Top Options for a Green Roof

Categories:

Green Roof Frisco,TXThere are many benefits to having a green roof on your home or business. Sometimes the terminology and technology can get confusing. With energy efficiency, sustainability, and earth-friendly options being more popular, there are many roofing materials to choose from. Peak Roofing & Construction has gathered the top options you can choose for a green roof.

Tile Roofing

Tile roofing is a great long-lasting and durable option for those who live in warmer climates. The tile’s unique shape helps with ventilation and tile will last a very long time with the right maintenance. Tile is available in a large range of colors, including lighter tones that better reflect sunlight. That reflection is what will keep your home cooler during those hot summers.

Reflective Pigmented Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing and the least reflective. To maintain their affordability but increase their efficiency, you can request that the shingles be treated with reflective pigments. These can help reflect sunlight and help your home stay much cooler than before.

Roof Pavers

Pavers are tiles designed for roofing and are very thick and reflective. This unique option reflects 78% of UV light and has all the great long-lasting desired characteristics of tile roofs. This type of roofing is heavy and may not be the best fit for certain buildings. Talk with a professional roofer to see if roof pavers may be an option for you.

Metal Roofing

Coated metal roofing is a great reflective, cool, and green option for roofing. Metal roofing is inexpensive, durable, and if you add a light colored coating, it becomes extremely efficient. Many residential properties are switching from traditional asphalt shingles to coated metal roofing as an affordable and attractive alternative.
