With summer comes the heat, which can affect your in-home comfort and increase your cooling bills by a large margin. One of the best insulation companies in Texas, Fortenberry Roofing Co., believes you can prevent such concerns and enjoy your home, despite the searing heat of the season. Here are some home improvement ideas you should try, if you would like your home to be more energy-efficient and comfortable all summer long.
Amateur roofing companies tend to neglect the attic ventilation when they install a home’s roof. While you can increase the insulating material in your attic to make your home cooler, poor ventilation will keep your attic hot. This will not only make it harder for your AC to cool your home, but it will also have an effect on your asphalt shingles. The trapped heat will bake your shingles, causing them to buckle or break. Come winter, snow on your roof will melt more quickly but it will then refreeze at the edge, forming ice dams. Ice dams are one of the leading causes of roof leaks and water damage.
Have a professional like us take a look at your attic ventilation and we’ll talk about making improvements to keep temperatures in your attic ideal.
Install new siding with better insulation to help protect your home against extreme temperatures. Though concrete and wood siding are some of the more popular options, siding companies recommend insulated vinyl, as it provides the same level of insulation, but with a more affordable price tag. Ask us to get you started with your new siding installation today. We’ll recommend the right siding material for your home.
Not all roofs have to be replaced. There are signs, however, that should tell you if it’s time to replace yours. For example, if the majority of your shingles are discolored or deformed, or if they’ve shed almost every granule, it’s probably time to replace the entire roof. An overheating attic, as mentioned above, can shorten the life of your roof. And an old roof is almost always a candidate for replacement.
We are a roof replacement authority in Texas, and we can help you decide whether your roof needs some fixing, or if it’s too far gone. Rest assured we can install a roof you will never complain about. If, for any reason, you are not happy with our roof, we will fix or replace it at no cost to you. You can even tell us to simply remove the new roof and we will give you your money back.
