GAF Timberline Cool Series Roof Shingles will help keep your home cooler during the summer months. Reflective technology can reduce temperatures in your attic – which means spending less on air conditioning costs! GAF Cool Series is also an ENERGY STAR® qualified roof product. Check with your utility company as some will provide rebates for switching to ENERGY STAR® shingles. Depending on your specific property, geography, and the season, a cool roof may save you between 7-15% of total cooling costs. Cool Series Shingles use specially designed roofing granules that have greater reflectance than traditional shingles. This results in less the transfer of heat to the space below—to keep you cooler in the summer. A cool roof minimizes the solar heat gain of a building by first reflecting incoming sun rays and then by quickly re-emitting the remaining absorbed portion. As a result, the cool roof stays cooler than a traditional roof.
Not only will your cool roof lower your cooling costs, but it will be protected against unsightly algae with StainGuard® Protection. GAF Cool Roof Series are also protected by the highest possible fire rating, can withstand winds up to 130 mph, and is covered by Smart Choice® Protection.
