Types of Roofs
You can keep your home cooler during the summer without having to overwork your air conditioning unit, therefore saving you costs on energy. Although the initial price of an energy efficient roof can be a bit higher than traditional roofs, it pays for itself tenfold by reducing the cost of your energy bills.
- Cool roofs: This roof is designed to reflect heat and UV rays. Traditional roofing materials absorb more than half of the heat from the sun. On the other hand, the cool roofing system reflects more than 65% of the energy coming from the sun, therefore keeping your home cooler in the summer.
- Low-Sloped Roofs: These are typically found on commercial buildings and multifamily homes. They have the ability to be more energy efficient by applying a single-ply membrane or a cool coating. Cool coating has the consistency of thick paint an can be applied to already established roofing systems. Additional benefits include durability, improved adhesion, and the ability to self wash during rain showers.
- Steep Sloped Roofs: These are typically found on residential homes. Painted metal and tiles are usual types of cool roofing systems used for steep sloped roofs. Depending on the color, cool colored tiles (colors like white or tan), has the ability of reflecting of as much as 70% of solar energy. Cool colored metal, which is more durable, has pigments that can reflect as much as 90%.
