Cool Roofing Products & Materials.
Our highly reflective cool roofing is Title 24 compliant and only uses Energy Star rated materials which meet or exceeds the Cool Roof Rating Council standards. At Roofing Specialists of San Diego, we offer several different types of cool roofing, including asphalt shingles, clay tile, concrete tile, flat roof and low slope roofing materials, as well as roof coatings.
Certain types of residential roofing materials and commercial materials are more reflective than others. For example, single ply PVC and TPO membranes, Torch down materials, Owens Corning Cool shingles, and Boral concrete tile with cool colors are all well-known for their reflectivity. All are excellent for lowering roof temperatures and helps lower energy costs by reducing energy usage.

Cool roof coatings offer a superior reflective material for new roofing, re-roofing, and roof maintenance. Available as white, tan and gray all are very reflective and help prevent leaks form laps, cracks, seams, directional wall changes, screw heads, and roof intrusions.
