A cool roof can reflect sunlight and cools itself by emitting the radiation to its surroundings. Isn’t that cool? The roof literally reduces the amount of heat. Two basic characteristics of the roof are solar reflectance and thermal emittance. It is like wearing a white t-shirt on a hot day, it reflects more sunlight and absorb the heat.

 Benefits
  • reducing energy use – as a building stays cooler, it uses less energy for air conditioning
  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution
  • improving human’s health and make them feel comfortable – cool roofs prevent heat-related illnesses and deaths
  • extending roof life and lowering roof maintenance costs
