Hot weather can be a real pain especially in parts of the country where it’s present almost all year round. Fortunately, instead of having to deal with huge electric bills due to AC usage, you can turn the tables and invest in some of the best hot weather roofing systems and materials:
- Terra cotta and clay are some of the main types of roofing that are and have been used in various parts of Mexico and Spain for a very long time, and for good reason: they are great at insulating buildings against intense sunlight and heat. This is both due to their color and their composition, especially in the case of terra cotta, which goes through a hardening process that makes it virtually impervious to heat.
- Green living roofing systems are also great for keeping sunlight at bay and also using it in a more environmentally friendly way. Green roofs cast cooling shadows over your home, and they use plants to turn sunlight into refreshing oxygen which can be beneficial both for the environment and for your health.
- Finally, solar roofing systems are great for turning sunlight into energy and keeping its heat out of your home. In areas with a lot of sunshine and heat, this exchange can prove to be extremely beneficial, since you can use the excess electricity to power your AC without added cost.
