There's no one way to identify a rooftop.
White Roof Project takes a variety of approaches to our work with building owners, co-op boards, tenants and nonprofit operations managers. From supervising a project from start to finish - including purchasing materials and supplying volunteers - to providing simple guidance to a new group of white roofing entrepreneurs, we engage and collaborate in ways that work for residents and communities.
Our programs include: DIY, general advising, building sponsorship.

Get a little help.
Not a contractor? Getting to your roof can seem like a daunting task. Most of our projects are completed by volunteers - accountants, homeowners, college students - all novice painters. These folks have no prior construction experience, but with a little help they're white roofing in no time.
Please provide the information listed below to get advice on products and labor or to suggest a nonprofit or low-income building for our building sponsorship program. Sponsored buildings receive a free white roof.

We provide referrals to coating distributors in your area and additional suggestions on how to complete your rooftop. If you're not able to do your own labor, we can also connect you to a workforce crew or contractor in your neighborhood. Note: we seek out green products and fair labor practices. We do not have official relationships with any of the groups we recommend and are not paid for our recommendations.
