Roofing companies Austin can trust are always rolling out new roofing products for you to try.
The products themselves may be new, but the manufacturers remain the same: Trusted names like Owens Corning, GAF, and CertainTeed. These brands have been around for decades.
In the hands of roofing companies Austin residents prefer, products from these companies can extend your roof’s life by many years and improve comfort within your home.
One of the best recent innovations on the market is the cool roof shingle.
What Are Cool Roof Shingles?

These advanced shingles have become a lot more popular around Austin in recent years.
With reduced energy consumption, you’ll save money on your cooling bill. You’ll also improve the performance of the insulation and ventilation in your attic, so some benefits will extend to the cooler seasons, too. Plus, you’re doing your part for the environment by using less electricity.
