I have had melanoma and basal cell skin cancer. I'm trying to understand how UV rays react on different housing materials and colors. For example, RESIDENTIAL ROOFING & SIDING: Does the type of material and wether it's a light or dark color, give me more UV ray protection? Is there any material and/or color that absorbs the UV rays and doesn't let it go through to the next material underneath it. If it keeps absorbing the UV rays, does the degree of protection diminish? Also, if it's a material that reflects UV rays, could it reflect back into the house windows from it bouncing off of other objects outside? What about INTERIOR HOUSE PAINT? Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much.
