Cool Roofs with Elastomeric Coatings

Why ask for a "Cool Roof" with elastomeric coatings?

Over 90% of the roofs in the United States are dark colored. In full sun on an 85°F day, a black EPDM roof can reach temperatures near 190°F.

What is a “Cool Roof”?

A cool roof is a roofing system with high solar reflectivity (the ability of the surface to reflect UV and infrared wave lengths of the sun) and high emissivity (the ability of the surface to radiate any absorbed heat). Nearly any roof can be converted into a cool roof through the application of elastomeric coatings.

Typically, the long term financial benefits of a cool roof are also an advantage. Some of the benefits include:

  • Coatings are typically not considered a new roof and can be expensed
  • Life cycle cost of the roof is lowered because the existing roof is still functioning
  • Roof restoration with coatings is significantly less expensive than roof replacement
  • Opportunity for energy credits and rebates
  • Minimal disruption to occupants and operation inside the building
