Go Green, Save the Planet, Global Warming...
We hear these terms all the time, but how can they save your company money? A White Elastomeric Coated Roof has a reflectivity rating of up to 86%. That alone, will cool your facility, and keep your HVAC system from working as hard.
Imagine a Cool Roof Nation:

Restore your Roof, help save the Environment
Approximately 11 million tons of asphalt roofing waste ends up in the US landfills each year. Discarded roofing comprises about 7% to 10% of the total landfill waste. American Roof, Inc. extends the life of your roof while helping the environment, and you avoid the high costs of tear-off and disposal.
Cool Roofs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cool_roof) use roofing materials that are highly reflective. A roofing product that has high solar reflectance when measured by any number of standard methods has high albedo. Albedo is merely an imposing word for solar reflectance.
If a roof surface is light in color or has high solar reflectance it will be cooler. This method not only helps the Earth and environment, but also lowers your utility bills and protects your roof and may reduce expensive maintenance costs, as well as extending the life cycle of your roof. By utilizing these reflective roof materials, you also reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_heat_island)
Due to the highly reflective properties, elastomeric roof coatings greatly reduce rooftop temperatures allowing less heat transfer into the building. Plus, rooftop air conditioning units run more efficiently because the air temperature surrounding the unit is now cooler.
Plus, there are Federal, State and often Local rebates and incentives to help you further your savings - check this site to find out more information for your area: www.dsireusa.org
