A cool roof is one that reflects sunlight and also stays cool by efficiently dispersing radiation (heat) to the surroundings. The roof stays cooler, and so does the building below. (You wear white in the summer to reflect heat and stay cool in much the same way.)

If your building has air conditioning, it won't have to work nearly as hard with a cool roof coating. If you don't have AC, a cool roof can help keep you comfortable.
