Eco-Friendly Options for Windows, Siding, Roofing & Doors


Northern Virginia is a beautiful place to call home, and at Tri County, we’re committed to helping you create a comfortable and stylish living space while minimizing your environmental impact. Sustainable home improvement is a growing trend, and for good reason. It’s about making smart choices that benefit both your home and the planet.

At Tri County, we offer a variety of eco-friendly options for windows, siding, roofing, and doors that can help you achieve a sustainable home:

Energy-Efficient Windows
Upgrading to energy-efficient windows can significantly improve your home’s comfort and environmental impact. Look for windows with the ENERGY STAR® label, which signifies they meet strict energy-saving criteria. These windows typically have double-paned or even triple-paned glass for superior insulation, and a low-emissivity (Low-E) coating that reflects heat while allowing light to pass through. In addition to the energy benefits, consider opting for windows made from recycled materials. Many manufacturers offer high-quality vinyl windows with a substantial percentage of recycled content, making your windows eco-friendly from start to finish.

Sustainable Siding
When it comes to sustainable siding options, both fiber cement and metal siding offer distinct advantages. Fiber cement siding is a great eco-friendly choice because it’s not only durable and resistant to fire and insects, but it’s also often made with recycled materials. Metal siding, particularly aluminum and steel, is another long-lasting option with a high recycled content. An added benefit of metal siding is its ability to reflect heat, which can help lower your cooling costs during the summer months.

Eco-Conscious Roofing
Selecting an eco-conscious roof doesn’t mean sacrificing quality or durability. Metal roofs, particularly those crafted from recycled steel or aluminum, are a fantastic option. They’re incredibly long-lasting and reflect sunlight which translates to a cooler home during the summer months. Even traditional asphalt shingle options are becoming more eco-friendly. Look for shingles with a high recycled asphalt content (RAC) rating to reduce your environmental impact without compromising on performance.

Energy-Saving Doors
Don’t underestimate the impact your doors can have on your home’s energy efficiency. Steel entry doors are a perfect choice for durability and thermal performance. They offer superior insulation, significantly reducing heat transfer and improving your home’s overall comfort. For patio doors, consider opting for ENERGY STAR® certified options. These doors often feature Low-E glass with a special coating that reflects heat while allowing light to pass through. Additionally, advanced insulation within the door frame helps reduce heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter, contributing to a more energy-efficient home.
