Do you live in a house with a cathedral ceiling? This type of ceiling adds a lot of architectural panache to your home, but it does has some disadvantages such as overheating in summer caused by a lack of ventilation and heat loss in winter caused by lack of insulation.
To counter these problems, which can be viewed as a deficiency in the construction of your home, it is important to correct all areas when repairing your roof. A good way to fix the overheating problem is to build a structure over your existing structure, with enough room to ventilate the air. At the same time, it could be advantageous to replace the existing insulation with a more efficient insulator such as urethane. This insulation, with more than twice the R value of fiberglass, is really the best insulation for places with limited space, such as cathedral ceilings. By making these changes, you will improve the eco-energy aspect of the dwelling, which will result in an immediate gain in comfort as well as direct savings related to energy conservation.
