A NEW ROOFING TECHNOLOGY IN OKLAHOMA CITY THAT COULD SAVE THE PLANET
You know that our main mission is improving our environment through small steps in building and constructing. What really annoys us that in the 21st century, people still don’ realize the importance of the environment. It is our only home. If we destroy it, what you think is your home will also be gone. So why are we doing it? Why can’t we open our eyes to the good stuff that 21st century brought instead of harmful ones? We find one o the biggest innovations in the modern times to be green technologies and green building. This type of building means using environmentally acceptable materials to build something that you would usually build with toxic materials. We recently got into contact with a very high-quality roofing company from Oklahoma City. Choice Solutions or rather Choice Roofs taught us and represented to us a brand new technology. They understood our mission, our tools, and our goals. Thanks to them, we are here today to explain you a new method of roofing. Roofs are the most important construction components of your house and if we have a chance of improving those we are on a good way. This technology is called green roofing. It offers you the best of both worlds; quality construction and helping the nature. If you want to learn more just like we wanted, keep reading!
Why is this method special?
There are many roofing options you can go with. So why choose green roofing? The main difference between any other roofing technology and green roofing is the structure. A green roof has a very complicated structure that consists of more than one layer. This alone makes it more valuable than let’s say asphalt or concrete tiles. The layers are all equally important and connected one to another. If one doesn’t do the job, the rest also can’t function. We will start with the layer attached to the roof base. That is a waterproof barrier or a membrane. This membrane is not biodegradable, so it guarantees you safety and dry home. On top of that, roofers put fabric that has a crucial role. It protects the drainage system from getting psychically damaged in in the process of installing or repair the roof. The drainage system plays a very significant role in the whole structure of the green roof. It makes sure that the excess water goes away while providing vegetation with enough water to survive. Over the system, there is fabric that prevents engineered soil to clog it. An engineered soil is put to keep the vegetation fresh and provided with minerals and nutrients it needs to survive. And of course, the top layer- vegetation. These plants make your house property look amazing while doing so much for the environment!
The good stuff that comes with green roofing
People have one thing in common; being greedy. It is not something we should hide; we are just like that. Very few people succeed at escaping that part of themselves. Most of us still find things that matter to us most important. That is why we will start by saying how you can benefit from this. A green roof is a big starting expense; we are not going to lie. However, it can save you a lot of money if you look at it in the long term. Vegetation on top of your roof acts as an isolator. Meaning that it will isolate you from the excessive heat as well from the cold. This automatically means that your air conditioning and heating bills will be minimized. Next, you will not have to repair it at all. While asphalt shingles need to be repaired every few and then, green roofing does not have that requirement. And let’s not forget that you will add value to your property and profit when you sell it. Okay. Now we covered that. Let’s talk nature. The green roof can reduce carbon monoxide in the air and heat island effect. Those are currently considered to be one of the biggest environmental problems society has. It has the ability of neutralizing acid rain which will help save a lot of green surfaces around the country.
