Roofing InsulationLearn More
From the visible surface to the hidden components beneath, your roofing system functions as whole to protect your home from the elements and hold your heating and cooling in. When any one component fails, or is not up to par, it can create damaging effects for the rest of the rooftop. Our inspection evaluates the condition keeping the following things in mind: energy, moisture, materials and technology.
While just 6% of your energy loss escapes through windows and doors, your roofing system can allow up to 40% and sometimes more. To prevent this loss, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends homes in our region have at least 20” of insulation in their attic. Unfortunately, around 90% of homes fall below those standards. Without the ample supply of insulation, more of your heated air rises into the attic and can escape quickly.
If you aren't concerned about the large energy bill this could produce, consider the damage this could cause to your entire roofing system. When snow piles up on the surface of residential roofing, excess heat escaping from the attic can cause it to melt. When it reaches the cooler edges, it will again freeze causing ice dams. The heavy dams hold moisture against the rooftop and force it underneath your materials. The sheer weight can even cause your gutters to collapse.
Fortunately, we can get your roofing system back up to code. Installation is affordable, and when you see the savings on your monthly energy bill, you’ll know this service pays for itself before long.
Roofing Ventilation Learn More
With all the water vapor that a family produces in a day, the moisture has to go somewhere. Evaporation causes the moisture to rise into your attic space. Without proper roof ventilation, it gets trapped inside. This can cause your insulation to deteriorate and mold growth to thrive.To prevent this, we install technologically advanced roof ventilation. For the best balance, it operates on a 2:1 ratio with exhaust and intake to prevent failure. Installed at the eaves and ridge of your roofing system, this provides the best air flow possible.
The different materials that make up your roofing system must all be installed properly and operating well in order to get the maximum results possible. Using the best metal flashing, the recommended amount of insulation, venting with maximum air flow and properly installed residential roofing materials, you can enjoy the benefits of a roofing system that will last.
