Green Roof Options for Your House

Published by Andrew Schmidt

Green roofing is a great way to reduce your utility costs and do your part to help keep the world livable for our future generations. Learn about how you can make your home green with these roofing options.


Shingle Recycling 

Our roofing contractors near Oswego can now recycle your decrepit roof for you. Chicagoland residents now have the option to be apart of a national strategic alliance between Owens Corning and Heritage Environmental Services to recycle old and torn roof shingles into new asphalt roads. Never feel guilty about upgrading to a new roof and instead be responsible for paving new roadways for a small extra fee.  


Cool Shingles 

If you are looking for a new roof, there are now various environmentally friendly shingle options to reduce your carbon footprint. Cool Series, Cool Series Energy Saving and Landmark Solaris are lines of innovative roof shingles that absorb less heat from the sun to keep the whole roof system cooler. This not only helps reduce air conditioning costs in summer months but may extend your roof service life. Our roofing contractors near Oswego can also install ‘look alike’ or PV shingles that manage to conserve energy and generate electricity for your home directly from the sun. 


Showalter Roofing Service is dedicated to working with all clients to conserve energy, save money and help the environment at the same time with every roofing plan. Contact our roofing contractors near Oswego today to learn more about green roofing options.
