Reduce Heat and Energy Consumption
Cool roofs have been recognized across the industry and by environmental organizations because of its ability to save on energy costs by reflecting the sunlight, thus creating a cooling effect on the inside of the building. Cool roofs reflect a high amount of sunlight – up to as much as 85 percent – and can reduce energy use usually expended in the cooling of the building’s interior because the reflecting off the sunlight means the roof doesn’t absorb as much heat, that would then dissipate into the building.
Advantages of a Cool Roof
The relative ease of installation and pervasive benefits make cool roofs a wise choice for most commercial structures. The advantages that a cool roof achieves include the following:
Highly reflective tiles, shingles, sheets coverings or paint can be used to create a cool roof on your commercial property, bringing benefits to the roof itself, as well as your entire structure.
Any savvy business owner appreciates the value of saving money wherever possible, so it’s easy to see why cool roofs are an attractive option for many commercial and industrial property owners.
