Does dark siding make for a hot house?
Will a black/dark grey paint make my house hotter? The other big factor is that I’m planning a continuous layer of R5 insulation on top of the sheathing (and R23 between studs). Also I am planning on a rain screen (probably at least 1/4 inch). It seems like these two factors could make a difference in the dark paint NOT making my house hot?
The charcoal/black paint trend is tugging at me! Anyone have regrets after choosing dark paint? For this OR other reasons?
