Slide2:

The main feature of a cool roof is that it reflects more sunlight and also absorbs less heat than a traditional roof would. A cool roof is made by making use of highly reflective shingles or tiles, a special sheet covering or a reflective type of paint.

Slide3:

During a warm and sunny day, one might opt to wear light- colored clothes to keep you cool during the day. The same principle goes with cool roofs which use solar-reflective surfaces in order to maintain lower roof temperatures. Under the heat of the summer sun, a cool roof could help lower down the temperature up until 50-60°F. With lower temperature inside an establishment or house, energy costs for air conditioning will also be cheaper.

Slide4:

We all know that a new roof is indeed costly. Therefore, measures should be taken in order to extend the life of an existing roof and a cool roof can do exactly that. Making use of a cool roof has the ability to reduce the thermal shock to your roof. Thermal shock refers to the expansion and contraction of a roof when temperature heats up during the day and then cools down at night. These everyday changes are not really healthy for your roof. So, minimizing these effects will definitely be beneficial.

Slide5:

Ultraviolet radiation from the sun can heat your roofing material and cause significant drying and cracking that will lead you to the road of roof replacement. Getting a cool roof will help protect the roof from those harmful ultraviolet rays which will substantially reduce the dehydration of the roofing material and the aging process as well.

Slide6:

Beyond building benefits, cool roofs can also be beneficial for the environment because it can also reduce local air temperatures. Also, due to the reduced cooling energy use in buildings, there is decreased power plant emissions, including carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, and mercury . http://diversifiedroofing.com/
