Metal Roofing’s
Environmental Benefits

//////////

Metal roofing is without a doubt the most “green” and environmentally friendly roof you can have on your home or business. Traditional composition asphalt roofing is petroleum based and emits hydrocarbons into the atmosphere as it deteriorates over time. Metal roofing is manufactured from 60% to 90% recycled materials and is itself 100% recyclable. Metal roofing is typically installed directly on top of your existing old roof, saving you the cost of removal and there is no waste to deal with. If your asphalt roof needs to be removed we will bring the materials to a local recycling facility. Our landfills are inundated daily with literally tons of old torn-off conventional roofing and All Star Roof Systems is committed making that old practice a thing of the past. Our crews will also recycle the metal roofing scrap materials left over after we completed a roof installation to insure we are doing our part in helping our environment.
