Hi Brandon,

I am in California but have been to Yuma a few times with our Radiant Barrier Coating.  Coated the flat roof of one house.  Word of his electric bill afterwards got to the general contractor that built that tract of homes. 

 

I coated the roof and the stucco walls of the identical house next door to the first one.  This was 2 years later.  The contractor sent a rep out and saw what I on the roof and the stucco. 

 

The rep said they were having to go back on every house and fix thye stucco cracks, hundreds on each house.  They also had to patch leaks in the roofs.  They were spending over 5 grand on each one to make those warranty repairs.

 

The first house has had no leaks since.  The second house has no leaks and the electric bill almost does not exist compared to the rest of the neighbors.

 

Arizona should seriously look into requiring RCCs on new construction.
