How it works

Cool Roof Rebates

As hard as the CFO might try, it’s just not possible to ignore a roof. In the long run, the roof will always make its presence felt, sometimes in very inconvenient ways — just ask the hospital that had its surgical suite damaged by a leaky roof. It can be hard to win capital dollars for roofing even in the best of times (that hospital roof failed during a much stronger economy). But roofs in sad shape simply cannot be ignored. If a roof is already a candidate for replacement, re-covering or re-coating, savvy facility executives should go the extra mile and consider cool roofing options. There are plenty of reasons why. For one thing, some utility providers offer incentives to spur users into purchasing cool roofing systems. The possibility of an incentive alone makes it worthwhile to look into cool roofing. Of course, for facility executives in some areas, cool roofing may not even be optional anymore as local government bodies tighten up building codes to make buildings more energy efficient. Whether a cool roof is mandated or not, a roof that’s both reflective and emissive can provide a range of benefits for the entire organization. A cool roof can significantly cut heating and cooling loads. It can also act as a shot in the arm for public relations efforts. And with President Obama promising tighter efficiency standards for buildings and a system to cap carbon dioxide emissions, cool roofs are one way facility executives can ready their organizations.

Energy Boost

Low-slope roof system replacement can improve a building’s energy efficiency

When you think about an energy-efficient building, you may picture a newly constructed building that meets or exceeds LEED® standards and features many energy-saving bells and whistles. However, there is a great opportunity to save energy by rehabilitating an existing building instead of constructing a new building. In fact, the real savings—in energy and dollars—lie with existing roofs in the U.S., which encompass 50 billion square feet, according to the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing.
The Department of Energy (DOE) and other policymaking organizations have established efficiency targets for buildings with the ultimate objective of net-zero energy and emissions. As a result, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Inc. is developing standard 90.1-2010, “Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings,” with the intention that when a typical newly constructed commercial building is designed to comply with the standard, it will consume 30 percent less energy than buildings complying with ASHRAE 90.1-2004.
According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, a typical commercial building would consume more than 70,000 British thermal units (Btu) per square foot (floor area) per year under ASHRAE 90.1-2004, in which case a potential 21,000 Btu per square foot per year reduction could be achieved with an ASHRAE 90.1-2010-compliant building.
This new standard will provide substantial progress toward these reduction targets when promptly adopted and effectively enforced. However, the proposed standard language does not adequately address energy-efficient improvements to existing buildings.

Paybacks of Preventive Maintenance

Investing in preventive roof system maintenance is worth the cost

To maintain profitability in an economy of sluggish markets and corporate downsizing, many companies are cutting costs in various areas. All too often, one of the first areas to be reduced is maintenance.

Maintenance is a tempting target for budget slashing because, in a sense, maintenance means paying for things that aren’t broken—so the true costs of skimping on maintenance are hidden. But when they come due, it can mean big trouble. This is especially true of one particularly high-impact area of preventive maintenance in which many companies fall short: roof asset upkeep.

By de-emphasizing, postponing or curtailing preventive roof system maintenance, organizations are realizing short-term savings but creating situations that can have long-term and seriously negative consequences. The fact is properly functioning roof systems are vital to an organization’s success, and they’re under assault 24 hours per day. Extreme heat and cold, ultraviolet rays, heavy rains and winds, contaminants and rooftop traffic are some common elements roof systems must withstand regularly.

Once a roof system begins to deteriorate, as it inevitably will without maintenance, resulting leaks and other problems can affect an organization’s bottom line in many ways.

Roof Coatings

Roof Coatings
Roof coatings can be used to restore metal, asphalt built up, modified bitumen, polyurethane foam, single ply ( EPDM, TPO, PVC ).

Sixty percent of all roofs in the United States are replaced prematurely because of leaks.

  • Roof Coatings will help prevent roof leaks, while extending the life of your roof. Most coating manufacturers offer 5 or 10 year system warranties on coating Installations.

Roof coatings are a popular alternative because it is more cost effective than a retrofit. Additionally, compared to a retrofit which essentially adds another layer of roofing material, Roof coatings create a chemical bond to the current roofing substrate essentially ‘bulking up’ the existing system.

A roof coating job can pay for itself through reduced energy bills in summer.
Americans spend about $40 billion annually to air condition buildings – sixth of all electricity generated in this country. Coatings reflect 85-90% of heat and ultraviolet rays from the sun- reducing your air conditioning cost by up to 20-30%.
