Is this cat ever on a roof with hot tin? All manner of sunny day roofs can get pretty dry. The resulting heat can also build up in your attic, possibly impacting negatively over time. Were you planning to find out which roofing materials are the best, and which ones are cooler?

Then check out the source page of our infographic, How Different Roofing Materials impact Home Temperatures.

In this infographic you will learn important temperature information regarding common roofing materials including:
Shingles – Regular dark-colored shingles contain one ton of radiation and can potentially reach 170 ° F on a sunny day! Thankfully, quality manufacturers like Owens Corning are now producing COOL shingle varieties.

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

Wood Shakes – One positive thing about wood is that it is a natural insulator, which means it doesn't transfer as much heat as some other material for roofing. Wood shakes also promote the movement of air around them, thereby helping to keep temperatures down.

Natural insulators Clay & Slate-Both are similar to wood, clay and slate.

TPO Roof – Light-colored TPO roofing is an affordable and durable choice for flat or low-slope roofing, considered to be more than 50°F cooler than standard dark-colored shingle.
