Since the beginning of time, humans have put effort in to making themselves as comfortable as possible. This is just a part of our instinct. Over time, this has evolved into many different facets of what we see today. But what about the homes we live in? Simply put, home structures have evolved for many different cultures. For instance, you'd be hard pressed to find a dirt bungalow with a straw thatched roof in Woodstock, Georgia. So, how exactly have our home-building materials advanced? More specifically, what are some of the latest technology advancements in roofing, and how did we get here?
Since the dawn of time, finding and creating shelter for ourselves and our families has always been a number one priority. When people started first making houses, they had to come up with a way to protect themselves against rain, ice, wind, and harsh sunlight. This meant finding materials that were accessible and durable. People would use anything from clay tiles, straw thatching, to metal roofing; in fact, you can read more about the brief history of roofing in our blog.
While at first glance it might seem like roofing hasn't progressed in the last hundred or so years, Trotter Roofing and Gutters is an expert in providing the latest, greatest, and most current information in roofing. And luckily, there have been many technology enhancements to roofing materials, processes, and technology!
1. Cooling Roofs
This type of roof is especially popular in warm, southern climates. Cool roofs are designed to reflect sunlight and absorb less heat during the daytime. Commercial buildings will opt for these types of roofs to help decrease the heat emitted by their large building size and keep the inside patrons cool! The cooling roofs are made with reflective granules and coating, which is designed to "bounce" harsh sun.
Homes are a big investment that you don't want to leave up to chance, including your roof! Take advantage of the latest roofing technology by using a roofer with the skills and knowledge to provide you with the best choice for your needs.
