Looking for a green roof system? Consider a FARR cool roof!

If you’re looking for an energy-efficient, green roof system, read on to learn more about FARR!


Why choose a green roof system?

Cool, green, and solar systems are good for many reasons. First, they help the environment. Second, they help with energy costs. Thirds, they help with insulation qualities to maintain temperatures inside the building and on the roof. In other words, there are a lot of benefits for both your building and the environment! So it’s no surprise these benefits have sparked a lot of interest with building owners in the last few years.


Meet Energy Efficiency Building Standards

In addition, with the passing of Title 24 in California, stringent South Coast AQMD standards, and the financial incentives given by the utilities companies, cool roofing is now the fastest-growing sector in the roofing industry. But meeting the standards for cool roofing can be a confusing endeavor. Luckily, Western Colloid is here to help!

Consider a FARR System – Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing

We create Cool Roof Systems that can make a huge difference in the heating and cooling costs of your building. Specifically, Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing (FARR) systems. The cost of upgrading or restoring your roof with this system is offset by the cost savings for your building. Additionally, your roof upgrade may qualify for government rebates, tax deductions, or write-offs.

With our Cool Roof Green Roof System you can:

  • Apply over BUR, Modified Bitumen, Single Ply, Spray Foam and Metal
  • Decrease energy costs by as much as 30%
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Improve occupant comfort with the high-reflective the roof
  • Increase life cycle of the roof
  • Reduce “Heat Island” effect
  • Protect against UV degradation
  • Reduce waste added to landfills by not tearing down current roof
  • Be in compliance with the California Title 24 and USGBC LEED Requirements
  • Many systems have FM 4470 Class 1 approval, UL Class A ratings and ICC-ES evaluation
  • Meet South Coast AQMD standards, which are some of the most stringent VOC limits in the country

Furthermore, Western Colloid is proud to be an Energy Star© partner. We manufacture and test our white acrylic coatings to meet Energy Star © standards for energy efficiency and savings. In addition, we are also a CRRC (Cool Roof Ratings Council) member and our ElastaHyde coatings are listed for energy efficiency on the CRRC website.
