These shingles have specially designed roofing granules that have greater reflective properties than traditional shingles. This help keeps heat out of your attic and keeps you cooler all summer long. Additionally, the Timberline® Cool Series® Shingles are made with GAF’s patented StainGuard® algae protection!
How do they work? The cool roof minimizes the solar heat gain of a building by first reflecting incoming sun rays and then quickly re-emitting the remaining absorbed portion. What’s more attractive for home and office owners, these Oklahoma roofs can be cool roofs without having to use white granules! The granules actually reflect the light to lower the roof temperature and help you feel cool.
