Benefits of energy-efficient shingles

In the summer months, it’s not uncommon for New England roofs to reach temperatures of up to 150 degrees. This puts stress on your shingles, raises cooling bills and could even put your family in danger of heat exposure.

  1. Stay cool: A recent study found that if every home in California replaced its roof with a COOL roof by 2050, the state could reduce the amount of heat wave exposures by 35 million. 
  2. ROI: The average ROI of a new roof is 105%. The number grows even higher when you factor in the money saved on utility bills. 
  3. Limited lifetime warranty: Owens Corning offers a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty on COOL shingles, protecting your roof for as long as you own your home.

Our energy-efficient shingle options

Owens Corning offers a line of shingles called COOL shingles, which are specifically designed to reflect UV light and absorb less heat than standard shingles. This will help your family save on utility bills and reduce your overall carbon emissions. Not only that, roofs with lower heat absorption tend to last longer, as they are able to avoid the dryness and cracking which typically occur during the summer months.
