Cool Roof Overview

Considering a green energy efficient or cool roofing system for your building?

Consider a FARR System - Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing 

Cool, green and solar systems help the environment, help energy costs, help insulation qualities and help regulate temperatures inside the building and on the roof.  Energy savings, reflectivity and insulation – All those benefits save a lot of energy dollars.

Increased awareness of the benefits of cool roofs has sparked interest with building owners in the past several years. More importantly, with the passing of Title 24 Energy Efficiency Building Standards in California and the financial incentives given by the utilities companies, “cool” roofing is now the fastest growing sector in the roofing industry. But meeting the standards for “cool” roofing can be a confusing endeavor.  Western Colloid is here to help!

Western Colloid manufactures Cool Roof Systems that can make a huge difference in the heating and cooling costs of your building.  The cost of upgrading or restoring your roof with an insulating, reflective roof system is offset by the cost reduction for heating and cooling your building.  Additionally check if your roof system upgrade is eligible for government rebates, tax deductions for energy efficiency or write-offs.

  • Apply over BUR, Modified Bitumen, Single Ply, Spray Foam and Metal.
