Nowadays, more and more people consider both functionality and sustainability when choosing the type of roof they want for their building or home, and for good reason, too. Luckily, there are a number of options you should consider.
Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a type of rubber roofing material that is applied in a single layer. It has been around for at least 40 years now and still serves as a cost-efficient alternative, especially for commercial properties. Recycled rubber can be used for manufacturing EPDM, which is why it is considered a sustainable roofing option.
Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) is another type of rubber roofing option that is applied in single layer, just as EPDM is. TPO is suitable for flat and low-sloped roofs alike. With proper maintenance, TPO roofs can last for up to 20 years, and the material is also considered recyclable. To harness the full benefits of having a rubber roof, make sure to have one installed by a known commercial roofing services provider like Hometown Contractors Roofing.
White roofing options have been becoming more popular as of late. Lighter-colored roofs are generally regarded as better for saving energy – and, white roofs, even more so. White roofing is expected to reflect more light and keep heat from penetrating a building or home.
