Service Works "Up On Top" Newsletter
August 2014

Cool roofs can help many building owners save money while protecting the environment. This newsletter has been created to help you understand how cool roofs work, what kinds of cool roof options are available, and how to determine if cool roofing is appropriate for your building. If you are planning a new building or replacing or restoring an existing roof, cool roofs should be considered as an energy efficiency option. 

Cool roof products exist for virtually every kind of roof. Just as wearing light-colored clothing can help keep a person cool on a sunny day, cool roofs use solar-reflective surfaces to maintain lower roof temperatures. Traditional dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150ºF or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F cooler.

 

To see how a Highly Reflective Roof Coating can help save you money on your energy bills and prolong the useful life of your roof call your local branch of Service Works - Your Full Service Roofing Contractor. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Your Service Works Team

 

Cool Roofs 101
  

As global interest has increased in passive, energy-saving technologies, cool roofs have received a significant boost in awareness and research over the past year. In both commercial and residential applications, people are discovering the comfort, energy efficiency and climate change mitigation benefits of cool roofs. 


 

Several code bodies and green building programs are catching on as well, with more energy codes specifying cool roof standards. Cool roofs are moving into the spotlight and emerging technologies are pushing the entire industry to a sustainable and energy-efficient future. With heightened demand for this simple yet effective product, several tools have been created to help contractors, building owners and architects specify cool roofs.
