Doing your part to reduce your environmental impact is on the minds of many individuals and homeowners in these modern times. One of the best decisions you can make for your home to be more eco-friendly is to choose a roofing material that is more sustainable.
From the roofing experts at Landmark Exteriors, here are three sustainable roofing materials to consider for your home:
Homeowners love cedar roofs for their classic beauty, great durability, and many other impressive qualities. Wood is a sustainable source itself, making cedar roofing one of, if not the most eco-friendly option, assuming it is sustainably harvested. Because wood is a biodegradable material, it is fairly easy to dispose of and it won’t harm the environment. And for you and your home, cedar roofs help conserve energy because they provide natural insulation that reduces your energy bills.
Though metal roofing uses an energy-intensive process to produce, they are one of the best options if you’re looking for a sustainable roofing material that is also incredibly strong, long-lasting, and customizable. So what makes metal roofing eco-friendly? Metal roofs are often made using repurposed materials and can be easily recycled when they’ve reached their lifespan.
Slate tiles are very popular amongst homeowners for their beautiful appearance, but they are also the most durable roofing shingles, with some maintained slate roofs lasting for more than a century! Slate is a natural material from the earth and it lasts for a very long time, making it very environmentally friendly. Slate roofs also provide excellent thermal insulation, helping to reduce energy usage in your home.
