As far as home roofing is concerned, we all know that some have magnificently integrated gardens in their roof but after this new study, many may turn to keeping it plain and well, white.
A study made by the researchers over at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory reportedly found that white roofs are more effective at fighting climate change, providing more economic benefits.
The study shows how those concerned with global climate may want to change to white roofs, adding to a host of other studies in the past decade that have allowed the “white roof movement” to gain momentum across the United States.
Despite their beneficial effects on the lower parts of the atmosphere, white roofs decrease the temperature difference half a mile above ground-a difference which drives cloud formation and less clouds means more sunlight reaching the Earth’s surface.
