Environmentally friendly construction practices are becoming more than a passing trend; they are becoming a necessity for sustainable development. And in many areas, such practices are becoming legally required. One of the more important developments is the application of white elastomeric roof coatings, which have a significant impact on roof life expectancy, as well as on building temperatures... White elastomeric roof coatings are carefully designed to reflect sunlight, resulting in cooler buildings as well as reduced cooling costs. The UV light barrier also prevents the degradation of the substrate, increasing its life expectancy and minimizing the frequency of replacement. (From DOW Chemicals website.)
The U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. At Queston Construction, we share a common goal in transforming the way buildings are designed, built and operated.
The single-ply roofing systems that we professionally install can contribute toward several credits in the following LEED categories:
