A cool roof has been designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Cool roofs can be made of a highly reflective type of paint, a sheet covering, or highly reflective tiles or shingles. Standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150°F or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F cooler> This means more energy savings and more money in your pocket when you spend less on air conditioning.
If you’re interested in cool roofing for your home or business, contact us at anytime for a free consultation.
