Hello, We are re-modeling a house and want to put on a galvalum roof. I prefer a dark green roof to the shiny silver for aesthetic reasons. We live on the gulf coast of Alabama with very warm temps for about 5 months out of the year. Our home is heavily shaded. I'm wondering how significant a lighter color roof would be in terms of affecting energy effeciency. I was reading another thread about certain paints such as Kynar that will produce the same energy saving benefits as unpainted roofing. I would really appreciate your feedback on this decision. Is it possible to have a dark metal roof (particularly, in the shade) provide a similar degree of energy effeciency as a silver one? Thank you in advance for your time. Andolyn

There are indeed now Kynar paints utilizing reflective pigment for increased energy efficiency even in dark colors. It will not be as reflective perhaps as mill finish but it will be better than the paints with standard pigment. You will need to find out whether your manufacturer is using these reflective paints.
