When you work with Big Creek Roofing and Restoration, you can trust that we’re well-versed in the latest building codes that are necessary for providing safe, comfortable buildings. When these codes are updated, our team is ready to respond, make changes, and guarantee the best service to our customers.
We follow the standards of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which makes up a larger family of international codes. The IECC provides minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial buildings — new and old. The code is updated every three years, and these requirements make spaces more comfortable and cost-effective. They are also better for the environment.
With the 2015 IECC, reroofing and insulation details caught our attention.
What is reroofing?
Reroofing happens when we add a new roof to an existing building or make repairs to a roof on an existing building.
What does the 2015 IECC say about reroofing?
Although the existing building meets the standards for previous codes, any insulation materials used during a reroofing must meet current energy code requirements. In other words, customers should have the best insulation materials for their roof repairs.
What does this mean for insulation materials?
To measure the effectiveness of insulation materials, industry professionals examine the R-value — or how well the materials resist heat. The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulation material will be for keeping your heating and cooling costs low. Reroofing insulation must meet the minimum R-values for the current codes.
How will customers benefit?
By following the guidelines of the IECC, we are giving each customer the best insulation materials for their roof and a more energy-efficient space. Our main priority is to provide top-quality service and materials, which means your home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Each climate is different. If you live in Denver, you can trust that we will repair your roof with top-of-the line insulation materials. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.
