The Environmental Impacts of your new Metal Roof
The Environmental Impacts of your new Metal Roof:
Metal roofing is the only TRULY green material in the roofing industry, because it uses the least amount of resources during the manufacturing process, contains no petroleum by-products, and can always be recycled. A metal roof (or any metal for that matter) can be recycled an unlimited number of times without suffering material degradation.
New metal roofs may contain anywhere from 30-60% of recycled metal content, and are 100% recyclable at the end of their service lives. Old metal roofs will never end up in our landfills at the end of their service lives, thus saving the ever-precious landfill space and helping protect the environment.
