Energy Star / Cool Roof
We specialize in the installation and maintenance of Energy Star/Cool Roof rated single-ply systems. To be classified as such, the system must meet specific requirements for reflectivity and emissivity (in effect, heat transfer). They cool the building envelope, reducing the load on the HVAC system and ultimately lowering operating costs for the property. Compared to a conventional EPDM or built-up roof, an Energy Star/Cool Roof rated system alone (with no energy-generating enhancements, such as photovoltaic cells) will typically pay for itself over a 10-year period. In fact, we can run a life cycle analysis on any given building and, based upon the characteristics of the property, quantify for the owner what they can expect to see in savings over the life of the new roof by switching to an Energy Star/Cool Roof rated system.
