NAPERVILLE, Ill., March 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Opal Enterprises, a Naperville roofing company, has recently received its certification as a 'Certified Green Roofer,' from GAF. GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America and this means customers can be confident that they're choosing a responsible Wheaton roofing company when they work with Opal Enterprises.
In order to be named as a certified green roofer, Opal Enterprises completed a number of different types of USGBC-approved training.
"It is vitally important that Opal cares about each step of the remodeling process. I hate that there are so many landfills being so quickly filled up. Construction debris has no place in the landfills," said Tara D. Opalski, Marketing Manager for Opal Enterprises (http://www.opalenterprises.net/).
Since becoming a certified green St. Charles roofing company, Opal Enterprises has recycled 217 tons of asphalt shingles. Opal Enterprises has ensured that the entire process happens completely within the Chicagoland area, which means the carbon footprint of the roofing project is reduced even further.
"We've recycled tons of shingles, but most people don't really understand just how many shingles this actually is -- it's the equivalent of over 540 cows! If you're in the Chicago area ask what a roofing company will do with the shingles. Looking for a company with a green certification to make sure your shingles aren't left filling a landfill is one the best things you can do to help protect our planet," said Opalski.
