Why should I use a reflective roof coating?

Reflective roof coatings provide cool roof benefits to hot, dark colored roofs. A white coating can lower roof surface temperature and save cooling costs.

Reflective Roof Coatings

Save Energy, Save Money and the Environment

Reflective roof coatings contain special pigments that reflect heat. Less heat on the roof means less heat gain inside the building.

Infrared photo clearly shows a significant heat reduction on upper roof with reflective roof coatings.
96°F Heat Reduction

The temperature of dark uncoated area of this modified bitumen roof was a blistering 175°F. The newly coated section above was only 79°F.

Roof top air-conditioners don't have to work as hard since the air flowing through the condenser coils are also much cooler.

Benefits

  • Improve indoor comfort for non-airconditioned spaces.
  • Reduce electricity costs by decreasing air conditioning needs.
  • Cooler surface temperature makes the roof system last longer.
