    Definitely it can. Reflective roofs move heat away from the house and can lower the temperature on the roof by nearly 100 degrees. This greatly effects the amount of energy needed inside of the home for heating and cooling. 

    Lighter colored roofs also reflect more heat than traditional black roofs which can sometimes absorb heat and make it more difficult to cool your home. Metal roofs are also good for reflecting heat. Concrete roofing has a wide range of efficiency depending on its thickness and color.
