We take great pride in the fact that the thermoplastic white composites that we use to implement our WMR systems can reflect up to 90% of the sun’s UV rays and release up to 80% of solar radiation that is absorbed by your commercial or industrial compound. This is in stark contrast to an asphalt based roof that can only reflect a maximum of 20% of solar radiation. Unfortunately, this leads to over 80% of the remaining heat being trapped within the buildings bearings, which leads to increased perspiration and discomfort. As a result, commercial and industrial roofing owners are forced to increase their air conditioning use…increasing their utility bills.
In addition to being cost-effective WMR systems are durable and easy to install on many roofing surfaces. We also enjoy using WMR systems due to their wind resistance and the fact that they are virtually leak-proof and require minimal upkeep. WMR systems possess inherent cooling abilities-which lower heat and greenhouse emissions. Furthermore, Rio Blanco Roofing & Restoration believes that the high solar reflectivity that WMR systems provide can protect the roof’s membrane from thermal damage (i.e., chipping) thereby increasing the life span of your commercial or industrial roof.
We strongly recommend the use of WMR systems due to their solar reflectivity, impressive thermal emissions, environmental friendliness, energy efficiency, and cost effectiveness.
