Having a roof that helps the environment while saving you money is totally possible, and we are here to talk about it! Colorado is a beautiful state, and Planet Roofing is proud to support environmentally friendly roofs that preserve our state and keep our customers in the green. In our last blog, we went over standing-seam metal roofs and wood shingle roofs. Today, we will explore two more ecofriendly roofing options available to you!
Recycled Roofing Materials
More and more roofs today contained recycled content. The great thing is, these roofs can mimic any type of roof, from cedar shakes to slate. That means you get an elite lifespan of 50 years while enjoying the appealing look of slate or wood. You will also benefit from the manufacturer’s recycling program. These shingles really are the best of both worlds, and they are generally very affordable. At this point, there aren’t light-colored shingles available, but it’s only a matter of time before they are.
Reclaimed Slate or Clay Roof
Lasting for over 100 years, clay and slate tiles are still the longest-lasting roofing material. They also offer unmatched elegance and authenticity. You can reclaim roofing tiles from older homes to keep them out of the landfills, which is your greenest option. Keep in mind that these roofs are very heavy and you will need to save money to replace chipped or cracked tiles.
