Heat Island Effect
Energy Saving Roofs are instrumental is cooling the surrounding air and reduce the temperature of hot air that hovers over cities. On a 90 degree
day, a black roof’s surface temperature is about 150 degrees, while a Energy Saving Roof’s temperature is only 90 - 95 degree.

Cool Roofs, funded by many government agencies with grants and tax refunds up to $1,500.
