Green Roofing

Environmentally-Friendly Roof Systems

Over the years, Pawcatuck Roofing has stayed on the cutting edge of the changes in roofing technology, methods and materials.  Today, roofing is a key component in leadership in energy and environmental design or (LEED) which validates the “greenness” of a building.  TPO membranes are available in a highly reflective, white color that can offer significant energy savings.  On a summer day, a black roof can reach temperatures exceeding 170°F, while a TPO membrane or a roof coated with a highly reflective white elastomeric coating can be as low as 110°F, which transmits much less solar heat into a building.  Many cool roofs have reflectivities of 75 to 80 percent.  This means that only 20 to 25 percent of the sun’s energy is being absorbed into the roof.

Highly reflective white elastomeric coating such as our “Topcoat Roof Restoration System” can reduce the damage ultra violet rays can have on an existing or aging roof, while extending its serviceable life.  When your existing roof is beyond a simple repair, but not yet ready to be replaced, it’s like getting a new roof at up to half of the cost.  This also includes limited guarantees, up to 15 years.

From a “Green Building” point of view, whether your needs are maintenance coatings, total roof system replacement, LEED certification, or support for a rooftop solar array system, call Pawcatuck Roofing for the most environmentally friendly roofing systems on the market today.
