The difference between a high-quality industrial roof painting and a paint job that is low-quality or rendered ineffective by age can be thousands of dollars in repairs. A coat of paint acts as a layer of defense against environmental damage and traditional wear-and-tear. An expertly-applied coat of first-rate paint can add years to a roof’s life, saving the building owner thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs. Industry Painting Limited provides superior steel roof painting services to commercial and industrial buildings in Toronto and southern Ontario.
Specific Benefits of High-Quality Coatings on Industrial Roofs
Repairing and replacing industrial roofs can cost thousands of dollars, which can be a significant drain when repairs are frequent. A high-quality industrial roof coating protects the roof from water damage, corrosion, and ultraviolet rays, adding up to five years to the roof’s lifespan. Expertly-performed industrial roof painting can also lower cooling costs by reflecting solar radiation. Roofs treated with superior paint also act as an additional layer of protection from costly water leaks. Industrial roof paintings can also prevent the accumulation of mold and mildew by using paint that creates a hostile environment for harmful microorganisms. And a high-quality industrial roof painting can prevent fading and other wear-and-tear effects that distract from the building’s aesthetic value.
Factors to Consider Regarding Industrial Roof Painting Jobs
We cannot understate the importance of ensuring the compatibility of the paint and the roof or ceiling to be painted. One example is the amount of zinc with which the roof is made; the chemicals in some paints react negatively to zinc, leading to gradual and catastrophic damage to the roof. The environment around and inside the building is important as well; some methods and types of paint are not suitable for areas of high humidity. Attempting to save money by acquiring cheap paint or unskilled labor can cost more money in the long run, as low-quality paints or an improperly-applied coat will not adequately protect the roof. Industrial ceiling painting should only be performed during weekends or other normally-scheduled shutdowns. A standard paint treatment of an industrial ceiling or roof should not impact the company’s operations; skilled, efficient paint contractors can safely complete a superior ceiling coating without impacting or distracting from the company’s operations. And there are multiple types of paint application, each with their own advantages, drawbacks, and requirements regarding equipment and skills.
