The Most Environmentally-Friendly Roofing Materials

Aug 15, 2021Blog, Roofing

Sometimes, we don’t realize how much of an impact our everyday actions have on the environment. From driving cars to eating out of plastic containers, these seemingly small tasks can all make a difference and need to be taken into account when considering the size of one’s carbon footprint.

One of the ways you can reduce the size of your carbon footprint is by opting for a more environmentally friendly roof. There are many options available on the market, and just because it’s saving the environment, it doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on its visual appeal or durability.

If you’re looking for a roof that’s both beautiful and energy-efficient, then give BRAX Roofing a call today. We specialize in installing environmentally friendly rooftops for homes in the Fairfax area. Call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our roofing experts.

 

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is by far the most environmentally-friendly roofing option available on the market today. Metal roofing panels act as great reflectors of UV rays. As a result, you’ll end up spending less on air-conditioning as the sun’s rays are reflected off your roof, without the absorption of any heat, making metal roofing an incredibly energy-efficient roofing option. Metal roofing is also primarily made from recycled metal, and once your roof has reached the end of its lifespan, it can be recycled once again.

 

Slate Roofing

Slate roofing is one of the best sustainable solutions for homeowners. Not only does it last for a century or more without needing to be replaced, but slate roofs are also made from natural rock and stone materials that don’t emit any harmful gases when manufactured or recycled. This incredibly long-lasting roofing material also adds fantastic curb appeal to any home design.

 

Cedar Roofing

Most cedar roofing shingles and shakes are sourced from sustainable cedarwood harvesters, making it a more environmentally-friendly roofing option. They are also incredibly thermal resistant, which means you’ll save a lot more energy when heating or cooling your home. Old or weakened shingles can also be recycled into mulch for your garden.
