With environmental concerns taking front page in the news, residential and commercial roofing services and companies have made changes to become more compliant to new green policies. Leading the forefront of meeting this challenge is Owens Corning®, a global leader in roofing, siding and fiberglass insulation manufacturing. This year, the company has issued a $450-million “green bond” in its commitment to producing environmentally friendly and energy-efficient construction materials.
This inaugural green bond is coupled with another $445-million allocation to Owens Corning’s already-impressive sustainable projects. The development has been hailed as one of the biggest steps toward a better future. But what does it mean to the average homeowner? Let our roofing specialists at Masters Roofing explain the good news this means for you.
Benefitting the Final User
Owens Corning spends a considerable amount on research and development, finding new ways to help their customers. This green bond helps make sure that this dedication to continued research is completed with both you and the environment in mind. With these funds, you can expect better residential roofing products from Owens Corning.
Affordable Products for All
The shift to sustainability aims to produce roofing products that are cost-efficient without sacrificing performance and efficiency. The result is often stronger and more durable roofing materials that require less frequent replacements, ultimately reducing the cost from a homeowner’s perspective.
Energy Savings Through the Roof
Finally, the green bond ensures that all new Owens Corning products used in roof repair and replacement projects are set to contribute to better energy efficiency ratings for your home. This translates to bigger savings on your annual heating and cooling bills. With all these new developments, you can expect your roof to pay for a portion of its initial cost in terms of energy savings.
