To help keep your house cooler, it helps to have a cool roof, since your roof is what is in-between your house and the hot sun. This can be acheived with a Adelaide roof painting Adelaide roof restoration.
Different colours reflect heat better than others. Typically, darker colours absorb heat more and light colours reflect heat better. So if your house gets very hot during summer, it may smarter to have your Adelaide roof restoration in a lighter colour to help reflect heat.
