Does Roof Color Really Impact Your Homes Temperature?

Does Roof Color Really Matter?

Being energy efficient is important to any homeowner so that you can cut down on the costs of running your household.  Maybe you installed new windows and doors to start your journey to becoming more eco-friendly. Or maybe you upgraded your appliances, but now you are thinking about the exterior.  Owens Corning offers what they call “cool” roofing colors that provide an energy star rating.  Does a cool roofing color really make a difference on how hot it gets inside your home?

A Package Deal.

While there is no factual data to prove that the Owens Corning cool roofing colors offer a higher energy efficiency than a warm color, there may be ways to get that desired effect.  When you choose to use their roofing materials, paired with a trusted roofer and a proper ventilation correction, your home’s energy efficiency will improve.  To make it even better, using Owens Corning blown-in attic insulation, you can actually save hundreds of dollars over a ten-year period on energy costs.


Having the blown-in attic insulation alone can help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.  The insulation not only helps provide a higher energy efficiency desired by all homeowners, but it helps to reduce moisture that can lead to mold.  For a small investment upfront, it can save you significant money in the long run.

When you need a new roof, looking at all of your options is vital, focusing on what may help improve the efficiency of your home. Using the top manufacturer of roofing materials is a step in the right direction.
