If you live in Texas, you know that spring is new roof season! Thanks to the overabundance of wind, hail, and severe weather the area experiences, it is almost inevitable that either you or someone you know will need a roof replacement, or at the very least, roof repairs.
For those of you who have recently been forced by mother nature to take the dive and put a new roof on your home, taking appropriate steps to ensure your new roof is as sustainable as possible will help save you money over time!
Here are a few tips from Roofing Wiz on how you can work with us to make your roof more sustainable!
INSTALL A LIGHT COLORED ROOF
Believe it or not, the color of shingle you choose for your homedoes more than just create aesthetically pleasing curb appeal. If chosen strategically, your shingle color can also make a big difference in the amount of energy it takes to heat or cool your home.
Light shingle colors such as light gray, light blue, or light green reflect light on your home instead of absorbing it like black, dark gray, or brown shingles. When light is reflected off of the roof instead of absorbed your house will not heat up as quickly in the summer. Therefore, you will reduce the amount of money you spend on energy bills over time!
CHOOSE STRONGER MATERIALS
Roofing materials come in a variety of grades, each of which offers different benefits. As a homeowner, the grade of materials you choose determines the potential lifespan of your new roof.
At Roofing Wiz, we offer roofs with lifespans ranging from 15-60 years.
To make your new roof as sustainable as possible, it is best to choose a roof with a longer lifespan. Because they are more durable, roofs with 30-60 year lifespans tend to withstand weather elements better and incur less damage over time. As a result, you are more likely to save money on repairs and be less likely to have to replace your roof again while you own your home.
TALK TO ROOFING WIZ ABOUT ADDITIONAL SUSTAINABLE OPTIONS
Once you have completed your FREE Roof Inspection with Roofing Wiz after a storm, we will help you get started on your roof replacement if we have identified the grounds to file a claim with your insurance company. As part of this process, there will be an opportunity for you to discuss roof material options and other sustainable roof features with our roofing experts.
In addition to sustainable shingles, you might also be able to install ridge vents, skylights, or other features that help improve your sustainability as well.
