Some construction and building design experts have already predicted that gray will be the color of choice for rooftops in 2015. However, we suspect that one color will continue to be of top importance to most property owners—and that color is green. That may not necessarily be the shade they choose for their roofing materials or overall color scheme, but it will be significant in terms of saving money, which is a high priority for most homeowners and businesses.
Cutting down on utility costs is a major concern for most property owners. Conserving energy and reducing the structure’s carbon footprint is also important.
One very effective way to save some major green is by using spray foam roofing and coatings. This creates a strong, airtight barrier that prevents leaks which can allow air (and the heating or cooling that goes with it) to escape. In addition, a more durable roof can better withstand wind, snow and storm damage, which can further reduce the likelihood of costly property damage.
No matter what particular hue the property owner may have in mind, spray foam can help them think green. Intech Equipment & Supply is your best source for roofing equipment and spray foam supplies.
