Your roof is one of your biggest weapons against high energy costs. According to GreenBuildingAlliance.org, 90% of roofs in the United States are poorly designed and built with dark, non-reflective materials that absorb rather than reflect heat.
While good insulation offers some relief, it doesn’t stop the transference of heat from the roof top to the attic. And when your attic is overheated, that excess heat will transfer into your home and make the A/C work harder than it should. Two factors impact a roof’s ability to stop this transference of heat: solar reflectance and ventilation.
