The Heads Up on Green Roofing
About 75% of American homes are roofed with disposable asphalt shingles even though asphalt has been proven to have lower insulative value and a shorter lifespan than green roofing materials. In addition, asphalt shingles are made from petroleum products known to release pollutants during application and are often not recyclable due to the layer of fiberglass between the asphalt minerals.
Summit Green Solutions provides an extensive array of roofing products ranging from affordable stone-coated metal to elegant natural slate. Each of these “durable” materials are attractively designed, energy efficient, sustainable, and proven to last much longer than asphalt shingles. Their eco-friendly attributes can include Energy Star ratings, recycled content, close proximity to their manufacturing location, high reflectivity/emissivity and energy efficient roof ventilation systems.
Summit Green Solutions can work with you to determine the appropriate green roofing solution for your home.
