Has anyone used reflective paint to keep a shed cool? Can it be used on sheld roof felt?

I haven't used the paint, but I have used that bubble wrap foil insulation stuff on the outside of the playhouse roof, to help keep it cool in summer. It did make a bit of a difference to the amount of heat coming through the roof. I put it on last summer, and it's still there now. You just need to make sure there's plenty of ventilation so it doesn't trap heat in.
