roof painting will not only change the look of your home or business, but will also have additional benefits. The roof is a very important part of the home, although it is often times neglected. When someone is thinking about having the exterior of their home or business painted, they almost always forget about the roof. Although it will certainly enhance the beauty of your home, roof painting is not only done for aesthetic purposes. There are other benefits that can also be gained from painting the roof. Roof paint is a reflective coating which will help diminish the harmful effects of UV rays and heat, ensuring better longevity of the roof.
Besides increasing the roof life, these reflective coatings can also lower the heat absorption of the home. It was reported that painting a roof white can significantly reduce the energy consumption of a home or business. Roofers estimated that a white roof coating can reflect up to 90% of sun rays and lower the surface temperature of the roof. Here in south Florida this can have quite an effect on your electric bill, especially during the summer months when temperatures are in the 90’s.
Most roof coatings are also fading and mildew resistant. Mildew is not only aesthetically unpleasant but can also cause serious damage to a roof if left untreated. Any product that can help prevent the growth of mildew is definitely beneficial to a roof’s longevity. Depending on the sheen that is chosen for the coating, it will also help repel dirt and prevent it from sticking to the roof (we all know how unsightly a dirty roof can be.)
