New roof contributes to energy efficiency

The weather in South Bend, IN, is drastic all year round. The Summer brings UV light and humidity. The Spring and fall seasons tend to be rainy and windy! Winters are especially long, with temperatures well below freezing and lots of snow. The conditions are taxing on the roof! Ice, sleet, hail, pests, blizzards and thunderstorms undermine the durability, curb appeal and longevity of the roofing system. I was reluctant to update my roof. The shingles had leaked and been repaired and re-roofed so several times that the whole system needed to be torn off. There was extensive water disfigurement. I knew that it would be a truly pricey, lengthy and invasive project. I procrastinated for as long as possible; Every time it rained, I would run around and arena buckets under the drips from the ceiling. I had the roof updated during the month of June, hoping to avoid the concerns of a downpour. That year, the temperature in South Bend soared into the high eighties and even the nineties nearly every afternoon. With no roof on the house, my friend and I couldn’t run the cooling system. The living space became horribly warm and sticky. There was dirt, debris and bugs to deal with; However, once the up-to-date roof was in site, I noticed a crucial difference in our level of comfort. The cooling system was able to cool the cabin down within an hour, but my biweekly electric bill was seriously lower. The next winter, I was able to set a lower control unit setting. I paid less in heating bills and yet the cabin was perfectly moderate and cozy.
