Foil Under Shignles Radiant Barrier installed correctly under a roof using battens to create an air space.

I appreciate the excellent information you’ve provided.
I need to replace the roof on a house that I own, as the shingles are quite aged (over 25 years). Seems like the perfect time to put in a radiant barrier, in addition to lighter colored shingles (hey, I’m in SCORTCHING HOT Texas!!!).
If I can’t find a knowledgeable roofer in the Dallas / Fort Worth area (which seems incredible!), then I guess I’ll next look into tearing off the existing plywood decking and replacing with the silver-backed plywood.
Do you have any recommendations and/or know who in DF/W might be able to build a batten-style radiant barrier atop existing decking?
I’d call around to some of the local roofing supply companies. Ask them if they can recommend a roofing company that buys/installs metal roofing.
