A "Cool" Roof Doesn't Need Shades

A cool roof coating (or white coating) is a liquid membrane that is applied to a roof surface to reflect the suns rays. The roof stays cooler and reduces the amount of heat transferred to the building below, keeping the building a cooler and more constant temperature.

It is like wearing a white t-shirt versus wearing a black t-shirt on a hot day. The lighter t-shirt reflects more sunlight and absorbs less heat.

These elastomeric roof coatings not only dramatically reduce peak cooling demands on a building (10-15 percent) but also have the ability to provide waterproofing benefits to repair leaky roofs.

Washington Roofing & Insulation works with quality manufacturers to provide commercial buildings with the most effective solution to their roofing needs. The reflective coatings we use meet or exceed the Energy Star's tough criteria as well as Miami-Dade's rigorous requirements. Contact us at (620) 792-2430 to discuss if your building is ready for a "cool" roof.


  1. I need to check out my roofing again. Last time I was at my house in Montreal was last year, its probably degraded since then.

  2. yes the white color reflects the more amount of sun rays as compare to black or other colors so, application of white coating on roof make your internal environment cool it repels the rays back and moderate the inner temperature.

  9. There are lots of articles extolling the virtues of the white roof but as per a recent research by Stanford University, this heat reflecting property is actually overrated, the heat being reflected goes back into the atmosphere and actually raises the temperature of the place.

  10. When there’s an issue with your roof, it’s extremely important to look after it as quickly as possible.

    Also seemingly tiny troubles will promptly become significant ones. However roof problems aren’t always simple to observe, and lots of property owners will not locate troubles with their roof till the issues have ended up being destructive.
