Energy Star Roof Products

Energy Star® labeled roof products are reflective roof products that lower the roof surface temperature by up to 100°F, thereby decreasing the amount of heat transferred into the building's interior.

What Is A Cool Roof

A cool roof is one that has been designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Cool roofs can be achieved by coloring, highly reflective materials or coverings.  Nearly any types of buildings can benefit from a cool roof, but consider the climate and other factors before deciding to install one. 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 thus saving energy and money by using less air conditioning.
