Preserving a Better Future and Not Fill Up the Landfills!
At Credo, we believe that a sustainable future is the only future. Do you know where the old, scrapped materials from your roof go when they are stripped off and disposed of? Do they fill up in a landfill where they will never be seen again? Or should they be given a new life in a different application? With most contractors, your roofing materials end up in a large waste bin and hauled off to the landfill. We believe there is a better way, and that’s why we emphasize and prioritize recycling as a part of every roofing project we complete.
Whether you’re repairing your roof, replacing it entirely, or conducting maintenance, the team at Credo always recycles everything we possibly can in order to protect and preserve our future. Our goal is to help your old roof avoid the landfill where possible. Polymer membranes can be melted down and repurposed. Tar can be melted down, refined, and reutilized for things like asphalt pavement. Some materials can even be completely reconstructed into new roofing materials that protect other buildings for decades or more! By pushing for recycling first, you can be certain that your roofing project will have a minimal environmental impact.
Believe it or not, most roofs are more recyclable than you might think! Even though your roof has been in use for multiple decades, most materials can be renewed and reutilized for a wide variety of different applications. At Credo, we proudly recycle as many of the materials as we can of every roof we repair or replace, no matter who constructed it in the first place.
All of the following roof materials can be recycled:
- Plastic membranes
- Wood structure
- Steel structure
- Sheet metal
- Tar & asphalt
- Plastic materials
- Metal hardware (bolts, nuts, fasteners, etc.)
