What are the Benefits of a Green Roof?
Every where you go, people are talking about being “green” or eco-friendly. As you consider all of the benefits of living “green”, it makes the little bit of effort that it takes well worth it.
We have a huge impact on the planet and its resources.
It’s our responsibility to be good stewards and appreciate the earth and all it has to offer so that generations to come will have the same resources as we have had.
As we live “green” we are not only guardians of the earth’s resources, but we benefit also.
Living green isn’t just riding a bike rather than driving or recycling our cardboard boxes.
You can take it to a whole new level, you can take it to your roof.
Benefits of a “Green” roof
- We conserve scarce natural resources
- We maximize the use of recycled materials
- We reduce energy by improving attic ventilation
- With the energy reduction, we lower heating and cooling bills.
Now more than ever, it’s easy to save energy and be environmentally responsible when making your roofing choices. That’s because we have access to great environmentally friendly products. Consider using these “green” components for your new roofing system:
Advanced Protection Shingles
Provide superior durability and wind resistance, while reducing the use of scare natural resources.
Cool Series Shingles
Especially designed to reflect sunlight and reduce unwanted attic heat…keeping your home cooler in the summer.
They can reduce peak cooling energy consumption by up to 50%, depending on geography, structure and climate.
Energy Efficient Intake Ventilation
The most effective solution for homes with little or no room for soffit/under-eave vents.
Allows for critical intake airflow for your attic ventilation system (or boosts the performance of existing soffit vents).
Roof Deck Protection
Allows unwanted heat and moisture to escape from your attic – which helps reduce energy costs.
Provides exceptional protection against wind driven rain (that can soak your insulation and reduce its efficiency).
We have access to all of these eco friendly products and would be proud to install them on your home.
