As the leading choice for commercial and residential roofing in Tampa, FL, we understand our responsibility towards the environment. Using eco-friendly and sustainable building materials can have a big impact and help conserve our natural resources. That’s why we’re proud to partner with GAF for our asphalt shingles. GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, is a responsible steward for the environment. Here’s why:
GAF’s Environmental Initiatives
GAF practices and supports new technologies in recycling, material optimization, and energy efficiency that help conserve natural resources. They also make sure to share this knowledge to help homeowners and contractors achieve their sustainability goals. For instance, GAF has manufactured over 2 billion square feet of EverGuard® TPO roofing. This is a cool roofing material that can help reduce a building’s energy consumption, which, in turn, reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
GAF is also a Platinum Sponsor of Certified Green Distributor™, the country’s only certifying and training program for green building material distributors. GAF also advances transparency in building products. They have completed two Life Cycle Assessments, and they have received four Health Product Declarations and two Environmental Product Declarations. Lastly, their Cool Roof Energy Savings Tool helps an expert in roof installation and roof repair in St. Petersburg, FL, like us, estimate energy savings.
Our Energy-Saving Roofing Products
If you want to improve your home’s energy efficiency, then we can help. We can install GAF’s Timberline® Cool Series® Shingles to reduce your home’s cooling costs. This asphalt shingle has special reflective granules that prevent the sun from making your attic hot. You can save up to 15% on total cooling costs depending on your home’s structure. We can also install energy-efficient metal roofing for your home. This material can also reflect solar heat and is immensely durable and long-lasting.
American Roofing and Sheet Metal is the number one choice for residential and commercial roofing in St. Petersburg, FL, and the surrounding areas. We can install many different kinds of roofing options for your home, each with different benefits. During our first meeting, we will discuss them with you and help determine which one will be the most beneficial to the environment.
