Benefits of Cold Roofing in NYC

Here’s a look at some of the benefits of cold roofing and  why it is a go-to option for homeowners

Energy Efficiency Advantages

Cold roofing systems, such as those using  reflective materials or increased insulation, contribute significantly to energy efficiency by:

  • Reducing Heat Loss: These systems help prevent heat from escaping during winter, keeping indoor spaces warmer and reducing the need for constant heating.
  • Reflecting Solar Radiation: Reflective materials used in cold roofing systems deflect sunlight,
  • reducing heat absorption during summer months and lessening the load on air conditioning systems.
  • Lowering Energy Bills: By maintaining more stable indoor temperatures, these roofs can lead to reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills throughout the year.
Prevention of Ice Dams and Leaks

Cold roofing systems are designed to mitigate issues caused by ice dams and leaks, especially prevalent in colder climates:

  • Ice Dam Prevention: These systems prevent the formation of ice dams by ensuring proper insulation and ventilation, minimizing temperature differences on the roof surface.
  • Reduced Leak Risks: Properly installed cold roofing systems reduce the likelihood of leaks caused by melting snow or ice infiltration, preserving the structural integrity of the building.
Longevity of Roofing Materials in Cold Weather

Cold roofing systems are engineered to withstand harsh cold weather conditions, offering:

  • Durability: Materials used in cold roofing systems are often selected for their ability to withstand extreme temperature variations without compromising their integrity.
  • Resistance to Extreme Weather: These systems are designed to resist damage from freezing temperatures, snow loads, and moisture, resulting in longer-lasting roofs compared to traditional systems.

Types of Cold Roofing Systems We Offer

Here are some types of cold roofing systems  we offer at ABC Roofing and Waterproofing

Membrane Roofing Systems

  • TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): We have single-ply membranes available that offer excellent resistance to temperature extremes, UV radiation, and chemical exposure.

    EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer):  We also have a flexible rubber-like membrane suitable for low-slope roofs, and known for its durability and weather resistance.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

We have multi-layered asphalt-based roofing membranes modified with polymers and provide enhanced flexibility and resilience against temperature fluctuations.

  • Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Roofing: It is applied as a liquid that expands into a foam, creating a seamless, insulating layer that adheres to various roofing materials. It offers excellent insulation and can address irregular roof shapes.
  • Metal Roofing: We have standing seam metal roofs or metal panels coated with reflective finishes that prevent heat absorption, ideal for reducing energy costs and resisting snow accumulation.
  • Green Roof Systems: We have vegetative roofs consisting of living plants and vegetation atop a waterproof membrane. It provides natural insulation, reduces stormwater runoff, and offers additional environmental benefits.

Insulated Roofing Systems

We use rigid insulation boards or foam boards installed below the roofing material to provide enhanced thermal resistance, reducing heat loss and preventing ice dams.

  • Asphalt Shingle Roofs with Cold Climate Installation Techniques: Our traditional asphalt shingle roofing can be installed using cold climate techniques that incorporate proper ventilation and ice and water barriers to mitigate weather-related issues.
  • Solar Reflective Roof Coatings: We can also apply coatings to existing roofs to enhance reflectivity, reduce heat absorption, and improve energy efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions .

How effective are cold roofs?

  • Buildings with cold roofing use less air conditioning, save energy, and have more comfortable indoor temperatures. For example, in non-air-conditioned residential buildings, cool roofs can lower maximum indoor temperatures by 1.2–3.3°C (2.2 to 5.9°F).

What is the most important characteristic of a cold roof?

A high solar reflectance, or albedo, is the most important characteristic to understand in terms of how well a cool roof reflects heat from the sun away from a building.

What are the materials used in cold roofs?

Some common cool roof materials include membranes, shingles, coatings, stone/rock, metal, and tile with high solar reflectance. Other cool roof strategies include ballasted roofing and green roofs.

What is the construction of a cold roof?

When the insulation is fitted between the rafters/structure and the roof substrate or deck is fitted above the insulation it makes the roof a cold roof structure because the substrate is on the cold side of the insulation.

How do you insulate a cold roof?

A cold flat roof is comprised of the same elements, just insulated from the inside instead. In it, only the waterproof membrane will sit on top of the timber deck. The insulation boards will be installed within the joists of the roof, with a vapor barrier installed below them, and a plasterboard ceiling below that.
