4 Commercial Improvements To Reduce Energy Loss And Add Resources To Your Business

Blog

If you are considering improvements to help reduce the costs of running your business, you may want to start by looking at the roof. Today, many commercial roofing improvements can help reduce energy loss and provide valuable renewable resources for your business. Here are some commercial roofing improvements that will help reduce energy loss and add resources to your business.

1. Add Natural Light With The Addition of Commercial Skylights

If you want your business to be more energy-efficient, then you will want to reduce the cost of lighting. In some areas of your business, automation may be a great solution. In addition to automation, you can also add more natural light to your business. On the roof of your business, consider installing skylights that can provide more natural light during sunlight hours to reduce conventional lighting costs.

2. Reduce Energy Loss With Modern Commercial Roofing Materials

There are also many commercial roofing materials that are available to improve the energy efficiency of your business. If you live in an area with hot summer weather, cool roofing systems with light-colored materials will help reduce the cost of operating AC and refrigeration systems during hot summer weather. In colder climates, you may want to consider spray foam roof coatings or insulation that help to prevent energy loss and provide more of a thermal barrier for your business.

3. Commercial Solar Roofing Options to Provide Renewable Electricity

Solar roofing materials have come a long way in recent years. Today, solar roofing can be integrated into the design of commercial roofing with membrane materials. This is a great way to improve your business and provide renewable electricity resources that can be used for things like lighting.

4. Solar Water Heaters to Provide Your Business With a Renewable Resource

Another renewable energy resource that can easily be added to your business is water heaters. Solar water heaters or collectors can be used by several different mechanical systems, including boilers, water heaters, and furnaces. This is also an affordable investment that you can make to add renewable energy to the roof of your business to help reduce operating costs.

These are some commercial roof improvements that will reduce energy loss and add resources to your business. If you are ready to start upgrading the roof of your business, contact a commercial roofing company like Green Gable Roofing and talk to them about some of these ideas.

Understanding Roof Damage and The Need For Repairs

I was concerned that a recent hailstorm might have caused damage to my roof. While inspecting my roof, the roofing contractor noted cracked shingles and granule loss from the impact of the hailstones. I didn't want my roof to start leaking, so I immediately had the damaged shingles replaced. Hi, my name is Troy Blakely and in this blog, you'll find out about the various types of shingle damage. You'll also learn how to determine if you need to have your roof repaired or replaced. I didn't know this information until the roofing contractor explained it to me. Then I decided that I would help other people by spreading the word. A damaged or leaky roof can cause expensive damage to the inside of your home and that's why it's so important to address roof issues as quickly as possible.
