Green Roofing Materials

- Thursday, December 27, 2012

When you think of having a green roof, you have a couple of choices.

Metal roofs
The ultimate green option for roofing is a metal roof.  Metal roofs don’t wear out. They are guaranteed for the lifetime of the homeowner and the guarantee is transferable. Essentially, once the metal roofing is installed, you are done. Metal roofs are also one hundred percent recyclable.
 
Another benefit to having a steel roof is energy savings. Metal roofs reflect the heat, keeping your attic cooler. Metal roofs are actually lighter than asphalt and can be placed over traditional asphalt roofing. That also saves on more asphalt ending up in a landfill.

If you live in an area where it snows, the standing seam construction of a steel roof helps prevent heavier snow loads and less snow-related hazards.

Wood shingles
Wood shingles are popular. While wood shakes are a green material and is 100% recyclable they wear out in 15 to 20 years maximum, not counting any type of storm damage. Wood shingles are very popular, but heat and cold will cause them to expand and contract, which will break them down over time.
