It’s no wonder that eco-friendly commercial roofing systems have become so popular. In addition to the environmental benefits they provide, they also offer financial benefits to building owners, in terms of potential tax benefits and lower energy costs.

Supreme’s environmental commercial roofing solutions include the following 3 types of eco-friendly systems:

Cool Roofing

A white roof coating (also known as a “cool roof”) is one of the most affordable commercial roofing systems available. Because the roof is white, it stays cooler (unlike traditional, dark roofs, which can absorb the sun’s rays).  A roof’s surface, especially in Texas and other southern states, can reach up to 160 degrees or higher, making the building hotter, and forcing air conditioning systems to work harder to keep the building cool. A white roof coating is able to reflect the sun’s ultraviolet rays, preventing them from being absorbed into the building….saving building owners and property managers money on utility bills.

Supreme Roofing Systems has the experience and know-how to install a cool roofing system to fit each client’s needs. Not only is Supreme experienced, but as a member of the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC), we actively remain at the forefront of the industry.

 
Solar (Photovoltaic) Roofing
Eco-friendly, commercial roofing systems that include solar panels (also called “PV

” roofs) can save businesses money and increase the life of a roof. The sun is a powerful source of renewable energy and when harvested by solar panels, it can be converted into clean, usable electricity. Solar power does not pollute the atmosphere and can help businesses cut back on traditional electricity costs.

Supreme Roofing Systems is proud to be among the first in the country with a team member to qualify as a  Certified Solar Roofing Professional™ (CSRP™) by Roof Integrated Solar Energy™ (RISE™).  Richard Weibley, is among the first 14 roofing professionals in the country and the first in Texas  to qualify as a  CSRP™ by Roof Inte

grated Solar RISE. The CSRP™ designation is a certification for those who plan and oversee the installation of roof-mounted photovoltaic (PV) systems. The credential evaluates whether candidates have the underlying knowledge required to successfully install a roof-mounted PV system, including an understanding of critical roof system construction and maintenance practices necessary to successfully support roof-mounted solar energy installation without adversely affecting roof system performance and service life.

Vegetative Roofing

A vegetative roof (also called a “green roof”) is covered in plants. A layer of protection is first put down, on top of a traditional roofing system. Then layers of soil and plants are put atop the protection layer. As the plants grow, they protect the roof, reducing the roof’s temperature and controlling the water run-off (working in synch with the natural environmental water life cycle). Vegetative roofs are not only eco-friendly, but they can also be beautiful.
