Cool Roofing Services
Cool Roofing Specialists: offering time-tested, proven performance.
Cool roofs are becoming a viable investment for people who are concerned about the environment and saving money. From luscious aboveground gardens to traditional-style roofs with cool color pigments, there are many innovative ways to efficiently reflect solar energy from a roof and in return help lower a building’s heating and cooling costs.
A cool roof is defined by two radioactive properties: solar reflectance (the measure of the immediate solar radiation that is reflected off the roof surface and emitted back into the atmosphere without heating the roof) and thermal emittance (the ability to radiate solar energy as infrared light after it has been absorbed by the roof.)
Along with reducing energy bills, a cool roof installed by Royal Roofing Company can help reduce both the urban heat island effect and smog. This is because cool roofs diminish greenhouse gas emissions by conserving electricity and reducing power plant production demand incurred from air conditioning use. Since creating electricity wastes energy and produces CO2 and other air contaminants, a cool roof installed by local roofers will indefinitely help the environment.
In the past, a white roof was the only way to reflect the sun’s harmful rays. However, recent advances in material technology has introduced cool color pigments that are capable of reflecting solar energy in the Near Infrared (NIR) spectrum, opening the door to a myriad of cool roofing color and material selections. Homeowners and business owners alike can choose from various stylish roof designs that are more than able to deflect the sun’s rays and save them money in the long run.
