One critical piece for a long lasting roof is proper ventilation. By ensuring proper roof ventilation we help prevent moisture and heat buildup in your attic by making sure you have enough intake and exhaust vents in your roof. This not only leads to reduced energy usage, put can prolong the life of asphalt roofs due to heat not being able to degrade the shingles as fast. Ventilation isn't just for asphalt roofs though, we have options to choose from for tile and metal roofs as well.
This whole process can be an add-on, as we can often add more ventilation to a roof without replacing the whole roof, which has helped many customers in the past fix insulation and ventilation issues in their homes. If the heat in your attic has nowhere to go it will eventually work its way into your home.
A cool roof is a roof that reflects more sunlight and absorbs less heat than a standard roof, lowering roof temperature and releasing less heat into the environment. California has established legal requirements that come into effect when you replace your roof, because the science on this doesn't lie. We will help you choose a lighter color or more reflective shingle to help reduce the suns heat before it has a chance to penetrate your homes attic.
A cool roof decreases your need for cooling equipment during the heat of the summer by reducing the heat gain inside your home. This can equals long term energy savings as high 7% a year, simply from a reduction of your air conditioning needs. That previous 150ºF surface roof temperature could be 50ºF cooler with a cool roof. A cool roof reduces energy usage, saving you money, and will also help stabilize the temperatures in your unconditioned spaces, like the garage or the bonus room.
