Where Earth Meets Rooftop

Environmental impact is a major consideration in all areas, home-improvement being one of them. Embracing the trend, many an Orange County roofer is blending eco-friendliness with professional services. Earth meets rooftop in perfect harmony.

It doesn’t matter if contractors are doing a roof repair or full-scale replacement. More and more roofing professionals are taking major steps in a positive environmental direction. Happily, their commitment is paying off nicely. Thanks in part to their efforts, homes are becoming more energy-efficient and less environmentally intrusive. These benefits, of course, are accruing to homeowners in many ways.

When it comes to energy efficiency, an Orange County roofing company often relies on two proven options. The first focuses on roofing materials, the most popular being the coated shingle. As its name implies, this type of shingle features a special, energy-efficient covering. In this case, the covering is a layer of sunlight-reflecting granules. By deflecting solar rays away from the rooftop, the granules significantly reduce heat intrusion. Cooler homes are the natural result.

An Orange County roofer also may utilize a second basic option – the installation of a solar energy system. The energy-saving capacity of solar panels is well-known. With panel performance steadily improving, more and more homeowners are embracing the technology.

Choosing solar panels or energy-efficient shingles requires considerable evaluation. Every homeowner’s situation is different. Which is why it makes sense to consult a local professional who understands your community and personal needs. If you hang your hat in Laguna Beach, for instance, ask a Laguna Beach roofer about your options. It’s the best route to a sound, sensible decision.

5 Advantages of Home Solar Systems

solar systemConsidering installing a solar system in your home? As solar panels become more affordable and more efficient, more and more California homeowners are considering installing them. When you work with professional solar panel installers, you can get solar panels that look great and give your home the energy it needs to keep running.

If you’re on the fence about installing solar panels in your home, just consider these five huge advantages of solar power:

1.They can power your entire home

It used to be that solar panels weren’t efficient enough to power your whole home. They could just be used to offset your power needs. Now, even a home with relatively little roof real estate can be powered entirely by solar panels. In fact, tens of thousands of US homes in remote areas are powered exclusively by solar these days!

Even in your home that’s part of the national power grid, you can use solar to exclusively provide your home’s energy needs. This means that you can not only save money on your monthly electric bill, but that you might also be able to get an extra check from the electric company. To meet ever-increasing demands for power, some electric companies today will actually pay consumers who put more energy into the grid than they use!
