Cool Roof Coating Benefits
Cool roof coating applications are a growing industry in Spartanburg, Greenville and in other areas of the Upstate. Rising utility costs and a shift to more sustainable, green technologies has led many consumers to use cool roof coatings to lower their expenses.
Most cool roof coatings are Energy Star compliant, which means they have gone through extensive testing to get a certification from the federal government, rating these products as energy-saving materials. In most cases, these products employ a combination of insulation factors and solar reflection. By reflecting the sun’s energy away from the interior of the building, utility costs can be cut by as much as 50%.
Cool Roof Coating Application
Applying cool roof coatings is a lot like spray painting the roof of a building. The roofing company would prep the existing roof to make sure that there are no leaks or issues. After that, the coating is sprayed onto the surface of the roof and allowed to dry. Once applied, the new coating not only reflects solar energy, it also extends the life of the existing roof.
Cool Roof Coating Retrofit
Retrofitting a roof is a great option that can give your roof a lifespan of 40+ years with little maintenance required. Older roofs can actually cost more money to maintain over time than actually replace your roof. Retrofitting your roof offers a several benefits, including:
- Revives older structures in an affordable way, without having to rebuild
- Yields lower energy costs
- Provides an insulating layer, making it more temperature efficient
- Easy to maintain with a longer lifespan
- Adds attractiveness and value to a structure
Cool Roof Coating Tax Credit
Because of the Energy Star compliance of many cool roof coatings, there are several types of tax credits available to help with the cost of installation. These tax credits are offered by federal, state, and local governments to help cut energy use and improve the environmental impact of excessive energy consumption. If you are considering the use of cool roof coatings you should speak with a tax specialist to determine the credits available to you.
