How Cool Roof Shingles Work
A cool roof is an innovative, energy-saving product that is available for your home or business. It is a steep-slope, solar reflective asphalt roofing shingle, which contains advanced colored granules that reflect the sun's rays and can reduce a roof's temperature by as much as 20% in the summer.
With a cool roof, a new dimension is added to shingles with a richer mixture of surface granules. You get a brighter, more vibrant, more dramatic appearance and depth of color. And the natural beauty, authentic color and style shine through. Blending ecological technology and innovative performance, cool roofing is more durable than traditional shingles. The reflective technology reduces "thermal shock," the expansion and contraction of exterior building materials.
Meets Third-Party Certifications
This innovative roofing product is rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) for cool roofs and meets the California Title 24 requirements for cool steep slope roofing. Shingles may qualify for points in LEED®, NAHB® and other green building programs. All colors meet ENERGY STAR® standards for solar reflectance and thermal emissivity.
