Shingles are popular in the roofing industry because the products are relatively inexpensive. Also, the roofing units do not require extensive maintenance, and you can repair damage with relative ease. However, traditional shingles are not favourable because they drain natural resources. Moreover, they are not long-lasting and often end up in landfills. If you love shingles but would like to go green, you should consider choosing recycled shingles. These are manufactured using waste materials such as rubber, fibres and plastic. This action reduces the amount of waste that ends up in the landfills every year. Also, you will not notice any difference in performance and appearance between new and recycled shingles.
