Cool Coatings for Metal Roofing

Cool roofs reduce the transfer of solar heat into a building and help the building reduce energy loads, the urban heat island effect and smog all while improving occupant comfort. Metal roofing is particularly suited for cool roofing designs because metal roofing will retain 90 percent or more of its original reflective properties over its service live.

This course will help you list the benefits and attributes of cool roofing; describe current specifications, codes, regulations and guidelines in the United States for cool roofing; and describe the research that validates the cool roof concept.
