Let’s talk about something really sexy today. The roof of your house. And, even more specifically, the roof of your house + energy efficiency.
Here’s a really inexpensive way to lower your utility costs: by using Solar Board for your roof decking.
Product technology advancements are always happening, and we like implementing them. Solar Board OSB is a product that we’ve been using for many years. It looks just like your typical roof plywood decking on the outside, but on the underside (in the attic space), it has a layer of reflective foil.
Here are a few of the benefits:
1. Reduces radiant heat transfer through the roof by 97%
2. Reduces attic temperatures by up to 30 degrees
3. Increases the efficiency and life of your HVAC systems
4. Requires no special maintenance or attention
Solar board is an inexpensive way to lower your utility costs. The cost difference between your standard OSB and a Solar Board OSB is about a 20% increase in price—well worth using, especially considering what you will save in energy/utility bills.
Hope this helps as you’re planning out your custom home. We look forward to talking with you more about your project.
