The Benefits of Restoring Your Commercial Metal Roof

Are you considering restoring your commercial roofing this year? Well, now is the time to give your roof that second life. 

Putting money towards a roof restoration will be more beneficial for commercial property owners and facility managers than replacing the roof altogether. In fact, in the long-run, you will end up saving time and money with a restoration. You can keep the functionality of your roof without having to fully replace the system. 

The benefits of a commercial roof restoration include, but are not limited to, increasing longevity, preventing rust, and making your roof more energy efficient. 


Over time, our roofs take a beating – rain, snow, sleet, and whatever the wind sweeps up and throws in our direction. By completing a roof restoration, your roof’s lifespan will be increased and your building will have a sturdy roof that can withstand those nasty elements that nature will throw at you. 

Extending the life of your commercial roof will also restore confidence in your structure. You will not have to worry about leaks or holes for years to come. 

Prevents Rust

The challenge we’ve all been facing for years: rust. No one likes the look of rust and it can cause structural issues, weakening the integrity of the roof. By waterproofing a commercial metal roof, a restoration could prevent rust. Not only would a restoration prevent rust, but it will also prevent leaks. 

Energy Efficient

By using a roof coating or sealant, you can lower your energy bills and consumption because the sealant keeps the interior of your building at a constant temperature instead of fluctuating. Also, you can benefit your entire community too! By deflecting UV rays back into the atmosphere, a reflective roof coating keeps cooler, which will help cool the community. 

Metal Restoration vs. Membrane Restoration

If you’re not sure which restoration service to get, no worries! We’re going to help you distinguish between the two. 

A roof’s membrane is used to create a watertight covering to protect the interior of a building. Membrane roofs are most commonly made from synthetic rubber, thermoplastic (PVC or similar material), or modified bitumen. So, if your roof’s protective membrane is looking a little worse for wear, consider a membrane restoration system. At WaterTite Commercial Roofing, we can restore EPDM, TPO, and PVC roofs, reinforcing the seams on your old membrane and apply a white reflective coating to the entire surface. The reflective coating will give you those energy efficient benefits without having to replace the entire roof. 

A metal roof would require a metal restoration system. By restoring your metal roof, you can stop any future leaks and stop rust in its tracks. This option will also provide you the energy efficient benefits as well. With an 85% reflective coating, we can help you and your company save money on HVAC bills.
