Not only is Gardner-Gibson a leader in roofing materials, it also has a ton of highly rated products in the CRRC Rated Products Directory. The CRRC, or Cool Roof Rating Council, was created in 1998 and is incorporated as a non-profit educational organization. Its purpose is to develop accurate and credible radiative energy performance rating systems for roof surfaces and to communicate that information to all interested parties, like you.
Products seeking CRRC Rated Product credentials are subject to tests by accreditedlaboratories, all approved by the CRRC. Tests at these facilities include solar reflectance, thermal emittance, and for aged-ratings, samples are exposed for three years at the CRRC-approved Test Farm.
Information about any of these rated products is totally transparent and can be easily found through their website: http://coolroofs.org/
The Sta-Kool line of elastomeric coatings from Gardner-Gibson includes several products that have gone through this rating process. Each Sta-Kool coating provides a protective barrier that reflects the sun’s heat and destructive UV rays. Sta-Kool 780 is enhanced with silicone for improved water resistance, adhesion and life expectancy, earning the respect of Professionals and DIYers alike. Here is what some of them have to say:
Robert- “Great product, easy to apply, dries fast, sticks to any clean surface. I will usethis again over the other brands I have used in the past.” http://www.homedepot.com/p/Gardner-5-Gal-Sta-Kool-780-Cool-Roof-Elastomeric-Coating-SK-7805/202057691
Larry W, FL- “Best investment ever!”
Goatman, AZ- “Great roof sealer, goes on easy with paint roller.” http://www.homedepot.com/p/Gardner-5-Gal-Sta-Kool-780-Cool-Roof-Elastomeric-Coating-SK-7805/202057691
While having gone through the CRRC testing is great, having earned the confidence of professionals and consumers alike is the real test of a product’s capability and performance. As you can see, Sta-Kool products have both.
