Roof Waterproofing and
Heat Reflective Top Coat Centurion


 Are you suffering with High Temperatures inside your building?

Who wants to live like that? With Comfort Group's Liquid Thermal Insulated Seamless Roof Waterproofing you can be sure of your problems being only a distant memory. This system is an effective and economical alternative to tearing off your roof and starting over.

The CL Coating System is a four step system using CL Surface Cleaner, CL Crack Filler, Comfort Living primer and ThermalProof Roof Waterproofing and Heat Reflective top coat. Used together, this system allows you to fix leaks in your existing roof, instead of replacing it. 

In fact, Comfort Living roof waterproofing Centurion coating systems are sustainable indefinitely with minimal re-coats to upgrade the coating.

The light colored coating of ThermalProof Roof Waterproofing and Heat Reflective Coating reflects up to 84 percent of the sun’s energy from your roof, compared to only five percent reflectivity for typical dark-colored roofs. The System extends the life of your roof by shielding it form those harmful rays—less shrinkage and thus fewer leaks. The high reflectivity also lowers the temperature of your roof by as much as 30 or even 50 degrees, which means less money spent cooling your building! 

ThermalProof is one of the most advanced Roof Waterproofing and Heat Reflective coatings.
Developed by Cordex Systems, a leader in its field, ThermalProof has outstanding features and will cope with even the most testing surfaces.

Cool roof projects use less energy, are cooler and more pleasant for occupants.

  • For every 5% of added reflectivity, a roof is approximately 4 degrees F cooler in direct overhead summertime sunlight.
  • Studies show that cool roofing can lower energy demand in buildings.
  • Cool roofs should last longer, because their cooler surfaces are less subject to chemical and atmospheric degradation.
  • According to the Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005, eligible contractors who construct energy efficient homes may qualify for a $2,000 tax credit starting in 2006, and homeowners may qualify for a $500 tax credit. Cool metal roofing is specifically referenced for these credits in Sections 1332 and 1333.
  • Rebates for cool roofs and other energy-savings products may be available through many local and state governments and utilities.

If you have hot summers, now is also the time to think about changing the color and reflectivity of your roof. A dark roof can get up to 180°F on a sunny, windless day. A white roof or roof coating will reflect more of the sun's heat so that your attic and your house stay cooler. Flat roofs are especially good candidates, because you can't see them from ground level.

Look for a material with a high solar reflectance (sometimes called albedo). The best ones are usually smooth and white. There are, for example, white roof coatings that can be applied over asphalt shingles and most other roofing substrates (see Table). When first applied, these can provide a solar reflectance of up to 87%, which means that only 13% of the sun's energy is being absorbed as heat. White roof coatings do weather and get dirty, however. After several years, their reflectance may go down to about 50%. This is still a significant benefit, but the degradation is worth keeping in mind.

Reflectance tests show that some roof coatings, including so-called ceramic coatings and elastomeric coatings, provide a solar reflectance of over 80%. Conventional white asphalt shingles, in contrast, typically reflect only about 25% of sunlight. This is because they are actually gray, with a rough texture and a black substrate. Premium white asphalt shingles use a whiter white granule, providing a reflectance of up to 35%.

Solar reflectance isn't the only property to look for in a roofing material. It should also have a high infrared emittance to help the roof shed heat by re-radiation. Most materials do with the notable exception of aluminum roof coatings. Aluminum will stay warmer at night, while a white roof coating will radiate more of its stored heat back to the sky. For this reason, aluminum will not perform quite as well as a white material with a similar solar reflectance.

Your options will depend on the type of roof you have and how extensive your reroofing project is. If you have a low-sloping or flat roof that can't be seen from below, you can buy solar-reflective white roofing at almost the same price as standard dark roofing. If you have a sloped roof, you probably want shingles, because they're more aesthetically pleasing. But you may have trouble finding solar-reflective asphalt shingles. You will probably need to get the more expensive white clay, concrete, or fiber cement tiles-- or painted metal shingles.

Light-colored roofs have an added advantage over dark roofs: they tend to last longer. The constant heating and cooling of a roof causes it to expand and contract, causing wear and tear on the materials. Cooler roofs are generally more durable.

Regardless of reflectance, material also affects how well the roof sheds heat. For instance, curved tiles and wood usually allow air to circulate. This helps to keep them cool. 

Radiant Barriers

If you're replacing the whole roof deck, you can easily install radiant barriers at the same time. In fact, there's a radiant barrier currently on the market that's attached to plywood. You can use it in place of standard decking, with the aluminum foil facing down into the attic. The material doesn';t cost much more than standard decking, and the installation process is the same, so there is no extra labor involved. In very hot climates this is a sensible, cost-effective, and easy retrofit.

If you are not replacing the roof deck, you can still install a radiant barrier by stapling it to the underside of the existing sheathing. However, this will be more difficult, and it is often better to put in more insulation instead. Still, if you have air conditioning ducts in your attic, the radiant barrier can help reduce air conditioning costs by cooling the attic so the ducts absorb less heat.
