We at Ben Hill Roofing are not only committed to being environmentally conscious about the scrap removed from every roofing project, but we actively help our customers understand the longer-lasting and eco-friendly alternatives to traditional commercial roofing materials.
Over the past few years, the term “green roof” has become synonymous with any environmentally friendly roofing products. Green roofs are the new buzz word in the roofing industry. Consumers are making environmentally conscious decisions to choose “green” roofing systems that will have a positive effect on their lives and on the planet.
The numbers are staggering; with asphalt roofing shingles constituting nearly two-thirds of the roofing market for both new homes and roof replacements. Annually, roof installation generates an estimated 7 to 10 million tons of shingle tear-off waste and installation scrap. More than 60 manufacturing plants across the U.S. generate another 750,000 to 1 million tons of manufacturing shingle scrap. (EPA)
Here are some of the eco-friendly, “green roof” options:
- Synthetic Slate Roofing
- Wood Shake Shingles
- Clay Tile Roofing
- Reflective Roof Coatings
