With all the products and services on the market for homeowners, planners, and facility managers, is covering a roof a necessity? While a roof will certainly work without a sheathing, there are so many benefits that in many cases they are worth serious consideration. We've rounded up six benefits that can inspire you.
The sun's rays will not be absorbed by a roof that is coated in white or reflecting material. The reflective property of the cladding keeps the building cooler, which can make a big difference in interior temperature, keeping the building cooler or lowering the cost of keeping it cool.
In the same line; much less energy will be needed to power the air conditioner. Not only does this save money for a business, which is important, but it can also help a business have a lower carbon footprint due to less energy.
A building's Energy Star rating is not static. It can change, as the structure changes. Adding a roof sheathing is one of the simplest ways to make a building more energy efficient and possibly raise the Energy Star rating.
Depending on your business goals, being able to show customers, vendors, and associates that you're doing everything you can to "green" the building can be a big deal. Green roofs, through roof cladding, relatively speaking, are an inexpensive and simple way to do.
Adding a roof liner will give the roof an extra layer and can protect it from leaks. Siding is not only added to the roof itself, but it can also help prevent damage from mold and mildew, which can cause roof leaks.
Roof sheathing can add life to a roof. An extra life can mean you can wait additional years before replacing the roof and potentially prevent roofing material from ending up in the landfill.
