How a New Roof Helps you Save Money

Replacing your roof is a big decision as it comes at a big cost up front. If you’re debating whether or not you should get your roof replaced now or push it a couple of years, our professional advice is to do it NOW. Taking this initiative will actually save you money in the long run. Here’s how a new roof can help you cut your energy costs, and save you money.

1. Solar Reflection

The better your roof reflects solar light, the more energy-efficient it is. This is because when shingles absorb solar heat, they transfer that heat to your home. Roofs with high solar reflection can actually lower surface temperature up to 30%.

2. Shingle Colour

Shingle colour has a similar effect on your home. Dark shingles will absorb heat while light shingles will reflect it. Depending on where you live, your shingle colour can help lower your energy costs by helping your heating/cooling system regulate temperature.

3. Energy Star Rating

Energy Star is the authority on all energy-efficient building materials and consumer products. When you see this label, you can feel confident that whatever you’re purchasing will help you save money. In fact, Energy Star shingles can lower roof temperature by up to 100 degrees, which is a huge difference when it comes to savings!
