The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) tests, rates, and publishes the surface performance of all roofing products. The CRRC uses independent testing labs in several climate zones and ASTM and CRRC testing procedures to assess the solar reflectivity and thermal emissivity of new roof products and those aged three years. Their protocols are transparent and used to test both “cool” materials as well as traditional roofing products. The CRRC publishes all results on its website, as well as helpful information about incentives and codes.
