Video Transcript Goes Here: My name is JP McElveen you I’m the executive director of roofing operations for Semper Solaris Some customers may be interested to know about the technological advances within the roofing industry One of which is the movement towards using cool roofs or cool roofing products In fact most building jurisdictions in California are requiring or mandating that you install it cool So what is a cool requirements for a cool roof are generally based on the solar reflective index or? SRO SSRI value gives an indication of how hot a material is likely to become in the Sun So the lower the s RI the hotter, it’s likely to become the higher the s RI the more reflective or cooler It would become in the Sun So when talking about cool roofs Goes without saying that color is important a lighter roof is gonna be cooler than say a darker in fact According to the Department of Energy’s website a black booth will be about 50 degrees Hotter than a cooler which may only reach 100 degrees in insertion with that being said Through the development of different types of granules that are embedded in the roof shingles themselves We’re actually able to make darker roofs that meet the solar reflective index s RI values required to be cool roofs That means now you can get your black roofs sure brown roots dark gray and they can still meet that soil reflective index Needed to be installed in your building jurisdiction.
Why is this important? Well some benefits of using a cool roof or a cool roof product are Less heat is going to transfer inside the building This also reduces the amount of heat that’s transferred to the outside air, which has a positive effect on our environment a cooler roof Ultimately means a more energy-efficient home for you and your family another major shift in the roofing industry has been the movement towards using synthetic on It’s the underlayment is the water barrier that goes below the shingles or the top It’s really that last line of defense should water get underneath the shingles or the time traditionally This has been an organic material So it’s been a felt paper or a fabric that’s soaked in asphalt more and more nowadays manufacturers and roofing installers alike are moving towards a high-performance synthetic products some of the benefits of this advancement in technology are Synthetic underlayment tend to lay flatter for a more uniform working surface and more consistent final product synthetic underlayment have a longer exposed lifespan most traditional felts will carry a Three-month exposure before they need to be replaced Synthetic underlayment has a six month exposure particularly beneficial in new construction Applications where a roof may have underlayment on it roof paper For several months before the builders are ready to have the actual final roofing product installed a synthetic underlayment is lighter than a traditional Underland which means it’s easier for the guys who are installing to work with the products probably most important is that Synthetics are produced by the shingle manufacturers today.
Meaning we’re not using a third party product We’re not using something that doesn’t jive with their warranties.
