While summer is one of the best times of the year to go out and have fun, the heat it brings with it can be annoying and suffocating at times, especially if you’re indoors. Depending on its condition, your roofing system can allow copious amounts of heat in your home, which can make things uncomfortable for your household and affect your cooling costs for the season. Luckily, with the help of some residential roofing contractors, you can combat the dilemma of a hot roof.
In this post, Dior Construction discusses the ways you can heat-proof your roof for the summer.
A cool roof is one of the most popular ways you can heat-proof your roofing system. A cool roof can come in different forms, depending on what you choose. It can be made from a special variant of reflective paint or special heat-proof tiles and shingles. Regardless of what you choose, it will serve its goal of reflecting the sun away from your home so your roof does not heat up and therefore, prevent heat transfer into your home.
If you have plans to replace your roof this season, then a metal roof may be the heat-proof solution you need. With the right amount of factory-applied cool roof coating, some metal roofs can qualify as cool roofs if they improve the roofing system’s heat-releasing properties. To install a metal roof on your home, look no further than the residential roof repair and installation professionals of Dior Construction to get the job done.
On the other hand, if you have a green thumb and the space for it, then a green roof may be the solution for you. A green roof is basically a rooftop garden that can provide a layer of insulation to prevent solar heat gain. Aside from helping you cool down your roof in the summer, it can also help you with stormwater management and runoff during the rainy season and provide good insulation all year round.
