White is the coolest other than chrome- a chrome roof will stay wet all day after a morning shower and is at least 5*C cooler than white.

Only buy quality, genuine branded wrap. eBay wrap will crack and peel after a couple of years.

8*C cooler on interior surfaces.
Those differences are quite substantial
