True or false: According to an author, most cool-roof coatings today incorporate acrylic resins.


True or false: Several energy codes require specific levels of reflectance and heat resistance for cool roof coatings.


In the Million Cool Roofs Challenge, how much money will be awarded to the winning team that has demonstrated the best sustainable and transferable model for rapid deployment of cool roofs in a developing country and best meets the judging criteria?


True or false: The relative ability of a roof surface to radiate absorbed heat is called solar reflectance.

According to a recent D+D In Depth article, the use of silicone in roof coatings provides what advantage?


True or false: A recent RCI Publication concluded that cool roofing materials installed over West Coast wood deck systems have reduced the ability of these systems to be self-drying.


True or false: Acrylic coatings are the generic type used most frequently on high-end architectural metal roofing.


With specific values required in several energy codes, reflectance is an important performance property of a cool roof coating. What is another?
