Energy Efficient Shingles

Energy Efficient Shingle Installation in Westchester & Fairfield Counties

On a sunny summer day, the temperature in your attic can climb as high as 140 degrees. With so much heat collecting in the confined space of an attic, it’s no wonder that your air conditioning system has to work harder and longer to keep your home comfortable.

Attic insulation can help to slow the movement of heat into your home, but what about the roof shingles that are absorbing all that solar heat? Wouldn’t it be great if they made shingles that could reflect heat instead of absorbing it? Hold on – they can!

Energy-efficient shingles installed by the roofing experts at Double R A Construction Corp can help reduce heat in the attic and any heat going into the house, helping to keep your home cooler in the summer and your air conditioning bills lower.

    When we decided to undertake such a large renovation and repair project, we were a little worried that we had possibly taken on too much at one time, even though all the work was desperately needed. As you are aware, over the years we have had all our windows and storm doors replaced by Double R and were very satisfied with the service. After recently having our flat roof replaced twice in a period of 10 years by the original roofer, with the resulting water damage, we decided to give you a call. The workers not only had to remove the old roofs, but also had to build a sloping base for the new one. That job, along with the new seamless siding, gutters, chimney re-pointing, doors, deck and indoor ceiling repairs went extremely well. It was the little details that pulled it all together. All the workers were knowledgeable, hard working, reliable, and were able to coordinate their schedules so much of the work was going on simultaneously. We are very pleased with the quality of service your company provided and the easy accessibility of contacting you whenever we had any questions. Please feel free to show off our home to any prospective customers or use us as a reference.

Lower your cooling costs with "cool roof" technology


Quite a bit of scientific research went into the development of asphalt shingles that can help to reduce cooling costs. Building scientists focused their attention on the tiny mineral granules that come in different colors and are fused to the top surface of asphalt shingles. By applying special coatings to the granules, they discovered that they could increase two critical qualities: reflectivity and emissivity.

New cooler granules reflect about 20% of the sun’s energy, compared to standard dark roof granules that reflect just 3%. Higher emissivity also helps granules stay cooler by shedding heat instead of retaining it.


We can install a green roof in a variety of colors

Recognizing the important role that roofing material can play in energy performance, ENERGY STAR® has established performance standards for “cool” roof shingles. To take advantage of cool roof technology, make sure to use ENERGY STAR cool roof shingles. Most major shingle manufacturers have ENERGY STAR shingles available in a variety of colors or tones, as shown in the photos.
