Lets explore the benefits of radiant barrier roof sheathing and how it can help save on your energy bill! It works as a layer of aluminum is placed in an airspace to block heat from transferring between a heat-radiating surface and heat-absorbing surface.
The aluminum foil used in the radiant barrier sheathing stops up to 97% of the radiant heat from passing through to your attic. This is extra beneficial for people who live in the southern part of the US and experience warmer clients. In the heat of the summer having a radiant barrier roof will keep your home up to 30% cooler. This is a perfect addition to having a total energy-efficient home.
Adding this extra step for future cost savings is relatively easy and can be installed at the same time of the regular sheathing for your roof!
