We’ve seen brutal heat across East Texas this summer. According to the Federal Trade Commission, almost half of the money that households spend on utility bills goes toward heating and cooling costs. Energy costs are literally soaring through the roof. But how can your roof stop those costs from soaring? Your roof is the first, and best, line of defense against summer heat and winter chill. An old, inefficient, poorly insulated roof will let in too much heat during the summer, resulting in massive air conditioning bills. During the winter, it will let too much heat escape, leading to astronomical heating costs.
Investing in the roof over your head now will save you a ton on energy costs in the long run. A new, energy-efficient roof will keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Stonewater Roofing uses the latest, energy-efficient materials available to be able to construct a roof that can withstand the constant bombardment of ultraviolet radiation from the sun; something we are all too familiar with here in East Texas. The materials and products we have to offer have a high solar reflectance, meaning they reflect the sun’s energy back into the environment instead of absorbing it into your attic and home. High solar reflectance materials can reduce the temperature on the surface of your roof by as much as 30 percent. The result is less heat absorbed into your home.
