Environmental Friendly Roofing Options
What type of “green” are you? Are you interested in the natural longevity of a natural resource product for your roof, or are you considerate of that which has a long shelf life because it was synthetically made to do so? Whichever your choice, it does not change the fact that the natural resources of our environment are becoming limited and it is becoming widely known that one day these resources may run out. Knowing that there is a growing segment of the population that has a passion for conserving the earth’s natural materials and/or a segment that does not believe in creating more waste, forces JB Roofing Systems to be aware and accountable of the types of products we use on roofs. Natural earth made materials, synthetic, or recyclable material, the choice is yours. People like you are beginning to pay attention to how the products they install in their homes effect the environment and are making more a conscious effort to choose options that reflect accountability to the environment. There are different materials that would be considered more eco-friendly such as rubber roofs, metal roofs, slate roofs, clay tiles, and recycled synthetic shingles. For each of the materials listed, there are different benefits that could have a positive impact on the environment versus a negative impact.
