3 Ways to Create a Green Roof

We’re more environmentally aware than ever before, but we often don’t know how to contribute to a healthier environment through our actions outside the basics, like recycling and selecting recyclable products. If you’re interested in supporting the health of the environment with your home, there are a few things you can do with your roof alone that can help.
Environmentally Friendly Roofing

Select Recycled or Recyclable Material

Metal roofing, including aluminum, copper, and steel can provide you the coverage and support you need while also offering a highly recyclable material once you decide to update your roof in the future.

Install Solar Paneling

This can be expensive, but it’s one of the most progressive things you can do support the environment. While it doesn’t provide much in terms of actual roofing material, it helps you use less energy from your supplier.

Grow a Green Roof

If interested in creating something truly green, consider growing a garden or lawn on your actual roof. All you need to get started is a waterproof membrane, the growing medium, and the vegetation you plan on growing. Learn more about this from "What is a Green Roof?"
