CERTIFIED GREEN ROOFER
Kaufman Roofing has received Green Building Council approved training. We participates in a program that allows us to recycle your old shingles and use them to renew our highways.
In the past, used asphalt shingles have not been recycled; they've just been thrown into landfills. At Kaufman Roofing, we are dedicated in preventing the unnecessary disposal of used asphalt shingles. When we remove your old roof, we have the material delivered to a special facility and the asphalt shingles are separated from the other materials (wood, metal, etc.) The used shingles are then transported to the recycling center, where they are ground into smaller particles for use as paving material.
Kaufman Roofing is a Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau Certified Installer. Certi-label cedar shakes and shingles are made by experienced craftsmen who take pride in their trade and the quality of their product. Independent inspections conducted by accredited third party agencies ensure that product quality is maintained. Products are inspected to conform with various local, national and international codes and standards.
Cedar shakes and shingles manufactured by members of the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau (“CSSB”) are the only products labeled with the “Certi” brand name.
Each bundle of product has the mill’s distinctive Certi-label tucked under the bundle strap.
Asking for “the blue label” or “number one blue label” is not specific enough. CSSB members’ products are the only ones with the Certi brand name on the label.
