Environmentally Friendly Roofs

Environmentally Friendly Roofing Materials Are Now Available

A little-known but new breed of environmentally friendly roofing products is now available for residential applications. If you like the look of slate, tile, or wood shakes, you can now buy them made from blends of polymers, sawdust, rubber, vinyl, and fiberglass. These composite shingles are quite flexible, so they can withstand high winds, hail damage, or foot traffic without splitting, rotting, or breaking.

Environmentally Friendly Doesn’t Mean Less Durable

Fire retarders and UV inhibitors are added to make them as durable as conventional roofing options. In polymer-based shingles, the color is blended through the material, so scratches won’t show and peeling isn’t a concern. Some of these alternative roofing products are made from recycled materials, such as used car tires or post-industrial waste, and the roofing may be entirely recyclable when it wears out.

Environmentally Friendly Doesn’t Mean Less Durable

Polymer or rubber composite roofing materials are heavier than metal but they are about the same weight as laminated asphalt shingles. Most come with 50-year warranties that can be transferred from one homeowner to the next. They install easily with nails over typical felt underlayment, just like asphalt shingles. You may be able to install a composite roof yourself, depending on the product.
