It’s easy to forget about how important your roof is. A roof does so much more than enclose your home. Here are 3 reasons why it is important to get your roofing right.
Did you know your roof has a large impact on the energy efficiency of your home? The colour of the roof and the insulation used will impact how energy efficient your home is.
Generally speaking, a darker roof will absorb more heat than a lighter colour roof. Lighter roof colours reflect the heat and are a better choice for energy efficiency.

NextSTAR™ Coorong™ – a tribute to the beautiful Coorong World Heritage area here in South Australia.
NextSTAR™ Freycinet™ – named after the stunning Freycinet Peninsular in Tasmania.
The type of insulation you use has a huge impact on the energy efficiency of your home. A good quality insulation will help your house stay warm in winter and cool in summer.
Placing the insulation blanket directly under the roof sheets will reduce the heat that enters the roof cavity. This in turn will ensure your home is more energy efficient.
Protecting your home
One of the most important roles of your roof is to protect the contents of your home (yourselves included!) A roof made from strong, durable and effective materials will keep your contents safe.

There are many reasons for considering the aesthetic of your roof. For one, your roof is the main focal point of your home. Making sure it looks good and fits in with the rest of the house is important.
It is also a factor in resale value as a roof that needs work will drop the price of your home.
As you can see, the importance of your roof cannot be understated. Are you considering a re-roof or roof restoration? Give our experienced roofing team a call today and request a quote.
