What types of shingles absorb the most heat?

When shingles absorb heat, that heat often transferred into the attic and, if the home is not air sealed, into the living space. Asphalt shingles absorb the most heat as they are dark in color. The asphalt itself traps heat as well. Metal shingles, clay tiles, slate tiles and wood shingles are considered to be cool roofs, meaning they do not soak up as much heat.
