Investing in Energy-Saving Roofing Materials

By Stacy Mellete

Many homeowners are realizing the benefits of investing in energy-saving residential roofing in St. Petersburg FL. Sometimes called cool roofs, they come with reflective paint, tiles, shingles, or sheet coverings, which helps keep the amount of heat absorbed your roof low. This will keep you from relying too much on your HVAC units, leading to a livable home and reduced energy costs.

At Affordable Roofing Systems, we can provide you with roofing that offers these energy-saving benefits. Here are some of them:

GAF TruSlate®

Slate remains as one of the most beautiful, yet costly roofing materials available. That said, we offer GAF TruSlate, which has the qualities of genuine slate without its exorbitant price. They are incombustible and offer strong insulating properties, which can keep your interior comfortable. Additionally, they are great in shedding water and resist mold and algae growth, making them a low-maintenance roof.

GAF® Timberline® Cool Series Shingles

As a GAF Master Elite roofing contractor in Tampa FL, we can provide you with the brand’s popular Timberline roofing shingles. Aside from their superior resistance to blow-offs and severe weather conditions, they feature highly reflective surfaces that will surely reduce temperature in your attic. Furthermore, they come with the patented StainGuard® Protection to protect your home from unsightly blue-green algae.


This is another popular roofing choice due to its energy-saving properties. Like with most cool roofs, it features reflective surfaces that can reduce the amount of heat that builds up in your attic.

Apart from this insulating feature, metal roofs are also great in shedding water and resisting moisture damage.

Furthermore, they can withstand strong winds and severe weather conditions, making them a lasting roofing option.

Whether you are looking for highly insulated shingle roofs or residential roofing in St. Petersburg FL, you can rely on Affordable Roofing Systems to provide what you need. Let us help you achieve an energy-efficient home. Call us today at (813) 542-8462 for a FREE estimate.
