Black vs. White Roofing.

Web Abstract: 
Discusses three reasons why white roofs may not always be the best selection. These are: 1) White membranes are not necessarily as durable in all climates. 2) In colder climates, the warming benefit of a black membrane is an advantage. 3) The environmental benefits of roof durability must be calculated into the effectiveness of the roof.
