Benefits of Cool roofs
A cool roof can significantly reduce your cooling energy costs and increase your comfort level by reducing temperature fluctuations inside your home.  Average energy savings range from 7%-15% of total cooling costs.  Some other benefits include:

Reducing your utility bills associated with air conditioning

Increasing occupant comfort and avoid installing an air conditioner where there isn’t already one

Decreasing the size and prolong the life of your air conditioning system

Lowering roof maintenance costs and extend roof life, avoiding reroofing costs and reducing solid waste

Assist your home in meeting building codes

Mitigate your community's Urban Heat Island Effect

Maintain aesthetics with a roof that performs and looks good

Receive utility rebates (in some locations)

It helps achieve Green Star SA Credits.
Why a cool roof?
A cool roof is one that strongly reflects sunlight and also cools itself by efficiently emitting radiation to its surroundings. The roof literally stays cooler and reduces the amount of heat conducted to the building below. If a building does not have air conditioning, this keeps the building cooler and a more constant temperature. If a building has air conditioning, the equipment does not have to work as hard.
A high solar reflectance—or albedo—is the most important characteristic of a cool roof as it helps to reflect sunlight and heat away from a building, reducing roof temperatures. A high thermal emittance also plays a role, particularly in climates that are warm and sunny. Together, these properties help roofs to absorb less heat and stay up to 28–33°C cooler than conventional materials during peak summer weather.
