Eco-Friendly Roofing Options

Choose a durable roof that protects your home and the planet.

If it’s time to replace your roof, make sure you’ve consider all of your options. Green roofs are becoming increasingly popular in the roofing industry and include options that are both attractive and eco-friendly. The benefits of such a roof include:

  • aesthetic home improvement
  • landfill diversion
  • improved air quality
  • energy efficiency
  • decreased fire hazard
  • noise reduction

Make sure to consider these options when you’re picking out your eco-friendly roofing materials. Keep in mind that the best option for your home depends on the design of your home, and your budget.

Cool Roof

An eco-friendly roof isn’t always defined by the type of materials you use to build your roof; it can also be one that saves energy and resources.  A light-colored or white roof helps reflect the sun’s rays away from your house, which keeps your home cooler – and in turn reduces energy bills.

Metal Roofing

Choose a light-colored metal made with recycled content for an eco-friendly roof. Metal roofing is a great choice because it is extremely durable, long lasting, light reflective and fully recyclable. Metal roofing is also fire-resistant and a good option for homeowners who want to collect rainwater. With metal roofing you also don’t have to worry about the chemical runoff from asphalt shingles.

Recycled Shingles

This is probably the most eco-friendly traditional roofing option. Recycled shingles are often made from recycled building waste or from discarded factory material. These products are extremely sturdy and help divert waste from landfills. This material also reduces the processing of raw materials, which lowers energy consumption and reduces pollution. Recycled shingles can also come with exclusive warranty packages.

Rubber Roofing

If you’re interesting in a rubber roof, the first step is to make sure that rubber roofs are permitted in your area.  Rubber shingles are recycled from tire and come in a range of colors. This option is one of the most durable roofing options. Rubber shingles often last a lifetime and usually come with a great warranty package.
