When I replaced the roof on our family home several years ago, I never considered the benefit of reducing our usual weekly bills. I procrastinated over the task until I kept finding stray little shingles in the grass. Every time it rained, I needed to run around and catch the leaks from the ceiling in buckets. I was reluctant to hire a roofing dealer for myself, because I knew the project would be extravagant and messy. Because I know the home is already super ancient and the roof had been patched so many times in the past, the entire thing needed to be torn off. There was a good deal of dirt and debris that came both inside the home and in our gardens and grass. All of us were then suddenly unable to run the air conditioner for an entire week, and the outside temperature of course climbed into the high eighties. All of us dealt with horrendous heat, humidity, and swarms of bugs. When the modern roof was finally in venue, our whole family was beyond anxious to turn down the temperature control and start up the air conditioner. Since already the house was so extremely overheated, I expected the air conditioner to continually struggle to bring the temperature down. I anticipated very high weekly bills that week after it was all said and done. However, the modern roof eliminated a good deal of inherent energy losses and reduced the workload of the cooling system. Within only a minute, the whole home was nice and cool. Plus, the indoor temperature throughout the house was far more consistent. I’m now looking into improving the insulation in the walls and ceilings.
