One of the biggest advantages to a hot roof is that it extends your home’s thermal envelope to include your attic space. This is important because sometimes vital equipment is located in your attic. There may be duct work or water pipes that run through the area, and if it is un-conditioned problems can occur. Chief among them is higher energy costs from your HVAC system having to work extra hard to heat the cooled air from the cooled ducts. Also, in extreme cold water can freeze if the pipes run through a cold attic. Another advantage to having your attic space be included in your home’s conditioning is increased comfort. Temperature and pressure fluctuations in the attic can cause unwanted airflow throughout the rest of the house. Lastly, conditioning your attic allows you to use it as added living space.
You can convert it into a bedroom, or conditioned storage room, or whatever your needs require. Cross Construction Co. Roofing & General Contractors can also help you with this conversion. The hot roofing process is a simple one. It doesn’t require much of a different process than any conventional roofing, with only one difference. When creating a hot roof, the underside of your roofing is sprayed with foam insulation. The reason this simple process is so effective is because spray foam insulation is twice as powerful as fiberglass insulation. That means your roofing will have double the insulation, in terms of insulating ability, of the rest of your home.
