These remarkable shingles slow heat build-up for a more energy-efficient home. The Cool Color Series is manufactured using highly reflective granules that bounce back the sun's rays and more effectively release absorbed heat. They are rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) and meet initial ENERGYSTAR® performance levels.
