A carbon footprint is a measure of the total fossil-fuel energy consumed and released by a person, product, or business. Here at Pro Roofing NW, we believe in doing our part in reducing our carbon footprint and creating a positive impact on the environment.
Our part may be small, but our ideals will spread and touch a larger demographic. We also believe that if one has attention to the smallest details in business, that business must also give awareness to larger details such as installing high-quality roof systems.
Eco-Friendly Business Practices
Although some of our current practices cost more than traditional measures, Pro Roofing NW is dedicated to making a difference.
Imagine if everyone did the following like us:
- Using EcoStar, Metal, and Reflective Composition roofing materials – Dedicated to using existing materials, EcoStar's roofing tiles are made of 80% recycled compounds. Utilizing EcoStar products preserves valuable natural resources.
- Recycling roofing materials – While others are just catching on to this idea, Pro Roofing NW has been recycling for years. Asphalt is the number 1 recycled material in the world, and 100% of our materials are brought to the Waste Management Recycling Plant.
- Using recycled paper – Pro Roofing NW has switched to recycled paper whenever possible. It's pricier than regular paper but it is an effective way to limit the impact.
- Reducing waste – Our office has modified the way we do things. We use soft copies of our information rather than printing out endless sheets of paper for file cabinets. We have invested in info-structure to create an almost paperless information management system. We also have shifted our focus to emails for our pre-appointment information packets and use soft copies to distribute information.
These are just some of the ways Pro Roofing NW is leading the green movement within the roofing industry. We've got to keep it up and pass it on! Additionally, we continually strive for increased efficiency in many other areas such as providing energy-efficient skylights and offering insulation options.
