|Description||Did you know that roof restoration can cost up to 50 % less than roof replacement? Learn about the process and benefits of roof restoration in this video from the Cooperative Contracts Team of Tremco Roofing & Building Maintenance. The video tells the story of the environmental factors that wear on roofs, and how with today’s advanced restoration technologies, old and failing roofs can often be saved if they meet certain construction and condition criteria. The application of Tremco’s AlphaGuard™ system is illustrated, and real project scenarios are examined – with significant cost saving examples.|
[MUSIC PLAYING] SALESPERSON: Imagine a roof that lasts forever, one that can be restored over and over again for the life of your building, and cost as much as 50% less than replacement. Unfortunately, a roof doesn't live in a bubble. It shelters the building from the elements and every season presents its own challenges. On rainy days, water collects in low spots and creates ponding. On sunny days, the water evaporates and leaves behind debris that degrades the roof membrane. The hot Sun also causes roof layers to expand creating wear on the entire system. When the Sun sets, the roof contracts and the wear cycle repeats. In the fall, leaves and debris can clog drains, which causes ponding. Then as temperatures drop during winter months, rooftop water freezes and cracks get worse, eventually causing leaks. And let's not forget snow, which accumulates to further stress the entire structure. And so it goes, year after year. By year 10, most EPDM roofs show serious wear. Before you know it, rooftop components have gone from bad to worse. By year 14, most are reaching the end of their service life. But chances are, this roof can be saved with a cool roof restoration by Tremco Roofing. Once qualified with advanced diagnostics, AlphaGuard Bio by Tremco Roofing may be the best solution, particularly if a virtually odorless system is needed. At Tremco, we always start with a safety plan to ensure the roof meets all regulatory requirements. Next, damaged insulation and membrane sheets are replaced as necessary, followed by flashings and curb repairs. Then, we'll clean the old roof with our environmentally friendly RoofTec system, before applying the AlphaGuard primer, AlphaGuard Bio base coat, and reinforcement. Later that day or the next, the AlphaGuard Bio topcoat is applied and the job is done. With an AlphaGuard Bio roof restoration, the benefits add up quickly. Let's see how. Restoration can be 50% less expensive than a typical roof replacement, because in addition to material savings, both labor and landfill costs are reduced. To better understand the financial benefits of restoration versus replacement, let's review our building scenario, a two story school with 60,000 square feet of roofing located in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. The cost of total roof replacement on our building, whether a black EPDM with an r value of 25, or a white roof TPO roof is $900,000. The total cost of an AlphaGuard Bio installation is just $600,000 for a capital savings of $300,000. And energy consumption, when compared to black EPDM, in year one, the white AlphaGuard Bio reduces energy costs by almost $6,620, and by $577 when compared to a white TPO. When the first year of installation and energy savings are combined, AlphaGuard Bio delivers a savings of nearly $360,620 compared to EPDM, and $300,577 when compared to a white TPO. With an expected lifecycle of 20 years, and the ability to repeatedly restore an AlphaGuard Bio roof, the savings keep adding up. At year 21, the installation and energy savings of a second AlphaGuard Bio compared to a second EPDM is $2,454,306, a $2,448,263 when compared to a second TPO replacement. At year 40, AlphaGuard Bio saves $3,012,506 compared to the EPDM replacement, and $2,770,763 compared to a TPO. So what about net present value? Over a 40 year period, AlphaGuard Bio wins again with a net present value of $458,250 compared to negative $1,949,200 for EPDM and $354,547 for TPO. It's true, through rain or shine, sleet and snow, a roof restored by Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance really can live for the life of your building and provide a better return on your investment.
