IB Roof Systems employed a third party environmental consultant to evaluate the effects of our reflective membrane on carbon emissions. The report showed that the embodied carbon emissions of the raw materials, production, and transportation of IB Roof Systems white membrane will be neutralized in as little as 2 years when replacing a black roof. If a minimal rated Energy Star roof was being replaced the carbon emissions would be neutralized in as little as 5 years, leaving the owner with up to 23 years of negative carbon emissions from their IB roof.
IB Roof Systems applies a top finish to all of our membranes to help keep them cleaner longer, increasing their reflective properties, reducing energy consumption and reducing the urban heat island effect.
IB Roof Systems voluntarily submitted our white membrane to the CRRC (Cool Roof Rating Council) for a 3 year evaluation and earned one of the highest ratings for reflectivity and emissivity.
Because of the high reflective life of IB Roof Systems membrane, there are considerable energy cost saving benefits as well, lowering energy consumption and the utility bill.
Maintaining long-term high reflectivity is another way IB Roof Systems is making a difference.
