Firestone presents the best solution to enjoy the advantages of a reflective cool roof in a modified bitumen system: UltraWhite Modified Bitumen Cap Sheet. UltraWhite granules are factory applied, eliminating the need for labor-intensive liquid coatings after installation. The highly-reflective surface keeps rooftops cooler, helping to reduce heat-island affect and permitting heating and cooling systems to work more efficiently. UltraWhite is extremely durable, resistant to puncture and hail and foot traffic. UltraWhite reflectivity is rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council programs and can help achieve LEED® points. UltraWhite is the only highly-reflective mod-bit cap sheet covered by the 20-year Firestone Red Shield® Warranty.
