Majority of areas and cities in Pakistan have to go through a summer of intense heat where in some cities temperature soars as high as 50 degrees Celsius. Such hot summers not only make the life outside difficult but life indoors also get unbearable.
During day time house walls and roofs absorb solar heat and transmit that heat indoors making bedrooms unbearable to reside in.
Heat proofing is a proven way to prevent this dilemma as it provides complete protection from solar heat penetrating inside. With professional heat proofing services your house will stay cool in extreme high temperature and maintain your energy consumption to minimum.
Investing in heat proofing materials provides a great return on investment as they cut down your energy bills and keep your structure protected from extreme weathering. It is quite a handy solution to tackle heat wave in Pakistan which is also easily affordable.
Types of heat proofing in Pakistan and their cost
When people decide to apply heat proofing in their homes they usually get stuck on choosing the best type of heat proofing for their homes and if they decide which one then the varying prices of different materials and products become a big hurdle in making a decision.
First you need to understand the types of heat proofing and we are going to describe them to you one by one
