Go green with your next roof

Go green with your next roof

Indianapolis has a growing reputation for going green. This trend has not skipped over home repair, either, with more and more ways becoming available for you to help the environment, your home and your bank account all at the same time.

The popular axiom is to start at the top and work your way down, and in this case it fits, as one of the first places to start going green in your home may be your roof.

There are quite a few ways that you can go green with your roof.  One is to ask if your roofing contractor is sends roof repair waste to a recycler or jut to the landfill.  Old asphalt shingles can be used to make asphalt paving material for driveways for example.  Shingles made of tile, slate or wood can be reclaimed and reused.

Some alternative roofing materials are considered more eco-friendly, but it's good to ask where they actually come from.  Do they have to be trucked in from the other side of the country?  To learn more about the options, check out Angie's List's Go Green Roofing Options infographic.
