Shingles – Regular dark-colored shingles absorb a lot of radiation and on a sunny day they will easily reach 170 ° F! Fortunately, quality manufacturers such as Owens Corning also produce COOL shingle options.

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

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

Clay & Slate-Both natural insulators are like wood, clay and slate.

TPO Roof – Light-colored TPO roofing is an affordable and durable solution for flat or low-slope roofs, known to be cooler than standard dark-colored shingles by more than 50°F.
