Ambient temperatures of 90° can mean roof temperatures of 180° for many metal roof systems.

heatroof Heat Doubles Temperatures of Many Metal Roof Systems Causing Stress and LeaksSoaring temperatures take their toll on the performance of roof systems as temperature fluctuations (both daily and seasonal) cause the roof’s metal panels and stress points to expand and contract.

In addition to putting stress on seams, roof fasteners often back out. Both seams and fasteners become entry points for water penetration. Creaking sounds are often heard inside metal buildings and warehouses as a result of thermal shock to roof systems.

Reflective roof coatings see increased market given energy and comfort benefits

Building owners and facility managers in increasing numbers are seeing the benefits of “cool roof” elastomeric coatings for roof system restoration. Reflective roof coatings are a very attractive alternative to replacement from the standpoints of both cost and sustainability. Additionally, restoration can extend the useful life of qualifying roof systems by at least 10 years. Restoration addresses the issues of leaking seams while allowing many facilities to significantly reduce cooling costs. Other benefits include increased facility comfort and the fact that roof tear-off waste is not added to local landfills.
