The environmental impact of asphalt roofing.

What happens when you reroof your house?

Ohio law states that no more two layers of asphalt shingles are permitted on the roof of a home.  This means, after just one reroofing project, shingles must be removed.  Where do these shingles go?  See the infographic above.   11 million tons of it ends up in a landfill!  Don’t add to the mess.  On a 30-square roof, that’s over 10,000 lbs of waste dumped into a landfill.  Steward the natural resources of the earth by buying a metal roof from Schroer & Sons.
