Shencorp Inc specializes in all of your commercial roofing and roof coating needs in Winchester, Charlottesville, Waynesboro, and Richmond, VA. Shencorp believes that going green is no longer an option but a responsibility. Not only is environmentally sustainable roofs important, but they also help you save energy in the process. Saving that energy could help you spend less on your next utility bill. According to Energy Star,
“Americans spend about $40 billion annually to air condition buildings – sixth of all electricity generated in this country.”
With the right roofing system and even coating, you can save some of that money and help protect the earth as well. Here are 3 ways efficient commercial roofing can help you spend less.
1. Try Solar Reflective Coating
Our commercial roofing in Richmond, Hampton Roads, Fredericksburg, and Charlottesville reflect solar radiation, which only means more savings for you. Your facility’s energy use will decrease, which will lead to lower monthly utilities. The savings don’t stop there—you save up to 50% on the cost of replacing your roof by getting a protective coating. It’s a cost-effective way to make sure your roof stays in the right shape, before disaster strikes.
2. Go for a Cool Roof
When you choose a Single-ply membrane roof system, you’re getting a product that is lightweight, extremely affordable and offers an unparalleled flexibility most roofing systems can’t even come close to. In addition, we also carry single ply that can translate into Cool Roofs that can save you energy in the long run. According to the Department of Energy,
“Just as wearing light-colored clothing can help keep you cool on a sunny day, cool roofs material that is designed to reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a standard roof. Cool roofs can be made of a highly reflective type of paint, a sheet covering, or highly reflective tiles or shingles. Standard or dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150°F or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F cooler and save energy and money by using less air conditioning”
As hot as it gets in the summer, and in the coming spring, that can make a huge difference in your energy bill.
3. Re-Roof with Green Materials
Beyond coatings, we also help many commercial properties with re-roofing and roof repairs. When we need to replace a roof, we can do it in a sustainable way. Simply choosing the right material for your home can result in as much as a 30 percent decrease in your home’s energy needs. Whether that ends up being a metal,tile roof, asphalt, concrete or even wood roofing materials— we can help you make the right decision. We take the climate and the materials your home is made of in mind and can help you make a choice not only best for your facility but the environment.
