There’s no denying that Texas is one of the hottest states in the USA; a financial news and commentary website, 24/7 Wall St, compiled a list of the 50 hottest cities in the country, and 17 from Texas– including Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Houston, and Lubbock – made the list. This comes as no surprise when temperatures hit an all-time high of 114°F in July of 2018.
High temperatures are certainly a downer when the heat makes your property like an oven. Your employees become unproductive and customers feel uncomfortable. Texans are dealing with the baking conditions by buying fans and investing inefficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. But with increased efforts to beat the heat come high energy bills.
How can you keep your property cool without breaking the bank? Try changing your roofing system!
The Benefits of New Roofing Systems
New roofing materials are more energy-efficient than they were a few years ago. A change in the roofing system protects you from the heat of summer and the cold of the winter. It also allows your HVAC system to work more efficiently.
New roofing systems are often designed to increase natural ventilation, significantly improving the building’s air quality and flow. A roof that promotes natural ventilation also helps prevents mold and mildew, decreasing incidents of respiratory illnesses such as asthma and allergies, and saving on costs needed to remove and prevent the mold from growing back.
Changing Your Roofing System
Whether your roof is damaged, old, or requires new materials for an upgrade on ventilation and temperature control, improvements are made either through replacement or restoration.
Replacing your roof is a major investment because of the labor and materials involved. You also have to factor in the cost of removing your existing roof.
Since you’re reusing your existing roof, restoration is usually the most environmentally friendly and financially viable option. The best starting point to determine the solution for your home is by conducting a visual inspection. Look for signs of damage, such as tears or bubbles in the roof cover, cracking seams and holes or missing tiles or shingles.
Aside from addressing the minor issues, you can also enhance your roof through insulation. Blankets, foamboards, foils, and fiberglass are common materials used to insulate.
You should also consider the use of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) that creates an air and moisture barrier around the building. Use an expert roof insulation service for optimal results.
