Summer is the perfect time for roof repairs and replacement. If your home or other property is old, a roof replacement is a better option for many reasons. A new roof will be trouble-free for many years to come.
Besides adding aesthetic appeal that can maximize your property’s value and appeal to buyers when it comes time to sell, a new ENERGY STAR rated reflective roof can reduce your home’s energy costs.
Roofing that reflects more of the sun’s rays can lower roof surface temperature by as much as 100° F. according to Energy Star. This significantly decreases the amount of heat transfer into a building. In the summer, it can reduce the amount of air conditioning needed by as much as 10-15 percent.
