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

New Energy Star requirements for Cool Roof coatings

I was forwarded an email that originated from the Energy Star Heat Island group.  This was something I was not aware of.  I have changed the font to red for the main point of my own comments below the quoted part of the email.

 

"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…
