Stone Roofing had the opportunity to work on the MillerCoors commercial roof project located in Irwindale California. The Irwindale MillerCoors Brewery opened in 1980 and brews up to 6 million barrels of beer a year. It is also the home to the largest solar panel installation at any U.S. brewery.
Over the course of several years a large sustainability project at all MillerCoors Breweries will include a highly reflective roof surfacing. Highly reflective Rock-It Adhesive was used as a cold applied aggregate with white marble aggregate embedded to ensure a strong, fully reflective roof. The bright white gravel surfacing combines the durability and weatherproofing aspects of gravel-surfaced roof systems. The benefits of a “cool roof” system aids in lower energy costs, reduces heat absorption, reduces carbon output and puts less strain on a building’s HVAC system.
