Cool Roofs

Roofs are by necessity a remodeling must at some point during the life of a house, but not always thought of in such terms. We “replace” roofs. We don’t necessarily “re-model” them. That said, not every roof replacement is a cut and dried clone of the previous roof. Let’s look at how a roof can take on new life and add value to your home.

Cool Roofs
Cool roofs are both literal and figurative. They are designed to keep the heat out and off the home, thus saving on using energy to cool the home itself. There are essentially three types of cool roofs.
 
Metal Asphalt SPF (Polyurethane, Acrylic, Silicone and Polyurea coatings)
The Advantages of a Metal Roof They don’t rot, crack, warp, curl, split, flake, peel, break, burn, or blow off. It’s the most resistant roofing material to hail, wind, fire, and freezing/thawing. Available in wide variety of roofing styles, patterns, designs, and colors. Lightweight - most styles are less than one-third the weight of asphalt/fiberglass shingles. Energy efficient - can lower your a/c and heating costs. Low maintenance. Long lasting and durable. Long warranty. Can reduce the cost of your homeowner's insurance. Can usually be installed over your existing roof (reroofing). Can increase the resale value of your house .

Appearance; Asphalt/shingles have a wide variety options, from wood, cedar shakes, tile and slate, there’s an abundance of options. From a cost perspective, asphalt roofs are affordable since they are manufactured in bulk. Clearly, asphalt roofs have a built in cost advantage. Popularity. People are familiar with asphalt roofs and if they are in good shape and reflect the essence of a house, they are a plus in a re-sell. Unlike the somewhat esoteric properties of a metal roof, there’s not a lot of explaining to do when it comes to asphalt roofs. The Advantage of an SPF Roof
SPF essentially stands for spray foam insulation and polyurea coatings. Polyurethane foam is applied as a liquid, creating a single monolithic membrane that covers the entire roof – no seams and no joints. The foam is easy to replace when stacks or other roof penetrations need to be added..
 
Flexibility: Foam can be sprayed onto virtually any surface, even irregularly shaped roofs. Roof mounted units, penetrations, curbs and parapets can receive a seamless monolithic application because SPF is spray-applied.
 
Lightness: Foam roofs typically weigh around 50 lbs per square, versus 800 lbs for a built-up ...
