Zappone Cool Roof

Zappone Aluminum Roofing Systems are Energy Star Compliant and Cool

A ‘cool’ roof is a roof that effectively reflects the sun’s energy from the roof surface. Cool roofs are highly reflective and emissive materials that stay cooler in the summer sun, thereby reducing energy costs, improving occupant comfort, cutting maintenance costs, increasing the life cycle of the roof, and contributing to the reduction of urban heat islands and associated smog.

Is a cool roof more cost-effective over time than traditional roofing materials?  The DOE estimates a cost premium of zero to more than $1.00 per square foot over standard metal roofing.  Cool roofing decreases cooling energy by 10 to 30 percent and may also help increase the lifespan of a roofing system.

  • Cool roofs save on electricity bills by reducing summer  air conditioning costs
  • Metal roofing has been proven to retain its solar reflective properties far better than competing cool roof products
  • Cool roofs reduce air pollution and smog formation
  • Zappone Aluminum Shingles are coated with Durapon 70 which is harder than other premium PVDF coatings..  Duropon 70 is also tough against the elements with outstanding resistance to UV rays.  It reduces the carbon footprint with cool roof pigments , has exceptional color retention and is resistant to chalking and harmful chemicals.  Dura oat complys with the Cool Roof Rating Council, Energy Star and Leed 29 standards.
