There are a significant number of businesses in the US that own multiple industrial buildings. Large box stores own thousands of them. It’s where they store their products while they’re waiting to learn where they need to be shipped. Of course, companies involved in the production of oil also own lots of them. They refine the oil in some, hold oil in others, and use still others to store or work on equipment. Even agricultural businesses own hundreds of industrial buildings. After all, they need somewhere to store all of their grain and agricultural commodities.
The point here is that a lot of businesses own a large number of industrial buildings, but not all of those businesses are doing everything in their power to ensure that those buildings will last as long as possible. A lot of businesses just throw them up as fast as they can, and when they start to have issues, they’ll tear them down and build new ones. This isn’t efficient in terms of time nor cost. It takes a great deal more time to tear down a structure and build a new one than it does to repair an existing structure, and it certainly costs more money. That’s why more businesses should do what they can to protect these buildings from damage and keep them standing as long as possible. One way to do that is to apply industrial roof coating to all of the buildings. Here are the three reasons why this is such an important thing for all industrial building owners to do.
1. Protects Against Damage. Obviously, the roof tends to be the first part of an industrial building to fail. It takes on Mother Nature every single day of the year, and eventually Mother Nature wins. However, if every single industrial building in the country had a thick coating on the roof, that roof would last a lot longer. Industrial roof coating covers the roof of a building, keeping moisture out, protecting the roof against extreme temperature swings, and even protecting the roof from the sun’s harmful rays. Eventually the coating will wear out and need to be replaced, but it’s going to at least double the lifetime of the average roof.
2. It’s Affordable. Given the benefits of industrial roof coating, you might be thinking, “Well, that sounds expensive.” In reality, it’s not. When you compare the cost of having an industrial roof services company apply a layer of coating on the roof against what it costs to repair or replace a roof, it’s not even close. Thus, a small investment up front will save you a great deal of money down the road.
3. It’s Quick and Easy. At the end of the day, it takes a company like METALGUARD Metal Building Contractors less than an afternoon to apply a layer of industrial roof coating on a structure. When you look at all of the benefits that roof coating will provide and then see how long it’s actually going to take to put it on, it’s a complete no-brainer. Every business should be doing this with every single industrial building they own.
