Metal Roofing’s
Environmental Benefits

Home » About Us » Green Roofing – Environmental Benefits
//////////Metal roofing is, without a doubt, the most “green” and environmentally friendly roof you can have on your home or business. For instance, our metal roofing is manufactured from 60% to 90% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. In contrast, traditional composition asphalt roofing emits hydrocarbons into the atmosphere as it deteriorates over time. We also install the metal roofing directly on top of your existing old roof, saving you the cost of removal, and there is no waste to deal with.

We also take any old roofing that we remove to a local recycling facility. Roofing materials fill our landfills daily with literally tons of old torn-off conventional roofing. As a result, All-Star Roof Systems commits to making that old practice a thing of the past. Our crews will also recycle the metal roofing scrap materials left over after we conclude a roof installation.
