For example, there are quality roof coverings that are manufactured without toxic chemicals and that are also 100% recyclable into new raw materials for the same quality roof covering. This reuse results in a large saving in raw materials and CO2 emissions. These roof coverings can also be applied in an extremely environmentally friendly manner, for example by means of water-based adhesives or with very few solvents.

Sustainable Roofing Options
Cradle 2 Cradle roofing: an environmentally responsible alternative
Recently, there has been a roof covering on the market that is the first and only to receive the C2C certificate, the Derbipure. This is a white roofing membrane based on vegetable oils and resins. The innovative product is a sustainable and ecological alternative to bituminous roofing. The starting point for the development was to find a future-oriented solution for the raw material problem around bitumen, a petroleum product. After all, petroleum is not a reusable and inexhaustible raw material and, moreover, has the problem that the price is constantly increasing.
There are various options in insulation materials with regard to environmental friendliness. For example, there are materials that are more environmentally friendly than others due to the use of materials, the production process, the required thickness, the quantity for good insulation value, the service life and the possibility of reuse or recycling.
Cradle 2 Install and dismantle the cradle
Roofing installers Toronto can responsibly install and dismantle your Cradle 2 Cradle (C2C) roofing system. This means that the roofing, the insulation, and the various layers are laid on the roof in such a way that the roof is not only watertight and well insulating but also that the materials used can be separated at the end of their life without too much energy and subsequently ( depending on the materials chosen) can be properly reused and/or recycled. If properly laid, we can have the bitumen roofing recycled C2C responsibly as raw material for new bitumen roofing.
The central government, provinces, water boards and municipalities set a good example and strive to make 100% of their purchases sustainable in 2015. So for your next roofing project, choose sustainable products (from energy generation to quality roofing) and who can can also install, maintain, dismantle and recycle the roofing in a sustainable manner.
