You already know that roof replacement is a large and complex project that needs careful planning. But aside from preparing your home for the work ahead, and making informed decisions about roofing choices or warranty coverage, you’ll want to take into account how your roof adapts to future changes in weather and the built environment. DNB Construction, the trusted residential and commercial roofing company in the area, discusses roof adaptation and why you should consider it when getting a new system.
Climate Change and Urbanization
According to experimental observations from NASA GISS (National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Institute for Space Studies), global temperatures are rising. The United Nations Population Division also notes that a growing percentage of the world’s population are moving to urban areas. When climate change and urbanization converge, they create dangerous and possibly lasting future changes. These include an increase in extreme weather events and power outages.
Incorporating Adaptation to New Roof Design
You’ll need to consider these future changes when investing in a residential roofing replacement. This is where roof adaptation comes in. By investing in features that can meet these changes head-on, you’re sure your new roof can “adapt” and deliver the reliable and efficient performance you expect. When choosing your new roof, ask yourself these:
- Is the roofing material durable enough to overcome unexpected problems?
- How about its resiliency?
- Can it easily bounce back to its good condition following a major weather event?
- Are the roofing components safe for both humans and the environment?
- What energy-saving features does your new roof have?
To withstand the possible increase in extreme weather events, make sure your new roof comes with incredible impact resistance to withstand damage from hail and wind-blown debris. You can deal with blistering solar radiation by getting asphalt shingles with advanced reflective technology. As a GAF® Master Elite® company, DNB Construction can help you with this. We offer top-tier GAF Timberline® ArmorShield™ Shingles that meet the highest impact resistance rating. You should also check out our GAF Timberline® CS Shingles, which are highly reflective to help reduce attic heat buildup and save on cooling costs.
