Cool Roof Properties – The Hydro-Stop PremiumCoat system has been tested and greatly exceeds the requirements of the Department of Energy for being a cool roof system. Over the past decade the Department of Energy has done extensive research on the advantages of cool roof systems and have positively concluded that by using a cool roof system one can:
Reduce Cooling Energy Cost by 20% to 70%
Reduce Air Pollution
Extend Equipment Life
Reduce the need for re-roofing
Hydro-Stop’s cool roof system does this by using these two principles.
High Albedo – Hydro Stop reflects or scatters over 78% of the amount of sunlight energy that is radiated on it. The DOE considers anything over 50% good and Hydro-Stop has one of the highest in the industry.
Emissivity – Hydro Stop radiates over 90% of its stored heat energy away from itself keeping which is equally important for having a cool roof. Hydro-Stop’s cool roof system can save you money on your cooling energy and can extend the life of your roof.
