Residential properties can make it more difficult than corporate or commercial ones to insulate. That is because insulation was never part of your property's original blueprint. In turn, it has become a huge problem when it comes to driving down utility bills -- even with timed HVAC and appliance shutdowns already in effect. However, it doesn't have to be difficult to achieve energy efficiency with your Littleton, CO property roofing.
Having cooler indoor temperature requires you to create an airtight seal around your home. True enough, having a 100% complete seal around your home is impossible and impractical -- sealing your eaves is one of the biggest reasons ice dams form during winter. However with reduced air drafts and slowed exterior temperature molecules entering your home, making it warmer or colder is easy for your HVAC unit to do.
Having Energy-Star rated roofing materials from highly-reputable manufacturers such as Certainteed, Owens-Corning, GAF, or TAMKO is one way to achieve energy-efficiency. Their materials will reflect rather than absorb incoming UV rays. Metal roof manufacturers will recommend acrylic elastomeric paint that delivers exceptional reflective capabilities to help your property save from utilities too.
Lastly, it's important to have excellent roofing maintenance, so make sure to work only with dependable roofers that have a great reputation installing, repairing, or replacing your chosen roofing materials.
While it isn't your reliable Littleton, CO roofer's job, we highly recommend getting in touch with dependable full-home maintenance services to help you determine areas you need to insulate. Sometimes, wall cracks, basement fissures, and other problems unrelated to your roof reduce your property's energy efficiency.
