Save Energy and Money with “Cool Series” Roofing Shingles Northwest Roofing Contractors
Thanks to the reflective nature of the Cool Series Shingles, part of the heat radiating from the sun gets reflected, reducing the heat in the attic, and heat going into the house. It may translate into substantial savings in air conditioning bills.
Cool roofs may save residents an avg. 7-15%** of total cooling costs, depending on geography, structure, and climate. In warmer climates, cooling-cost savings may be greater year round.
A cool roof minimizes the solar heat gain of a building by first reflecting incoming sun rays and then by quickly re-emitting the remaining absorbed portion. As a result, the cool roof stays cooler than a traditional roof of similar construction.

How Energy Efficient Shingles Work
Roofing granules give a shingle its unique look and tone. But traditionally, only have been considered “cool” by energy-saving standards.
Not any more. Thanks to our cool shingle process, using special proprietary cool granules with unique formulas, our shingles are highly reflective. These special granules reflect light to lower the roof temperature to help you feel cool. A few benefits are listed below.
