Before hiring a roofing contractor, you should ask what they plan to do with the old materials they are replacing. If you care about the environment, then take the initiative to ensure you are hiring a responsible roofer.
Now there is a whole new world of recycled roofing materials that we can use to put in a new roof. No longer is our recycling abilities restricted to the disposing of the old materials. We can actually install a roof made of all recycled material. Recycled roofing materials are available in all sorts of options. You can get wood shingles from reclaimed lumber, asphalt shingles made of recycled rubber, and shingles made of recycled plastics and other materials.
The roofing material made of plastic, rubber, and wood are extremely durable and you can get them in a variety of styles made to look like traditional asphalt, concrete, wood, and even clay. These are also very affordable at about $7 to $10 per square foot and can last up to 50 years.
With all the eco friendly roofing options available, it makes it much easier to have a beautiful roof, at an affordable cost, that is environmentally friendly. Even if you do not want to use the recycled materials for your new roofing, you can ensure you dispose of the old roofing material responsibly so someone else can repurpose it.
