FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

 What is a “cool roof”?

A roof that strongly reflects visible, infrared and UV rays of the sun, dramatically reducing the temperature of the roof.  Lower roof temperatures reduce air conditioning costs and minimize deterioration from exposure to the elements and heat related expansion and contraction problems.  Cool roofs also lower the heat transfer from the roof to the air, reducing the urban heat island effect.

What are the benefits of installing a cool roof?

Extended life of the current roof membrane/surface, improved energy savings, easy maintenance, and minimal business interruption during application.

Does Inland Coatings offer warranties?

Yes.  Inland has warranties available for a variety of commercial and industrial roof types.  5 year limited product and 10 year limited product or system (product and labor) warranties are listed on our resource tab.

What type of surface preparation is required prior to coating my roof?

Power washing is normally adequate to remove dirt and other loose debris.  Any material that is poorly adhered or in bad condition should be scraped off or mechanically removed and the surface should be completely dry prior to any product applications.

Do you need primers?

No, Inland Coatings products do not require primers.
