REFLECTIVE ROOF COATINGS
|How does a reflective roof coating make a roof
Nearly any roof can be converted into a “cool” roof by applying a white reflective roof
coating. This can be achieved at any time during the life of the existing roof. These coatings
can be applied to new and existing dark-colored roofs. A reflective roof is defined as one that
has properties of at least 75% reflectivity and 65% emissivity. It reflects solar energy back
into space so the roof surface remains cooler. A “black” roof becomes incredibly hot in the
heat of summer, with this solar energy getting absorbed into the building. The installation of a
reflective coating not only reduces the surface temperature and heat transfer into the
structure, it also acts as the first line of defense against water penetration.
|Roof Coatings & Re-Coatings
The very last layer of almost every type of roofing material (foam, metal, asphalt, modified
bitumen, shake, tile, etc.) is a coating substance. These coatings can be composed of a
wide variety of materials including acrylic, aluminum, rubberized aluminum, polyurethane,
asphalt, polymers, cement, granules, rock — the list goes on and on. These coatings tend
to be extremely durable and elastomeric. Elastomeric simply means that the material is
very elastic (resembling rubber) and resumes its original shape after an impact. In short, it
rebounds from hailstones, branches or debris falling on the roof

|Badly Rusted and Leaking Metal Roofing?
WE CAN FIX IT!
|When it comes to saving your old rusted metal roof, our Total
Protection System gives you the complete package. Once
complete your roof will be restored to better than original
condition and will last for years to come.
A single, thin coat of our spray applied to the underside of your roof
deck will block up to 84% of the sun's radiant heat from entering your
home through the attic.
And in winter, the same barrier will reflect back up to 84% of the heat
that tries to escape from your home through the attic. Yet unlike foil
substrates, our radiant barrier spray can be applied in a matter of
hours instead of days. It goes on evenly, with no gaps or holes. And
because it is sprayed on, it can easily be applied to existing roofs.
