If you are building a new home or looking for ways to upgrade your current home, consider installing a cool roof.
Cool roof materials are designed to reflect heat away from your home and allow you to reduce the temperature of your roof by up to 50 degrees (F). This then reduces the amount of heat that is transferred into your home. Reduce your energy usage and save money by cutting down on cooling costs with a cool roof.
