What is a cool roofs?

Are roofs designed to maintain a lower temperature than traditional roofs. They are light in color and reflect sunlight instead of absorbing it, which allows heat to escape.

Traditional roofing materials must be nailed down or fastened to the roof deck with metal fastenings, creating a thermal short or bridge from the conditioned building interior to the outside roof deck, which can reach temperatures of up to 180 degrees in the summer.

Spray foam roofing does not require metal fastening since the foam bonds directly to the roof deck in a continuous layer of insulation.
