Prior to specifying your fenestration products it would be to your benefit to visit the National Fenestration Rating Council’s website to see if the manufacturer has a certified u-factor and SHGC.
Depending on climate zone, roof slope, preferred material and Title 24 analysis approach, you may be required to meet specific solar reflectance and thermal emittance values.  If this is the case, you can see if your desired product meets the cool roof requirements.
For those interested in rigid insulation required to meet the R-19 Mandatory Minimum requirements in 2x6 framing you may wish to look into RMAX rigid insulation.
