Ultimate Radiant Barrier
Every year, thousands of Houston homeowners are throwing away thousands of dollars on unnecessary cooling and heating costs caused by faulty attic insulation!
In fact, the lack of proper roofing insulation and ventilation can lead to temperature spikes of up to 25%.
This increase in the ambient temperature inside your home causes your air conditioning system to compensate for the excess heat – forcing it to work twice as hard and consume more energy.
Given Houston’s harsh, subtropical climate, your home is exposed to considerable heat from the sun. This accounts for much of the heat you experience indoors.
Unfortunately, regular insulation alone cannot completely prevent heat from being transferred into your living space. A significant amount of heat is bound to reach your home.
Fortunately, there are radiant heat barriers. Unlike regular insulation that slows down the transfer of heat, radiant heat barriers resist the transfer of heat by reflecting it. Without the added Houston heat, the ambient temperature in your home is significantly lowered. Your air conditioning system consumes less energy, and you get:
A decrease of up to 40% in your cooling and heating bills
Lower load on your air conditioning system
A more comfortable regulated temperature in the home
A longer lasting roof
How It Works
Because it is made of aluminum, radiant heat barriers work by deflecting most of the heat that comes in contact with it. Aluminum has a heat absorption rate of 5%. This means that the remaining 95% of the heat is deflected.
And because materials with lesser densities conduct less heat, the heat absorbed by the barrier is harmlessly dissipated even before it reaches other parts of your attic.
The same principle applies during colder seasons. Only this time, the heat generated by your radiator is deflected back into the house. Because the heat’s got nowhere to go, your home stays warm. The indoor temperature remains constant, and you consume less energy.
Here are just some of the benefits you will enjoy with heat radiant barrier:
- Convenience – There is no need to take out your existing insulation. Radiant barrier insulation work with most types of insulation.
- Comfort – Enjoy maximum comfort all year round. You will immediately notice the change in temperature – your home stays cool during summer, and comfortably warm during the cold months. You’ll also avoid the spikes in humidity caused by inconsistencies in your home’s indoor temperature.
- Hassle-free installation – No hassle: radiant barriers are laid over or stapled on to the roofing joists. Installation generally only takes about a day to be to be completed by a professional.
- Durability – Unlike regular insulation, radiant heat barriers will not corrode, rot, or decay. Aluminum is also not susceptible to pest damage. In fact, it has been proven by multiple studies that aluminum can withstand up to 10 years of exposure to extreme weather conditions.
- Savings – Enjoy up to 40% savings on your cooling and heating bills. With hundreds of dollars worth of annual savings, the radiant barrier would have paid itself in a matter of years.

Because it is sprayed, it can reach even the trickiest nooks and crannies.Radiant barrier spray is also very useful if you’re just not ready to have anything stapled, installed, nailed, or laid out on your attic, especially if you have an antique home. Radiant barrier spray is also a cost-effective way to get started in “heat-proofing” your home.
When it comes to insulation…we’ve got you covered. You can rest assured that our selection of attic insulation is the best in the industry.
Attic Solar Fans
Enjoy longer roof life and a cooler home with an solar attic fan. Solar attic fans can help you lower your attic temperature by using the energy of the sun. A solar-powered motorized fan moves the hot air out of your attic so your home stays cool, even during summer months.
Attics can get very hot, very quickly. The hot attic air can seep down through your attic door and increase the ambient temperature of your home. This forces the air conditioning system to consume more energy. Attic tents can reduce this transfer of hot air by 71%.
