Over the years roofing technology, like everything else, has advanced a great deal. Unfortunately, the average homeowner isn’t aware of the new roofing options available to them. In addition, most homeowners in America have no idea how important their roof is, so they try to spend as little as possible. Much of the new technology is readily available and can be installed by any professional, like the experts at Mill Creek Roofing. Owner Cody Darilek, a professional Cypress roofer, takes pride in their ability to offer homeowners the very latest in roofing technology.
In this article, we’ll look at the latest roofing technologies in the world of roofing. Technological advances offer better protection from the elements, better insulation, and many last longer than traditional roofing materials.
Roofing Technology that Keeps Your Home Cool
Around the globe, countries, cities, and towns are experiencing unprecedented heat. That’s why it is getting harder for homeowners to maintain adequate temperatures in their homes. That’s where Cool Roofs can help. Cool Roofs are designed to reflect more sunlight so that they absorb far less heat compared to conventional roofs and that consequently lowers the temperature inside the home. They can be made of various reflective materials, such as tiles, shingles and even reflective paint. In many places, a traditional roof can reach temperatures of 150 degrees F or more. Cool Roofs can lower that temperature by up to 50 degrees, which results in both energy and financial savings due to less usage and strain on the air conditioning unit. In summary, Cool Roofs keep your home cooler and help you save on energy costs, which continue to rise. You’ll not have to run the air-conditioning as much, which is another win for homeowners. Cool Roofs are not difficult to install which means that any professional roofing contractor can install it for you.
PVC Roofing Material
Who would have thought that Polyvinyl chloride or PVC and thermoplastic polyolefin would make great roofing material? Apparently, it does, and it is the perfect roof for newer homes. Also known as flat roofs, not only do they look good, but it waterproofs the roof in a way, unlike any other material.
Many professional roofers have started to recommend flat roofs because they protect the home during extreme weather. You don’t have to worry about leaks, the build-up of mold, or spending money on preventive repairs. If you think that a PVC roof is something that could be beneficial for your home, consult a professional roofing company for their expertise. While these roofs can be beneficial for many, there are certain climates and building designs that work better with other materials. A professional roofing company will know the best material for your home and climate.
Fire-Proof Roofing Material
Many roofing companies have stated that there is a high demand for fire-proof roofing material, especially those who have had an encounter with fires. The latest fire-proof roofing material can be highly beneficial to any home. Made mostly from slates, tiles, and asphalt shingles, the materials are non-combustible and easy to install.
Even if it does not protect your home from forest fires, for instance, it will still prevent a great deal of damage. Some newer materials on the horizon use volcanic rock, but that technology is still in its infancy. Our recommendation is to consult a professional, trusted roofing company that has been in business for years, has excellent customer reviews, and has experience and expertise with different roofing materials.
Roof Insulating Materials
Many professional roofers have not started to use woven glass fiber to add an insulating layer to the roof. But the big difference maker is a new product termed Polymeric Foam.
Roofers that have been using this new material claim that it’s very easy to use. The foam can be sprayed on the roof, and it sets within seconds. It can fill gaps and cracks, ensuring that there are no leaks. Perhaps the biggest selling point is that the material is cost-effective and helps to maintain the temperature inside the home. More and more roofing companies are offering Polymeric Foam as an added insulation feature for any roof.
