Cool Roofs Presentation

  1. 2. Cool Roofs Program <ul><li>A new project in our commitment to energy efficiency in Baltimore </li></ul><ul><li>Using a well-tested and innovative roofing process, we create roofs that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>improve buildings’ energy efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>reduce air conditioning demands </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>decrease the City’s heat island effect </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>seal & prevent leaks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>are long lasting & easy to maintain </li></ul></ul>
  2. 4. “ Cool Roofing translates into considerable energy savings, reduced air pollution and emissions, and increased durability” -U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  3. 5. What is a Cool Roof? <ul><li>An Energy Star-approved, white acrylic re-roof system, applied over your existing roof by Civic Works experts </li></ul>
  4. 6. Why should I get one? <ul><li>Reduced cooling costs = energy savings! </li></ul><ul><li>Contribute to lowering Baltimore’s heat island effect </li></ul><ul><li>Seal & prevent leaks - includes 10 year warranty </li></ul><ul><li>Long lasting </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Easily maintained with a one layer recoat after 10-15 years </li></ul></ul>
  5. 7. How is it Installed? <ul><li>▪ Clear and clean the work area </li></ul>
  6. 8. Installation <ul><li>Apply RubberKote sealant to any areas of extra concern </li></ul>Pooling water Large cracks
  7. 9. Installation <ul><li>Embed reinforcing mesh fabric between two coats of PolaRoof AC acrylic, overlapping fabric seams three inches </li></ul>
  8. 10. Installation <ul><li>Repeat previous steps for all flashings </li></ul><ul><li>Apply a full coat of acrylic </li></ul><ul><li>Allow to dry completely </li></ul><ul><li>Apply final coat of acrylic and…. </li></ul>
  9. 11. … A Cool Roof!
  10. 12. What is this PolaRoof AC stuff anyway? <ul><li>Outstanding Features: </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces stress fatigue due to thermal cycling </li></ul><ul><li>Highest U.L. rating for fire protection at unlimited slope </li></ul><ul><li>EPA Energy Star rating reassures significant energy savings </li></ul><ul><li>Completely dry surface remains clean </li></ul><ul><li>Provides long lasting waterproofing protection </li></ul><ul><li>Environmentally friendly (contains no solvents) </li></ul>www.andek.com
  11. 13. What is this PolaRoof AC stuff anyway? <ul><li>Inhibits corrosion </li></ul><ul><li>Resists fungal attack </li></ul><ul><li>Can easily be recoated without use of primer </li></ul><ul><li>Remains flexible, tough, and weatherproof in all climates </li></ul><ul><li>Will not get brittle and crack with age </li></ul><ul><li>Protects against UV deterioration </li></ul>www.andek.com
  12. 14. How does it work? The idea is simple: White roofs reflect sunlight and emit heat better than darker ones <ul><li>On a hot, sunny, summer day, traditional roofing materials may reach 190° F </li></ul><ul><li>Cool Roofs only reach peak temperatures of 120° F </li></ul>U.S. EPA
  13. 15. Before & After
  14. 16. Cool Roofs… <ul><li>Have high solar reflectance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>-meaning they reflect a large portion of the sun’s energy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Have high thermal emittance </li></ul><ul><li>-meaning they release a large percentage of absorbed heat </li></ul>U.S. EPA
  15. 17. <ul><li>Cool Roof applications: </li></ul><ul><li>-reflect solar radiation </li></ul><ul><li>-reducing heat transfer to the interior of the building </li></ul><ul><li>-thus reducing energy demands and costs </li></ul>www.ferret.com/au U.S. EPA
  16. 18. Does it really help the environment? <ul><li>“ Where Cool Roofs have been installed, the outside temperature in the immediate area is cooler than in areas a block away without the roofs.” -Audrey Chang, Cool Roof Rating Council </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates tear-off & disposal of waste materials that occurs with traditional roof upgrade </li></ul><ul><li>“ Air conditioners use up to 1/6th of the electricity in the U.S. and on hot summer days consume 43% of the U.S. peak power load.” -Union of Concerned Scientists </li></ul>
  17. 19. Cool roofs exhibit two other advantages over darker roofs: <ul><li>Cool roofs last longer </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Changing temperatures cause a dark roof to expand and contract </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Since white roofs expand less in summer time, the roofing material is worn less </li></ul></ul>www.roofmenders.com
  18. 20. <ul><li>Cool Roofs are &quot;maintainable&quot; </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A Cool Roof can be recoated with one white acrylic application (no need for the mesh or extra layers) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This eliminates tear off costs over the lifetime of a building </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Only done every 5-10 years beyond initial warranty </li></ul></ul>www.roofmenders.com
  19. 21. How much does it cost? <ul><li>Just like almost all energy-efficiency upgrades, the up-front cost of a Cool Roof is slightly higher than a traditional roof </li></ul>▪ But once you factor in maintenance costs over the life of each roof and energy cost-savings provided by a Cool Roof, it is clearly an economically wise investment
  20. 22. <ul><li>In lieu of a complete Cool Roof system, you can opt for 1 or 2 layers of the white acrylic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Similar cooling effects and energy cost savings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase in durability and longevity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The acrylic itself has a 10 year product warranty so this is still a good investment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Civic Works does not provide a 10 year warranty against leaks with this service </li></ul></ul>What other options are there?
  21. 23. What other options are there? <ul><li>Colors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Same acrylic product and same installation, so warranty still applies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Colors other than white are not Energy Star rated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But another light color will still have a drastic effect </li></ul></ul>
  22. 24. Color Options…
  23. 25.
