Green Roofing and Ventilation

Many things have been written about green solutions for homes, and nowhere is it more important than for your roof.  A good roof can save you money on electricand gas bills, but it can also help save the environment—one roof at a time.

Here are several “green roofing ideas” for you to ponder:

"Cool Roofing" Products
Many new technologies reduce surface and attic temperatures, saving A/C costs and energy loss:

  • “Cool Series” Fiberglass Shingles also fight algae on steep roofs.

  • Passive Ventilation for attic and garage, ridge and soffit ventilation, O'Hagin Eyebrow Ventilation and solar powered attic fan keep hot air flowing out of the house.

  • White Cool Roof Coatings reduce surface and attic temperatures up to 50 degrees, and they extend the roof service life.

  • Solar Powered Attic Fan, and O’Hagin Eyebrow Vents includingTile Ridge and Soffit Ventilation plus off Ridge Ventilation.
  • Use of Radiant Barriers under shingles, wood and tile, inside attics and garages greatly reduce heat gain and loss all year round.

  • Radiant Blankets (perforated) for attic floors keep ceiling insulation from absorbing attic moisture and slow heat loss to the attic from insulation.

  • Energy Efficient Glass Skylights can reduce heat transfer up to 50%.

  • Cedar Breather for under wood shingles extends service life.

Installing A “Balanced Ventilation System” Reduces Utility Costs About 20%
We ventilate all types of roofing, including shake, shingle, tile, slate, composition shingles and low slope roofing, such as tar and gravel or torch applied. We’ve completed many course classes on the best products for your home’s ventilation, so we can advise you properly.

Balanced ventilation will help you save utility costs, so let us check out your ventilation system and help you come up with a solid plan.

Here’s what good ventilation will do for you:

  • Removes moisture in your attic during winter months, making insulation more efficient
  • Lowers heat load in your attic during the summer which reduces A/C costs and allows the house to cool down faster in the evening

Pest Proofing Of Roofs And Soffits
We have many years of roof installation and repairs to discourage and prevent squirrels, rats and raccoons from entering your home. We are not a licensed pest control contractor, but we can refer quality contractors for termites, insects and trapping, as needed.

Roof and Gutter Cleaning Services
Cleaning and preserving your roof can save on heating and cooling bills. Making sure the roof and gutters are not cluttered with leaves and other things will keep the roof in better shape, too. Cleaning your roof can be dangerous, and we will clean it as often as needed. Clean roofs and gutters are more fire safe.
