How to Beat the Heat with Cool Roof Coating

Posted on April 30th, 2019 by Applied Roofing Services

Roof coatings like spray polyurethane foam protect and extend the life of your roofing systems. Many people are not aware that their typical asphalt roofing system is heavily affected by the heat – the number one cause of roof failure. Once damaged, asphalt roofing systems lead to rising energy costs. Therefore, a cool roof coating is an excellent way to beat the heat because it provides a cool, energy efficient, and safe roof over your head.

How to Beat the Heat with Cool Roofs?

You can effectively beat the heat with cool roof coating systems for your commercial property.
A cool roof prevents the sun’s heat from entering the building by reflecting the sunlight, back to the sky. Cool roofs can significantly reduce the building’s cooling burden in several climatic zones. A few well-known benefits of cool roofs to the building owner and occupants include:

  1. Increased comfort during the hot summer months
  2. Decreased use of air conditioning, leading to energy savings
  3. Reduced roof maintenance costs due to improved roof life
  4. Protection from ultra-violet light and harmful chemicals
  5. Environment-friendly materials used

How a White Roof Coating Helps in Reducing Costs

Posted on September 26th, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

It’s important to choose roofing material that will perform the best in the long run. A white roof coating offers several benefits both in lowering energy costs and reducing the amount of maintenance needed to keep the roof in the best shape possible. It seals your roof from cracks and crevices that can lead to bigger problems over time.

Roof Coating

Here are the benefits of using a white roof coating that help to reduce costs:

Reflects Heat in the Summer
A white roof coating has reflective elements that bounce light and heat away from the surface. By reflecting heat away from the roof, it prevents temperatures from building up inside the dwelling reducing the workload for the air conditioner.

Keeps Temperature Steady in the Winter
Just like it prevents temperatures from rising on the inside, it also keeps the warm air from escaping in the winter. By sealing off leaks and small cracks that may let the warm air seep outside, it keeps temperatures steady without forcing the furnace to work over time.

Reduces Exposure to UV rays
A white roof coating deflects harmful UV rays and prevents the roofing material from degrading and becoming weak. UV rays can cause more damage to the roof. Applying a white roof coating to the existing roof reduces exposure to these rays helping your roof remain intact for years.

Minimizes Waste
Because of the way a white roof coating is designed, there is less waste when applying it to the roof. Less waste means less cost and a more precise fit. When the roofing materials are applied correctly, there is less chance of wear and tear in the future.

Decreases the Temperature of the Roof
Lighter colored roof coatings also decrease the temperature of the roof itself. When light roof coatings are used, the temperature of the roofing material stays low and reduces the damage that excessive amounts of heat can cause.

A white roof coating serves many purposes, but its ability to save money and resources make it one of the best deals available.
