I have this concept... good for summer and winter for flat roofs.

take the used 2 liter or smaller bottles and either paint them white, or fill with white liquid and then cover your roof with them in the summer. this should cool be an insulator as well as a reflector and making use or recycling the bottles for flat roofs...

then when here in the winter remove them if you have a dark roof or have black liquid in them.

if painting them on the outside one can put a little water in them to give them a little weight.

one may be able to fill them with white paint and then let them drain out excess paint for a nice clean painting system.

another benifit to fill with white paint and drain is should be longer lasting as it is protected from scratching.

I have taken a normal piece of used white printer paper and curled it up and placed it in the bottle. this worked great.

Hi and welcome to La Paz Gringos. It's a very interesting group with some great
information and resources. The previous posters sure are correct in saying that
it's not the cost of electricity, but the type of home you have. I live in a
concrete block oven. But a couple of blocks away from my home, a really neat
house is going up made of white blocks filled with a solid concrete core that
provides R24 insulation. The builder is putting in double pane Milgard windows
and doors and an insulated roofing system (yes, I walked over and asked a lot of
questions) and says that the home will require about 1/2 the tonnage of a/c that
a regular block home requires. If I ever get to build another home, it will be
of that material. The product name is Logix. The local distributor is a
Canadian guy who also has a cabinet shop in El Centenario. (Meanwhile, I'll
just pay my electricity....)

Coated polymer stack promises to keep your roof cool in summer

Of all the scenarios you'd want to find yourself in a heatwave, being barefoot on a hot tin roof would be toward the bottom of the list. These exposed surfaces soak up sunlight to slowly but surely transform into corrugated hotplates, compounding the sweltering ambient temperatures and warming the living space below. But a team of Sydney-based scientists has developed a new material that's claimed capable of keeping a rooftop cooler than the air that surrounds it, saving energy and sweating residents in the process.

Led by Dr Angus Gentle and Professor Geoff Smith from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), the research team used a mixture of commercially available polyesters and a silver layer to build what it describes as a coated polymer stack. It says these materials could be appropriate for use on basic roofing, and could help mitigate the heating effect that can see roofs rise in temperature by as much as nine to 12 degrees Celsius.

The team says the new
