Is your roof costing you on cooling costs this summer?

Are you noticing an increase in heating and cooling costs year after year, even though your consumption hasn’t changed? This is not the result of raising the energy company raising its prices. It is your inefficient roof! Continue reading to learn more about how an inefficient residential roof may be costing you thousands of dollars in bills.

Why is roofing essential for heating and cooling?

The roof is an additional layer of insulation between your home and the outside world. Being able to accurately maintain the temperature in your attic directly correlates to your ability to keep temperatures in your home. See some of main causes of inefficient roofing/ attic below!

Poor Ventilation

As mentioned above, being able to manage attic temperatures is key in keeping your home cool. Since heat rises, if ventilation is being blocked, hot air in the attic can force its way back into your home.

Loose Shingles and Flashing

Shingles and flashing are essential aspects of your roof. They can become loose due to animals, high winds, downed trees, and even worn down from being old. When shingles or flashing are not properly installed or loose, rain can contact the frame of your home. As the wood dampens, freezes, and expands, cracks can form. This directly impacts the ventilation of your roof.

Your damaged roof impacts curb appeal.

A disheveled roof is also an eyesore to those passing by. If you have plans to sell your home in the future, a poorly ventilated, a dilapidated roof can dramatically impact your sale.
