Cool roof over old metal surface

The owner of this turn-of-the-previous-century home located outside NYC has converted their vintage metal surface to a cool roof. According to the NY Times article on 7/30 they will save over 20% during the summer months plus contribute to the movement to save our planet.

“Studies show that white roofs reduce air-conditioning costs by 20 percent or more in hot, sunny weather. Lower energy consumption also means fewer of the carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to global warming.
What is more, a white roof can cost as little as 15 percent more than its dark counterpart, depending on the materials used, while slashing electricity bills.”

As a contractor for cool roofing and vintage tin restoration work, we have performed two projects like this one thus far this year
