The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has conducted studies that demonstrate that in sunny conditions, black roof surfaces can get up to 70 degrees hotter than white reflective roof surfaces - translating to an estimated $750 million annual savings potential nationwide from replacing existing black roofs with Energy Star rated white reflective coatings like those from Conklin.
Roof coatings are made from a variety of materials that comply with building code standards for cool roofs. Installers can roll-on or spray roof coatings over spray polyurethane foam (SPF), metal, concrete, weathered asphalt, composite, modified bitumen, EPDM, TPO, PVC, and built-up roof systems.
