What is a COOL ROOF?

Simply put, a Cool Roof is a light-colored commercial roofing system that reflects the sun’s heat (80-90% reflective) and damaging rays and readily emits any absorbed solar heat, thereby lowering the roof and building temperature and protecting the roof from sunlight degradation. The potential impact of installing a Cool Roofing System is impressive–-studies show reduced cooling energy demand in buildings by up to 40%. A Cool Roof commercial roofing system saves money, last longer with lower maintenance costs, help reduce power plant emissions, improve air quality, and cuts landfill waste.
