Highly refelctive "cool" roofs are having their day in the sun. During the warmest weather, studies have indicated that they lower roof temperature by up to 40% and decrease the amount of head transferred into a building's interior. That helps reduce energy needs for cooling, and using less energy not only saves money, it also reduces the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere.
The average roof absorbs a large portion of the sun's ultraviolet rays as heat. Conklin's white SPF roofing system reflects 84% of the sun's heat, cooling your building and saving you as much as 30 percent in air conditioning costs.
A great return on investment is another important reason to install Conkling's SPF Roofing System. Many satisfied building owners discover that a Conklin roof pays for itself during the warranty period in lower air conditioning costs. Federal tax rebates, tax credits and deductions may also offset your investment.
Conklin SPF Roofing Systems provide leak-free protection and exceptional energy savings for years, often exceeding the warranty period. They maintain maximum reflectivity and energy savings because their surfaces are resistant to dirt and discoloration. Annual or bi-annual cleaning is all that's needed to keep them white.
Years from now, when it's time to renew the superior protection of your Conklin roof, a simple recoat will do the job.

When the Florida Solar Energy Center decided to conduct a demonstration of the energy saings resulting from light-colored roofs, they looked for a product they believed would lower cooling costs during the hot Florida summer. The product they selected was Conklin's Benchmark roof coating. Benchmark was applied to the roofs of seven retail shops in a Cocoa, Florida strip mall. The results of the demonstration showed a 25.3% average reduction in cooling energy among the seven shops. Individual savings ranged from 13% to 48%.
