Low-sloping or flat roofs are by nature at greater risk of developing leaks than are pitched roofs that promote faster water runoff. Fortunately, business owners now have more options for repairing and restoring low-sloping and flat roofs. These options boost energy efficiency and are also effective and affordable.

However, when any of these roofing systems leak, business owners can now opt to repair and restore them with newer applied membrane or spray-on materials. In addition to having longer lifespans, these newer roofing solutions also reflect sunlight thereby increasing the building’s overall energy efficiency. Some of these roofing solutions can also be used on new construction.Continue reading “Make the Right Choices for Commercial Roofing Restoration”
