Growing Heat Concerns in the Attic
Your rooftop does a lot to protect your home from weather hazards such as hail, severe wind, and rain. But one threat often passes right through the roof surface and into the attic. That threat is solar heat, and it greatly affects your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
Thankfully, our Fort Worth, TX roll-on foil barrier solutions can help! By reflecting the vast majority of the radiant heat emitted by the underside of the roof, these reflective systems drastically reduce the resting temperature in your attic. To learn more about how these systems benefit your home, call our knowledgeable team at 817-781-8781!
Simple Roll-on Materials
While there are alternative forms available on the market, many homeowners prefer to stick with the basic roll-on foil barrier. These sheets can be easily transported and installed in the attic, during or after home construction. Situated between the rafters (with an air pocket to prevent conduction), the aluminum foil easily reflects up to 97% of heat radiated by the roof.
The product can be installed over the attic floor, but this may create an issue with condensation on extremely hot days. Our professionals ensure that your radiant barrier is spaced correctly for maximum coverage. When paired with additional attic insulation (to prevent air loss), the energy efficiency benefits soar even higher!
