GREEN roofs : LIVING ROOF

Green Roof InstallerA green roof also referred to as a living roof is a commercial or residential roof that is partially or completely covered with vegetation which is planted over a waterproof membrane. Green roofs may also include additional layers consisting of a root barrier, drainage and irrigation systems.
 
Green roofs serve several purposes for a building. Green roofs absorb rainwater, provide insulation, create a habitat for wildlife, and help lower urban air temperatures. There are two types of green roofs: (1) Intensive roofs, which are thicker and support a wider variety of plants but are heavier requiring more maintenance: (2) Extensive roofs, which are covered in a light layer of vegetation, therefor lighter and requiring less maintenance.

cool roofs : not just white

Cool Roof InstallerA cool roof, also known as a white roof, is a commercial or residential roof that can deliver high solar reflectance and high thermal emissions. The benefits associated with cool roofs include reduced cooling energy bills, reduction in air pollution and greenhouse gas emission, and an overall improvement in our health, comfort, and planet.

While cool roofs gain energy savings in hot summers, they may increase heating energy load during cold winters. Net energy saving of cool roofs may vary depending on your specific climate. An energy efficiency study looking at this issue for air conditioned commercial buildings across the United States found that the summer cooling savings outweigh the winter heating penalty. This was true even in cold climates near the Canadian border which showed savings in both electricity and emissions. Without a proper maintenance program to keep the material clean, the energy savings of cool roofs can diminish over time due to degradation and soiling. Platinum Roofs, Inc. offers a maintenance program that will keep your roof functioning at its full capacity all year long.
 
While it is true that cool roofs are mostly associated with white roofs, they do come in a wide variety of colors and materials which are available for both commercial and residential properties. Today′s cool roof pigments allow metal roofing products to be ENERGY STAR rated in dark colors, even black. Dark color roofs aren't as reflective as whites or light colors, but can still save you energy over other paints.

ENERGY STAR ROOF

Energy Star RoofENERGY STAR qualified roof products reflect more of the sun's rays. This can lower roof surface temperature by up to 100°F, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a building, therefore, reducing energy bills.
 
ENERGY STAR qualified roof products reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce peak cooling demand by 10-15 percent. The Energy Savings that can be achieved with reflective roofing is highly dependent on facility design, insulation used, climatic conditions, building location, and building envelope efficiency.
