2011: Over 35 Years of Service to the Low Sloped (or Flat) Roofing Industry
Since the "Cool Roof" bill signed into law by Mayor Nutter in 2010, the idea of making the black roofs of Philadelphia "Cool Roofs" has really taken hold. The typical black flat roof in Philadelphia and anywhere for that matter, absorbs most of the heat radiation from the sun. The roofing systems not only degrade and dry out faster, but the buildings under these flat roofs become burdensome to cool with air conditioning. With electric costs growing, it only makes sense to apply "Cool Roof" systems. The best part of idea is that applying a "Cool Roof" system is inexpensive as long as the substrate is viable.
The White Elastomeric Cool Roof systems are best for heat reflection on flat roofs. The plan for Philadelphia is to reduce energy consumption (for the city) by 10% by retrofitting 15% of the city's roofs by 2015. Those numbers are staggering! The city of Philadelphia plans to become the greenest city in America by making the rooftops white.
The life extension of the roof life is a real plus as keeping up on the "Cool Roof" coating can easily double a roof's life. Call us today for a free evaluation and estimate.
