Owens Corning: Pioneering Sustainable Roofing for a Better Tomorrow
Sustainability is the name of the game as Owens Corning secures its place as the first American company to put environmental advocacy front and center in their $450-million inaugural “green bond.” A green bond is a bond that’s specifically earmarked for environmental and climate-based operations. Long a favorite of both roofing contractors and homeowners alike, Owens Corning is dedicated to helping build a better world for future generations with their focus on producing sustainable housing materials for the roofing industry.
But what does this commitment mean to a homeowner like you? Let our roofing specialists at American Roofing & Construction, LLC show you what you can expect from Owens Corning roofing systems in the future.
Sustainability and Quality
According to the EPA, between 230 to 530 million tons of construction waste are sent to landfills every year. Of this amount, approximately 20% comes from roof replacement and construction waste. By building better and longer-lasting roofing products, Owens Corning aims to reduce roofing waste and improve their recycling capabilities. As a homeowner, this means lower costs through fewer replacements.
Today, Owens Corning is a leading brand in energy-efficient roofing products which means you can cut down on your energy use by up to 15% annually. The company aims to increase this efficiency up to 30% by the year 2030 by continuing to develop innovative energy solutions in their line of roofing products.
Cutting down on energy bills can help save you money in the long run. The savings you make from their low-maintenance roofing systems in addition to the decreased energy bills mean an Owens Corning roof can offset any amount of roof estimate you may have for a new roof.
