Keep in mind when "reflecting or blocking" the radiant heat from entering the interior of the home, it causes the reflected heat to "superheat" the shingles(if you have them) and will cut your roof life short. Try and figure cooling savings and what it will cost to replace your roof in 15-20 years. Roofing asphalt has gone from 400.00/ ton last year to about a 1000.00 a ton right now. Shingle $$ and disposal $$$ will only continue escolate as well. There are a lot of variables in the big picture to consider.

Ben have I met you?

Are you with RIS?

I am boatless for the first time in 15 years. Sold my 27 Fountain in April. Kind of looking for a 35 now.

Ron actually did the insulation in my house, my neighbor has about the same square footage that i have and the same insulation but i have R B plywood on my roof. My electric bill is between $60-80 less per month than my neighbor. Like Ron said my soffit is vented on the entire length of the house.

P.S. Ron i guess you know that they finally went under.

Hi Ron,
I am with RIS and we did meet in your office in early 2007. You were just completing a consolidation with another contractor.
Things change, RIS has a new MS/LA Branch Manger, and the market is much tougher!
Let's figure out how to grow together.

Good to hear from you Sprague. Glad to know you are a fellow powerboater!

I remember meeting you now. Your salesman Philip has been by a couple of times. You are right the market is tougher now. Things are comming around though. We are actually getting busy enough to put more trucks on the road. Its looking like quarters 3 & 4 will be good for us.

See you around,

Ron

When I reroofed my house I cut a 1 inch slot along the ridge and covered it with some stuff that looked like plastic corragated cardboard then the cap shingles. It cut my summer cooling bill in half. I got the plastic stuff at Lowes.
