What is Cool Roofing?

Cool Roofing defines a material that has enhanced properties that allow it to reflect and emit the suns radiation back to the sky instead of transferring the heat into your house. The coolness of a product is measured by the Solar Reflectivity Index, which measures solar and thermal emittance. To be considered a ‘Cool Roof’ a product must have an SRI greater than 19. The higher the value, the cooler the roof. Enviroshake composite roofing products have a Solar Reflectivity Index (SRI) Value of 22.2.
