If your roof is 15 years old or more, chances are you’ll need to replace it soon. When you’re ready, Great Lakes Roofing would welcome the opportunity to propose a new cool roofing system.
In addition to increased repair and maintenance costs on your old roof, if it’s a black membrane or built-up system, it’s likely costing you money because of higher energy bills. Dark roofing materials absorb summertime heat and transfer it to the interior of the building, creating a costly burden on HVAC systems. On the other hand, white single-ply membranes reflect heat, lowering air-conditioning costs and creating a cooler, more productive environment for workers in non-conditioned spaces.
HVAC units on a cool roof can work less hard because the air they’re cooling for transfer to the building can be 50 degrees or more cooler than the air hovering on a black roof. That translates to less money you spend on cooling energy costs, and less wear and tear on your HVAC system.
Here’s a plus: Installation costs for cool roofs are comparable to those for other roofing systems but have a shorter payback period because of the money you’ll save on cooling.
