Posted by Jeff Childers, Master Roofer, and owner of Aquashield Roofing Corporation. Eco-friendly roofing materials can be just as durable and affordable as other roofing supplies. Many of our customers go the environmentally friendly route and are always surprised on how affordable it can really be! As there are many different supplies to chose from a few choices are the White Roof (aka Cool Roof), Standing-Seam Metal Roof, Wood Shake, and Slate or Clay. A White roof is named the cool roof for being so cost proficient. While keeping your home cool it also saves you money by not running A/C as much. Any roof system that has a white-colored irrespective is named a White Roof. The Standing-Seam Metal Roof is a popular option because it not only has a 50 year lifetime durability, it also is 100% recyclable making it a great eco-friendly material.
