  • Solar reflective roof – the high solar reflectance helps the roof to beat back the direct sunlight and bring it back to the environment. Thanks to it, your house will be cool enough during summer season and the need of air conditioner will be reduced to minimum.

  • Picking up the colour of roof – the colour of the roof is also important, if you want to save some money from energy usage at home. For instance, light-coloured roofs are recommended for areas with a warm climate. These types of roof won’t attract too much sunlight and the premises inside the house will remain cool. However, places, where it is cold, should be better full of houses with dark and mostly black roofs. They will attract the sun and the houses will be warm enough.

  • Material, however, is the essential during the roofing selection – metal protects the roof to let the sunlight and the heat to enter the house. Clay and concrete are the most expensive materials, when it comes to building and installing the roof. Though, they are the most efficient materials for all kinds of climate. They keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter. New photovoltaic (PV) cell, on the other side, is a revolutionary material that creates its own energy for the house.
