New Roofing Technologies

Aug 28, 2007
Imagine yourself sitting on your sofa, having a good time and then suddenly you look up and you see your roof. It looks pretty ordinary to you, unless you have an idea of the thought and the process that is put into it to make the perfect roof. The technology that is used to make roofs can seem to be very fascinating, because of the various innovations and inventions in the roof making techniques. During the 80s, the roofing techniques were limited to singular plies. The case is whole lot of different today due to the changing climatic conditions and demand for environment friendly roofs.

There is an emergence of new roofing technologies due to the varying demands of customers. People may consider alternative roofing techniques to suit their needs. It may be for making their homes look more attractive or adhering to the environment and using green rooftops. Some of the emerging roofing technologies include the following:

. Cooling roof technology: The load of heat emitted by the sun can play a huge role in the roof's cooling system. Due to this, there is an immediate rise in the temperature thereby contributing to the cooling loads. Many technologies have been developed with respect to this problem such as using reflecting paints on the roofs, using more insulation, etc. However, there was a need for a technology that would help in blocking the heat and protection from the rains as well. Keeping these demands in mind, a new technology was developed known as the NightSky. This technology takes care of all the cooling needs and successfully keeps out the rainwater from seeping through.

. Green Rooftops: This technology was developed with a view to give a building or a home a more natural and serene look. Though this technique is more traditional, the modern green roofs are attaining popularity all over the world. Due to new inventions and innovations, green roofing has become a very easy task, even for your Average Joe. This roof have a more cooling effect and adds beauty to the structure of the house. These roofs also have a longer life compared to other roofs.

. Metal Roofs: When you think about metal roofing, the first thing that comes to your mind is the unbearable noise it would make during rains. With the help of technology, metal roofs are becoming very popular, as it requires no maintenance at all. Modern metal roofs are placed over plies so that the noise is no longer a problem. Due to metal roofing, there is no problem with regards to mosses or algae during rains. Besides, even if your metal roofs become dirty, you can easily wash it with a garden hose.

. SPF roofing: SPF is an acronym for spray polyurethane foam. It is the next generation roofing that can be characterized by its advantages. This roofing has a long life and it avoids the seepage of water as this roofing involves coating of several layers. Typically, two more layers are applied on top of the SPF, i.e., the base coat and the top coat. The topmost layer is coated with elastomeric coat.

Roofing technologies are constantly evolving in order to cater to the needs of customers. There are varieties of options available to make the roofing process easier with respect to installation, safety, etc. If more emphasis is given on the installation aspect, there is more scope for the development of roofing technologies.
