Why Use A New System?
A faulty roofing system can cost you money in less obvious ways too. Some of these less obvious problems include excessive energy costs. This is usually caused by insufficient attic ventilation, causing the heating/cooling system to run excessively. In warm weather, inadequate ventilation will trap hot air in the attic, causing air c onditioning systems to work harder, or leaving your home's interior hotter and less comfortable. Attic Ventilation: In both hot and cold weather, insufficient attic ventilation may cause moisture in the attic to become trapped and condense on the rafters. This condensed moisture can drip down onto the insulation and reduce its effectiveness.
Most people think of a new roof as just banging up some shingles. But savvy homeowners know better! Today, effective roofing relies on advanced material technology and an integrated systems approach to protect your biggest asset— your home.
