The roof is considered the most important component of any commercial or residential building because it serves the primary purpose of protecting against all elements. It is important that homeowners and businesses prepare for the onset of spring by taking all necessary precautions to avoid heat buildup.

An excellent way to reduce energy consumption is to use sun-reflective coatings. These coatings, which are typically light-colored and polymeric-blend for heat-absorption, lower the roof’s temperature. They also keep the interior of buildings cooler than areas where air conditioners work harder to cool. A lower cooling bill in the summer and spring will be possible if you use less AC.


Additionally, we offer protection that will prolong the life of your roof. These can be used to protect the roofing membrane, or as a scotch guard. The temperature of a roof with dark membranes can heat up in the summer heat, while a roof with solar reflective coatings can reduce the temperature by as much as 40%.

Solar reflective coatings are a specialty of our roofers. Give our roofing firm a call or visit us online to get more information.
