What Is Roof Recycling?
- Thursday, 12 March 2020 11:47
Buildings are made up from many different types of materials, most of which can be efficiently recycled. This is especially true for roofs – the cement, the asphalt, the membrane, the metal and the wood, the tar paper and the gravel used for roof decking and roof covering can be recycled and reused in various ways.
Whatever material you choose for your roof, you need to be aware that your roof statrs aging the second when the installation is complete. Each type of material comes with specific durability, but even the strongest, most long-lived materials will need to be replaced eventually and that is when recycling comes into the picture. Modern recycling and manufacturing technologies allow for reusing almost any material – tar paper and roofing felt can be used to manufacture additives for new asphalt, metal roofing components can be melted and reused for new roofing panels, membrane can be reworked into cycling paths, while clay tiles can be ground and recycled for various purposes, too.
