Artificial turf is gaining popularity on Sacramento’s balconies, patios and rooftop decks. It’s easy to see why; synthetic turf creates easy-to-maintain green spaces for high-rise condo owners and other urban dwellers to enjoy.
Rooftop installations are also among the first to suffer from sun damage. Without substantial shade from trees or nearby buildings, rooftop artificial turf installations can suffer a slew of issues from UVA and UVB rays. Below are four reasons why UV-protected artificial turf is essential for your rooftop deck.
It Prevents Your Artificial Turf From Fading
Your rooftop is constantly exposed to the sun’s rays. Without ultraviolet protection, the sun can break down the chemical bonds in your synthetic turf, causing its colors to fade or bleed.
By ensuring your artificial turf has heat-reflective pigments, you’ll help your rooftop oasis maintain its natural, green appearance for years to come.
Your Deck Won’t Overheat
Artificial turf works beautifully around outdoor pools and entertaining areas. Installing UV-resistant synthetic turf ensures you and your guests can comfortably enjoy these spaces, no matter how high the temperatures climb.
TigerCool products from SGW Sacramento keep your artificial grass up to 10 degrees cooler. That can be the difference between enjoying your rooftop deck and staying indoors in the hot summer months!
Avoid Yarn Splitting on Your Synthetic Grass
Unprotected sun exposure can break down the blades in your synthetic turf, causing them to fray and deteriorate in a process called yarn splitting. Yarn splitting not only makes your synthetic grass look less lifelike but becomes more brittle and rough to the touch.
UV-resistant technology protects your blades from sun damage, keeping your artificial turf deck soft and realistic.
Make Your Artificial Turf Last Longer
By preventing premature fading and degradation, UV-treated artificial turf guarantees your rooftop installation will last as long as possible.
