Your roof protects your home against the elements. When installed properly and maintained regularly, it can keep the heat and cold out and contribute to comfortable indoor temperatures. This reduces the strain on your heating and cooling system, which then leads to lower energy consumption and utility costs.

Good airflow in the attic ensures the space doesn’t trap warm air. As a result, no excess heat will travel down to your living spaces and affect your indoor comfort. Roof ventilation also helps prolong the lifespan of your asphalt shingles, so you can have peace of mind your home stays protected for a long time.
Attic insulation prevents the air inside your home from escaping. It also keeps outdoor air from entering your indoor spaces, making it easier for your heating and cooling system to maintain your desired temperature. With less effort needed to heat or cool your interior, you can expect energy savings all year round.
Light-colored roofs can reflect more sunlight and reduce UV absorption. This means less heat gets transferred into your living spaces, so your indoor temperature remains consistent throughout the day.
A radiant barrier is an additional layer of coating typically applied on the underside of the roof decking. It reflects heat away, reducing heat transfer from the roof to the attic. This coating is usually added when installing new roof decking.
