  • Roofing

    Start at the top to protect your home from the elements. In addition to considering the aesthetics, longevity, and cost, you should also review the impact of a roofing material relative to ongoing energy costs. Different roofs have different thermal and reflective properties that can impact your heating and cooling bills. Since most roof materials last for decades, these energy impact factors are increasingly important given the rising energy costs. As an example, lighter colored materials reflect rather than absorb sunlight in the summer and then reduce your Air conditioning bills.
