July is one of the hottest months of the year. It’s right before the very hottest month of the year in Houston. July also has the most daylight of any month in Houston too. So chances are, your home is getting pretty warm, especially if you have an old roof.
If you want to find out how to keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, then check out some of these tips on how your roof can play a role in saving you money and keeping you from sweating while the AC is going.
- Inspect Your Roof: A roof inspection can pinpoint issues in your roof that can cause your home to lose energy and allow the heat from the sun to get through. When shingles are old, brittle, or missing (especially missing), there is less protection from the sun. Houston weather already gives your roof an absolute beating every year regardless of its condition, so make sure your roof is in tip-top shape for the brutal heat. EZ Roof Houston conducts free roof inspections, so we are always available to help.
- New Shingles: Sometimes the best option for your home is getting new shingles. This is your first line of defense against the heat of the sun. There are various types of shingles provided by EZ Roof Houston, and we are always here to educate you on what every type of shingle can provide for your home.
- Insulate Your Attic: We know this isn’t the roof, but it is right under the roof, which means they pretty much work hand-in-hand. Making sure your attic is insulated is an important part of keeping your home cool. Once the sunbeams break through the roofing, the insolation is your next line of defense. Getting this radiant barrier can really help with keeping your home cool.
