For a roofing system to perform its best, it needs to be particularly suited to the climate of the property. Roofs, after all, are designed to protect against the elements, and you’ll make the most of your investment if you choose a roofing system that can take on the challenges you face every day.
If you are in an area where the climate is hot, you should take note of these recommendations from roof replacement expert Coxco Roofing:
It may appear counterintuitive to get a metal roof (metal conducts heat, after all) but the roofing option is one of the best for hot climates because it is highly emissive. This means whatever heat a metal roof does absorb is easily released, preventing excessive heat from being transferred into a home. This lets you avoid passive heating, which can increase your HVAC system’s cooling load.
Clay/Cement Tile Roofing
Clay and cement tile roofing are ideal for hot climates because they have cooling properties by design. As they are made to form concaves, they end up with spaces between them and decking materials through which air can circulate, keeping them from overheating and consequently warming up a property. Should you also require hail damage repair, you’ll be glad to have a clay or cement tile roof because tile pieces can be fixed individually.
Tile roofing is a common fixture over Spanish-styled homes but it can also complement other architectural styles, making it a flexible roofing solution for properties in hot climates.
