Here’s Why Investing in Your Roof’s Efficiency is Worthwhile

9th May 2024

The roof contracting industry generates an estimated $46 billion of revenue in the U.S. annually. And even though properly installed commercial roofing can last two decades or longer, it’s not always easy to keep them efficient and well-protected from the elements. There are a wide variety of waterproof products and other types of reinforcements that can preserve your roof’s structural integrity, but rubberized roofing paint is among the most economical. Here are just a few worthwhile reasons to invest in your roof’s efficiency with rubberized roofing paint.

Increases Durability

The average roof will collect over 600 gallons of water with just one inch of rainfall. With that in mind, why wouldn’t you want to increase the durability of your roof? Some reinforcement methods require a hefty upfront investment, but commercial waterproofing products like rubberized roofing paints are the perfect way to find the ideal balance between durability and affordability. Rain, sleet, and snow will no longer pose a threat to your roof’s structural integrity.

Improves Sustainability

Rubber roofing paints and solutions are specifically formulated to reduce the amount of the sun’s rays that penetrate the roof and heats up your property. When applied properly, this solution should be considered a long-term investment that can help to cut cooling costs day in and day out. You’ll likely notice an instant improvement in your property’s HVAC efficiency upon proper application.

Affordable Pricing

As mentioned, these rubberized paints are some of the most affordable options on the market when it comes to improving sustainability and durability. EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings; its two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas. This makes them very economically efficient to produce. Plus, over the past thirty 30 years, EPDM Rubber Roofing Membranes have stood the test of time with virtually no change in the EPDM formulation, which means your investment will pay off for years to come.

Ultimately, understanding the benefits of commercial waterproofing products can help you make the most informed decision for your waterproofing needs. For more information about waterproof paint for bathrooms, contact Ames Research Laboratories Inc.
