Commercial Industry Painting services – -licensed cool roof commercial installers
Cool Roofs have been shown to offer benefits across a range of installations including air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned low rise commercial buildings. Benefits are more direct in single storey or low rise buildings with low pitch roofs due to the higher ratio of exposed Roof area to floor area and where insulation levels are low.
SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings was founded in 1950 as the Steel Structures Painting Council, a non-profit professional society concerned with the use of coatings to protect industrial steel structures. In 1997, the name of the association was changed to The Society for Protective Coatings to better reflect the changing nature of coatings technology and the ever-expanding types of construction materials.
SSPC is the only non-profit association that is focused on the protection and preservation of concrete, steel and other industrial and marine structures and surfaces through the use of high-performance protective, marine and industrial coatings.
