When you’re in the market for a new roof, you have several things for consider. The style of the building is one, since you don’t want your roof choice to clash with the existing building. Money is another consideration, since you don’t want to break the bank when you replace your roof. The good news is that there are roofing systems out there that can actually save you money on energy bills while helping the environment at the same time! There are both commercial and residential eco-friendly roof options.
Metal roofs work by reflecting sunlight rather than absorbing it, which helps you use your air conditioner less. When you save energy, you’re not just saving money, you’re saving the earth! These roofs come in many different styles and materials, including shingles. They can also be painted and coated for a long-lasting, durable roof.
Shingles are the most popular residential roofing material in the United States. But did you know there are energy-efficient varieties? Just as metal reflects sunlight back up into the atmosphere, so do the granules in energy-efficient shingles! This saves you money on your air conditioning bills while helping the environment.
This type of roof is the best bet for businesses looking to reduce their energy consumption and save on cooling bills! Not only are TPO roofs durable, but they work similarly to the residential options above to reflect the sun’s light (and warmth) back up into the atmosphere, which means less strain on your commercial air conditioner!
