National Energy Technologies, a Pennsylvania energy efficiency company has added a superior roofing technology to its list of services. According to the company spokesperson; “ Most people don’t think a roof coating effects their energy bill, but it does” New reflective roof coatings have proven to be as effective as insulation for thermal heat protection. This white roof coating is capable reflecting away so much of the sun’s ultraviolet heat signature that it is capable of reducing the need for air conditioning up to 40% in some building types. This roof coating is not only reflective but is widely considered among the finest flat roof coating available. It boasts a warranty up to 20 years and seals and coats everything it touches. This product is a flexible multipurpose Kevlar reinforced Thermoset coating able to be applied in one coat and adheres to 1670 lbs. per square inch. It is especially suited to metal roof applications where surface movement will render other roof coatings ineffective. Because of huge temperature swings on metal roof’s they are notorious for expansion, seam stretching and leaks. This patented white roof system will dramatically reduce the metal roof temperature seam travel and will remain flexible to maximize seal. It is able to adhere to wood, concrete, metal, foam, petroleum based and rubber roof membranes and will keep the roof temperature with 10 degrees of ambient temperatures. This same substance is being used to coat the battleship USS Texas, US port authority NY, water storage tanks, basement walls, marine pilling’s or any other surface that needs a far superior adhesion under wet marine conditions. Additional material benefits include superior mold resistance, UV resistance, class-A fire rating, and a 200% sustained lifetime flexibility. White roof’s will also increase the effectiveness of air conditioning equipment which is often left baking on black hot roof’s breathing its makeup air from oven like conditions. Solar companies will also highly recommend a new white roof surface with extended warranty's, before panel placement, for maximum performance. Solar panels also have a 20 year expected life.
Why is our reflective roof your best value?
Since our two part epoxy based product is so tough that we are able to repair and then coat over your existing roofing material. For stone ballasted roofs we are able to carefully move the stone around the roof as we complete the project in sections. Our product is applied in multiple coats and often with a fabric membrane embedded. Like a fiberglass this tough surface will outlast all others and is easily repairable. And don't forget the massive landfill cost savings avoided. When a ballasted roof is complete and the stone is moved back into place a reflective coat can then be applied to the stone making a ballasted roof truly reflective. And due to advanced application equipment we are often able to complete a roof with our process for a lower sq foot price than a conventional roof.
