Green Solutions For Your Roof
Have you been thinking about installing a new roof? Have you considered all of your options? Green roofs have become increasingly popular over the years, as they offer an eco-friendly solution. But not only do they help protect the environment, but they also offer financial benefits to building owners, in terms of potential tax benefits and lower energy costs. If you are looking to install a green roof, Supreme Roofing is only a call away. Our experts can install 3 types of eco-friendly systems: cool, solar, and vegetative 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. This saves building owners and property managers money on utility bills.
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.
A vegetative roof, also known as 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 sync with the natural environmental water life cycle). Vegetative roofs are not only eco-friendly, but they can also be beautiful.
Save Money and Protect the Environment With Our Green Solutions
As technology advances, it is smart to stay on top of trends and innovations, especially if they save you money. These green solutions for your roof are worth investing in. They can save you money on energy bills, by either harvesting energy or by not absorbing as much of the sun’s rays (which means the air conditioner works less). Our green solutions impact the environment positively by providing you with renewable energy instead of relying on fossil fuels that pollute the air. Green roofs are also good for the environment because it uses plants, which consistently produce fresh air.
