Fabulous Green Roofing

Innovative & Stylish Green Roofing Products
When it comes time to choosing a new roof, some key considerations are the type of material, style, color and of course, cost. There are many different types of roofing materials available including many green products that have been ENERGY STAR® rated and feature recycled content.

Here is a list of the most popular roofing materials so you can choose the right roof for your new home:

Wood shingles and shakes: Wood shingles and shakes can be purchased in cedar (most expensive), redwood, southern pine and other woods. Wood shingles are cut by machine, while wood shakes are handmade and have a rougher look. Since most wood shingles and shakes only have Class C fire ratings or no ratings at all, be sure to check your local building codes before deciding on this type of roofing.
