Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) July 30, 2012
Like many other companies around the nation, Metal Roofing DE supports the “going green” movement and recently announced that they strive to give back to the environment. The company’s metal roofs are made from 25 to 30 percent recycled material, and are 100 percent recyclable long after they're used. Metal roofs are more environmentally friendly than asphalt shingles because shingles are petroleum based and rely on oil from overseas. More than 1.3 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into various landfills around the U.S. each year.
Metal roofing can be made from aluminum, copper, or steel, and can be purchased with recycled material contents as high as 100 percent. This causes less waste being sent to landfills, and less energy is wasted during production. As fuel supplies diminish, and the effects of global warming come to light, the high energy efficiency of metal roofing reduces consumption of fossil fuel.
The energy star rating of metal roofing will effectively lower cooling costs by 30 percent, saving the environment, by using less energy. Lowering pollution and resources used during the shipping transportation process, Metal Roofing DE uses local suppliers and manufacturers. This gives any project done to a home, a locally owned and community based feeling.
Metal Roofing DE dedicates its company to saving the environment one home at a time, and the company is determined to educate homeowners of Delaware to “go green” by offering American made roofing products. The solar thin film that Metal Roofing DE installs allows homeowners to help the environment by producing their own energy. The area’s leading roof installer takes pride in their roof work, and wants to make sure their customers do too, with their environmentally friendly metal roof.
