This is a northern CA home built in 1954 with slab on grade foundation (no radiant heat) and no insulation in walls. It has a low sloped roof. Eichler style with many windows. Re-roof is needed b/c there is dry-rot on tail ends of beams and fascia. The roof currently has (possibly) 2 layers of T&G. We are on a tight budget (short sale and a lot of other improvements needed). Thinking Compliant Cool Roof modified bitumen roofing system, 2"in. rigid insulation, and fascia gutter system. Would an additional inter-ply membrane be necessary for this assembly? Other option is a foam roof, but is pricey and roofers that bid did not think it is necessary to remove existing roof - though they will for a price... Do we have any other options? Thank you so much in advance!! :)

When I think of Walnut Creek, I think of the “hot” side of the SF Bay. And when I look at the data, I see that my impulse is right. 

Although...
