Black Shingles


#1

I just had a pewter gray roof installed on my house. The color of the finished product resembles a BLACK roof.

My question is, will this black roof attract the heat and make my home warmer in the summer and cooler in the winter months?

Any opinions would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Light colors reflect heat and sunlight; whereas dark colors absorb heat and light.

There is another thread (right now on the 1st page) with info on black shingles. If it’s not on the 1st page, look around to the 2nd or 3rd.

what brand of shingles was it? i think the dark shingle thing may only play a part if you leave in a southern warm climate. (just my belief)
