Here at Holthaus Companies, Inc., we make every effort to reduce, reuse and recycle. In our effort to reduce waste, we carefully measure and customize each roof to lessen excess material. Duro-Last, our low-sloped roof product, is a highly reflective roofing membrane which also has low heat transfer properties. This helps our customers improve their buildings energy efficiency. In addition, Duro-Last, at their manufacturing plants, recycles their scrap materials back into their products.
We also strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible with our shingle roofing operations. Along with keeping an eagle eye on waste, many of the existing asphalt shingle roofs we remove are ground up and used to make asphalt paving material. Just think, the next time you are driving on the highway, it may be YOUR old roof you are driving on!
Additionally, both our office staff and crews make every effort to participate in our shop and office recycling programs. Many of the estimating, ordering, packing and shipping materials that we use and receive are recycled every day. It’s like your home recycling program, except on a much grander scale!
