The Benefits of Cool Roofing in Tampa, FL

Jun 17, 2024

As someone local to Tampa, Florida, you don’t need anyone to tell you just how hot it gets in the summer—and, really, year-round. Just as you likely look for ways to keep yourself cool and take measures to avoid overheating, it’s important that you do the same for your home. In other words, you’ll want to do whatever you can to keep your home cool and make it more comfortable to live in throughout the year—even when the temperatures outside are at their highest. One way of doing so? Investing in cool roofing. What is cool roofing, and what benefits can it offer for your Tampa home? Let our team at Roofing Done Wright walk you through the answers you’re looking for.

Understanding Cool Roofing & What It Can Do for Your Tampa Home

Cool roofing is a wise, eco-friendly option for homeowners in Tampa and throughout Florida. After all, cool roofs feature reflective surfaces or coatings designed to better reflect sunlight and absorb less heat. That alone gives you a decent picture of how beneficial these roofs can be under the hot Florida sun, doesn’t it? Because according to the U.S. Department of Energy, a roof can hit up to 150 degrees Fahrenheit or more during the hottest days of the summer. Naturally, that can lead to the roof—and your home—absorbing some of that heat and impacting the indoor temperature. That can affect your HVAC system’s ability to maintain a steady temperature, plus it can disrupt the comfort you enjoy inside your home.

On the flip side, cool roofs can stay significantly cooler than a standard roofing system, which has a whole plethora of benefits, such as:

More Comfort Inside Your Home

When the days are at their hottest, a standard roof may allow some of that outside heat to enter the attic and your home. That can, understandably, affect the temperature of your home’s interior, which is certainly not what you want as a Florida homeowner. Your home should be an escape from the intense heat of the outdoors, and a cool roof helps create that escape by absorbing less heat and protecting against heat transfer into your home.

Less Energy Consumption

Part of the benefit that comes with cool roofs limiting heat transfer is the fact that less heat transfer means an easier time for your home’s HVAC system as it maintains a steady interior temperature. When your HVAC doesn’t have to work as hard, it consumes less energy. That’s what makes cool roofs such an environmentally friendly option, especially in Tampa and throughout Florida.

Lower Energy Costs

With less heat transfer and less energy consumption from your HVAC also comes a decrease in your monthly energy bills. Talk about a win across the board, right? The energy efficiency of cool roofing helps not only your home but your bank account as well. And considering the fact that your energy bills are likely to rise in the summer as it is, anything that can lead to savings is a great choice for your Tampa home.

An Extended Lifespan for Your Roof

When a standard roof is exposed to the intense heat and harsh conditions of the Tampa climate, it can lead to a shorter lifespan. Such high temperatures can lead to a quicker deterioration of roofing materials, whether that surfaces in the form of warping or cracking. But with cool roofing and its ability to absorb little heat and reflect UV rays, you can have your roof’s lifespan extended and see your roof replacement needs pushed further into the future.
