Going green has several great benefits that every business owner will enjoy. Not only are green choices better for the environment, but they are also a great way to reduce energy costs. Business owners who own commercial properties have an easy way to go green. All they have to do is look up!

Conklin Cool Roof Systems
There has never been an easier way to go green than with a Conklin cool roof system. The first and most notable difference in a Conklin cool roof coating is the color. Conklin roof coatings are white. The color white reflects heat. Therefore a Conklin roof system will reflect the heat from the sun away from the roof. This can have a huge impact on energy costs. It can and will lower energy costs the moment the roofing system is applied. In some cases roof temperatures can be reduced by as much as 100 degrees. Just think of how this would impact the energy costs of a business. A business that can significantly lower their energy costs will be operating in a more efficient and green manner.

A second strong benefit is that the Conklin roofing systems can extend the life of an existing roof for decades, eliminating tear-off costs and landfill disposal. A thick elastomeric roof coating is applied on top of the current roof surface after a thorough power washing with WAC II® for strong adhesion and leak-proof results.

Recognized by the EPA
Don’t take our word for it. Conklin’s cool roof systems are ENERGY STAR® compliant as recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency. The ENERGY STAR program has helped countless business owners all over the country make the green choice by highlighting products that help reduce energy consumption. Business owners, architects and contractors have come to rely on ENERGY STAR ratings to help them decide which materials would make the best choice for keeping energy costs down. Conklin’s white roofing systems are white on the outside, but they are an excellent green choice!
