Best Roofing Choices for our Hot/Humid Texas Climate

I just saw this free article from the Journal of Light Construction archives that’s free to download about Cool Roofs.  As you may know, I’m a big fan of Galvalume metal roofs and this article has some great research to backup my favorite roofing choice.  It also has some good info on Radiant Barriers, Tile Roofs, and Insulation/Venting issues.  Perfect article for our hot/humid climate!  You can find it here or here.
  The photo is a Barley & Pfeiffer Architects designed home I built a few years ago. You can see the Galvalume roof really shedding the sun on a hot summer day.  Also notice the deep overhangs and awnings over windows to shade the interior and the side walls of the house.  Their team really does an amazing job of designing for our climate.
