On a sunny summer day, heat collects in the confined space of an attic, the temperature rising as high as 140 degrees, and your air conditioning system has to work harder and longer to keep your home comfortable.
Even though attic insulation can help to slow the movement of heat into your home, it does nothing for the roof shingles that are absorbing all that solar heat. If only they made shingles that could reflect the heat instead of absorbing it. Hold on – they do!
Mallard Construction & Roofing installs energy-efficient shingles that can help reduce heat in your attic and any heat going into the house, helping to keep your home cooler in the summer and your air conditioning bills lower.

After many hours of scientific research, asphalt shingles that can help to reduce cooling costs were developed. The building scientists focused their attention on the tiny mineral granules that are fused to the top surface of asphalt shingles. They discovered that by applying special coatings to the granules, they could increase two critical qualities: reflectivity and emissivity.
The coated, cooler granules reflect about 20% of the sun’s energy, which is much better than the standard asphalt shingles that only reflect 3%. The quality of higher emissivity helps granules stay cooler by shedding heat instead of retaining it.
Roofing material plays an important role in energy performance, and because of this, ENERGY STAR® has established performance standards for “cool” roof shingles. To take advantage of cool roof technology, make sure to get the best in the business: ENERGY STAR cool roof shingles. Most major shingle manufacturers have them available in a variety of colors or tones, as shown in the photos.
