4 Ways Your Roof Can Be Preventing Your Home From Being Eco-Friendly

Green living is a trend in 2020. However, parts of your home might be holding you back from this goal. Let us take a very close look at four ways your roof can be preventing your home from being eco-friendly.

 

Clogged gutter

 

To start things off, a clogged gutter is not good for the environment. This will accumulate leaves, bird droppings, and other debris and create a mess. Fortunately, it's very easy to unclog a gutter and restore the ecosystem. Moreover, it simply leads to better drainage on top of and around your home.

 

No solar panels

 

Next in line, your roof might not be suitable for solar panels. Roofs that are situated at steep angles can't really feature solar panels that collect the rays of the sun. Alternatively, you may have simply never gotten around to going solar. Either way, it's an obstacle to becoming completely eco-friendly.

 

Aging roof

 

In the grand scheme of things, an aging roof isn't friendly to the environment either. Older roofs are made of hazardous materials that don't mesh well with the greenery around your home. Consider a roof replacement service to switch to a greener roof. They can swap out your old roof for one that is sustainable for years to come. Not only will this be better for the environment, but a new roof looks amazing as well.

 

Eroding tiles

 

Last but not least, eroding tiles are not eco-friendly. Certain tiles don't disintegrate into the ground, and instead you're left with a pile of rubble. It's all about reducing your carbon footprint, and these tiles certainly don't help. Look to replace the tiles in some shape or form.

When all is said and done, these are a couple of ways your roof can be preventing your home from being eco-friendly. The roof is often an unlikely place that should not be overlooked. By addressing your roof, you can finally achieve green living.
