As an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, Signature Exteriors has taken the Shingle Recycling Pledge.
Because sustainability is so important to Signature Exteriors, we are committed to reducing the enormous amount of landfill waste that is created by the construction industry.
We send old shingles to our shingle recycling facilities, grind them up, and reuse the material for asphalt repair products such as "cold patching" on streets in cold environments. In addition, we let our clients know how they can save money by using solar fans and sun tunnels rather than more expensive ventilation and lighting products.
From Owens Corning:
Each year in the United States, approximately 10 million tons of recyclable shingles are removed from the roofs of homes and buildings.
When you choose a roofing contractor who is able to recycle torn-off shingles, you are helping the environment in two ways: Your old shingles don't end up in a landfill, and they get repurposed as pavement!
Take a look at this short video on shingle recycling and remember, when you choose Signature Exteriors for your roofing needs, you are helping the environment!
