At PB Roofing, we offer the in-demand sustainable solutions that help bring balance to the continual advancement and urbanization of America. These are cool roof coatings, green roofs or vegetative installations and solar harvesting.
A cool roof is designed to reflect more sunlight than a conventional roof, absorbing less solar energy. This can save energy and money by reducing heat flow from the roof into the occupied space. The outlook for the future appears good for contractors using coatings. About 56% said sales would increase this year, and another 50% said they expect spray foam sales to increase, too.

Urban development has resulted in less green space and more impervious surfaces.
Finally, our expert team provides solar panel preparation for installation on commercial roofs. Most solar panels are designed to operate for 20 to 25 years. Our experienced team can help accomplish full solar installation readiness, maximizing a roof’s lifetime and a property owner’s solar investment.
