Green Roofs

Green Roofs

With energy costs literally soaring though the roof, it’s important that your home is equipped with an energy effective green roof. More than half of your home’s energy costs are from heating and cooling. A lot of your home's energy from heating and cooling is lost directly through your roof. Without proper insulation, your energy bills can be sky high. Sustainable green roofing solutions such as energy efficient shingles, insulation, and ventilation, all helps to reduce the energy usage of your home over its lifetime and will save you money. Thanks to modern reflective technology, homeowners can join the green revolution with energy efficient roofing shingles. These reflective technologies can help to reduce temperatures in attics and buildings, and help save on air conditioning costs. Construction Unlimited provides green roofs throughout Charleston WV, Huntington WV, Raleigh NC, Orlando FL, and the surrounding communities throughout West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, North Carolina, and Florida.

ADVANTAGES OF GREEN ROOFS

Reduce Energy Use

A cool roof transfers less heat to the building below, so the building stays cooler and uses less energy for air conditioning.

Reduce Air Pollution & Greenhouse Gas Emissions

By lowering energy use, cool roofs decrease the production of associated air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Improve Health & Comfort

Cool roofs can reduce air temperatures inside buildings with and without air conditioning, helping to prevent heat-related illnesses and deaths.

WHAT IS A COOL ROOF?

A cool roof is a roofing system that delivers higher solar reflectance (the ability to reflect the visible, infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of the sun, reducing heat transfer to the building) and higher thermal emittance (the ability to radiate absorbed, or non-reflected solar energy) than standard designed roofing products. Historically, cool roofs have been either white or some other lighter shade color. However, that dynamic has changed in recent years with the development of residential cool roof products like Landmark Solaris™ and Presidential Solaris™ from CertainTeed that can achieve Energy Star® qualified levels of solar reflectivity even in dark, rich hues. Cool roofs can also enhance roof durability and reduce both building cooling loads and the urban heat island effect.
