COATINGSPRO ROOF COATINGS 2016 33 Tropical Roofing Products 1904 SW 31st Avenue Hallandale, FL 33009 (800) 432-2855 sales@gotropical.com Fluid Applied Roof Restoration Makes Sense. And Saves Dollars. Tropical Roofing Products is a national manufacturer of a full range of innovative solutions and system technolo- gies that effectively seal, waterproof and maintain the roof for the life of the building. We've been leading the way in Fluid Applied Roofing Solutions for over 60 years. Tropical Roofing Products offers Fluid Applied Roof Restoration Coatings and Systems for every substrate allow- ing building owners and facility managers to avoid costly, time consuming and disruptive roof tear-offs and to realize their goal of achieving long term roof performance and the lowest roof life cycle cost. One of the greatest challenges facing us all today, as individuals and as those in the roofing industry, is how to best care for the environment. As demand for recycling and re-using materials increases, providing intelligent, effective and environmentally-conscious roofing solutions grows. As a manufacturer, we constantly seek better, more environmentally friendly solutions in the R&D, manufac- turing, and performance of our Fluid-Applied Roof Restoration Systems. Roof Restoration Systems are simply more sustainable. Our Fluid-Applied Roof Restorations Systems require less labor and materials than a tear-off and re-roof approach. By "re-using" the current roof we reduce literally tons of materi- als otherwise destined for landfills. Building owners benefit by earning LEED credits when using the Tropical Roofing Products Restoration technologies. Tropical Roofing Products Energy Star-rated Cool Roof Restoration Systems have high solar reflectance certified by the Cool Roof Rating Council and compliant with California Title 24. Having a Tropical Roofing Products Cool Roof System will provide many environmental and financial benefits. According to the RCMA's Solar Reflective Coatings Council, white roof coatings can provide three key attributes to a building when installed: assistance in shedding water and keeping interi- ors dry; reduction of cooling costs for buildings with air-condi- tioning units as well as a reduction of interior temperatures in buildings with no cooling units; and the ability to protect and prolong the roof system's life cycle by reducing the stress of thermal shock associated with large changes in temperature. W hite roof coatings can help protect a roof against exces- sive temperatures by reflecting visible light and stopping ultraviolet radiation. Expansion and contraction of roofing materials, especially with metal roofs, can then lead to additional problems and ultimately can result in leaks. Applying a light-colored coating to a low-slope roof can help reflect sunlight and reduce temperatures on the surface of the roof. ese lower temperatures should extend roof life, according to the RCMA findings. e decision to restore or re-roof ultimately depends on how much useful life remains in the existing roof materials. Shortened roof life occurs as a result of thermal failure caused by high roof temperatures. Mitigating those roof tempera- tures can help prevent the need for re-roofing by maximizing the useful life of the materials. Company Profile: Tropical Roofing Products SPONSORED CONTENT
