WHite LavaCool Roof Coatings lower maintenance costs by protecting your roof surface. These coatings are also excellent at preserving your roof against foot traffic, hail and other harsh condition that breakdown the protection of your roof. Reflective coatings allow your roof to experience normal expansion and contraction without causing cracks, leaks or damage. The AcryShield coating line and SRC Silicone Coatings provide industry leading UV protection, longevity and brightness. These cool roof coatings are formulated for superior dirt pick-up resistance and protection against biological attach, such as algae and mold.

Lowers Air Conditioning Costs and Energy Consumption

Energy consumption can be drastically lowered when a highly reflective roof coating has been installed on the buildings rooftop. The coatings ability to reflect the sun’s heat allows the building to remain cooler, lowering and sometimes eliminating the need to use the air conditioning unit. There are several reflective coatings available, make sure you choose a coating that is rich in UV blocking pigments. National Coatings has multiple coatings that are listed on the Cool Roof Rating Council’s website and have passed several industry wide tests, proving their effectiveness at reflecting the sun’s heat. Twice, National Coatings was selected from over 175 major roofing manufacturers as the EPA’s Energy Star® Partner of the Year award for promoting energy-efficient roof products – making them the only roofing products manufacturer to receive this award to date.

Hear directly from our customer: "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." - Jerry Moore, Facilities Director at Harbor Freight Tools
