When you think of investing in a roof replacement, you may consider benefits like improved curb appeal and better protection from the elements. A benefit you might not think of is enhanced energy efficiency.

Choosing the right roofing materials can mean shoring up your home’s energy efficiency, helping you to save on heating and cooling costs—but not all roofing contractors use energy-efficient shingles.

If saving money on energy bills and lowering your carbon footprint is important to you, consider the following options for energy-efficient roofing.

Owens Corning Asphalt Shingles

Owens Corning asphalt shingles are highly reviewed, and they offer many benefits to homeowners, including energy-efficient performance. Some of the brand’s shingles are ENERGY STAR-rated. ENERGY STAR-rated shingles help to lower energy costs by keeping the roof cooler. This makes it easier to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home in every season. As an added benefit, this decreases the load on your HVAC system, helping to extend the life of the system and reducing the need for repairs.

ContractingPRO is proud to offer these premium roofing shingles to homeowners throughout the Memphis area.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is an energy-efficient option that looks great and doesn’t require much maintenance. Today’s metal roofing is available in many styles and colors, so it’s easy to find an option that complements the other features of your Memphis home’s exterior.

Metal roofing does cost more than asphalt shingles, so it may not be the right choice if you’re looking for a budget-friendly roof replacement option.

Concrete Tile Roofing

Another energy-efficient roofing option is concrete tile roofing. Some homeowners love the distinct look of this roofing material, but it’s not the right choice for every home. Here’s why: Concrete tile roofing is quite heavy, and some homes are not able to bear the weight. Another consideration is that this material absorbs water, causing the color to fade.
