CertainTeed’s CoolStar™ membranes are ENERGY STAR® rated reflective roof surfaces that can help reduce peak cooling demand by 15%. CoolStar has a factory-applied white, acrylic-based coating which is highly reflective, helping to lower building cooling costs by reflecting the sun’s rays away from the building’s roof, which lowers rooftop and attic temperatures. It is available on fourteen of their roofing membranes (BUR, SBS and APP modified bitumen).

Duro-Last’s Cool Zone® – Cool Roofing System. In the commercial roofing industry, reflectivity and cool roofing has been the dominant discussion point for several years, and the Duro-Last® Cool Zone® roofing system has set the standard for single-ply roof reflectivity and the resulting energy savings. Now, terms like sustainability, cool roofs, and cool roofing are receiving a lot of attention, and once again, Duro-Last is setting the bar.

Keep cool this summer with GenFlex’s TPO roofing system. In certain geographic regions, the GenFlex TPO cool roof system stays 50⁰ to 60⁰ F cooler at peak times than traditional roofing membranes. On top of saving on cooling costs, the reduced energy needs by using a TPO roofing system creates a more environmentally friendly building, while at the same time, keeping the occupants of the building comfortable the summer heat.
