Not many roofing companies in Orlando choose to work in a manner that is as eco-friendly as possible, but we have. We’re fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world and we want to do our part to keep Orlando beautiful. That’s why we offer multiple eco-friendly products and recycle materials whenever possible.
Eco-Friendly Roofing Products
Part of the requirements to be a Green Screened roofer is to offer eco-friendly products. We do this in several ways. Both metal and tile roofing have very low environmental impact. Both are 100% recyclable when their useful life is over and have a very long life. Metal roofing is available in many colors classified as cool roofing. Cool roofing reflects back more of the sun’s heat than traditional roofing and lowers your energy usage. Tile roofing’s insulative properties naturally help reduce energy usage.
GAF’s Timberline® Cool Series Shingles are a great way to lower your cooling costs by up to 15%. These shingles come in three colors – Antique Slate, Barkwood, and Weathered Wood. Because of their reflective properties your attic temperature will be cooler than it would be with traditional asphalt shingles. CertainTeed offers their Landmark Solaris® Platinum series which have been rated by the Cool Roof Rating council. Costal Tan, Sierra Bluff, and Santa Fe Blend meet the Energy Star® standards with an industry leading solar reflectance of over 40%.
Eco-Friendly Roofing Practices
There aren’t many Orlando roofers who take the time and effort to educate homeowners on the benefits of green roofing. Florida residents have the most to gain by choosing a green roofing product. We are happy to spend time with any homeowner to help them understand that the slightly higher initial investment has a positive ROI. Just let us know what questions you have, what your average utility bill is and we’ll help you understand the savings a green roofing product could give you over a year.
We also make sure that every roof has proper ventilation and insulation. Both cut down on utility costs, even when a traditional roofing material is chosen. Recycling is the other eco-friendly practice we’ve adopted. It takes time and effort to recycle metal roofing and the other products we can recycle but we do it. We know all these little steps add up and ultimately benefit the environment.
