Green Roofing Materials: Asphalt Shingles and Metal

One of the best ways to take care of the environment is by using green building materials. Arry’s Roofing can provide you with green roofing materials that excel in two main properties: recyclability/use of recycled content and reflectivity/solar emittance rating. Here’s what you should know about our green roofing materials.

Green Roofing Materials

We are an expert in asphalt shingle and metal roofing in Tampa, FL, two roofing options with great recyclability. Recyclers can repurpose old asphalt shingles into construction material for new roads. Since manufacturers make asphalt shingles from limestone, asphalt, glass, and sand, it can be recycled. Recycling old asphalt shingles for roads reduces the need for new oil, conserves natural resources, and saves landfill space.

Our metal roofing in Tampa is another excellent choice from a waste-reduction standpoint. Many metal roofs contain up to 100% recycled material. At the end of its life span, it can be recycled again. In addition, metal roofs are durable, reliable, and long lasting. A metal roof can withstand any weather and can last for more than 60 years. This significantly reduces the need for manufacturing new building materials and consuming natural resources.

Improved energy efficiency is another reason to get a new asphalt shingle and metal roof in Tampa. Our energy-efficient asphalt and metal roofs have a high reflectivity and solar emittance rating. This means that when the sun shines down on our roofs, they reflect a significant portion of heat away. This keeps your attic cool, reducing the strain on your HVAC systems. This leads to reduced energy consumption and reduced energy bills.

Our metal and asphalt cool roof options can have a significant impact on your home’s energy efficiency. This will not only save you money, but also help reduce the workload of the power plants providing your home’s energy. This lowers the consumption of natural resources.
