Shingles – Regular dark-colored shingles absorb lots of radiation and will easily reach 170 ° F on a sunny day! Fortunately, quality manufacturers like Owens Corning are also manufacturing COOL shingle options.

Metal – You may think metal roofs are hot but the high metal reflectivity actually helps disperse radiation away from home.

Wood Shakes – One good thing about wood is that it is a natural insulator, which means it does not emit as much heat as some other material for the roofing. Wood shakes frequently encourage air to flow around them, helping keep temperatures further down.

Natural insulators Clay & Slate-Both are similar to wood, clay and slate.
TPO Roof – Light-colored TPO Roofing is an affordable and durable solution for flat or low-slope roofing, known to be more than 50°F cooler than standard dark-colored shingle.
