Yes These Roofing Materials Actually Prevent Energy Waste

roofing equipmentBusiness owners looking for strategies to slash their energy costs would be wise to take a good look at the top of their buildings.

Over the last few years, a number of studies performed by major companies and government agencies have cited issues related to the roof — specifically including roofing surfaces that are inadequate, outdated or in need of repair — as the primary culprit responsible for considerable wasted energy. In fact, many of these studies estimated that the roof was to blame for at least 20 percent of heat loss and wasted energy.

What do these studies teach us? First, it translates to higher utility bills. And because no property owner wants to pay more on utility bills than necessary, many of today’s companies are likely interested in learning about new ways to reduce (or even eliminate) energy loss and reduce their utility bills.

SPF = Less Energy Waste

Fortunately, there are some quick and extremely effective ways to improve the roof on a commercial building that can achieve the ultimate goal of reducing energy loss.

One of the best options is to reinforce the roof with Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) roofing materials. This strategy can make a dramatic improvement in the energy efficiency of a building by creating a solid membrane and strong surface that prevents air and moisture from traveling in and out of the structure. The result: less energy waste.

Companies and the SPF contractors that serve them can find a wide range of commercial roofing materials and roofing equipment at Intech Equipment & Supply.
