3 Ways to Make Your Roof Eco-Friendly
June 18, 2018
A roofing company like Rapid Roofing understands the importance of eco-friendly materials. The call for adding greener materials to your roof has been slowly been gaining traction although the industry hasn’t fully caught up to it yet.
However, there are other ways you can make your roof environmentally friendly. Learn from your experts here at Rapid Roofing about how to make your roof greener.
Ventilation and Insulation
Your first line of defense in all roofing-related matters are the shingles. However, the most energy-efficient part of your roof is the insulation. That’s why it’s important to check your attic and see how hot it is. Make sure also that the insulating sheets are properly installed.
Aside from those, you can have your residential roof service provider add ventilation, soffits and fascia. That can help reduce heating and cooling costs in your home. This means you reduce the power consumption of your home, so that its carbon footprint also becomes smaller.
Sometimes the best way to improve your home is with a bit of light. Skylights can help with ventilation. They also help greatly with lighting. Residential roof services have started using solar reflective tubes during skylight installation. These bring in more natural light during the day, which reduces the need for electric lights.
Occasionally performing roof maintenance can do wonders for your bills and your long-term investment. Roofs that are properly maintained last longer because roofers clean up debris. It’s highly regarded by both residential and commercial roofing service providers to be more sustainable than repairs.
