If you want to reduce your impact on the environment, go green with your roof. You may not know this, but your roof is large contributor to your home’s total energy expenses. When sunlight hits your roof, it heats up your attic. This leads to a warmer home, and your air conditioning has to work harder to maintain a constant comfortable temperature. This consumes more energy, resulting in you paying more bills and the power plants burning more fossil fuel.
Lowering your energy consumption helps everybody. If you want to keep your attic cool and your costs down, your professional roofing contractors in Byram Township, NJ, Up and Above Contractors, is here to help. We can install GAF Timberline® Cool Series shingles to your home.
