The Best Roofing Solution For Lowering Your Energy Bills

The Best Roofing Solution For Lowering Your Energy Bills

There are many things to consider when running a business and overhead is one of the largest. Some expenses are fixed and don’t change, but some things such as utilities can be reduced. When summer temperatures soar in Austin, it becomes important to find ways of lowering energy bills.  roof-austin-commercial

The roof on your commercial building provides one main function–keeping the weather out–but it also lets things like heat in. What most commercial building owners don’t realize is the roof can be one of the main factors in higher utility bills. When the roofing system warms up because of the sunlight, it transfers heat energy into the structure. Sometimes the heat transfer can raise the temperatures of the building 10-15 degrees. In many cases an air conditioning system just can’t keep up.

But there are options to help you lower those bills and keep your building cooler even in the hottest parts of Austin’s summer. With a simple phone call, Lone Star Roofing can schedule a professional inspector out to inspect your roof. Even if you’ve never had any problems, we can still offer you solutions that can save you money.

Reflective aluminum is a very popular choice for many commercial building owners. With the availability of different aluminum roof options, applying a reflective coating is a great option. These shiny roofs, reflect much of the sun’s rays, so that the heat doesn’t transfer into your building.

Another option is the White Roofing system. Like the reflective aluminum roofing coating, this system also reflects much of the sun’s rays, however we can install a new single play roof or we can do a white roof coating for your buildings.

Both of these options can help you qualify for Energy Star tax credits along with saving you money on your cooling bills. So if you have any questions–even if your roof doesn’t leak–call Lone Star Roofing. We would be happy to discuss any options.
