Green Materials to Consider for Use for Your New Roof

Green. This could simply be a color to you. However, to many people across the world, this is a whole movement – the green movement. The green movement is an initiative to support environmentally friendly products rather than products that pollute and/or harm the environment. This movement also pushes for recycling and reusing products. If you are looking to remodel or do some construction to your roof, you should consider using green materials. Not only are green materials beneficial to the environment, but the government also lets taxpayers use green construction as a tax write off.

An opportunity to reduce the environmental and health impacts of your home doesn’t come around often. Using green materials for your roof can save you money. The government is allowing homeowners who install alternative energy equipment (such as solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal heat pumps) take a credit of 30% of the total cost. Green materials and products can also help reduce maintenance and/or replacement costs over the life of the building. Why not save money while helping the environment?
