The Associated Press reports that when the temperature on a roof is measured with an infrared gun, white roofs can be 45 degrees cooler than conventional dark-colored roofing material. This difference means cooler indoors that need less air conditioning to cool, which makes a building more energy efficient. This “cool roof” program has taken off […]
To help combat global warming and urban heating, we might just need to paint the town white. A new modeling study simulated the effects of painting roofs white to reflect incoming solar rays and found that it could help cool cities and reduce the effects of global warming. The feasibility of such an initiative for […]
UltraBondRS Silicone Roofing Systems are high performance, fluid-applied systems engineered for toughness and durability. They dramatically increase and extend the service life of built-up,modified bitumen, metal, concrete roofs and single-ply membranes. UltraBondRS provides a cost effective, sustainable alternative to traditional roofs that require expensive and disruptive tear-off replacement. Serving New York, Denver and Florida.
President Obama’s energy adviser has suggested all the world’s roofs should be painted white as part of efforts to slow global warming. Professor Steven Chu, the US Energy Secretary, said the unusual proposal would mean homes in hot countries would save energy and money on air conditioning by deflecting the sun’s rays. More pale surfaces […]
