  • 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 Roof Systems

    By choosing a cool metal roof for your next building project you will improve its sustainability and energy efficiency. MBCI offers cool metal roofing that absorbs less of the sun’s light lowering the heat that is retained by the roof panels.

    What Are Cool Metal Roofs?

    Cool Roofs use coatings with known radiative properties that are specified 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.

    Benefits of Cool Roof Systems

    The biggest advantage to choosing a cool metal roof for your building is sustainability. Make your building greener by choosing an energy efficient and cost saving cool metal roof. Other than lowering your energy bills there are some other advantages to cool metal roof systems:

    Cooling Energy Savings in Southern States- For more information on energy savings afforded by Cool Roofs, consult the Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL) Cool Roof Savings Calculator.

    Urban Heat Island Mitigation- Cool metal roofing helps Urban Heat Island Mitigation efforts. 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.
