With warmer weather approaching, now is the time to have your commercial roof inspected and to consider applying a white silicone or acrylic coating to create a cool roof. Not only will this save you money on utility bills, it will extend the life span of your roof.
White roof coatings have many benefits. For one, a cool roof absorbs less of the sunrays and works as a reflective surface. Over sixty percent of the sun’s rays are reflected back into the atmosphere.
What is a Cool Roof?
A cool roof typically denotes a roofing product that has a high solar reflectance, which has the ability to reflect infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of the sun. A cool roof can lower cooling costs of a building as much as twenty percent.
Tropical locations, such as Santorini, stand out with the entire coastal view of white roofs. Groupings of white roofs lessen the burden on the electrical grid and keep their region cooler than if they used traditional black or tar roofs.
Because reflective roofs stay cooler in the sun, they lessen the amount of heat flow to the region and the atmosphere.
When the sun beats down on a black membrane or gravel roof, the heat absorption taxes your roofing system and shortens its lifespan. So if you are considering upgrading your commercial roof to a cool roofing system, check out the many benefits below.
