Roofs play a big role when it comes to comfort inside your home. A wrong choice of material can make the rooms either too hot or too cold in certain seasons. If you live in a region that enjoys warmer weather, roofing materials that effectively reflect light and heat back to the atmosphere would be ideal.
While traditional roofing materials can reflect heat upward and away from your home, solar roofs can capture and store heat, and use it as an alternative energy source. The initial costs, including products and installation, are typically high. But this type of roofing is perfect for homeowners who are looking to reduce environmental impact and save on energy costs. Obviously, the solar energy capabilities of these roofs are dependent on sunny days, so it works best in regions that get enough sunshine.
Solar panels have also come a long way from their older and bulkier versions, so you don’t have to worry about sacrificing aesthetics. And, with Quality Assurance Roofing’s expertise in residential roofing, you can have a solar roof that works and looks great.
Barrel tiles are white S-shaped tiles known for effectively keeping the heat out of homes. Their shape, which resembles terra cotta tiles, allows air to circulate underneath the curves of the S. Meanwhile, their white coating makes them more efficient in reflecting sunlight.
White Metal Roofing
White metal roofing may not perform as well as barrel tiles, but it can adequately reflect the sun’s energy back to the atmosphere. It has its own advantages as well since white metal roofing can cool faster at night. In terms of durability and maintenance, this type of roofing also lets you save on costs.
