Roofing materials play an important role when it comes to maintaining conditions indoors, especially if you are located in areas with warm climates. Some property owners think that the first thing to check for regulating temperature indoors is their HVAC system. However, you should probably check with your roofing system first. Sometimes, you have to make sure that your roofing system has the most appropriate materials to protect your property from extreme heat, especially during warmer days or the summer season.
If you want a natural way to cool your roof, go for green roofing system. This makes use of plants and greenery which help release cooler air for your property. The green roof also protects the roof’s base which helps prolong the life of your roofing system.
Metal roofing may not be on the top of your list for but you should still consider it. Just make sure that you will be using white metal roofing. Although it may fall short when it comes to effective heat shield during the day, it has an edge at night. Metal roofs cool faster which helps you maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. Aside from that, this type of roof is durable, energy-saving and has low-maintenance costs.
One of the most recommended types of roof for warm climates is the flat tile roof. Choose white or light-colored tile roofs because they are more long lasting and heat-reflective compared to dark-colored ones.
You can also opt for built up roofing method. This makes use of roof coating or overlays to make your roofing more heat-reflective. You can opt for elastomeric roofing sealants and other surface coatings.
