What is a Cool Roof?

A Cool Roof is more than just a roof painted white. To be a Cool Roof, a roof must be treated with a specialized coating material that is lightly colored and has two unique properties: high solar reflectivity and high infrared emissivity.

About NYC °CoolRoofs

The NYC °CoolRoofs initiative encourages building owners to cool their rooftops by applying a reflective white coating that reduces energy use, cooling costs and carbon emissions. The program supports New York City's goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent by 2030, as outlined in PlaNYC - the City's comprehensive sustainability plan.
