Our friends at Angie’s List (where we just happen to have some of the best roof and gutter contractor ratings in the Portland area) allowed us to share these
8 great Tips for a Green Home.
We would include the following tips of our own (the graphics on their tips are much cooler, though:)
- Consider solar reflective roofing options when it is time to replace you roof. Cooling costs and energy usage can be greatly reduced, even in cloudy Portland.
- A well maintained roof (ie, one that gets periodic roof cleaning) keeps your old roof out of the landfill for much longer.
- Consider roof treatments that avoid metallic components. Our proprietary line of “Guard” treatments (CompGuard, TileGuard and CedarGuard) and among the most environmentally compatible roof treatments available.
- Clean gutters, or even better protected gutters (learn more here), keep much organic debris from filtering into the city sewer system.
