If there is one thing you can’t entirely trust to be constant, it’s the weather. Just recently, a brief heat wave struck parts of Washington State. KOMO News captured some photos showing how residents of Seattle tried to beat the heat.
Seattleites were out soaking up the sun this week as temperatures reached the 80 degree mark. Locals perched on docks, boats, and set up shop on at parks near the water to make the most of the sunshine. May 2-3, 2014, Seattle, Wash.
If you are one who doesn’t want to suffer from the heat next time a wave like this hits your area again, and you want to save money on air conditioning, your best bet is to keep your home cool and comfy the entire year by opting for energy-efficient roofing materials such as the ones offered by a trusted Auburn roofing contractor. Metal roofs, for instance, are also known as cool roofs because of their ability to reflect away the sun’s rays, reducing heat absorption. Given this, they will not only help maintain comfortable temperatures inside your home but also aid in reducing energy costs as your air conditioning system won’t need to work harder during the hot days.
Another solution that you can consider is insulating your attic. Tedrick’s Roofing specializes in the installation of high-efficiency attic insulation. The blown-in insulation that we offer has insulating properties that are superior to the traditional fiberglass batting commonly found in home stores. Furthermore, we also offer roof repair that Auburn residents can count on. By ensuring that your roof is at its top shape, you can beat the heat and save money at the same time. If you want to keep your home prepared for the frequent changes in weather, give Tedrick’s Roofing a call today for a free estimate.
