WHITE ROOF-GREEN CHOICE
A white roof in an urban area has become an obvious choice. When searching for more environmentally-friendly solutions, people are turning more and more toward white single-ply membranes (EPDM/TPO). They are very durable and less damageable to the environment then other systems. They can also be used as a base water shield when building a roof terrace, roof garden or green roof.
WHITE ROOFS KEEP THE HEAT DOWN
A white roof’s main characteristic is that it reflects light radiation and does not absorb it. It helps keep urban heat islands down in the cities and allows a far more pleasant use of roofs by offering the possibility of building roof terraces or roof gardens. Roof terraces located next to conventional asphalt or gravel roofs often are subjected to large temperature increases, and can become a nuisance for city residents. Such high heat can also prevent plants from growing properly on a roof garden.
A white roof lowers heat inside a building thus helping you save money on your energy bill caused by air-conditioning overuse. Many people must endure severe summer heatwaves and a white roof will make their home or business a much cooler place.
WHITE ROOFS LAST LONGER
While heat has a major impact on a roof’s lifespan and can damage roof membranes, a white roof does not overheat, which is a big advantage. This is the reason why an EPDM white roof will last longer than a traditional roof (40 to 50 year lifespan)
Continuer votre bon travail.
Client satisfait. Merci!
Simplement pour dire que je suis très satisfait des ouvriers qui ont fait la toiture avec de la membrane EPDM 60 Mil blanche , sur mon duplex au 750 Grande-allée à Boisbriand. Je veux aussi souligner le professionnalisme de l’estimateur ainsi que la propreté des lieux après le travail. Bravo à toute l’équipe !
