A cool roof system provides energy efficiency for any building, reflecting infrared and UV wavelengths to reduce the heat being transferred to the roof’s surface by as much as 100 degrees! Cool roofing systems are either sprayed on or unrolled in sheets and are available in several forms:

  • Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) – White, reflective coatings that adhere to most existing roofs.
  • Single-ply membranes – Fully adhered or fastened roofing systems that are ideal for new or heavily damaged roofs.
  • Other roof coatings engineered for nearly all types of roofing.

How a Cool Roof System Will Save You Money

how-to-save-energy-ohioThere are many ways in which a cool roof system saves you money. The most obvious way is in monthly utility costs. As powerful UV rays hit your roof, heat is absorbed. Some roof materials absorb more heat than others, such as metal, but all roof types absorb some degree of heat. This heat then transfers from your roof to the whole building, including your work space. As your office heats up, you use more A/C. The more A/C you use, the higher your monthly utility bill is. Running the A/C harder also causes more frequent repairs.

Money Saving Effect #1: A cool roof system reflects 80 – 85% of the sun’s UV rays. This results in a much cooler roof, a much cooler building, and significantly lower monthly bills. This aspect alone often pays for the roof coating in under 10 years.

Money Saving Effect #2: The reduced stress on your A/C unit will lead to fewer repairs.

How a Cool Roof System Will Save You Time

Our cool roof systems can be applied in one business day. Our team is in and out and you won’t even notice we’re there. You can keep your business doors open with no disruptions.

Money Saving Effect #3: No disruptions to your business. Many roofing services require you to shut down business and vacate the building for a few days, loosing productivity in the process. Not a cool roof system application though.

How a Cool Roof System Will Save Your Roof

Our cool roof systems can be applied to just about any roof material!

  • Metal
  • Asphalt (rolled or shingled)
  • Built-up roofing (BUR)
  • EPDM (rubber)
  • Flat roofs
  • Hot tar and gravel
  • Low-slope roofs
  • Slate
  • TPO
  • And more!

One common alternative to a cool roof application is a full roof replacement. This would be an example of a service that requires you to shut down business for several days. First Class Roofing’s cool roof systems help to restore your current roof, adding decades of life back to it, and helping you avoid an expensive and time-consuming full roof replacement.

Industry studies have shown that many commercial roofs are replaced prematurely. Many building owners feel that as soon as a roof starts to show repetitive problems, the only solution is to replace it. This is not the case.

Money Saving Effect #4: Our cool roof coatings cost on average half of what a full roof replacement typically costs. The combination of roof tear-off, landfill disposal fees, and new roof material and labor adds up quickly.

How a Cool Roof System Will Save the Environment

cool-roof-system-application-ohioYou’ll be using less energy on a daily basis and won’t be contributing to landfills. Not to mention the fuel needed to transport all that waste to the landfills. A cool roof system is the “green” choice in commercial roofing. Your environment footprint will be greatly reduced.

Money Saving Effect #5: The Federal Government supports business who make environmentally-friendly choices such as this. Many building owners who apply a cool roof system are able to write off a portion of the costs on their annual taxes.
