Your roof plays a big role in the energy efficiency of your building. As the sun beats down on your commercial roofing system, the materials on your roof absorb the heat and transfer it to the interior of the building, making your air conditioning systems work much harder to cool the building to a comfortable temperature. If you want to prevent this from happening, call McRoof at (877) 492-9383 and inquire about installing a cool roof in Oklahoma City, OK. Cool roofs are made from a reflective material that doesn’t absorb the ultraviolet rays from the sun. Instead they reflect those rays away from the building. This lowers the amount of heat being transferred into the building through the roof.
Benefits of a Cool Roof
There are many benefits to installing a cool roof on your building. The main one is energy efficiency. The lower roof temperature of cool roofs means that your building will also be cooler and that the energy required to keep your building comfortable will drop significantly. Cool roofing materials also tend to last longer because they are not being damaged by heat from the sun. This will save you a lot of money on roof repairs and replacements in the future.
Until recently, a cool roof was only available for commercial roofing systems. Typical commercial cool roof materials include acrylic roof coatings, PVC roofing membranes and polyurea roof coatings. Currently, you can also purchase traditional roofing materials, such as metal or shingles, for your residential roof that will act as a cool roofing system. These materials have been painted with a reflective material prior to installation.
