White roofs reflect UV Rays, which lessen heat absorption. There are many money saving advantages of White Roof Coatings. Cool roof coatings, best described as an extremely thick paint, protect your roof from leaking and chemical damage. They really are a cost effective way to handle any commercial roof restoration.
1) LOWERS ENERGY BILLS
A ‘cool’ roof has a high thermal emittance, known as TE properties. It also has a solar reflectance. Both of which can lower cooling costs by up to twenty percent. White roof coatings can have a big effect on everyone’s utility bills if implemented universally in a neighborhood.
Believe it, or not, a cluster of cool roofs or white roof coatings in an urban area can greatly reduce local air temperatures. Often referred to as ‘urban heat island effect’. When the ambient temperature reaches 100˚F, a black roof can heat up to 180˚F and a gravel roof will go up to 145˚F. Adversely, a white roof will reach only 90˚F, a significant difference!
2) AVOIDS A COMPLETE TEAR OFF
The beauty of white roof coatings is that they are applied to your current roofing system, as they are considered maintenance and not a layer. Building codes often allow for only two roofing layers, so this is a big work around.
This will save you from having to tear off and haul away the old roof. Imagine the disposal costs alone.
3) SAVES YOU TIME
Time is money and because white roof applications avoid the need to rip off the current roof and replace, there is less labor involve. Obvious less labor translates into lower cost.
4) MINIMIZES DISRUPTION OF BUSINESS
Because there is no need to rip off your old roof and replace, a white roof coating is less disruptive. There is very little noise involved and no need to close or cordon off parts of your building.
5) INCREASES THE LIFESPAN OF A ROOF
Perhaps the most beneficial is the reduced cooling cost and prolonging the lifespan of the roof. The beauty of Restore It Commercial Roof Coatings is that there is no need to rip off the current roof. We can apply the reflective coating to the existing structure.
Both our acrylic and silicone applications are flexible and durable, sealing the entire surface, including any cracks or crevices.
