A Roof Replacement Will Reduce Costs, Save Energy

A recent study commissioned by ICF International has confirmed our message to customers – a roof replacement will reduce costs by making your building more energy-efficient! Findings from the recently published study include:

  •  A roof replacement is life-cycle economical under various conditions, even when subjected to higher incremental installation costs and discount rates.
  • Roof replacements support the transition to building electrification. They offer a significant reduction in fossil fuel use and overall improvement in energy efficiency.
  • Roof replacements support building performance standards and carbon emissions reduction goals by offering a cost-effective tool to help building owners reduce energy use and lower their carbon footprint.

According to, cutting-edge materials used for a roof replacement “can significantly decrease whole-building energy use, reducing associated costs and carbon emissions.” Depending on where your building is located, a re-roof can save you between $1.50 and $6.00 per square foot! Over time, this leads to a dramatic reduction in the energy used to heat and cool your building. A new roof will remove hundreds of pounds of potential carbon emissions from the atmosphere while keeping thousands of dollars in your pocket.
