Energy-efficient shingles help reduce your heating and cooling costs while mitigating the effect of ‘Urban Heat Islands.’

I understand saving money. But what is an ‘Urban Heat Island?’

Have you ever noticed that it’s hotter in cities and larger towns than it is in rural areas? Especially in the evenings? There’s a reason for this. An ‘Urban Heat Island,’ is the term for urban or metropolitan areas that are significantly warmer than their surrounding rural areas due to human activity and building practices. This is in large part due to traditional roofing materials that hold heat in and towards the buildings. Remember science class? Dark colors absorb heat and light reflects it away.

Historically, few home builders or homeowners opted for energy-efficient cool roofs because it used to require the roof to be white. But that’s not the case anymore. Thanks to military research and technology, there are now roofing materials that are darker in color (what homeowners typically prefer), but that also reflect the majority of the sun’s radiation and heat. Heating bills may not change much, but the reduction in cooling costs, especially in climates with hot summers, makes up the difference. These new roofing materials come Energy Star® Rated.

Energy Star® Rated? I thought that was for home appliances like dryers and refrigerators?

Not anymore. Not only do appliances carry Energy Star® Ratings, but windows and shingles do as well! Energy Star® recognizes cool roof products that reduce peak cooling demand by 10% to 15%. To obtain the Energy Star® label, steep-slope products must have an initial solar reflectance of at least 0.25. Three years after installation, the roofing product must achieve a solar reflectance of 0.15 under normal conditions.

AmeriPro Roofing is proud to partner with Owens Corning, who now offer a full line of Energy Star® rated shingles that come in a variety of solar-reflecting colors that bounce back the sun’s rays, which means your roof stays cooler and you spend less money on cooling your house.

What Our Customers

Are Saying

“First of all, I couldn’t be happier with all the professionals at AmeriPro Roofing. For example, from the time they gave me my roofing estimate, to the way they explained every single thing they were going to do. As a result, their service was outstanding. And, the repairs went exactly as they promised, plus they stayed on schedule and answered every question I had. And I had a lot of them. Finally, they treated me like a human being, instead of a person who filled their quota.”

“We wanted to improve the look of our home with new siding. But, we had no clue what colors to use, or what materials would work best. Our contact at AmeriPro Roofing was so patient. And above all, treated us with respect and kindness. We had a lot of questions. And we got the right answers every time. I was nervous about this project, but the vinyl siding is beautiful, and the color we chose just pops like you wouldn’t believe. In conclusion, the service was worth every penny.”

“Our roof needed replacing, and I had called a bunch of other roofers near me. In the first place, some were really pushy. And others treated me like I was stupid. In contrast, the guy at AmeriPro Roofing was a total pro. In fact, he was a straight shooter, listened before he talked, and told me he couldn’t give me any kind of estimate until he did an inspection. After the free inspection, I was sold, and I figure to get another 30 years out of this brand-new roof. In any event, I couldn’t be happier with AmeriPro Roofing.”
