Commercial Cool Roofing

Cool roofs for commercial and industrial buildings are more commonly used and typically are Energy Star rated. These roofs often fall into one of three categories: roofs made from cool roofing membranes, roofs made of materials that have been coated with a solar reflective coating, or green planted roofs. Architects are looking to use sustainable and LEED approved products.

Membrane Cool Roofs

White vinyl single ply membrane roofs achieve some of the highest reflectance and emittance measurements of which roofing materials are capable. A roof made of thermoplastic white vinyl, for example, can reflect 80 percent or more of the sun's rays and emit at least 70% of the solar radiation that the building absorbs.

Coated Cool Roofs

An existing (or new) roof can be made reflective by applying a solar reflective coating to its surface. This is typically considered a maintenance roof coating and 100% tax deductible the first year. Cool Roof coatings can be restored and could be the last roof installed on your building if properly maintained and resurfaced per the manufacturer specifications.

Green Cool Roofs

Green roofs are a plant base roof system that provides a thermal mass layer which helps reducing the flow of heat into a building. Green roofs are typically expensive and require high maintenance. Typically installed in plant trays and require a separator between the plants and the waterproofing membrane.
