At Certified Commercial Roofing, we are always looking for ways to help support our customers by offering quality roofing options that best fit your needs. Eco-friendly solutions for homes are becoming more popular as people look for ways to help reduce their energy consumption and their carbon footprint. One way to do this is to install a cool roof.
Cool roofs are a creative way to reduce the amount of money you spend on air conditioning by investing in a roof that absorbs less heat. A cool roof absorbs less heat because it reflects sunlight, allowing less heat to be absorbed into the home or building below. Cool roofs generally have white or light color products because lighter colors better reflect sunlight.
Texans understand the need for air conditioning on a hot summer day, and investing in a cool roof can be one way to cut down on the amount of air conditioning needed and help keep your energy costs down because of it. In places like Houston where more than half the year is spent in warmer temperatures, a cool roof can be a valuable investment because of the amount of savings you can accrue over time.
Another benefit to a cool roof is that the temperature of the roof is lower than other traditional roofing options. When a roof’s temperature is high because it is absorbing a significant amount of heat, this can cause significant wear and tear on the roof and shorten its lifespan. A cool roof in warmer climates will generally have a longer life expectancy because it will absorb less heat, helping to avoid deterioration and cracking caused by high temperatures.
Certified Commercial Roofing offers a 15-year warranty on all newly installed roofs, with two complimentary roof checks a year to ensure the roof is functioning at its best for years to come.
