Eco-Responsibility

Construction doesn’t need to be wasteful. Weather-Tite’s teams generate an average of 8 tons of construction waste every day. So finding ways to keeping this waste from the landfill is a crucial goal for us.

RECYCLE

We diverted over 450,000 lbs of debris from the local landfill in 2019. That’s over 60,000 cubic feet of material!

PLANT A TREE

For every project contracted with Weather-Tite a tree is planted in your name in a key region of the globe affected by recent fires or overlogging.

The average roof made with these shingles contains 5 tires and 350 milk jugs, which are up-cycled into the premium base polymers and resins used in making their industry-leading asphalt shingles.

Did you know recycling doesn’t only apply to the new materials… At Weather-Tite we are able to recycle your old shingles! For a small fee we can send them to a processing plant to turn them back into asphalt. We always do our best to recycle any steel, aluminum and metal parts. We can even reuse old concrete as a clean fill for other projects. Even your vinyl siding can be made into other products! If there is a way to keep it from our landfill – here at Weather-Tite we are all about it!

Using these Malarkey shingles is the equivalent of planting two trees.
