Advances in roof technology

Roofing has come a long way in recent years as with each passing day more advanced materials are being developed and new technologies are replacing the old and traditional mechanization. We at Groom and Co feel that it is essential to stay up-to-date with these advances. We have always focused on keeping up on technological and architectural advances in roofing.

Let’s take a closer look at the top advances in roof technology :

Cool Roofs: These types of roofs reflects more sunlight and absorbs less amount of heat. These roofs not only increase energy efficiency, but also fights the heat island effect that makes many cities warmer and decreases local air quality. Especially in summers, these roofs prevent sunlight and high temperatures from pricking inside the home.

Flat roof membranes: These roofs are usually made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) which are best for optimal weatherproofing during rainy seasons.

Roof Insulation: Roof insulation accomplishes higher R-values accompanied by polymetric blends and glass fiber to increase energy efficiency. This type of insulated roofs are durable and rigid which helps prevent leaks and water damage. It also solves the heating and cooling problems inside homes or working areas.

Fireproof roofing: This kind of roofs make use of materials such as shingles, shakes, slate, tile, volcanic rocks and metals to resist fire.

Green Roofs: The roofing sector is focusing upon to implement green and eco-friendly solutions. They are aiming towards Saving energy and a cleaner environment. The roofs are being made up of recyclable materials in order to save resources like solar roofs.

Synthetic roofs: Common roofing materials like Terracotta and slates are being replaced by synthetic tiles and stones as these are more durable, lighter and less expensive. Not only this, but synthetic roofs also works well with green and sustainable roofs.
