Roof letting in heat


Is there any flooring I could put up on my roof patio that would absorb some the heat so that it doesn't transfer down into my bedroom directly below it? The roof is flat and a patio. It is in direct sunlight most days.

I take it that this is a flat roof? What type of ceiling insulation do you have?
