THE STORY

A owner member contacted Buyers Access to help identify a solution to prolong the useful remaining roof life of one of their properties in advance of a potential property disposition. The customer was looking for a more cost and time effective solution to completing a traditional full reroof.

Reroofing costs and quotes for flat roofs can often exceed $25 per square foot. Utilizing a fluid applied roofing system on existing roofs, owners can extend the useful remaining life of a roof by 10+ years, omit tear-off waste and pollution, and create a more energy efficient building, potentially saving 50% + over the lifetime of a roof.

  • For a 20,000 square foot flat roof, an owner can expect savings of around $260,000 when using the fluid applied roofing system over a 50-year time frame.
