The Cool Roof System is an environmentally safe roofing and waterproofing system that is especially formulated to maintain and control temperature throughout buildings & homes by permanently waterproofing the roofing structure.
The Cool Roof System is:
Advantages & Benefits:
The sustainable coating material and waterproofing system is one of the highest quality roofing materials. It is recognized by Factory Mutual as a Class One roofing system as both a stand-alone roof system and as a recover system over a variety of substrates. It is made of advanced materials to form a flexible, U. V. resistant elastomeric compound and is fully reinforced with a tough non-woven polyester mesh that has been designed for roofing and flashing applications of all types.
The unique coating compound that is used in these systems has been tested and greatly exceeds the requirements of the Department of Energy for a Cool Roof System. Over the past decade, the Department of Energy has conducted extensive research on the advantages of cool roof systems and concluded that by using a cool roof system, you can:
• Reduce Cooling Energy Costs by 20% to 70%
• Extend the life of the existing roof
• Reduce Air Pollution
• Reduce the need for Re-roofing
This Acrylic base chemical compound is effective because:
• High Albedo properties reflects or scatters over 78% of the amount of sunlight energy that is radiated on it. The DOE considers that anything over 50% meets the highest industry standard.
• Emissivity radiates over 90% of its stored heat energy away from itself – equally important for having a cool roof
Cool Roof Systems can save you money on your energy bills and can extend the life of your roof. For instance, a typical hot roof in the summertime can reach temperatures that exceed 180 Degrees Fahrenheit! But if you have a Cool Roof System, your energy bills will decrease because you will need to use your cooling systems much less (air conditioning).
The actual temperature of the roof at the time of inspection was 178 Degrees F. The installation of the Cool Roof System Coating reduced the temperature of the roof surface to 85 Degrees cooler!
