Roof coatings come with lots of great benefits, one of these advantages being reduced energy costs – the roof coating of the right type and color can reduce the amount of heat absorbed by the roof from solar radiations and can also reduce the amount of heat that slips out through the roof.
The two features are called solar reflectance and thermal emittance, both measures on a scale from 0 to 1 – the higher value of the parameter offered by your roofing material and roof coating, the cooler the roof. The roof coatings that offer the highest solar reflectance are usually light-colored products because light hues reflect the suns’s rays more efficiently than darker shades.
