Eco-friendly roofing materials can be just as durable and affordable as other roofing supplies. Many of our customers go the environmentally friendly route and are always surprised on how affordable it can really be! As there are many different supplies to chose from a few choices are the White Roof (aka Cool Roof), Standing-Seam Metal Roof, Wood Shake, and Slate or Clay. A White roof is named the cool roof for being so cost proficient. While keeping your home cool it also saves you money by not running A/C as much. Any roof system that has a white-colored irrespective is named a White Roof. The Standing-Seam Metal Roof is a popular option because it not only has a 50 year lifetime durability, it also is 100% recyclable making it a great eco-friendly material. While it also does a great job at reflecting the sun it is fire resistant as well with slopes angled so all debris slides off easily. Another great option is Wood Shake. While being known for one of the first roofing types used in North America, One of the main reasons why wood shingles have become less popular is because of the risk associated with fire. Another reason is that as we become a greener, more environmentally friendly world, the idea of chopping down so many trees has become less attractive. With that said, there are those who still choose wood roofing as its natural beauty is hard to replace and because it does have some benefits. Wood Shake is one of the most natural looking roofs as it wears to a light gray over time. It also is quite simple to repair keeping cost low as well as a lifetime durability of 30+ years if well maintained.

If none of those options are for your liking you may want to try Slate or Clay style roofing materials. They can last up to 1 century and gives your home a classy historical look. Slate of course is stone that comes in many different styles. An average slate roof weighs between 800-1,000 Ibs per square making it a very heavy option. However it comes in a variety of colors to match anyone's taste.  Different sediments, as well as diverse compounds that might have found their way into the mix, are what give slate its color – hues commonly ranging from black, Grey and blue-Grey to shades of green, brick red and deep purple. Clay on the other hand is like a plastic molded into all different shapes and patterns that basically are divided among two categories: Flat tiles and Pantiles.

 

Pantiles are any tiles with a half-round or barrel-shaped form. As Flat Tiles are well...Flat. Making debris easily slide off the roof. Clay Roofs weigh in at about 800 Ibs per square making it not as heavy as slate but still a heavy option. They also come in many colors offering you light colored tiles to get the look of a White Roof or Cool Roof system. While there are many different types and styles of a roof, you should always do your research and seek out your options before your next re-roof.
