Solar Guard Coating & Waterproofing

Solar Guard Coatings Can Bring New Life To Your Roof, And Rescue Your Energy Costs

As energy costs rise faster than paychecks, residential and commercial property owners all over Orange County are searching for ways to cut those costs without spending a ton of money. One of those ways is through the application of solar guard paint to an existing roof. While the installation process isn’t too complicated, it’s best to have an experienced roofer like Horizon apply it. This way, we can give your existing roof a thorough inspection, making sure that the existing structure is in good condition, and doesn’t require any small repairs. We also have the knowhow to make sure that the surface is deeply power cleaned and dried before adding the new solar guard paint.

 

Solar Guard Coatings Are Great For Those Sun Filled Orange County Days

Southern California is known for day after day of golden sunshine. While it makes for great days at the beach, it can also raise the temperature of your roofing system. All that trapped heat forms a blanket, meaning you’ll need to crank up your air conditioning, resulting in higher electricity costs. Even if you don’t have air, no one lies to sit in a hot, stifling home or office. If your roof is absorbing a great deal of sunlight,  It gets much more difficult to cool down by just opening windows or using fans. For residential structures, that means hot days and sweaty nights. For businesses it means uncomfortable customers who might find a cooler place to shop.

Solar Guard coating is an inexpensive way to reduce the impact of the sun’s powerful rays. When the roof temperature rise is limited to just a bit above the ambient temperature, you’ll find that our often agreeable orange county weather is enough to keep you cool and comfortable all summer long. 

 

Waterproofing Is Just As Important In Orange, CA As It Is In Rainier Areas

Though we treasure our days of sunshine, and love the fact that we usually don’t have to contend with rain for much of the year, it can still happen, and it can still cause big problems for property owners in Orange and the surrounding area.

Solar Guard paint forms an impenetrable barrier to water damage, mold, mildew and all the other problems that come when moisture pools leak through a roofing system. Expert installation by experienced roofers like Horizon means the solar guard paint will be applied thick and uniform, and function perfectly for years to come.

Regular years can bring strong winter storms from the pacific.

Case Study: Solar Guard Coating & Waterproofing in Orange, CA

These types of roofs are preferred over other systems because of longer life cycles, greater installation safety in high pedestrian traffic areas, cost-effectiveness, renewability and ease of maintenance.

Every roofing system has three basic components –waterproofing, reinforcement, and reflectivity. The combined performance of these components dictates reliability and longevity for any roofing system.

Cool-Roof systems employ the highest performing product in each category to provide the longest lasting commercial roofing systems available. Cool-Roofs are not subjected to the extreme punishment from daily thermo-cycling that other roofing systems are exposed to. In fact, a Cool-Roof cannot heat to a temperature more than 15% higher than the ambient temperature. Cool-Roof systems could be sustained well beyond the useful life of the building, and in many cases they have.

In the photo below, you see we have power washed the roof with eco-friendly detergent to get a clean surface for a proper bond.
