Investing in roof repair or roof replacement might not be the most obvious means of saving money or energy. But many general contracting companies can tell you that commercial roofing is one of the areas where a little extra thought can go a long way. Here’s what roofing contractors do to make sure that the roofs they build save money and energy. Roofing Materials Choosing the right residential roofing materials could result in a 30% decrease in your home’s energy needs. How is this possible? The energy absorbed or reflected by your roof will have a significant effect on your home’s overall energy consumption. Conventional roofing materials reflect only 5 to 15% of energy and heat from the sun, and absorb the remaining 85 to 95%. In the summer, all that heat and energy that is absorbed by your roof will drive up the heat in your house, requiring more energy and money to keep the house cool.However, if you have reflective metal roofing installed by one of the general contracting companies, up to 65% of energy will be reflected and your summer energy cooling costs can go down by 40%. This is achieved by using cool-colored metal roofing materials…
The end of the year is here and investors and customers are sprinting to be locked into the awesome tax credits and incentives that the federal government and state governments are offering. This is keeping the GreenForm Solar install crew busier than ever this year.

This customer is getting a new 10kw system which will eliminate about a $250 a month bill. In this customers situation, their return on investment should be about 3.8 years after federal incentives and grants received after consulting with the GreenForm finance department.

This customer in Leiper’s Fork, TN thought he had too much shade solar. This was not a problem for the GreenForm tree crew. Four trees later the customer is getting more than enough daily sunlight to make a system worth the investment. Although weather this week was not the GreenForm solar install team’s best friend, they still made great timing installing this steep pitch system. This system is as seen on the customers third floor faces the back of the property and will rarely be seen by anyone from the ground.
One of newest partners of GreenForm 2 in Nashville decided that the best way for him to represent the product was to own the product. This system should zero out most of the families $250 to $300 per month power bill. This beautiful home in Leapers Fork Tn, seemed to be impossible for an efficient system to be installed due to all the shading, but once the team actually took a look at it they saw that more than 30% of the roof was still usable roof space and that the owner would still receive enough sunlight to make the system worth the investment.
