Tiles That Eco-Tie
Tiles roofing is available in different colors, allowing us to opt for a lighter shades which reduces the cost of cooling and hence the emission of all the green house gases with the air conditioners are turned on. These tiles shapes to help in ventilation, while the heavy mass of tiles roofing acts as an extra layer of thermal insulation. Tiles roofing can last up to 100 years and are recyclable.
Metal roofing is found to be robust and recyclable, having a shelf life of up to 50 years. Made from light reflective material, metal roofing allows less heat to enter our homes, thereby helping us to cut out on electricity bills.
Most of us are aware of the commonly used asphalt shingles, but only few know that shingles made of recycled materials are also available in the market. The materials range from plastic to wood and rubber that are not only durable but also add a classy look to our homes. They come with a fifty-year warranty.
