Radiant Barriers are a highly effective solution to the blistering Texas heat. Not only do radiant roofs significantly reduce heat gained in summer but the radiant insulation also brings huge energy savings on your cooling bills.

The scientifically advanced radiant barrier insulation lowers the flow of radiant heat transferred to all parts of your house, so you can relax and enjoy cool interiors no matter what the temperature is outside. What’s more, your radiant roof or attic radiant barrier will also help lower the amount of heat lost in winter.

What is a radiant barrier?

Radiant barriers usually consist of a thin sheet or coating of a highly reflective material like aluminum. Although radiant insulation and attic insulation have the same purpose, a radiant heat barrier is rated extremely high in efficiency.

We install HeatBLoc75 radiant heat barrier which blocks 75% of the heat from transferring through your roof and into your attic, and has a low emittance rating. The radiant barrier insulation coating includes aluminum powder and zinc which are mixed in a water base and applied like paint to the underside of your roofing.

How does it work?

During the summer your roof absorbs the sun’s energy and radiates heat downwards into your house. When you install a roof radiant barrier, the heat is reflected back up and your radiant attic lowers the amount of heat transmitted to the rooms below. The radiant barrier is also effective in keeping the heat in during in winter.

Also used by NASA to keep their lunar vehicles cool, HeatBloc75 extends the life of your central air system and raises the value of your home. Moreover, each installation includes an additional 4-6 inches of blown insulation on top of any existing insulation thus increasing your overall R-Value. Talk to us about installing the superior radiant barrier that will yield optimum results.

What does the roof radiant barrier installation involve?

Radiant installation can take anywhere from 4-6 hours depending on the size of the attic space. Our experienced technicians will carefully remove all objects from the attic and then spray the underside of the roof with HeatBloc-75. After your radiant barrier insulation has been applied, an additional 4-6 inches of InsulsafeSP Fiberglass insulation will be blown into the attic.

Although it is perfectly safe for you to stay in your home during theradiant roof installation stage you might get a paint-like odor which should disappear by the next day. Your radiant barrier will result in 25% savings on your electricity bill.
