Restoration roofing is the name given to a process whereby a roofer places layers of material on an existing flat roof to strengthen it as well as increase the insulation value of the home. This type of roofing repair and remodeling may help California homeowners comply with new Title 24 requirements for energy efficiency. Jose Diaz, owner of JAD Roofs, Inc., offers homeowners assistance in understanding their responsibilities under Title 24 and how the restoration process can help them comply with these new guidelines as well as save money.
Title 24 was enacted by the California Energy Commission to make California homes and businesses more energy-efficient. Title 24 requires a “cool roof” to be installed over air-conditioned square footage in residential or commercial buildings, subject to certain exceptions. In many cases, home and business owners are faced with meeting these requirements when they renovate or have their roofs replaced.
“Restoration roofing is a way to meet Title 24 requirements without having to replace your entire roof,” says Diaz. “This process extends the life of your roof and provides compliance with Title 24 and protection for years to come at a much lower cost than most other methods.”
Diaz is one of the few roofers in southern California who is certified through TROPICAL to meet Title 24 compliance standards. He performs many inspections and obtains permits for roofs himself, saving homeowners time and money. The installation process is carried out over a period of days, with new layers added each time. Most homeowners opt for four layers of protection, although more layers can be installed for maximum insulation value and efficiency.
