In a study conducted by the US Department of Agriculture, it was determined that an attic space under a dark colored roof (dark gray or black) that was installed over plywood sheathing was 10 degrees warmer on a day with full sun when compared to a lighter colored roof (white or very light gray). Although it was found that there were smaller differences when dark colors were compared to the lighter colors, the study reported that the only significant difference was found with extreme dark colors compared to extreme light colors. Although this may be important to a large warehouse or industrial building, it is suggested that you focus on choosing a roof color that is aesthetically pleasing and not worry too much about how the color may impact efficiency.

However, if by chance, a huge tree is hanging above your house, it could be hazardous for your roof. You have to take action to make sure that no such risk is hovering over your house roof. Call tree service and take their help in solving the issue. If they think that the tree could be trimmed from over your house and would not cause any serious issue in future, get it trimmed.
