Roof Renovations 101: Go Green with New Roofing Solutions

When it comes to renovations, not many people place a lot of focus on the roof of their home. Essentially, a roof is there to protect the home and its occupants from the elements, and doesn’t really need to look amazing or have the latest styles incorporated. However, reviving your roof can actually do a lot for your home. A new roof will not only make your home look better, but it can also add value and help you to become more eco-friendly at the same time.

Roofing Options

There are a variety of ways to ‘green’ your roof. For starters, if you have a flat roof, you can easily plant green vegetation on it to attract and store the sunlight, giving you a rooftop garden that is also a source of energy. Vegetation is a great material for roofing that has been used for centuries to keep the elements outside and maintain temperature. Of course, if your roof has any sizeable pitch, you won’t be able to use this option. Here are some other ideas:

-Aluminum roofing. This material comes in many different colors today if you want something more attractive. However, aluminum is very good at keeping a barrier between the elements and your home. It keeps the outside out and the indoor air in better than most roofing materials. It’s also cheap, often recycled, and basically maintenance-free.

-Solar panels and sky lights. These are great sources of roofing materials when you want to cut back on how much material you actually use. You can install sky lights for less electricity usage in your home, lower roofing costs, and more energy efficiency. Solar panels will also increase your green image and help lower your electric costs. At the same time, you’re saving money on the square footage of shingles or other materials that you have to buy.
