White roofing can make a difference in the mid-Atlantic area due to extremely warm summers. A grey, black or other dark tinted roof over a home may heat up to 180°F. At that temperature, not even your bare hand can touch the roof comfortably.
Not true for a white roof surface. With a white, acrylic coating, only 20% of the sunlight is absorbed into the roofing. This observation means you could comfortably lie down on a white roof on a hot summer afternoon. These roofs are popularly called Cool Roofs.
If you are seeking an experienced company to offer an estimate to convert your existing roof to a Cool Roof, one of us would be delighted to visit your site, discuss the alternatives available and, if requested, submit a quote. Both the owner (me) and my crew have been applying Cool Roofs since the 1980s, which makes both my crew chief and I, "old-timers" in the business. Click here for a map of our geographical work area.
Beyond information about our contracting services, this site is designed for individuals interested in liquid-applied systems with existing roofs--1000 photos, technical tidbits and history. These web pages are prepared by the same contractor that specializes in the restoration of these roofs. She enjoys dabbling in website construction, therefore photos and articles are simply presented. All pictures are from Roof Menders projects, the same contractor.
