Reader blog: how your roof affects your energy consumption.
"One of the keys to being energy-conscious is in the details around your home. This includes the type of roof you choose when building or replacing an old one. One of the best ways to have a green roof is to look into a 'cool roof when planning your next home improvement project.
"This particular type of roof is designed to absorb much less heat than a standard roof. It reflects the sunlight from the surface, which can be done several different ways--from reflective paint to reflective shingles to tiles. It might not seem extremely significant, but the installation of a cool roof can reduce the temperature of the surface by more than 50 degrees."
