You May Be Greener Than You ThinkMany of the Old Standards are Green Clay Tile Standing Seam Metal Roofing Applied Reflective Coatings TPO Thermoplastic Polyolefin Membrane Older Products are Greener Than Ever Before Recycled Content in Butt Shingles Built-up Roofing can Be Highly Reflective
Energy Star Roofs & Coatings Energy Star Cap Sheets• Energy Star is sponsored by the U.S. EPA• City Energy Codes are Adopting Energy Star Products• Greater than 70% Reflectivity Required By Code• Reflectivity is Derived from Ceramic Granules• 10-20% Minimum Energy Savings• Significantly Reduces Roof Temperatures up to 85 degrees Energy Star Coatings• Can Be applied over most Serviceable Roofs• Can Be Sprayed, Rolled or Brush Applied• Increases Reflectivity of Existing Roofs• Less Expensive Solution that a Re-roof• Up to 85% Reflectivity• Reflective Metal Tiles – Color is most important• Bright White reflective is most effective• Extended roof life provides significant savings• UV-blockers in coating extend roof life up to 15 years
Photovoltaic RoofingA Photovoltaic System uses solar cells toconvert light into electricity. It consists ofmultiple components, including cells,mechanical and electrical connections andmountings and a means of regulating and/ormodifying the electrical output. Thesesystems can power the building they coverand often are able to put electricity back intothe grid.The technology is in constant evolution, withnew self-adhered versions recently enteringthe market.
