One of the biggest changes to occur in recent times is that people aren’t just thinking about themselves. Society has grown increasingly aware of the damage being caused to the earth, and millions are eager to take positive steps towards protecting it. The family home serves as the most obvious starting point, and roofing plays a key role.
There are several ways to achieve your eco-friendly goals. First, you can choose recycled, natural, or eco-friendly materials for your roofing projects.
If you want to go even more hard-core some people are going as far as having green roofs, and when I say green, I literally mean green. People are choosing the option to have grass and/or gardens growing on their roof.
Embracing solar panels is another fantastic way to boost the eco-friendliness of a property. Not only does it help the environment. But, in the long-term, it will help your finances too.
First and foremost, a roof offers protection from the elements, but your roof also plays an integral role in your home. Apart from boosting the Eco-friendly aspects, better efficiency will help your wallet too.
Choosing the right materials will make a world of difference. It is important to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter without breaking the bank. At Mr. Roof we offer several different insulation options including recycled and Eco-friendly choices.

Insulation isn’t the only important aspect to keeping the temperature in your home regulated. Having good ventilation is arguably even more important. There are several things you can do to improve the ventilation in your home.
Roofing isn’t cheap. Worse still, their constant exposure to the elements means they’ll need repairing or replacement more often than other parts of your home. That is just one of the reasons why it is so important to use materials that last longer.
