Your roof’s color could either make or break the look that you want your home to achieve. However, there is more to the color of your roof than its visual appeal. In fact, the color of your roof can significantly impact your roof’s service life, your home cooling, and even the environment.
Choosing a white roof over a black one, for instance, could help you save a lot from home cooling costs. Because white color reflects much of the sunlight, the surface temperature of a white-colored roof is lower than the black one. This could make your home relatively cooler, which in turn could lower your energy bills. Also, more light reflected by your white roof means it is less prone to wear out caused by the sun.
