Save Money by Restoring Your Existing Roof
For commercial property owners with flat or low-slope roofs in good condition, a roof restoration is an affordable alternative to a complete replacement. By coating your aging but still functional roof, you can add a decade or more to the life of your roof. More importantly, a roof restoration is a proactive step to avoid catastrophic failure or a full roof replacement.
What is a Commercial Restoration?
Restoring a commercial roof involves applying a durable, waterproof coating to your building’s existing roof. This coating stops leaks, prevents rusting, and can extend your roof’s lifespan for a decade or more.
7 Benefits of Roof Restoration
Since we are not performing a full tear-off, there is less labor and material costs for a restoration project. On average, restoring your roof can be 1/2 to 1/3 the price of a full replacement.
Restoration coatings can be applied faster than a full roof replacement, decreasing the amount of disruption on your operation.
3. Longer Life
Roof coatings added during the restoration process provide an additional 10-15 years to the life of your roof, giving you at least a decade before you need a costly replacement.
A roof coating system means no tear off and materials finding their way into the landfill.
5. Improved Appearance
A new roof coating provides a clean, fresh look to your commercial building, removing the rust, dirt, and signs of wear.
6. Tax Benefits
Roof restorations are considered maintenance, not a capital expenditure, and are deducted differently on your corporate taxes. You’ll want to speak to your accountant, but you should be able to pay less taxes with a restoration.
7. Energy Savings
The coatings we use for restoration projects is highly reflective, which protects the roof from UV damage and cools the roof down. This results in an energy-efficient roofing system that reduces your monthly energy costs.
A roof restoration coating extends the life of your flat or low-slope roof for a decade or more.

“In spring 2015 I was faced with the task of updating a 40-year-old steel roof. Moser Roofing suggested a silicone roof coating to refurbish the exiting steel roof. Their pricing was competitive, but the product knowledge and customer service was what sold the job. Josh took the time to explain the process and bring in the product supplier rep to answer all my questions prior to the installation. The crew was on time in completing the project, and there were no unexpected surprises. The new roof has performed great, and I would recommend Moser Roofing for all your roofing needs.”
