SMART CHOICE INSULATION & ROOFING
During warmer summer months temperatures can reach 170 degrees F on a low slope black asphalt roof, and they can drop to -20 degrees F during the winter in northern and higher elevation regions. Much of the heat generated by absorbing the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation transfers to the building interior, and can have significant adverse effects on energy consumption. An SPF Roofing System can dramatically reduced this energy consumption - better for the environment and better for your wallet. Contact Smart Choice Insulation & Roofing, Inc. for more information.
Lighter colored roof coatings reflect the suns heat and UV rays and often lower the temperature of the roof by up to 100 degrees F.
The most common cool roof coatings used over Sprayed Polyurethane Foam (SPF) and other roof deck surfaces are light/white colored. The most common types are:
ENERGY STAR (DOE) qualified roof coating products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings and can reduce energy bills by up to 50%.
The Cool Roof Program defines certain standards for solar reflectance, 3-year aged maintenance of reflectivity, and emissivity in roof coating systems. Reflectivity is the percentage of the sun's heat a roof keeps off a building and emissivity is the percentage of heat a roof lets out of a building.
