White Roofs

Should you consider white roofing?

White roofing is becoming a popular alternative to the traditional black roof because of its ability to reflect the sun’s rays. It’s been known to reflect as much as 90% of sunlight and thermally emit 100% of heat.  Because of this, buildings are cooler and use less energy, especially during the summer months when you’re using your air conditioning. For residences concerned about climate change, white roofing is also an EPA-approved method of improving “heat islands” because it reduces energy use, and reduces air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
