Energy upgrades for roofing projects

Speaker: Chuck Miller, Principal, Doty & Miller Architects. When major roof repair or asphalt shingle replacement is being planned, it's a perfect time to consider what else can be done to improve a home?s energy performance. The most effective results occur when the entire building shell undergoes a Deep Energy Retrofit (aggressive energy-improving upgrades), but this is beyond the budget of most homeowners. This presentation will identify effective options for attic and roof improvements. Are vented or unvented roofs better? Should insulation be added at the attic floor or at the roof line? These questions and more will be discussed and illustrated for varying roof conditions found in older homes.
