  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


Healthier Environment with Cool Roofs

What sets cool roofing in Zionsville, IN, apart from traditional roofing is its highly reflective surface. This is due to specially-coated shingles or sheets. Cool roofing is not a new technology, as  it has been keeping homes cozy since ancient Greece.

Cool Roofs

Solar Reflectance and Thermal Resistance are two properties that measure its ability to reflect heat. They can range from zero to one, with a higher number meaning better capability to keep your home livable. Additionally, these roofs have a positive impact on the environment.

While cool roofs tend to be white, there are other off-color options available that feature highly reflective surfaces. Universal Roofing and Exteriors offers cool roofs that have these features and benefits:


We offer cool roofs that will promote a healthier environment. They help reduce the “Urban Heat Island Effect” that occurs when a city is hotter than surrounding rural areas due to dark surfaces. At the same time, they lessen urban air temperature by decreasing the amount of heat they emit in the atmosphere.

This slows down the formation of ground level ozone, which can put your health at risk. Furthermore, they help increase property comfort levels leading to less use of HVAC units, which increases greenhouse gas emission.

Energy Saving

As a GAF® Master Elite roofer in Zionsville, IN, we offer GAF Timberline® Cool Series® Energy-Saving Shingleroofs that will help reduce your energy costs.
