Last time, we gave you a general idea why having a cool roof is a great idea. This time, we’re going to take you through one of the best products for external coating that you can apply to your home or business’ roofing. Mid South Coatings looks at REFLECT-TEC™ and why it’s worth looking into.
The problem with UV rays
When talking about heat from the sun challenging your exterior painting in Metairie, LA, we’re actually talking about UV rays. These are a specific band in the light spectrum that bring with it heat. This is easily absorbed by ordinary roofing. It’s then transferred into your home’s interior where it can heat things up quick, causing discomfort and increased spending to keep your air conditioner running.
The benefits of REFLECT-TEC
RELECT-TEC coats your roofing entirely, preventing UV rays from finding a way to breach your interiors. It does this using a Kynar Aquatec® Flourpolymer material that is advanced and reflective. This means cooler interiors and lower energy bills from relying less on your A/C.
More than that, the material also has superior resistance to dirt, mold, mildew, and other harmful substances. It is also versatile and can be applied to any number of popular roofing options—like asphalt shingles, slate, copper, tile and even rubber and metal. The color palette is also extensive for exterior painting in Lafayette, LA, leaving you spoilt for choice.
Why go for ordinary paints when you can get a coating that protects and saves you money? Mid-South Coating brings you REFLECT-TEC—the best way to achieve cool roofing for your home and business. Give us a call today, and we’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
