The type of roofing material you choose for your home or business can have benefits that most people don’t initially realize. If you’re looking to make changes to your roofing system, reflective roofing is a surprising but effective option for a variety of reasons. Reflective roofing comes with many added benefits in addition to providing the protection you need. If you are tired of outrageously high utility bills and uncomfortable temperatures, reflective roofing is one of the best choices for you. Read on to find out about how reflective roofing is one of the top choices for customers looking to get the most out of their investment.
Lower Utility Costs
Reflective roofing materials allow the roof to stay cool. In fact, a reflective roof can keep your home cooler than a traditional roofing shingle or coating. Reflective roofing has been known to allow for up to 50 degrees less in temperature than a traditional roofing system. The cooler your roof, the cooler your home stays and the less you will have to run your home’s cooling system. This means big savings on utility bills, which will come in handy during the long summer months in the Baltimore and Washington metro area.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, cool roofs (such as reflective roofs) reduce local air temperature and improve “indoor comfort for spaces that are not air conditioned, such as garages or covered patios.” A reflective material on the roof allows your home to have a comfortable temperature since the heating and cooling systems do not have to work as hard to get your home to your desired temperature. Additionally, when your home doesn’t have to work as hard to cool down in the summer, it is more likely to respond well to heating systems in the winter. Peak comfort is a priority for many homeowners and a reflective roofing system can help get your home or business where you would like it be.
There are many reasons why your roof may show signs of aging, but one of the biggest culprits is UV rays from the sun. Many traditional roofing materials take a beating from the sun and other elements that deplete their lifespan. Consistent sun exposure can wreak havoc on a roofing system, but reflective roofing does not break down from UV rays the way that shingles do. Because of its reflective coating, reflective roofing can reduce sun damage unlike any other material. These roofs will last longer, too. Additionally, you can get peace of mind from many suppliers since they offer up to a 40-year warranty in most cases.
