Now more than ever, homeowners are looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact. One of the biggest pieces of your home’s exterior is certainly your roof, and if you’re interested in reducing your carbon footprint, one of the best decisions you can make is choosing a sustainable option when it’s time to replace your home’s roof! Interested in learning more about which roofing options you should be using on your home? Keep reading below!
To begin, let’s talk about an option that many homeowners are likely surprised to see; rubber roofing. While many homeowners assume that rubber roofing is a poor choice because it is highly processed and manufactured, it is often constructed from old rubber tires and other recycled materials, making it a relatively friendly option! If you’re looking to install a roofing material that is safe for the environment, you could do far worse than rubber roofing!
Clay Tile Roofing
Another environmentally friendly option, clay tiles are a sustainable, and durable roofing option that many homeowners trust to protect their homes. Manufactured from natural clay, these tiles require minimal processing, and they are fully recyclable at the end of their lifecycle, able to be deconstructed and rebuilt into more shingles. Beyond their recyclability, they are a durable option, capable of lasting up to a half-century, which means you won’t need to replace your roof as often. This makes them a great choice for another trying to limit their environmental impact.
Finally, we have arrived at what is arguably the most sustainable roofing option on the market, slate. These tiles are sustainably sourced, and the tiles are produced with minimal processing. This means that not only is this roofing option completely recyclable at the end of it’s lifespan, it is also safe for the environment, and it’s manufacturing produces little to no pollutant by-products. Furthermore, this roofing option is fully capable of lasting over a century, and in some cases even longer. This means that if you’re looking for a roofing option that will keep your home protected from everything Mother Nature has to offer, while reducing your carbon footprint, slate roofing is arguably the best option available!
