White Roofs

White roofs are seeming like a very good idea these days, even here in the cool Northwest. When it is 90 degrees on my outdoor thermometer at 9:30 am, as it was yesterday, my black asphalt shingles are a real bummer. Too hot to blog...

When choosing roof tile colors, I chose the darkest possible. I figured Portland has more cool weather than hot, and wanted the warmth. Given that light tiles might help cool a house in January when the owners have the heat going, I wonder what the relative energy advantages and best tile color strategies are for Portland?
