When it comes to roofing materials, most people focus on the cost of the roof at the time of installation; however, using the suitable materials and the right roofing contractors can make all the difference in saving you money and time in the long term.
Euroshield shingles stand out as an excellent choice for your home or commercial property as they are considered one of the most durable roofing products on the market. Although Similar to other impact-resistant shingles, Euroshiled shingles are designed to take more of a beating by protecting your home from hail damage and different severe weather.

This means that 70% of the material used is source rubber tires that would end up in a landfill anyway, with an additional 15% of other recyclable material used. The trend of being environmentally friendly continues as their product is recyclable at the end of its life.
