Asphalt Roof Shingle Disposal
When an asphalt roof is replaced, the discarded material may go to a landfill or be recycled. If recycled, the asphalt derived from a typical roof replacement can provide material for 200 feet of a two-lane highway.
Asphalt Shingle Durability
Although the roofing material must be processed to remove nails and other materials, pavement that includes roofing asphalt is especially durable. Due to the special components that sustained longevity in your roof, roads containing roofing asphalt are less prone to cracking in cold weather.
