  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


The Environmental Impact of Asphalt Shingle Recycling

Many homeowners and roofing contractors are starting to realize the benefits of asphalt shingle recycling. In fact, a past survey shows that roofers would be more than willing to spend time to recycle asphalt shingles just so they can save 10% on disposal costs. They also added that doing so will let them market themselves as roofers who’re committed to preserving the environment.

How Shingle Recycling Works

You can have asphalt shingles roofing in Carmel, Indiana, recycled once it reaches the end of its life span. Roofers tear off your old roofing and bring it to a nearby recycler. They then remove debris while using a powerful magnet to separate the nails and re-use them. Furthermore, this can be used to make new roads by adding the used asphalt into the pavement mix, making it more durable.

GAF® supports asphalt shingle recycling, and Universal Roofing and Exteriors takes pride in collaborating with them on their sustainability goals. Here are some of the benefits of recycling old asphalt roofs.

Promotes a Healthier Environment

When you recycle your old roofing, you are helping save the planet. Your old roof will not add to increasing landfill waste, which is harmful to your surroundings. This will also lessen the need for new oil, conserving natural resources. Furthermore, you can reclaim recycled asphalt pavement countless times, which lessens the need to use new materials and helps preserve landfill space.

Increases Savings

Aside from reduced demand for new materials, reusing asphalt pavement will let taxpayers save more money. Meanwhile, contractors using recycled residential roofing in Carmel, IN, will get to lower energy and material costs for homes.
