Roofing Professionals of Texas commits to recycling all reusable roofing material for rebuilding roads in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex


Richland Hills, TX, August 14, 2018:  Roofing Professionals of Texas marks its 7th year of continued success with converting roofs to roads in Tarrant, Denton, Dallas, and Collin Counties. With well over 3,000 roofs under their roofers’ tool belts, Roofing Professionals of Texas’s plan for the future involves maintaining the status quo—installing top quality roofing systems that last and protect. 

August 14, 2018 Roofing Professionals of Texas is doing everything it can to reduce their carbon footprint and maintainable practices, including asphalt shingle recycling. Landfills everywhere are overflowing with construction debris and recycling an old roof is the equivalent to eliminating more than a year's worth of household waste. Roofing Professionals of Texas has taken the Owens Corning Shingle Recycling Pledge. “We pledge to recycle the shingles from your roof while at the same time providing you with a new high-quality roof system that is built to last”, says Victoria Tarkowski, VP of Residential Construction.

Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material used in the DFW Metroplex. Shingles contain asphalt and aggregate which are both valuable resources. New technology has allowed for old roofing shingles to be ground down, recycled, and reused in asphalt paving. Roofing Professionals of Texas is an industry leader and was the first to recycle at the Riverside Masonic Lodge # 1331 (Haltom City TX) and at Whispering Woods Apartments (Arlington TX). Our alliance with Riverside Masonic Lodge 1331, local roofing distributors and Owens Corning the largest asphalt shingle manufacturer in the USA gives us the ability to take roofing materials that would have been sent to a landfill and reuse it for asphalt roads. Roofing Professionals of Texas has received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from homeowners since the inception of this program in 2011. Some homeowners have told us that the reason they chose us to install their new roof was due to our shingle recycling efforts.  In Houston, “the Cathedral of Saint Matthew is being done by us in the month of August 2018 and we will be recycling the churches roof, as well” says President and CEO Freddie Reinwald.

When the old shingles are removed from your roof they are separated from other roofing debris such as wood and metal. (The metal is also recycled). The old asphalt shingles are then loaded in a dump truck that transports them to the nearest participating landfill.  Certain Shingle Recycling Centers are located within city limits, near jobsites, and near one of our roofing material distributers. At the recycling center, the old shingles are tested for asbestos. If asbestos is not present in the shingles, they are cleaned and all debris (including nails) is removed. Asbestos and debris free asphalt singles are then moved into processing. The old shingles are sent through a grinder and become Recycled Asphalt Shingles (RAS). The RAS is then incorporated into asphalt paving to make roads and parking lots.

We strongly encourage asphalt shingle recycling. In fact, Roofing Professionals of Texas is the only roofing company that partners with shingle recyclers. Make this country green again.
