  • Cool Roofs

    Cool Roofs use coatings with known radiative properties that are specified in order to keep the roof surface temperature lower than it would have been with uncoated or traditional roofing materials during peak sun times.

  • Cool Roofs

    Cool Roofs use coatings with known radiative properties that are specified in order to keep the roof surface temperature lower than it would have been with uncoated or traditional roofing materials during peak sun times. For specific information about the radiative properties of our colors, consult our listings in the respective databases on the CRRC and ENERGY STAR® websites.

    There are two primary benefits to Cool Roofs:

    Cooling Energy Savings in Southern Climates
    Urban Heat Island Mitigation

    For more information on energy savings afforded by Cool Roofs, consult the Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) Cool Roof Savings Calculator. For more information on Urban Heat Island mitigation, consult the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories (LBNL) Heat Island Group website.

    Cool Roofing is commonly specified in energy code or green building rating systems. Listing programs — such as the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) and ENERGY STAR®— keep records of these properties for verification and public referral.
