Roof systems are applied with coatings for a reason. It is because they are cost-effective solution that extends the life of the roofing system. There are also other benefits from applying these coatings.
For instance, coatings allow a surface to be highly reflective. This is proven beneficial in lowering the temperature of the roof’s surface. With a lowered surface temperature, companies are able to reduce their cooling costs. Eventually, this leads to reduced overall expenditures.
Introducing the Cool Roof Coatings
Cool roof coatings are often found in their white color or special reflective pigments wherein the sunlight easily reflects. Being white roof coating, it is only expected that it comes with greater benefits that the non-cool roof type. Among these benefits is that it lets you save money in numerous ways such as in downsizing the HVAC equipment and extending the lives of the roof.
Roof Coating (White)
A white-colored roof coating is a reflective, elastomeric thermal barrier that waterproofs and protects the surface where it is applied. One characteristic that this roof coating has is a thick consistency. Properly applied white coating expands and contracts. Even in the most extremes of cycles, it still won’t crack, peel, chip, lift or bubble.
