The Energy Star approved roof products program was enacted by The US Environmental Protection Agency & the US Department of Energy, their mission was to encourage the public to help conserve energy consumption and we applaud their efforts. The benefits are for example having your roof painted white are obvious, it saves on cooling costs by lowering demand for the electric to run your ac, saves on ac repairs since your ac systems are not under as much stress, using products like Roof Reflective Elastomeric is also important because you want it to perform as long as possible.

Fp&l representatives do not undertake the field verification process for testing roof coating products, (roof coatings must be applied for no less than a 3 year period on 3 seperate jobsites) then slit sample removals of the weathered products on jobsites listed are to be collected.
In the field testing procedures and product designs used are the responsibility of the contracting and manufacturing firms to verify the weathered samples submitted were installed previously on specific roof surfaces and the product recipe is consistent with the label designated.
The final testing is then completed by (U.L) Underwriters Laboratory to determine that the standard minimum durability and reflective characteristics are still at sufficient levels to be approved.
