Green Roofing is looked at in a couple of different ways. In some circles the term “Green Roofing” means “vegetative roof.” The fact of the matter though is that Green Roofing is referring to a roofing system that is sustainable. In other words, Green Roofing provides the long-term environmental benefits that homeowners are looking for today. When you hear the term you will know that Green Roofing means:
- A Cooler Roof
- A Lightweight Roof
- A Solar Ready Roof
- A Roof that Uses Environmentally Friendly Processes
- A Roof that can Help You Obtain Credits Towards the US Green Building Council’s LEED and LEED-EB certification.

Owens Corning has created a Green Roofing shingle called “Duration.” These are solar reflective shingles that were created for beauty and energy efficiency. These shingles reflect solar energy, helping decrease the amount of heat transferred to a home’s interior – and the amount of air conditioning needed to keep it comfortable.
