Roof coatings are typically used in almost every commercial roofing application. However, for homeowners, it’s somewhat of an uncharted territory. Nevertheless, if you ask your residential Fort Collins roofing company about their take on the use of coatings for home efficiency, they’ll probably have a lot to say on the matter.
The fact is that the UV radiation coming from the sun is rarely blocked entirely by most roofing systems. Most materials will allow a large portion of the heat and radiation to be absorbed and to generate a lot of heat that will accumulate the most between your walls in the summer. Roof coatings are available that can counter this effect and ensure that your home is no longer bombarded by harmful heat and electromagnetic radiation from the sun.
With your roof better protected, your attic will be in better shape and your home will no longer overheat. This means you can rest assured that your air-conditioning system can handle the temperatures in your home without overheating or using too much energy as well. Aside from your energy costs being lowered, you’ll also be able to relax about the possibility that your AC might break down over the strain and that you’d have to go out shopping for a new AC unit in the scorching summer sun.
