What is a Cool Roof?
A cool roof reflects and emits the sun’s heat instead of transferring it to the building. “Coolness” is measured by solar reflectance and thermal emittance. Metal Roofs are durable, fire retardant and virtually maintenance-free. They reflect heat and block its transfer into the building. Research by the Florida Solar Energy Center in 1985 showed that metal absorbed 34% less heat than asphalt shingles, and homeowners switching to metal roofing reported saving up to 20% on their energy bills.
Reflective and emissive, metal roofing keeps more heat out, cools off faster and lets heat escape at night.
Cool roofs offer both immediate and long-term energy cost savings:
