Sustainable Facility Life Cycle Management Sustainable Facility Life Cycle Management Presentation Transcript

  • Rethinking Life Cycle Costs with Fluid Applied Roof Membranes.
  • Cool Roofs = Good Economics 98 degrees Fahrenheit 178 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Definition of a Fluid Applied Membrane
    • An aqueous liquid suspension, applied to roofing
    • substrates, which dries to a seamless, resilient,
    • durable membrane which is flexible across a broad
    • temperature range.
    • Paint: An aqueous liquid continuous film applied at a film thickness of 3 - 8 wet mils.
    • Coating: An aqueous liquid continuous membrane applied (in multiple coats) at a film thickness of 8 - 50 wet mils.
    What is the difference between a paint and a coating?
  • Benefits of Roof Coatings vs. Paint
    • Remains flexible
    • Resists standing water
    • Excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates
    • Resists UV exposure
    • Applied at greater film thickness for increased flexibility
    • Resistances to foot traffic, i.e. tensile strength
    • Higher reflectivity and increased emissivity
  • What makes a quality Fluid Applied Membrane?
  • Volume Solids (VS) Ratio of the Pigments to the Resin is PVC Lower PVC is better Higher the PVC the lower the quality High Quality Coating Pigments Resin Lower Quality Coating Pigments Resin
  • Life-Cycle Costs
  • The sum of all recurring and one-time (non-recurring) costs over the full life span or a specified period of a good, service, structure, or system. Life-Cycle Costs
  • How Fluid Applied coatings effect Life cycle cost
    • Purchase
    • Installations
    • Maintenance
    • Energy savings
    • A/C life extensions
    • System Upgrade
    • Renewability
  • Purchase Economics “ Cool Roof” Costs vs. Benefits
  • Where to use a Fluid Applied Roof.
    • Metal
    • Concrete
    • EPDM
      • (Ethylene –Propylene-Diene-Monomer)
    • Asphalt, Modified Bitumen, BUR
      • (smooth and granulated)
    • Hypalon / PVC
    Typically Fluid Applied Systems are selected for the following roof types:
  • Considering a Fluid Applied Roof System / Roof Restoration System?
    • Yes, it is definitely less expensive, but you need to know…
  • When do you consider Roof Restoration?
    • Percentage wet roof
    • Type of Roof
    • Type of Deck/Insulation
    • Condition of Substrate
    • Number of re-roofs
    • It’s just as important to know when not to use a restoration system
  • Not every roof “Qualifies” for a fluid applied system.
  • Where to Start?
    • Every roof needs to be evaluated.
  • Roof inspection
  • Roof inspection
  • Repair bad areas
  • “ Qualified” roof for fluid applied system.
    • No need to tear off old roof.
    • No need to raise equipment on roof.
    • Makes most roofs better than original.
    • Sustainable, Renewable…lower life-cycle cost.
    • Substantial savings over other conventional roofing systems…more details later.
  • Labor cost reductions
    • Roof Equipment
    • Penetrations
  • No need to raise equipment on roof.
  • No need to raise equipment on roof.
  • Penetrations
  • Penetrations
  • Waterproof Penetrations
  • Maintenance Fluid Applied roof systems are seamless, require less maintenance Conventional roof systems fail at the seams
  • Seams…s eparating
  • Repairing seams is standard roof maintenance on seamed roofs. Seamless roofs require less maintenance: lower roof life-cycle costs
  • Seams
  • Tape & Waterproof seams
  • See Seam Sample
  • Metal seams & fasteners
  • Seam Preparation
  • Penetration details
  • Penetration details
  • Details
  • Basecoat…multi-layer system
  • Finished Fluid Applied “Cool Roof”
  • Finished Fluid Applied “Cool Roof”
  • Finished Fluid Applied “Cool Roof”
    • A 7 story building is exposed to more radiation on the walls than on the roof.
    • A single story building receives 70% of it’s solar radiation on the roof.
    Radiation Exposure SOLAR RADIATION
  • A radiant heat barrier…
    • Reduces surface temperatures by as much as 20˚ C
    • Reflects between 80% and 87% or radiant heat
    • Limits radiant heat absorption between 15% and 20%
    • Reduces energy consumption by as much as 40%
  • United States Air Force
        • “… After the application of the coating,
        • the average peak temperature in the
        • warehouse area dropped to 86° F,
        • a decrease of 17° F. “
    • - James A., Capt. USAF Chief RSD of Civil Engineering
  • Before After
  • United States Army
      • “… a 64° F reduction in roof surface temperature, a 23° F reduction in attic temperature and a 10° F reduction in room temperature as a result of the insulative and reflective value of the coating.”
    • - Benjamin S., Col, Dept. of the Army
  • Cool Roofing improves insulation performance
    • “ The thermal resistance of insulation installed immediately below a black membrane has been found to be up to 30% lower than advertised , when measured at peak summertime temperatures in Austin, Texas.”
    • - Konopacki and Akbari, 2001
  • “ Cool Roofs” increase insulation performance
  • Hashem Akbari Heat Island Group Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
    • Cool roof standards are designed to reduce a/c demand, save money, and save emissions. In Los Angeles they will eventually save ~$100,000 per hr.
  • Added roof cycle cost savings for ENERGY STAR® Fluid Applied Cool Roof Systems.
    • According to EPA about $40 billion is spent annually in the United States alone to air condition buildings-1/6 of all electricity generated in a year.
    • ENERGY STAR® qualified roof products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and reduce energy bills by up to 50%. – Department of Energy
    • Downsizes Cooling Equipment-A reflective roof can reduce peak cooling demand by 10-15%. As a result the building owner may be able purchase a smaller, more efficient and less expensive cooling system. -EPA
    • Existing cooling systems will not have to work as hard to maintain the same comfort levels and may require less maintenance.
    • Increases Roof Product life- ENERGY STAR® qualified roof products maintain a more constant temperature and reduce thermal shock; cool rain/hot roof causes sharp drop in temperature, extremes of expansion and contraction.
    • Thermal Shock = stress and roof degradation.
  • Solar Shield Energy Savings
  • Renewability / Sustainability After ten years - extend the life an additional 10 years At only 40 -70% of the original cost of the coating system.
    • “… almost immediately the room temperature inside was cooled by 19° F.”
    • -Donald E., Yakima Ice Arena
    Substantiated results…
    • “ In the past, we have struggled to maintain minus 12° F… Since the application, we have been able to maintain minus 15° F or less.”
    • -Plant Superintendent, Land-O-Sun Dairies
      • “ Our engineering department reported
      • that the plant is consuming less energy …”
    • -Vice President, Rainier Cold Storage & Ice
  • Q.T.G. Quaker, Tropicana, Gatorade 140,000 Square Ft. of smooth built up roofing in Dallas, TX.
  • Inteplast 1.3 million square feet currently under contract.
    • Extend the usefulness of existing roofs.
    • Protect from Ultra-violet degradation
    • Eliminates/minimizes roof tear-off.
    • No need to raise equipment on roof.
    • Makes most roofs better than original.
    • Sustainable, Renewable, lower life-cycle cost.
