Cool Roofs

The Colorado sun bears down hard in the summer. And, because our climate can change in such a short time period, cool winter days can quickly become mild or even warm. This presents a challenge for keeping energy bills low, a challenge that can be met with the strategic use of roofing systems that work to ‘cool’ the building they’re installed on.

With as volatile and unpredictable as the weather in Colorado can be, it’s no surprise that more and more industrial cool roofing systems are being used. These specially designed and engineered roofing systems take full advantage of reflective materials and color options that work year-round to reflect sunlight. This has the effect of lowering energy costs and helping to reduce the amount of urban heat that accumulates over time. 

For a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective roofing solution, ‘cool roofs’ simply can’t be beat.

Cool Off with Expert Installation 

A-to-Z Roofing & Exteriors offers a wide variety of cool roofing systems, many of which are cost-competitive with other, less energy efficient alternatives. 

We are proud to install and support the following industrial cool roofing material suppliers:

CertainTeed CoolStar™ 

CertainTeed’s CoolStar™ industrial roofing solution is one of the few that is Energy Star-rated and capable of helping to reduce cooling costs by as much as 15% or more in some cases.

The secret is in the acrylic-based, white coating that reflects a much higher amount of direct sunlight compared with traditional roofing systems. This proprietary coating technology is available on more than a dozen different Built-Up Roof (BUR), Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS), and Atactic Polypropylene (APP) modified bitumen membranes. 

A CoolStar™-treated industrial roof is a great choice for buildings that have significant amounts of unshaded, commercial building rooftop exposure to the Colorado elements.

Duro-Last’s Cool Zone® 

For single-ply roof reflectivity, it’s hard to beat both the cost and the effectiveness of a Cool Zone roofing system from Duro-Last. By focusing on reducing the impact of two specific light wavelengths—Ultraviolet (UV) and Infrared(IR)—the Duro-Last Cool Zone industrial roofing system both reflects and protects, which is the ideal combination for most commercial roofs in Colorado. 

Because the Cool Zone roofing system is composed of PVC, it’s recyclable and, therefore, an environmentally smart choice.

Featuring EverGuard® protection technology, GAF’s TPO membranes are some of the most commonly used and highly rated in the industry. 

With a GAF colored TPO membrane, low-slope roofs of any size can benefit from increased sunlight reflectance, lower cooling costs, and a more attractive overall look to the finished roof. 

And the best part? Custom colors! That’s right—if you want your TPO membrane to be a specific color, the roofing professionals at A-to-Z Roofing & Exteriors can work with GAF directly to make this happen. Just call and ask!
