High Monthly Bills: Is Getting a New Roof the Solution?

By Stacy Mellete

As homeowners, we are always looking for ways to slash those monthly bills. That’s why we turn off our appliances when not in use, as well as keep our windows and doors closed tightly. If you want to step up your efforts, consider replacing that old roof.

Excessive utility costs come from different places in a building, but since the roof usually makes first contact with solar heat, it is one of the main potential points for energy loss. Let Affordable Roofing Systems explain how new residential and commercial roofing in Largo FL, can lower your monthly bills:

Superior Insulation

A new roof provides better insulation, boosting your protection against the weather and driving your energy bills down. You will also enjoy the benefit of an upgraded underlayment, which prevents moisture from leaking into your home between the shingles.

Enhanced Shingle Wind Rating

The wind ratings of shingles have increased dramatically over the last decade. In the middle to late 1990s, the highest rating was about 65-mph winds. Today, shingles can withstand winds of up to 130 mph. A higher wind rating means the roof is able to deal with drafts more effectively, which in turn lowers your heating and cooling costs.

Complying With Current Building Codes

Replacing your residential roofing in Largo FL, often brings standards up to current codes. This can have a positive impact on your home insurance rates and qualify you for certain tax rebates.

Heat Reflectivity

Going for a cool metal roof as a replacement is a surefire way to beat the heat and lower your monthly bills.

They are “cool” because they reflect solar heat away from the building. This helps maintain a balanced temperature between its deck and the structure underneath, which in turn means lesser strain on your cooling system and a lower energy bill at the end of the month.

If your roof is still in good shape, consider investing in a maintenance program to ensure it stays that way.  We offer detailed evaluations and emergency roof repairs in Largo FL, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
