Cool Roof Tiles Cool roofs can help many building owners save money while protecting the environment. If you are planning a new building or replacing or restoring an existing roof, cool roofs should be considered as an energy efficiency option. Cool roof products exist for virtually every kind of roof. Just as wearing light-colored clothing can help keep a person cool on a sunny day, cool roofs use solar-reflective surfaces to maintain lower roof temperatures.
Why Use Cool Roofs
A cool roof can be desirable to a building owner for several reasons. Cool roofs canreduce energy bills by decreasing air conditioning needs, improve indoor thermal comfort for spaces that are not air conditioned, and decrease roof operating temperature, which may extend roof service life. In many cases, cool roofs cost about the same as non-cool alternatives. The energy cost savings you can realize from a cool roof depends on many factors, including local climate; the amount of insulation in your roof; how your building is used; energy prices; and the type and efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Cool roofs can also benefit the environment, and policymakers may issue cool roof regulations to provide these benefits to society. Cool roofs can reduce local air temperatures, which improves air quality and slows smog formation; reduce peak electric power demand, which can help prevent power outages; reduce power plant emissions, including carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, and mercury, by reducing cooling energy use in buildings; and reduce heat trapped in the atmosphere by reflecting more sunlight back into space, which can slow climate change.
How Cool Roofs Work
Cool roofs have surfaces that reflect sunlight and emit heat more efficiently than hot or dark roofs, keeping them cooler in the sun. In contrast, hot roofs absorb much more solar energy than cool roofs, making them hotter. Solar reflectance and thermal emittance are the two key material surface properties that determine a roof's temperature, and they each range on a scale from 0 to 1. The larger these two values are, the cooler the roof will remain in the sun.

- Prepare base mortar with cement and sand in the ratio 1:4 along with waterproofing chemical.
- The total mortar thickness should not be more than 25mm
- Keep the hand mixer ready to apply to avoid uneven surface, while laying the tile.
- Prepare cement slurry as thick paste to spread on the morter.
- Use 6mm spacer in between tiles.
- Do not use hammer for laying.
- Fill the joints with white cement, sand and waterproofing chemical or use suitable water proofing grouting materials.
- Do not use the layed area for 48hours.
