Where there is likely to be ponding water, what generic type of reflective roof coating will work best and why?

Selected Answers

From Mark Baum of Self Employed on January 12, 2011:
Aliphatic polyurea are excellent for ponding water and the white is highly reflective. Most all high-pressure polyurea and polyurea hybrids are used for pond liners because they do hold up so well. They do not adsorb water. The Maryland Transit Authority has recently done this on their roofs. Silicone works too but it's not as tough as polyurea.
