Before Hiring a Nevada roofing contractor, make sure they are Licensed and Insured
Nevada roofing contractors don’t like to gamble with your roof. This state has draws people from all over the country because of the predominantly warm, sunny weather. Ironically, when residents of the Midwest or the east are outside enjoying the summer temperatures, home owners in Nevada stay indoors where the air conditioning makes the environment bearable. Anyone that does not like to experience the searing desert heat should be aware that their homes are subject to the same stress.
There has been a quantum leap in technology for heat resistant shingles, but it is more common to see homes built with clay or cement tiles on the roof. These are very durable and able to take the incessant pounding by the UV rays from the sun. In other parts of the country the condition of the roof and the attic are partially responsible for the cost of the energy to heat a house and prevents the formation of an ice dam. In the desert, the concern revolves around the cost to cool a home.
A properly constructed roof helps to reflect the heat and pull it off the house. Proper attic ventilation means the heat buildup in the house is constantly being circulated out of the attic. A cool attic helps to keep the rest of the house cool, thus reducing the strain on the ac units. A reputable roofer can audit your home and tell you where you are leaking cool air to the outside. They can also tell you if you are risking the growth of black mold due to water damage inside the walls.
Your roof acts like a shade umbrella over the entire house in hot, dry climates. Keep it in good shape and you’ll see the difference in your energy bills, and you’ll prevent an unnecessary roof replacement. Call your local Nevada roofing contractors today for a free roof inspection.
