Greener Shingles: How to Achieve Greener Roofing

Homeowners today aren’t just thinking about curb appeal; they’re also considering the planet. In fact, studies suggest that about 85% of global consumers have shifted their buying habits to be more sustainable.  With this rising awareness, it’s no surprise that the roofing industry is buzzing about greener shingles. Let’s explore the perks of going green on top and how doing so makes the world a bit cleaner, one roof at a time.

What Are “Greener Shingles” and How Do They Differ From Traditional Roofing?

Greener shingles are a fresh take on roofing, offering an eco-friendly alternative to the standard options. Explore the differences between traditional shingles and options that are more environmentally friendly.

Traditional Roofing

Traditional roofs, particularly those using conventional shingles, carry a significant environmental footprint at each stage of their lifecycle. Beginning with production, manufacturing these shingles often requires intensive energy consumption, predominantly from non-renewable sources. This fact contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and leaves a bigger carbon footprint.

Many traditional shingles reflect sunlight poorly throughout their usage phase, increasing indoor temperatures and energy consumption. Once they’re no longer usable, the disposal of conventional shingles poses another challenge. Asphalt shingles account for nearly 11 million tons of waste material annually, and most are in landfills because they’re predominantly non-biodegradable, taking hundreds of years to decompose.

Their decomposition can also release harmful compounds into the soil. Overall, the lifecycle of conventional shingles underscores the need for greener roofing alternatives.

Greener Shingles

Unlike traditional shingles, greener shingles are crafted from upcycled or renewable materials like recycled plastics, reclaimed wood, or sustainable natural fibers. But the benefits of these shingles don’t stop at being kinder to Mother Earth.

Their innovative design and materials make them energy-efficient, reflecting more sunlight and reducing the heat homes absorb. This factor means less reliance on air conditioning and more savings on energy bills. Energy-efficient roofs can cut cooling costs by up to 15%.

Furthermore, with their enhanced durability, greener shingles often outlive their conventional counterparts. This extended lifespan translates to fewer replacements, resulting in less construction waste over time. Opting for greener shingles is a win for both homeowners and the planet.
