When discussing roofing options with building owners, roofing contractors have a number of viable alternatives available, from ripping off and reroofing to applying a coating maintenance system. In recent years, the shift has been made to finding sustainable options for roofing that not only repair, seal and lengthen the service life of roofs but also offer energy savings to building owners. Sustainability, energy conservation, environmental responsibility, waste management and the maximized and effective use of natural resources all come into play, and with all the benefits and proven history of coatings systems, it is no wonder property managers and building owners are turning to Karnak Corporation for these options.
