Here in Georgia, we are often asked, "What is Green Roofing?" In a nutshell, green can be generally defined as reuse, reduce and recycle.

Reduce energy usage, for you. Every little kilojoule makes a difference, and it all piles up. Reduce pollutants in the air, water, and buildings indoors, as well as air, water, and land outdoors. Reduce material wastage. The important thing here is to ensure that any material is recycled or used again for other purposes and is not wasted. More green roofing choices.

Reuse components, such as used cedar shingles which can be shredded into mulch and used on nature trails, as well as residential landscaping. Because cedar decomposes, it doesn’t need to end up in a landfill. New recycling possibilities are being developed for used tar shingles. They can be milled and utilized as filler in private driveway asphalt mix. At this time, this is a very limited use, and there are plenty of asphalt roofs coming off and disposed in landfills. We prefer our customers to install their new sustainable, Energy Star Cool Metal Roofing material directly over their asphalt shingles. Slate roofing can be taken off, broken up, and utilized as landscaping gravel. If you remove a used metal roof, it can often be re-applied on sheds, or sometimes recycled in Atlanta.

Customer Loves New Metal Roof
- 03.18.2009 - Article Number: 5

"Love my new metal roof"

I love my new metal roof. Southern Metal Roofing saved me lots of money. It is the answer to my prayers. I really needed roofing and this was definitely the way to go. It's a very pretty color and the money I'll save in cooling and heating costs will be nice to keep in my own pocket. It's also good for the environment because my shingles didn't have to come off and be thrown out. No hurting Mother Earth. And, I'll never have to re-roof again. Praise the Lord.
