Improve the Eco-Friendliness of Your Home with Thermal Roof Coating

The environment, sustainability, climate change and the issues around non-renewable energy supply are all hot topics of debate at the moment. Adding fire to the whole issue are the recent price hikes from energy supply, as well as the resulting political comments.

But what does all mean to the ‘ordinary’ homeowners? It means that more and more of us are looking to make our homes as eco-friendly and warm as we possibly can.

So, what does it mean to be eco-friendly?

The term’ eco’ refers to our impact on the environment, becoming a by-word for the impact we make, such as carbon footprints and our perceived ‘friendliness’ to the natural environment around us. We all impact on the environment every second of every day, from the carbon dioxide we breathe out to every time we make a journey in the car, or on the train or bus.

Some of these activities impact are minimal whilst other things we do have a larger, unsustainable impact on the environment – like our use of non-renewable energy resources.

If we live in draughty, cold homes, in our effort to make them warmer and more pleasant, we use more of these precious resources. Upgrading your home, making it more energy efficient is one way of improving the eco-friendliness of your home.

And so, how do you make your home an eco-friendly one?

There are many ways of doing this, from making sure that you have thick enough insulation in the loft space to cavity wall insulation, double glazed windows and doors to thermal roof coating.

Have you heard of thermal roof coating?

This is a versatile roof coating that can be applied to all manner of roofing material, as well as all shapes, sizes and styles. But not only that, it also comes in a variety of colours and so if you want the coating to match your current roof colour, then this is no problem either.

As well improving the eco-friendliness of your home, there are many benefits to thermal roof coatings:
