Take a look at that gorgeous house. Actually, take a look at that gorgeous roofing! We at Carlson Projects Inc. take pride in a roof well-laid, but an environmentally-conscious roofing material is the cherry on top of a good job.
Products will continue to innovate and become more eco-friendly, even roofing materials. These Classic Slate shingles from Inspire Roofing Products by Westlake are made from recycled plastic, but they look like natural slate. The roof is durable, affordable, and strong—with a wind rating of 110 mph—but it also helps to reduce the amount of plastic waste sent to landfills.
We, as contractors, love the chance to use recycled materials. If you weren’t aware already, here are a few benefits to making sure to use eco-friendly products.
Benefits of recycled materials
1. Landfill space
As stated above, using recycled materials reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and dropped in the ocean.
2. Conserves natural resources
Using recycled materials to create new products reduces the necessity to rely on limited natural resources.
3. Saves money
Oftentimes, recycled materials are cheaper to buy. However, even in cases where the recycled material is more expensive, the more that we buy it, the further we can drive down the price.
4. Green technology advancements
Showing a desire for environmentally-conscious products creates the need for more green technology.
Recycled plastic roofs are becoming more popular due to their strength and positive impact on our planet. We specialize in recycled roofing and have been installing these products for years. Recycled roofing is definitely the way to go!
