Energy Efficient Roof
With energy prices on the rise, many homeowners are looking at earth-friendly and energy efficient options to lower their monthly utility bill. There are several different options for installing an energy efficient roof. First, choosing a lighter color roofing material can help reflect more of the sun’s rays and heat. With more heat being reflected, your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard. Some homeowners are painting their existing roof white to assist in this process. There are also several highly reflective coatings we can apply to reflect up to 90% of sunlight.
If you live in a city where square footage is expensive and sought-after, adding a rooftop patio may be a fantastic investment. While this can be rather pricey, the process is much easier if you have a flat roof. Keep in mind local codes that may limit the size or weight that you can have on top of your roof. A licensed and experienced roofing contractor can help you make the determination if your roof is fit for a patio, what local regulations may restrict you from doing, and how to plan for making your rooftop patio dreams a reality.
