Top 5 Factors that Affect the Price of Your Next Roofing Project
It’s rarely a desired upgrade; your home needs a new roof or needs repaired. Here’s what you need to know about the factors that will determine the cost your repair or installation.
The more roof, the more materials that will likely be needed. This factor may not be as relevant on a roofing repair as it is on a reroofing project. For a reroofing project the size of the roof is calculated to obtain the exact square footage.
If you own a home or building in Phoenix, AZ you should consider a COOL ROOF.
What is a Cool Roof?
My last article was about a newly invented material that is designed so well it will keep your roof cooler than the outside temperature. This was my inspiration for taking a quick second to explain what a Cool Roof is, and why it’s relevant for us here in the Valley of the Sun.
Phoenix, AZ is hot.
Anytime I come across roofing material that will lessen the effects of the Arizona sun it like to check it out.
Recently, I read a report about a new roofing material that will actually keep the roof cooler than the air outside around it.
I found it hard to believe; 110° outside, and somehow, the roof is cooler.
Roofs heat up quick under the AZ sun. Even roofs with reflective white still see a heat-up of about 10°; you can only imagine how much hotter a darker roof will get. The hotter your roof, the harder your AC unit is working to keep your home at temperature.
New Roofing Material Can Keep Your AZ Home Cooler
This new roofing material was founded by scientists in Australia. It boasts keeping a roof up to 11° cooler than even the best cooling roofing materials on the market today.
It’s a shame that this roofing material has yet to be developed – but what a game changer it would be.
Not only for residential roofing, but for commercial buildings. It was reported that if commercial buildings were coated in this new roofing material, that the heat that radiates from buildings, could be reduced by more than a few degrees – meaning, instead of it being 100° at night it could actually be 95°. Now, if only we could figure out a cost effective method to address the heat-retention from our blacktop streets.
