Roofing and the Environment Hand in Hand – Striving For “Green Options”
As a thriving company that has been providing expert commercial and residential roofing services around the Puget Sound for over 13 years, we realize the responsibility we have been given in terms of incorporating environmentally conscious practices into our daily repertoire. For this purpose, we are a Master Elite™ partner with GAF manufacturing, a company that provides many energy-saving “Green” roofing solutions. The company walks the talk in their operations and generates minimal scrap waste that is all recycled to facilitate community building projects such as the paving of roads. Additionally, GAF has a myriad of environmentally conscious products to choose from.
Your “Greatest Assets in Going Green.”
The first of these is their Asphalt Roofing System that allows your roof system to “breathe,” meaning that it emits stale air coming from within and guards from the moisture buildup that can substantially raise energy costs and reduce roof life if ignored. The system comes equipped with the readiness for solar panels, low needs for reoccurring maintenance and recyclability options. The asphalt shingle roofing system can quite literally be your “greatest asset in going green.” The GAF Advanced Protection® Shingles provide superior protection while using diminishing numbers of scarce natural resources, but it is the company’s Timberline® Cool Series shingles that are the most environmentally friendly. The reflective shingles are specially designed to reflect sunlight and keep your home cooler in the summer while raising the possibility of saving 7-15% of total cooling costs, depending on location, build and climate. The company’s dedication to going green doesn’t stop there. Roof deck protection from GAF uses its superior construction and technology to protect from wind-driven rain that can immerse your insulation and lower its energy efficiency. In particular, GAF’s Tiger Paw™ Roof Deck protection even “wicks” (and releases) water that can build up inside your attic. A fact that property owners may not be aware of is that in order to be energy efficient, your attic needs exhaust ventilation. Such Cobra® brand vents allow excess heat and moisture to release from your attic. During the summer time, they allow hot air to escape before it accumulates and raises the potential for damage, as well as help lower moisture content that leads to roof decay. Lastly, GAF’s Green Machine™ line includes the world’s first solar powered ridge vent designed to eliminate harmful heat and moisture and as has been the theme of their products, help reduce your energy costs.
