You can cut down on costs and the use of materials by converting to a sustainable roof.
Instead of replacing your existing commercial roof, you can choose to renew it. You can salvage the best parts of your current roof and protect the integrity of your facility with the latest in cool roof system coatings.
Commercial cool roof systems are high-tech and remarkably resilient. You can apply sustainable roof options to nearly any existing roof covering. Furthermore, they outperform and outlast traditional commercial roofing.

Considering Alternative Materials for Sustainable Roofs
Many commercial structures have asphalt shingles or metal roof panels. These materials are durable and provide heat resistance. However, they’re not sustainable.
Another benefit of sustainable roofing is that it helps to reduce heat. For this reason, manufacturers also call them cool roofs.
Sustainable roofing can help you reduce the cooling needs of your facility. They can also help you to reduce the unwanted heat island effect.
Also, if you have a roof covered with traditional materials, this usually means that a contractor will have to uninstall the old roof completely before installing a new roof covering. This practice ensures a watertight seal.
A full roof tear-off before the installation of new roofing is also necessary with these kinds of materials to ensure longevity. Alternatively, you may want to consider using a different roofing material.
In today’s environment, selecting sustainable materials should take place at the top of your priorities. Sustainable roofing can help you meet ever-tightening budget constraints.
In practice, it would take a lot of work to find and source the right sustainable roofing materials. For example, a roofing material must last, eliminating the need for frequent replacements.
Also, you’d need to figure out the kind of sustainable roof system that will work best for your application. It’s easier to work with a roofing company that specializes in roofing installation.
Update Your Roof to an ASTEC Sustainable Roof
The ASTEC Re-Ply roofing system is a sustainable roofing solution. There are several benefits of this coating that can help you to overcome challenges typically faced by facilities managers. For instance, it can help you to overcome persistent roofing problems, without the need for a full roof replacement.
It can also help you to save a great deal of money on your next roofing install. It’s a sustainable way to restore your roof.
ASTEC Re-Ply is a premium, waterproof roof coating that can provide excellent protection for your facility. What’s more, you can save more than 50% of the cost of full roof removal and installation by choosing this roofing material.
Contractors can apply the ASTEC Re-Ply roofing system over most traditional roof coverings. Because of this, you won’t have to pay for a tear-off or construction disposal fees. Also, it takes less time to install an ASTEC Re-Ply roofing system, reducing disruptions to your business.
ASTEC Re-Ply roofing is an elastomeric coating. This coating provides benefits, such as:
• Abrasion resistance
• Corrosion resistance
• Heat resistance
• Increased strength
• UV protection
• Wind protection
Also, the system outperforms all standards for green roof credits and incentives. As a result, you’ll save on energy and your tax bill as well as on the installation when you choose the ASTEC Re-Ply system to convert to sustainable roofing.
ASTEC Roofing System Installation
Working with ASTEC Re-Ply roofing requires special training. However, the process is relatively straightforward.
The roofing contractor begins the installation by tightening or replacing loose fasteners on your roof. They’ll then remove any rust and power wash the roof surface.
Next, the contractor will use a special ASTEC rust control formula to encapsulate and neutralize corrosion. Now, the contractor will apply the ASTEC fluid membrane to all fasteners to create a watertight seal for your roof. They’ll also seal any seams and flashings.
Finally, the contractor will apply an ASTEC weatherproof membrane and a final reflective, cool roof coating. Now, you’re all set.
Your new roof will last for years. Also, ASTEC warranties the system for 10 to 15 years, depending on the installation.
An Alternative to Full Replacement
You may want to consider a roof rebuild, rather than a replacement. A roof restoration can help you maintain the appearance and integrity of your roof.
A roofing expert can suggest the best way to restore a damaged or expired roof. They’ll also provide you with a sustainable roof budget and a breakdown of the materials for the job.
A professional roof restoration can add years to the life of your roof. It costs less than a full replacement and lasts much longer than traditional commercial roofing.
