Roof coating improves home’s energy efficiency

About a year ago, I hired a roofing contractor to make some repairs.

The contractor requested the replacement of a roofing coating.

A multilayer coating is applied over the entirety of the roof, protecting it against the elements. It creates a seal that works to prevent water from seeping into cracks as well as gaps as well as causing detriment. It stops algae as well as mildew from forming as well as deflects up to 85% of the sun’s UV rays. The roof coating is intended to add years to the life of the roof as well as reduce maintenance as well as maintenance requirements. I was a little skeptical. However, the roof coatings are available in a wide variety of materials as well as colors. The replace greatly improved the appearance of the home. I have been pleasantly surprised by the reduction in my year round bi-weekly bills. Because the roof coating adds various extra layers of protection, far less of our cooled or heated air is escaping. In the summer, the coating combats the heat of the sunlight as well as helps the indoor living space to stay cooler. There is far less demand on the air conditioning system. I’ve observed that the cooling system doesn’t need to run as long or work as hard. I’ve been able to raise the control unit setting by a couple of degrees, as well as yet every room is perfectly comfortable. In the winter, the roof coating provides important insulation. I went a step further as well as installed fresh insulation into the attic as well. I’ve observed that the attic no longer gets especially cold. Since hot air naturally migrates to cooler spaces, the combination of roofing material as well as attic insulation has lessened demands on the boiler. The lower heating as well as cooling bills should reuse the investment into the roof coating in under three years.
