Having a structurally and functionally sound roof is crucial for any house - the lack of which can have a negative impact on living standards, not to mention attract the attention of authorities if it is not up to code. It should therefore come as no surprise for people to focus on the roof when buying or even remodeling their home to opt for energy-efficient solutions. Generally, green roofing utilizes a wide range of materials and techniques to make roofing that can actively lower energy costs, improve indoor quality of life and increase the overall property value. What really puts green roofing apart from other components, however, is the fact that it can be customized and adjusted in more ways than one can count - based on the homeowner’s preferences, type of home and of course, budget.
At a basic level, the materials used for roofing should be as eco-friendly as possible. Fortunately, there are many options available for people to choose a material that is to their liking in terms of appeal, aesthetics and affordability - from recycled metal to reused clay and from rubber shingles to other renewable materials. Those with a higher level of affordability can also opt for hybrid roof systems such as vegetative roofs or solar roofs, which serve a dual purpose and help create a new utility source. Those opting for more economical solutions can still gain advantages by installing rainwater harvesting systems and using the collected water for non-potable purposes.
