Dark roof shingles

Post by AnthonyABobo »

Recently, I have changed the roofing of the house and installed black roof shingles.
This is how it looks.

With the light colored paint of the house, the dark roof shingles look very beautiful. But now, many of my friends are saying that dark roof shingles make the house hotter in summer months. Is it so? If so what has to be done in order to create a cooling atmosphere inside the house?
