Benefits of Cool Roofing

Posted by Nicole Gale on Thu, Jul 16, 2015 @ 11:00 AM


  1. Protect Your Roof from the Sun
    The sun is your roof’s worst enemy. The intense heat and UV rays are the leading causes of blisters, splitting and roof decay. These sun-related issues create leaks, potentially threatening the contents inside the building. Installing one of the Cool Roofing Systems described below would prevent sunlight degradation, protecting your roof and extending its lifespan. 

  2. Decrease Cooling Costs

The air climate inside a building possessing a cool roof system on its rooftop has a substantially cooler indoor temperature because the cool roof system absorbs only a small percentage of heat from the sun, compared to an uncoated/non-cool roof system, which absorbs a large amount of the heat. National Coatings installed a Cool Roof System onto Harbor Freight Tools’ headquarters in Camarillo, California and the Facilities Director, Jerry Moore was greatly impressed stating, "After the National Coatings' Cool Roof was installed we definitely noticed a difference in building temperature. It's not a marginal difference, either. It is between 15-20 degrees cooler inside the warehouse and store." Click here to read the full Harbor Freight Tools Case Study 

  3. Reduce Life-Cycle Costs
    Cool Roofing Systems decrease roof maintenance costs and extend the life span of the roof beyond traditional roofing due to their highly reflective and emissive qualities.

  4. Greater Comfort and Productivity
    Inside the building of a Cool Roof, temperatures remain lower and fluctuate less. This results in a greater overall comfort for employees, tenants, and customers with or without air conditioning.

  5. Environmentally-Friendly 
    National Coatings has Cool Roof Systems which use AcryShield roof coatings that contain zero VOC's (volatile organic compounds) or very low amounts of VOC’s depending on your roofs needs. These coatings contain no harmful or strong odors. Cool Roof Systems also improve the environment as they decrease emissions in the atmosphere by cutting down on air-conditioning usage.
