With the effects of climate change and global warming on the rise, it’s about time for us to practice sustainability. It just gets hotter, especially in the urban areas, as more people move in and the energy use intensifies. Having green or white roofing can help improve the sustainability of urban areas which can combat the environmental issues that we face today.
Green roofs help decrease the amount of solar energy that enters the home since they provide shade and evaporative cooling on the rooftops, enabling homeowners to reduce energy usage necessary for cooling. They also have the capability to provide insulation in the winter by also reducing energy usage needed for building heating, as well as capture and absorb large amounts of water when it rains, managing runoff and reducing the amount of pollution brought to the rivers and beaches.
They add conventional beauty to urban landscapes while making a tangible statement on how buildings can have an environmental role even in the urban and commercialized areas. While some roofing contractors may only offer quality roof installations, JAM Roofing also offers more sustainable and environment-friendly roofing systems such as green roofs for homes.
White roofs are just roofs painted in white capable of reflecting sunlight away from their surface. Recent studies have shown that white-painted roofs are more efficient compared to green roofs at improving global temperatures and lowering energy costs. They counter the effects of global warming more effectively than green roofs because of their reflective capacity.
