{Energy Efficient GREEN Roofing Arrived}

It takes quite some time for getting the photos and all the information for writing these posts about our home's transformation. Here I will show you that on April 18, right before we left for our Curaçao vacation, our Interlock Energy Efficient GREEN Roofing Arrived!
JIT = Just In Time...
Our cat supervisor Spicy girl keeps an eye on those pallets!
To the right you can also see our 'Golden Live Oak 'Quercus Virginiana Grand View Gold'.
So how did we find Interlock Roofing?
After we had water leaking into our basement in February, we decided it would be time to do something about our roof and gutters.
The aging shingles did clog up our gutters as the sand-sized minerals in it, did wash down the roof with heavy rains. Over the years this had worn off and it made the gutters spill over when we had heavy rain.
Searching the Internet I found this Canadian company, in Delta BC. That is the Province of British Columbia where our Liz is also born so we both know that good things come from Canada. 
The name of the company is Interlock Metal Roofing a Manufacturer of Lifetime Roofing Systems. Never re-roof again.
They are one of North America's largest metal roofing manufacturers, with over 12 distribution centers in Canada and the United States.
When we contacted their head office in Delta, BC Canada, we got a reply from their Georgia representative.
Sure, such an investment one does not make over night. 
After we studied very thoroughly and really LOVED this Energy Efficient GREEN Roofing; we went ahead and ordered it.
Reduce your Carbon Footprint, now and for a lifetime - that sentence appealed to us!
Energy Efficient GREEN Roofing link to above page
Interlock® Roofing is an Energy Star® Partner
We figured that by investing into a life-time roof, that could save us 25% in Energy Costs is a lot more return on investment than anything else at this time with our downward economy.
On the same page it did explain all the different types of aluminum roof and giving their Reflectance.
We went for Slate in Aged Copper and you can see below what that would do for us.
This Aluminum Aged Copper surface reflects 55% of sunlight and has a solar reflectance of 0.55 initially and 0.34 after 3 years.
We did select Interlock® Aluminum Slate in Aged Copper, top left as one of nine colors available.
That would look best like what we started out with in November of 1990 with our shingle roof, as seen in my blog post about Our Home on March 24 of 2013 (see link below).
Our fiberglass window boxes had come off the walls for the painters to pressure wash the home.
Here they hold the tarp in place for protecting more Interlock material for the roof.
Next day we had to fly to Miami so it was a good feeling it had arrived all the way from New England.
Our cat-girl Spicy is keeping watch!
In the back again our stunning Quercus Virginiana Grand View Gold!
Stay tuned for the follow up...

  13. Hello Mariette, I think you made a wise choice, not only for efficiency but also for comfort. In semi-tropical Taiwan, I am surprised how many roofs are black and energy-absorbing. In the rooms of my apartment that I don't use, the temperature can rise to over 120F in the summer, which the air conditioner has to overcome in the other rooms. I am sure that a reflective roof would help a great deal.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Guss efficiency and comfort often walk hand in hand. Oh, if one starts looking 'UP' it is amazing how many wrong roofs people have added. Wrong in color and wrong in material. Time will tell with our electricity bills if it makes a big difference. Not every summer is equal. This summer is like a wet monsoon... The air condition runs a lot for moisture removal alone this summer. But in general the air-conditioning runs a lot less already.
      Thanks for your visit and wishing you a nice day.

      Infatti questo ha chiesto un sacco di preparazione e soprattutto il lavoro per mio marito Pieter. Taglio di zoppica dell'albero di 'live' quercia e anche l'albero davanti alla nostra casa.

      Kitty supervisors are the best; they LOVE their home and garden and always watch out for anything out of place or different. So far we have enjoyed our 'green' and eco-friendly roof. It got quite a test with all the tropical rains we got. We feel more like living again in Indonesia than in Georgia...

  25. Dear Mariette, you have been very thoughtful in your choice of roofing, and it is a beautiful choice! It is a big decision to choose a material for the most important part of a home - the very roof over your head! How nice of your Spicey Girl to supervise and she does look lovely with your beautiful golden oak. I look forward to seeing the end results! Hugs xoxo

      Just got back from the Vet, with Spicy girl and Barty boy... It was a big decision but so far so good. With our excessive rain we had no more water coming into the basement thanks to clean gutters with a better roof. No more sand washing down from the old shingles...
