Elastomeric Roof Coating can add 10 or more years to your metal roof
Replacing a metal roof on any commercial or even a small personal tool shed can be extremely expensive and time consuming. However there is an option that can save your business or personal bank account a ton of money.
Have you ever considered keeping that old leaking metal roof and re-finishing it? If it’s not showing signs of advanced rust to the point that it’s integrity is compromised, then re-finishing it with Elastomeric Roof Coating may be your best option by far.
This will ad an additional 10 – 15 years life, and sometimes at the end of that time – if you applied it correctly, you can even re-finish again to gain another 8 – 10 years.
I’ve seen one roofing company in Shreveport La that specializes in this system save a lot of business owners tons of money. It’s a great thing to see a company that’s not only concerned about their bottom line but also wants to provide a service that is best for their customer.

You have to use a heavy duty industrial sprayer to apply this type roof coating. They aren’t cheap but the money that can be made and saved in the long run will more than pay for the equipment!
I highly recommend considering this option before you start pulling screws and metal roof panels to replace your metal commercial roof. After all, it can give you an extra 10+ years before you’ll have to think about coming out of pocket for that really big hit.
In order to be sure that you are able to get the most out of your heavy equipment use, you will need to learn some safety measures. These safety measures will help you out exponentially, whether you own an entire fleet of front end loaders, or are simply renting a piece of equipment for a temporary project. No matter the issue, the following safety steps will help you out greatly. Safety is important with any type of construction when using heavy equipment, but especially when using it to build retaining walls.
One of the first steps that you should keep in mind when using your heavy equipment to build a retention wall is to make sure that you are providing great drainage and compaction for the wall. The reason for this is that you increase the odds of having an equipment mishap if your walls are not solid and sturdy. You need to use the equipment to your advantage by digging drainage ditches that will help your wall stand up to any pressure. When doing this, you can rest assured that your wall will be built solidly and soundly. A high quality, soundly built wall will last a lifetime and also assist in getting referrals.
Another tip to keep in mind is to make sure that all of your employees are always using their safety equipment when operating heavy machinery. This means strapping on a hard hat and using goggles, in addition to having thick rubber shoes on your feet. When your crew is safe, you can make sure that your entire project is going well and without any safety hazards. A crew that is well aware of their safety and their surroundings will also be better stewards of the equipment that they are using. Because of this, you should always make sure that all safety standards are enforced which will help you take your business to the next level.
Another great tip to keep in mind when it comes to using your equipment when building a retaining wall is that you need the best possible professionals to manage equipment. By having sub par contractors use the equipment, you will get sub par performance out of the machines. However, if you put the best and brightest to work on the machinery, you can guarantee that your retaining wall be built to the best of your ability and that it will have excellent drainage and compaction systems in place. This will make your dollar go much further with any project and will assure you are doing every job to the highest standards.
Follow these tips and use them as you set out to build the strongest and best retaining wall possible.
