An example of what an RCC can do with no R- insulation in the walls.

FYI ON VINYL SIDING

Back in 2003 I was called out to a home in Sacramento.  I was called there in the begining of summer.  The prior winter the home was painted with our RCC. I found the home was painted a medium grey.  The color of the 30-year-old vinyl siding was a light lime green before it was painted grey with our coating.  Way too dark to tint our coating to. The first 100-degree day they had, the vinyl siding warped beyond belief, like someone had taken a torch to the West and South walls.  On close…See More

The RCC Classroom (Radiant Control Coatings)

A group where energy professionals can learn about all the different energy saving aspects of RCCs.  I have worked with one particular RCC for 30 years.  I have amassed alot of information I can share.  Everyone knows, accepts and understands how RCCs work as a 'Cool Roof' coating.  However, that seems to be where the knowledge on these products different energy saving applications abruptly stops.  I hope to change that with this group. There are over 300 protective coatings out there and they…See More

"This call will provide an overview of the revised requirements for ENERGY STAR labeling of roofing products. The focus will be on the certification and verification processes. Beginning January 2011, labeling requires third- party…
