How Different Roofing Materials Impact Home Temperatures #infographic

Was that cat ever on a hot tin roof? On a sunny day roofs of all kinds can get pretty dry. The resulting heat can also build up in your attic, potentially having negative impacts over time. Prepare to find out which roofing materials are the hottest and which are certainly cooler?

Then check out our infographic in the source page, How Different Roofing Materials Affect Home Temperatures.
You'll learn important temperature information on common roofing materials in this infographic including:

Shingles – Standard dark-colored shingles absorb a ton of radiation and on a sunny day they can actually top 170 ° F! Fortunately, quality manufacturers such as Owens Corning also manufacture COOL shingle options.

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

Wood Shakes – One good thing about wood is that it is a natural insulator, which means it doesn't transfer as much heat as some other roofing material. Wood shakes often encourage air to circulate 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 inexpensive and reliable option for flat or low-slope roofs, considered to be cooler than regular dark-colored shingles by more than 50°F.
