Roofing comes in all different profiles, colors, materials and styles, but not all are environmentally friendly. Learn why Clay, Concrete and Stone roofs are the worlds most Eco-Friendly options.
What is an Eco-Friendly Roof?
Key Points: Sustainable materials, abundant resources, low energy use.
Abundant natural resources.
The heart of any Eco-Friendly product is the use of abundant natural resources. Clay and Concrete tiles are made from locally sourced, natural products in abundant quantity.
Manufactured mostly from clay, sand, gravel and water clay and concrete tiles are packed full of sustainable natural resources easily found within the area of the factory. Resource sustainability is a key component of the longterm viability of the material. Centuries of continuous production of tiles around the world shows just how well the system work.
Sourcing locally reduces the need to ship large quantiles of raw materials long distances to the factory.
The use of advanced manufacturing technics is helping keep energy use and production waste down at record low levels.
Our factories stay green by;
- The use of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.
- Employing heat recovery and repurposing during manufacturing.
- Recovering waste water for purification and reuse.
Reduced Energy Use.
Modern Eco-Friendly roofs increase the value of your home, increase it’s curb appeal but can also reduce the homes overall carbon footprint.
- Installation of the roof tiles over a batten system can create an insulating air space which helps keep the home cool in the summer and warm during winter.
- Each of the products used for the installation of the tile roof is 100% recyclable. When the roof reaches its end of life a half century or more in the future it too can be repurposed for another use or recycled.
