Having been in the industry for over 80 years, roofing expert Garlock-French Corporation understands how important our role is in espousing more environmentally conscious ideals. We offer products and services that embody such ideals. We explain more below.
There Is Too Much Construction Waste
According to the National Association of Home Builders, about 7 to 10 million tons of shingle tear-off waste and installation scrap is produced as byproducts of roofing installation every year. Imagine that much waste occupying landfills when they can be recycled to serve other purposes instead. Recycled asphalt shingles can be used for building roads or as a Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) additive for creating new shingles.
There Are Alternative Products
As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, Garlock-French Corporation is authorized to offer various GAF roofing products, including the GAF Advanced Protection® Shingle. This type of shingle is designed to have high resistance to extreme heat and cold. Advanced Protection Shingles are produced with lower asphalt and limestone content compared to traditional asphalt roofing.
We are also proud installers of EUROSHIELD® products, which contain 95% recycled materials. This product line features great alternatives to wood shakes (EuroShake®) and slate roofing (EuroLite Slate®). They are designed to have high-impact resistance necessary during hailstorms and other severe weather.
