Are Roof Consultants Necessary When You Have Decided to Go Green with Your Roof?
If you are wondering why more and more residential and commercial building property owners refer to green roofing these days, you should definitely read this post! In it, our team of roof consultants has included some of the greatest benefits environmentally-friendly roofs have!
Green roofs provide a working model for sustainable development and living with strategies that reduce environmental impact, foster development community, and create financially profitable returns. In other words, the so called “rooftop farming” is an urban solution for creating community spaces, employment opportunities, and hyper-local sustenance.
Here are some rooftop opportunities which our roof consulting team recommends:
- Cool roof. This type of roof can reduce rooftop temperatures up to 90 °F, saving more than 10% of your annual air conditioning bills.
- Active/ passive rooftop covered with solar panels. Solar panels can actively lower your monthly energy bills by decreasing your reliance on external energy sources.
- Green roof (Garden rooftop village). With them, your heating and cooling insulation will improve up to 25%. Its lifespan is 2-3 times longer than any other type of roof, so that is really the best option to go for if you are looking for durability. They also have the power to remove airborne particulates and to absorb CO2. Not to mention that food-producing roofs reduce food miles and create revenue opportunities. In brief, green roofs can improve the aesthetics of a building and its market value up 15%..
