Roofs – flat and uninteresting on the shed, garage or extension (and out of sight, out of mind above the house)....until they need repairing or replacing. This is when the financial costs of roof felt, timber and insulation rear their ugly heads, along with questions about their environmental impacts. So, which option to choose: felt and bitumen? Rubber? Or perhaps a green roof, which can be sustainable, longer-lasting and perhaps save maintenance and energy costs over time?
LEDs – or light-emitting diodes – can provide big cost and energy savings in the lighting of our homes, offices and public spaces.
