Benefits of a Full Roof Restoration Gold Coast :
Increased Aesthetic Appeal
When you look at a home or a commercial building, you notice the appearance of a roof. Fading, discolouration, dirt and mould can all detract from the look of a property and send a message that the structure is not properly cared for. A roof restoration is a simple way to restore beauty to the exterior of any property. Following a roof restoration, the colour of a roof is brighter and more lustrous, and the effects can make a home or business look fresh and new.
Water damage is one of the biggest threats to the integrity of roofs. When water pools on the surface of the roof, it can cause corrosion to metal and promote rot and weathering for other types of materials. If water is able to seep past the exterior of the roof, it can lead to the growth of toxic mould and mildew inside of structures and water damage that can cost thousands to repair. Top quality roof restoration products leave behind a water-resistant coating that diminishes the risk of water damage and the costs with which it is associated.
Protection from Mould, Mildew and Algae
In wet climates, mould, mildew and algae can all grow on the hard surfaces of roofs. These substances can detract from the appearance of roofs and compromise their integrity. Roof restoration includes pressure washing that helps to remove microbes from roofing. The sealants and restoration products that are applied to the roof during a service are mould-resistant and help to control the growth of microbes for years to come.
Higher Home Values
Studies have shown that the quality and integrity of a roof contributes to 10 to 15 per cent of its total value. Having a roof restoration performed can help to keep a roof in good repair and positively impact the value of a property. In addition, the aesthetic benefits of roof restoration make a home more visually appealing and can increase its perceived value with potential buyers.
9 More Good Reasons for a Full Roof Restoration Gold Coast :
- Cost savings : Let’s face it—roof replacement is a major investment. The cost of labor and materials are substantial. While sometimes replacement is the best decision to make for long-term advantages, restoration – which requires less labor and materials – costs less than half of a total roof replacement. For example, depending on the roofing system selected, replacement costs between $18 and $22 per square feet, whereas restoration requires costs about $6 to $9 per square foot.
- Longer depreciation period : The federal government expects you to depreciate your roof over 39 years, so it is advantageous for you to extend the life of your roof, as long as you’re not looking at numerous additional repairs in the near future.
- Cool factor : “Cool roof” solutions, such as those available from Dulux, lower the temperature of your existing roof. Since some coatings are highly reflective, they can greatly increase solar reflectivity, which can significantly reduce interior coating costs. You can achieve significant savings on your HVAC costs.
- Tax benefits : Restorations are financed through maintenance rather than capital budgets, which is a strong tax advantage. As a maintenance expense, a roof restoration means you can immediately expense your costs. Further, depending on where you live, there could be more tax advantages in the form of tax credits and rebates available for energy-efficient improvements, such as ENERGY STAR® qualification and LEED point contribution.
- Multiple options : There are numerous, cost-effective restoration options available depending on your type of roofing system.
- Safety : With some roofing systems, a restoration can upgrade your roof to a Class A fire rating. You’ll not only enhance the safety of your building, you may also be able to lower your cost of insurance.
- Heat efficiency : Since some coatings are highly reflective, they can greatly increase solar reflectivity, which can significantly reduce interior coating costs.
- Less intrusive : Replacement can be noisy and disruptive. Restoration is typically less intrusive to the people working in your commercial building. An added bonus: Restoration is faster and cleaner.
- Additional warranty : Many restoration systems are warranted through the manufacturer for up to 10 years. Be sure to find out how many years your restoration would be covered.
