If you're like most contractors or roofers, you're looking for ways to save time and money on the jobsite. Oftentimes that means researching and finding ways to reduce waste.
For a roofing project, one of the easiest decisions you can make that will have immediate payback is to select DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roof tiles.
The first way to save is to take advantage of the Jobsite Recycling Program from DaVinci. If your project is within a 500 mile radius of Lenexa, Kansas, DaVinci will include boxes (upon request) with your composite roofing order for returning unused DaVinci product for recycling back to us with prepaid FedEx Ground labels. If your project is further than 500 miles away, we will still be happy to send boxes for you to return DaVinci scraps and extra tiles to us so that you don't have to haul them off to the landfill. (See DaVinci Recycling Program Contributes to Green Environmental Efforts)
The second way we can help you save is when you pay special attention to where you can use cut portions of our imitation slate and shake alternative tiles on your roof projects. Don't discard those cut pieces … considering saving the remaining portion from a cut tile used in a valley for the corresponding hip. Or, with a Single-Width tile, consider using the cutoff portion from the right side of a gable on the left side.
Our environmentally friendly roof tiles are made for reduced waste. Extra time and attention on the jobsite to your cuts and product usage can result in less waste to haul away. And, if you do have leftover product, the great news is that our Jobsite Recycling Program is there to make your life easier!
