29 White Roofs for a Greener Tomorrow. The cost effective cool roofing solutions.
Elastomeric roof coatings have been gaining popularity as a cool roof solution due to their efficient solar reflectance, high thermal emmitance, and low relative cost to install. Tradi- tional uncoated roofs attract and absorb the majority of the sun’s emmited UV rays creating an Urban Heat Island effect, a term describing built up areas that are hotter than nearby rural areas, resulting in higher energy bills.
Whether you’re homeowner or own a commercial/industrial building, restoring your cur- rent roof is the optimtal choice if you’re looking to significantly reduce your building’s total energy consumption costs. To learn more about the roofing solutions we can provide check out our project profiles on pages 17-23 and the product information on page 25.
With the advancement of technology and an evergrowing population, energy demand and consumption continues to rapidly grow; as a result, roughly 117 million metric tons of carbon dioxide are released into the air each year from air conditioners alone. As temperatures increase each year, central cooling will need more resources for the same output. California started to address this problem through their Title 24, Part 6 Building Energy Efficiency Standards requiring installation of “Cool Roofs”, a roof made up of materials that reflect the sun’s to mitigate the build - ing’s heat retention, on every residential and non-residential building in specific climate zones. Roofers nationwide have followed this trend through white roof system installations using TPO, PVC, and coatings such as acrylic or silicone. These solutions don’t require a property owner to replace their current roof- ing system, saving them up to 70% on labor and material costs.
