Green Building Standards

Pre- and post-consumer recycled content accounts for a significant percentage of the materials used to manufacture many of our roofing products. This content includes slag, stone granules, corrugated mixed paper and sludge, and not only reduces landfill waste, but also cuts down on the release of greenhouse gases that would occur if virgin materials were processed to manufacture these products.
Some of these products contain up to 80% post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content, thus contributing to the Environmentally Preferred Products category within USGBC's LEED-H standard.
