Increase Home Value & Energy Efficiency with Metal

Heat Transfer Reduction by Way of Metal Roofing

The largest threat to the energy efficiency of your Little Rock home is heat transfer, which is the process by which heat enters and leaves an object or space. Given that heat transfer occurs in homes every day, it’s very important to find ways to combat and reduce it in order to reduce a home’s daily energy output. This saves money for the homeowner and preserves the environment since the home doesn’t have to burn so through much energy. There are many options for combatting heat transfer but one of the most effective is having a metal roof from Royal Windows & More installed on your Little Rock home. Due to the fact that roofing makes up a large amount of your home’s exterior, it is very important to consider its values regarding solar reflectance and thermal emittance.

Breaking Down Thermal Efficiency

The solar reflectance of a roof is a measure of its ability to reflect solar heat; a roof with a better solar reflectance is able to better protect your home from high energy costs. Thermal emittance is the measurement of an objects ability to re-radiate absorbed heat. Objects with lower thermal emittance values are better for your home’s energy efficiency. Our stone-coated metal roofs have been designed to possess values of high reflectivity and low emissivity. These values combine to provide your home with a thermally efficient roof. Furthermore, the application of stone-coatings enhances the roof’s thermal performance. This means that a stone-coated metal roof like the ones we have at Royal Windows & More do more for the thermal performance of your Little Rock home than others.

Energy Efficient Metal Roof Installations

As we’ve covered, the thermal performance of a stone-coated metal roof exceeds that of traditional roofing. However, a primary concern with metal roofs has long been their appearance. Fortunately, the natural stone-coating eliminates such concerns as it allows metal roofs the ability to simulate the look of more traditional roofing styles such as shake, shingle, and tile. That leaves the largest concern to be making sure that you receive a premier installation from a trusted roofing source. At Royal Windows & More, we specialize in providing exceptional roofing installations that won’t let you down. It’s time to enjoy the beauty, durability, and energy efficiency of a new metal roof; just contact us to schedule your free consultation and be on your way to a better roof for your Little Rock home.
