Solar Reflective Paint For Flat RoofsSteven Dickinson
This roof was particularly dirty. We had to jet wash it off and then use a fungicidal wash before it was ready to paint with the solar reflective paint. Minor repairs to the asphalt were made using a liquid roofing system.
Solar reflective paint over old felt or Asphalt reduces the amount of heat on the flat roof, thus saving the roof from larger amounts of expansion. Expansion and contraction of the roof membrane are one of the biggest deterioration effects of a flat roof. Keeping up the solar paint on a flat roof is very important as it reduces the maintenance needed over the years also solar paint when applied fills the small micro-cracks and helps seal the roof.
