Central Roofing fixed a bunch of leaks on our building. They did an excellent job. This last rain storm put it to the test everything I had had... read more fixed worked great. I will have them do more repairs for us at Zadro Products in the future, when the time comes. Thanks!
Brandon is amazing, very responsive and on time.

Existing roofs with only minor damage or leaks and only have a single layer of roofing are excellent candidates for re-roofing.
On the other hand, if your roof has significant water damage, leaks everywhere, and smells of mold then a roof replacement is the best option.
Not to be overlooked, roof preparation is the correction of roof issues prior to installation of the new coating system. This is a critical step to insure a quality installation that will maximize the useful life of the new roof.

Apply White Elastomeric Top Coat
After 1 or 2 days of curing, the roof is ready for the white elastomeric top coat to be spray applied directly to the polyester reinforcement. After curing, you have an Energy-Star rated, Title-24 compliant Cool Roof that can dramatically reduce surface temperature and help reduce cooling costs.
Apply one coat of TROPICAL #918B PRIMER at the rate of approximately 1.0 - 1.5 gallons per 100 sq.ft. over entire roof surface.
Detail around roof structures.
Modified Bitumen is a blend of atactic polypylene polymers mixed with high grade asphalt, reinforced with a non-woven polyester mat. The expected useful life of this material is 20 years. Modified Bitumen is the replacement technology for the old Mineral Capsheet (Hot Mop) technology.
Applying a white elastomeric topcoat (aka Commercial Cool Roof Coating) to your roof building has numerous advantages over a conventional roof. Roof restoration coating systems comprise approximately 65% of today’s commercial roofing needs. They are more cost-effective than traditional means of re-roofing. And to mention the potential savings in energy bills.
Here are 13 reasons why getting a cool roof makes sense beyond the obvious energy and cost savings:

Cool Roof Coatings can improve your building’s energy efficiency: Cool roof coatings are designed to reflect sunlight and reduce heat absorption, effectively lowering the surface temperature of the roof. By reducing heat transfer into the building, cool roof coatings can significantly improve energy efficiency and reduce energy bills, especially in warmer climates. In short, a cool roof can lead to substantial energy savings over time.
That’s right because protective coatings are liquid based which makes them adaptable to many types of roofing systems. The key to any roofing system is installing it correctly. The commercial roofing professionals at Central Roofing have over 30 years of experience and specialize in energy-efficient roofing systems. Check out our reviews on what some of our clients had to say about us.
Cool roof coatings can be applied to various flat roofing materials, including bitumen, metal, concrete, and modified bitumen. They are compatible with existing roofs, allowing for retrofitting without the need for a full roof replacement. Cool roof coatings can be formulated as liquids or membranes, offering flexibility in application methods and ensuring compatibility with different roof types.
Additionally, they shield the roof from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which can cause degradation of roofing materials. As a result, cool roof coatings can extend the lifespan of commercial flat roofs and reduce the need for frequent repairs or replacements.
Cool roof coatings can help the environment in several ways:
1. Energy savings: Cool roof coatings are designed to reflect a significant portion of the sun’s heat, reducing the amount of heat transferred into the building. As a result, buildings with cool roofs require less energy for cooling, especially during hot days. By reducing the need for air conditioning, cool roofs help lower electricity consumption, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions associated with power generation.
2. Reduced urban heat island effect: The urban heat island effect occurs when cities and urban areas become significantly hotter than their surrounding rural areas due to the abundance of concrete, asphalt, and other heat-absorbing surfaces. Cool roof coatings help mitigate this effect by reflecting solar radiation and reducing surface temperatures. This can lead to cooler microclimates, improving comfort levels and air quality in urban areas.
3. Decreased air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions: By reducing energy consumption for cooling, cool roof coatings indirectly contribute to reducing air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions. Power generation from fossil fuels is a significant source of air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions. When buildings consume less energy, power plants can operate at lower capacities or use cleaner energy sources, resulting in fewer emissions.
4. Enhanced roof durability: Cool roof coatings can extend the lifespan of roofs by reducing the amount of thermal stress they endure. By reflecting sunlight and reducing heat absorption, cool roofs experience less expansion and contraction, which can cause roof materials to degrade over time. Prolonging the life of roofs reduces the need for premature roof replacements and decreases waste from discarded roofing materials.
5. Water conservation: Some cool roof coatings have the ability to retain and release water slowly, helping to reduce stormwater runoff. This can alleviate stress on stormwater systems, prevent water pollution, and contribute to water conservation efforts.
It’s important to note that while cool roof coatings offer environmental benefits, their effectiveness can vary depending on factors such as climate, building design, and local conditions. Additionally, cool roofs are more effective in warmer climates compared to cooler regions where heating needs may outweigh cooling requirements. Therefore, it’s essential to consider local climate and building characteristics when evaluating the potential environmental benefits of cool roof coatings.
