Anything we can do to make our homes more environmentally friendly is a great benefit; not only to the planet, but also to your wallet, as environmentally-friendly options are usually far more cost-effective in the long run. At S&J Roofing Bath we understand the importance of energy-efficient roofing and can help you take your next steps towards making your home more sustainable.
Environmentally-friendly roofing materials
If you are in the process of replacing your roofing, then it is worth considering an environmentally-friendly material. These materials offer better insulation and fewer future repair costs.
Clay is an extremely eco-friendly material for your roof; it has an extremely long life and comes in a variety of colours, so lighter tiles can be chosen if you want to keep your home cool without using energy-intensive means such as air conditioning and fans.
A slate roof is a great way to give your home or business an authentic Bath feel. Much like clay, slate has longevity on its side. Slate has been used on homes for centuries; it is non-toxic, and energy efficient. You can also source recycled slate tiles to make your roof even more environmentally friendly.
This may come as a surprise, but rubber is an energy-efficient roofing material. Rubber roofing can be made from completely recyclable materials and is long-lasting, so is less likely to need future repairs and replacement. Rubber roofing is also highly durable and unlikely to be affected by adverse weather conditions and debris. Rubber roofing also won’t affect the aesthetic of your home as it comes in a range of colours and textures that can mimic traditional roofing materials.

The importance of roof repairs
If your roof starts to leak, you experience a draught, or you see any other evidence of roof deterioration, it is important to get these issues seen as quickly as possible. Smaller problems can get worse with passing weather conditions. Unfixed roofing issues can lead to mould on the inside of the building and an increased need for heating, resulting in increased energy costs and negative environmental impacts.
