Cool roof is a great upgrade for your home because it’s designed to deflect rays from the sun and keep your home cooler with less heat absorbency. Cool roofs are typically made from highly reflective materials that can be paint, sheet coverings, tiles or shingles. Structures of many types can benefit from cool roofs, but one has to take into consideration of climate factors and any other mitigating factors that can affect how the cool roof functions.
To further understand how cool roofs work, consider that standard roof materials that are non-reflective and have a high heat absorbency rate with higher temperatures resulting in increased energy costs over time.
Benefits to Consider for a Cool Roof Installation:
- Extend the life of the roof with cool roof technology
- Garages and attics that are usually hot and uncomfortable, become cooler and more tolerable
- Structure remains tolerable to cooler temperatures reducing the need for frequent use of the air conditioner
- Help decrease surrounding temperature effects
- Less power usage during peak hours thereby reducing chances of contributing to power outages
- Reduce chemical emissions and energy use
