Roofing: What Types Are Safe For The Environment?

Everything we do as a society has an impact on the environment. Whether it be throwing a piece of recycling in the trash or tearing down a whole forest. Everything has an effect, that includes your roofing. Here are the top three types of roofing to help keep your carbon footprint down.

Cedar Roofing Shingles

Most of the cedar shingles for your roof come from cedarwood that is sustainably harvested. This makes it one of the most environmentally conscious options in the market. They are super thermal resistant and any weakened shingles can be turned into mulch for your garden or flower bed.

Metal Roofing Shingles

Metal roofing is one of, if not the best roofing materials for the environment. It is great at keeping the temperature more controlled within your home, which really helps to lower your energy bill. Metal roofing also helps to deflect and prevent UV rays from penetrating your roof, Also helping to save you even more money on electricity. The metal in the sheets that make up your roof are made primarily from metal that has been recycled. What is also astounding is that whenever your metal roof is done serving you, it can be recycled again.

Slate Roofing Shingles

Slate roofing is another great option for your roof as it is made from natural stone. It is one of the most durable and long-lasting materials when maintained properly. It has a lifespan of up to one hundred years, which would make your worries about replacing your roof a thing of the past. Another perk of a slate roof is that it is able to be recycled without any greenhouse emissions.
