It is with great pleasure that Green Knight Metal Roofing was given the opportunity to support Rainforest Partnership at their 9th Annual Amazon in Austin Event this past October. Green Knight, along with over a dozen additional sponsors and environmental activists from near and far, came together for a night filled with lively entertainment, delicious South American food and
drinks, and soothing rainforest sights and sounds for an unforgettable evening for an even more amazing cause.
Just as Rainforest Partnership aims to preserve and protect our environment, Green Knight Metal Roofing, too, works towards the same goal by providing homeowners with roofing options that
are environmentally friendly and made from recycled materials. Together, we can achieve real results by protecting our planet one roof and rainforest at a time.
Environmental Benefits of Metal Roofing
Did you know a metal roof is one of the most ecologically friendly options available to homeowners today? Asphalt shingles amount to over one billion pounds of waste each year
(according to The National Association of Homebuilders) so the choice is clear. Metal roofing not only provides a more aesthetically pleasing look, boosting a home’s return on investment, but
it’s also the best choice for our Earth. Take a look at all the benefits a metal roof provides over its lifespan.
- Made from up to 95% recyclable materials, while also being 100% recyclable at the end of their life cycle
- Energy-star labeled
- Lower utility costs (up to 20%)
- Cracking, shrinking, and eroding resistant, which means roof will last longer and fewer materials used in the long run
- Can often be installed over existing shingles, eliminating the need to send them to
- Minimal carbon footprint
- And so much more!
We think more people in America should consider getting metal roofs.
