Our building roof serves as the first line of defense against whatever the skies throw at its inhabitants—wind, rain and blazing sun — so it’s crucial for that roof to be sound and well maintained. No matter how durable the materials or how well they were installed, at some point a roof will begin to deteriorate under stress from the elements.
GOING GREEN & SAVING MONEY
Roof Repairs and Resurfacing:
The Association has been in progress of repairing the roof covering of our building using high-tech water-repellent materials. Tests of paint in outdoor conditions have shown that the surface covered with it has a lower temperature compared to adjacent surfaces. At night, the temperature difference was 50.9 °F (10.5 °C), and in direct sunlight – 40°F (4.5 °C). Thus, the use of new paint on roofs of buildings can significantly reduce their heating and significantly reduce energy costs for cooling with air conditioners, which means less emissions to the atmosphere.
The dazzling white coating, which is now covered with the roof, will allow us to save up to 22% in one month on heat insulation and heat exchange, on the capacity of cooling air conditioners. We compared the cost of our project to similar projects in La Pearla and Hidden Bay. For the same job, we have spent $530,000 less than La Pearla and $740,000 less than Hidden Bay, saving as much respectively. The costs so far on covering the light-repelling material on the roof are 30% less than the costs from seven years ago.
NO SPECIAL ASSESSMENT TO THIS PROJECT. A picture is worth a thousand words.
