Cool roofs minimize the heat that is absorbed from the sun onto your roofing materials and helps to keep your home more comfortable and reduces energy consumption. Cool roofs are usually lighter in color and use reflective coatings or gravel mixture to make them more energy-efficient and durable. Their popularity is increasing with homeowners all over the country.
One out of five homes still have this type of roofing material, but do not let that mislead you: there are several styles, colors, and choices available including ones that mimic traditional hand-cut cedar shake. These specialty and designer asphalt shingles are referred to as architectural shingles and have increased in popularity over the past several years. An Oak Harbor Roofer will help you decide what is best for your home and budget.
A green roof is typically pretty easy to spot because it will have plants or vegetation growing on it. They consist of multiple layers that include a membrane that is waterproof, dirt, soil, protective fabric, and foliage. They are sustainable for the environment, make great use of space in crowded urban areas, and add a barrier of insulation to your structure.
Darker color shingles used to be the preferred color choices for homeowners, but the times are evolving. Lighter and cooler colors like soft greens, greys, and earth tones are gaining more popularity every year. Even though they are not as effective as cool roofing materials, they are still more efficient than their darker counterparts, especially in regions with a lot of sunshine and elevation that is closer to the sun.
Have fun with your roof, it does not need to be boring. The leading roofing materials companies have more designs, styles, textures, and a plethora of colors today than ever before! The combined bonus of advanced technology, architectural depth, AND even better... you will not be relinquishing durability and dependability for enhanced style.
