Annual Savings Potential for White Roof Coatings

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.
