POLARALUM THERMAL BARRIER HELPS BEAT TEXAS HEAT
An effective Polaralum thermal barrier will reflect heat away from your home which will lower energy costs while increasing comfort to your home. If you are having a new roof install, now is a great time to consider adding a Polaralum thermal barrier.
HOW DOES POLARALUM THERMAL BARRIER WORK ON MY ROOF?
Radiant heat is generated by the sun and is the primary source of radiant energy. It heats the exterior of your home, and this heat eventually is introduced into the interior of your home. The Polaralum thermal barrier helps keep your home cool by reflecting back the suns radiant energy and preventing heat build-up in your attic. Polaralum is an underlayment that goes on top of the deck, underneath the shingles. It is also slip resistant and won’t tear. Polaralum is impact-resistant to hail and does not need to be removed if a storm destroys your new roof. Your investment will be covered with either a 15# or 30# traditional felt.
WILL A POLARALUM THERMAL BARRIER HELP HEAT IN WINTER?
Yes, in the winter, the same barrier will reflect back up to 80% of the heat that tries to escape from your home through the attic.
DOESN’T MY HOME INSULATION DO THE SAME THING AS A POLARALUM THERMAL BARRIER?
No. While insulation is extremely important, it will not stop radiant heat transfer.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A POLARALUM THERMAL BARRIER?
- Reduces Heat During Summer
- Increases Energy Efficiency
- Keeps Heat From Escaping In Winter
