Your choice of roofing material can have an impact on how much light and heat your house absorbs, affecting the interior temperature.
Roofs are essential parts of our houses for many reasons. Primarily, roofs protect us and everyone we love and live underneath it. Furthermore, roofs have an impact on the aesthetic beauty of our houses, as well as being able to regulate the temperature inside it.

Types of Materials Affecting Temperature
Considering the weather people is exposed to in Calgary, Fortress Roofing recommends installing roofs with the following materials:
The most popular roofing material used in the United States. It has relatively low reflective properties, whatever color shingles you use. This means that heat is transferred from your roof to the inside of your attic, helping to warm your home in the winter.
Unlike asphalt roofs, metal roofs have high reflective properties. Even metal roofs that are painted a dark color reflect the majority of the sun’s rays, keeping your attic a more even temperature, both in summer and winter.
Another newer roof product is rubber and polymer flat roof materials that have changed this type of roof from a homeowner’s nightmare to a secure and watertight barrier. Are available in light or darker colors. This material has high reflective properties, and color choice can significantly affect the heat transfer to the top of your home.
