    About 13 million tons of used shingles get torn off American roofs each year. Some are paved into roadways, but most end up in landfills. In 2021, one of the nation's biggest roofing manufacturers announced that it figured out how to turn used shingles back into new ones.
    Editor's Note: At 4:14 , this video states that GAF keeps a list of recyclers on shinglerecycling.org. GAF is a sponsor of the website, but it was developed and is maintained by the Construction Demolition Recycling Association.

In my country we use ceramic ou cement shingles, they last 2 or 3 generations with no maintenance. My dad has ceramic roof in his 60 years old house, no leaks, no maintenance at all.

@Moo but still too expensive than some countries that use Concrete and steel construction , Like here in india ,You can make a 2500 square feet Concrete house in $45000 if you own a land with all plumping and electricals and it will easily last for next 70-100 years

Here in the USA houses are built at the cheapest price which is why they use these shingles the most. They are also the most generic which will fit almost all houses even though ceramic chingles can look more beautiful and last longer.

This just highlights why metal or tile roof products are better. Yes, they're more expensive up front, but they last longer, are more durable, and are easier to recycle at end-of-life. Bonus is that metal and tile are non-combustible (unlike asphalt shingles) so safer in fire prone areas like the Southwest.

In the UK asphalt shingles are totally unheard of. Most homes use natural slate. Others use other manufactured roof tiles but never asphalt shingles. And we probably in our lifetime never ever have to replace a roof other than minor repairs. Asphalt shingles seem so backwards and crude. They look cheap and nasty.

@leoz maxwell jilliumz low income in the US does not match low income anywhere else, and almost everyone uses tile, so something is definitely wrong there

Its subjective. In America, asphalt shingles are more cost effective and more desirable aesthetically. The fasteners for "screw down" metal roofing are only warenteed for 8 to 10 years so that's the downside to the vast majority of metal roofing. Standing seam is superior but much more costly and low income areas rarely get standing seam. It's also Super hard to separate asphalt shingles from the tar paper, "ice and water", or synthetic underlayment when removing old shingles (I started out in construction with roofing and I've torn off more roofs then I wish I had.) I'm down for renewable alternatives but the market dictates what the average home owner can afford/has access to. I Love standing seam metal roofing and it's my preferred. Hopefully we will get there

I used to work at a wood recycling plant, we would grind up pallet scraps and solid wood and turn it into colored mulch. And we tried to get outside sources (construction sites etc) for our materials, had big "wood only" signs painted on the dumpsters and we would still get processed wood and tons of trash constantly so we never took the dumpster back. Until the the people that put the stuff in the containers start to care, it will never change.

We live in a culture of ease and throw-away...so change is unlikely anytime soon. The town i live in is small, and in town there is garbage and recycling pick up but for those outside of town limits there is a place to bring in recycling. There used to be an attendant there but i assume he died of stress, or was fired for screaming at idiot patrons, or murdered someone. There are signs about how one should manage cardboard (break it down) and what goes in recycling cans (glass, plastic, etc)...no one follows the rules. People cram the cardboard dumpsters full of unbroken down cardboard and only in the front, no one goes to the back of the dumpster to dump (i do). There is regularly non-recyclable stuff there like toilets or kid's strollers. No one cares, everyone is super lazy.

We do it with used tires as well... but as a leading expert in waste management I can assure you if you incentivized the recycling of these products more and more people would do it. But almost anywhere you go landfills and transfer stations charge EXTRA to recycle these types of items. This would dramatically reduce green house gases, but also contribute to companies ie earning carbon credits, reduce road costs, and provide many other perks. Incentivize companies like Waste Management and Republic to provide the recycling process and we will see a HUGE positive change in how trash and emissions are handled.

@Cannot Identify I'm talking mainly about hard to recycle items which includes most plastics but also shingles if you think about it. When looking at the whole value chain, the consultancy Deloitte estimated in a study published in 2015 that it takes 30 additional jobs to recycle plastic compared with burning unsorted waste or landfilling. And petro companies actually created and marketed the whole "recycling" thing as we know it today as a way to deceive consumers and rebuild the image of plastics as a whole which was flagging back in the 80s and 90s. They even created the chasing arrows logo you see on plastic packaging everywhere when in-fact most of the plastic types are not recycled in any locales in the US and will not even be accepted in the recycling centers if you tried to give it to them. The emphasis on "recycling" and de-emphasis on "reduce" and "reuse" was purposeful and the petro companies did many assessments, some of which predicted that recycling as we view it today could never become a cost effective exercise. So should we be spending time and energy (real energy mind you - Carbon energy) - in collecting virtually useless materials, processing them, and in doing so making things even less efficient, because the less efficient anything is, the more CO2 we are expending.

@John Jingleheimersmith I'm actually curious where you get the information that recycling is worse for the environment than simply landfilling them? Everything I have read indicates the opposite. Did your data take into account contamination and environmental factors, or land use, or the need to replace the product that is being discarded?

@John Jingleheimersmith the whole point is that it WILL lower emissions and have less negative effects on the environment. Rather than mining and producing more raw materials, which emits more GHGs. Plastic recycling is also quite lucrative and healthier for the environment as well. I think they're paying nearly $1,500/mTon for PE plastics. Done through systems that don't emit hardly ANY CO2. So I'm not sure where you're pulling your sources, but that aside; if you don't see trash island in the middle of the ocean that can be seen from outer space as being an issue then you should probably do a little more homework. In fact if it wasn't healthier and more profitable truthfully they wouldn't do it. Same goes for cardboard recycling. Regardless, let's say it does emit more emissions, it's still healthier for the environment. Do you know how much emissions and effects landfills have on the environment? Let me guess you think we shouldn't properly dispose of freon, lead or mercury as well (ie electronics)? Where are you drawing the line for your moral highground? I think you should research the innovative breakthroughs on things like straws and chopsticks. And how they are developing a whole new sustainable manufacturing process for certain goods.

The real question is "should we"? I dont believe any group has executed a full lifecycle assessment of emissions of landfill shingles vs recycled shingles. As humans we don't always think things through all the way. Recycling of plastics is one of those things. We actually release more emissions via plastic recycling due to it being so much more involved and complicated to do. We'd actually release less CO2 overall if we just stopped all plastic recycling all together. I suspect the same might be true of asphalt shingle recycling. Here's the thing. Asphalt is one of the cheapest and easiest to manufacture materials around. It's mostly just bitumin, a byproduct of oil refining, and gravel usually sourced locally. Because of all the additional steps required to turn roof shingles into a useable product for road asphalt, I would guess it might be better for the environment to just bury it in the ground. Landills get an undeserved bad rep and stigma, when in fact sometimes, underground can be the best place for a lot of the things we throw away. Think about these paper straws and how much more energy is used up trying to create these crappy replacements for perfectly good straws all because of some stupid sea turtle video. You can look this up and verify for yourself that we actually created a worse problem environmentally by banning plastic straws. Humans need to use their analytical brains for more thinking and less emotions.

im glad i replaced my asphalt with tin last year (actually it covers the old asphalt) looks so much nicer and will last a lifetime. i noticed in the last few years that so many homes here in the midwest are switching to steel. it helps that steel is about the same price as asphalt now.

@Steve L Ya, it doesnt grip but I still prefer it, I put it up and I still remmember the scratches and crap from asphalt shingles, metal was always a better experience for me even if I slipped on the slippery slopes a few times. Some other stuff tho, if you don't secure it right it will tear off and unlike a shingle, a sheet of metal in the wind is just a wind thrown knife. On top of that, it last ages but the coating wears off so you still have to recoat it every once and a while. Tho that is just maintenance stuff. The only drawback I can think of that may be a deal breaker is heavy rain and hail it can be rather loud.

Asbestos isn't "poisonous" it's hazardous. Poisonous implies a chemical reaction, but asbestos is not chemically reactive with the human body. It causes physical damage in your lungs, creating scar tissue that can develop into cancer, it also can build up physically in your lungs mixing with mucus and reducing the ability to breathe. But none of that is a poisonous interaction.

Tell me again what cancer is? And how and why asbestos causes some types including mesothelioma, because I'm fairly certain that mutations of cells undergo some reactions, granted it's a bit more advanced then what you pick up not actually going to school and studying it, you know as compared to being a YouTube expert.

The reason they’re hard to recycle is the same reason they don’t last… Why don’t we use things that we can’t get rid of like certain plastics or carbon to make something that we want to last forever? We had this problem of filling landfills for things that don’t last long, and then a similar problem of creating too much of things that last forever. Would it not make sense to use those things that last forever as building products then? There is so much corruption in the world today that it is absolutely impossible to make a good idea work. If I was to make it work they would condemn my home. Here in North Carolina if you have enough solar panels or hydroelectric to power your house you still have to pay the power company to be connected to their grid even though you can’t sell power back to the grid. It is in their perspective. It will never happen, but if you are truly “off grid“ your home can be condemned if it is not connected to the power grid here in North Carolina. That doesn’t sound like any step forward it sounds like lobbyists planting dead hookers in the trunks of legislators

Always gets me mad to see how badly humans fail at circular economy. It's not just companies and governments – also the private households; e. g. home owners with a garden but no compost, which rather send their biodegradable waste in plastic bags to the landfill. 🤯 Not a care in the world resp. for the environment.

If we want to switch away from asphalt shingles we need to increase our trade schools. Shingles are easier to install and don’t require a lot of training or equipment. most roofing problems can be traced back to poor installation quality, metal and tile are some of the most difficult steep slope roofs to install.

I hate legislation that adds to the cost of a home, but asphalt shingles are a blight on the environment. They should only allow asphalt shingles that are rated for 50 years or greater. This should encourage people to look at alternative roofing methods. Here in Colorado we have many hail storms. Roofs get replaced more like at a 10 year cycle, so the amount of waste is tremendous here

Repent and follow Jesus my friend! Repenting doesn't mean confessing your sins to others, but to stop doing them altogether. Belief in Messiah alone is not enough to get you into heaven - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36). Contemplate how the Roman empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. Revelation 17 confirms that it is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years to accomplish the religion of the Israelites C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate though because you can start a relationship with God and have proof. Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life. - Revelation 3:20 Revelation has been unfolding since Jesus died. The Popes have claimed to be equal to God and set themselves in Jesus' place (antichrist(s)). Vatican City (Which is its own nation BTW) have risen up to fulfill the role of the false prophet Regarding the man of lawlessness or antichrist, 2 Thessalonians 2:4 says “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” The restrainer that the Apostle Paul was referring to in 2 Thessalonians was the Western Roman Emperor, who held back the Popes from taking power. Once the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 AD, the Pope was given civil and ecclesiastic authority over Rome; healing the deadly head wound of the beast in Revelation 13, as they took the Emperors title of Pontifex Maximus, leader of the church and state. “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.” (Source: “Decretals of Gregory IX,” Book 1, chapter 3.) Pope Pius V blasphemed, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.” (Source: Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Cities Petrus Bertanous Chapter XXVII: 218.) Pope Leo XIII declared, “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.” (Source: Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter, June 20, 1894) The antichrist sea beast of Revelation points to the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, who controlled the Roman beast for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 AD. Daniel 7:25 says “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” The Popes of Rome spoke against Elohim and proclaimed to be God. They reigned for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 AD. during which they caused tens of millions of saints to be killed. The Pope’s title is Vicar of Christ, which in Latin is ‘Vicarius Filii Dei’, and equates numerically to the number 666

@Thatsme849 if the solution was that simple yes absolutely. However it's not. The problem is more complex than that. When a typical person thinks about roofing products what's the first thing that comes to mind? When you drive down any street in America and look up at any particular house what's the most common type of roofing you see? Then there's the accessibility issue shingles are more readily available than any other roofing product. Then there is costs typically shingles are cheaper than other roofing solutions. So the answer to the problem isn't so clear cut as using product A to product B.

Definitely a great idea and these guys are doing their best despite others shown being paid but “stock piling” thereby white anting the system. Recycling domestically all too often shows too small a percentage is recycled anyway. It likely is not the methods at fault....it’s people. “We” are just too greedy and will not accept any reductions in income regardless of the earth. It may have seemed a worthy task to line up the ships deck chairs but when the ship is the Titanic it becomes wasted effort. Good industry says “we will get there by 2050” or whenever....but others will have destroyed everything by then. No, i have valid reasons to say this. Google World Population Growth and realise that many of us lived when there were 2 billion population. We watched that go to 3 billion 4,5,6,7,8+ all in our lifetime. Take a sheet of paper or your tablet and draw a simple graph. First billion was about 1820. But we have enough graph references points in our lifespans to show us what is immediately in front of us. If we all coupled and one of the two brought in a pay check (would you?) ran only one car, one computer, walked instead of ride, stopped airplanes, trucks, who would tolerate doing that? But, if we did all that we would still only be stacking deck chairs. Some are talented in the arts, others medicine, others engineering, etc but no one of us have the talent to govern. If you can keep the peace in your own family you are likely only a 2 person family or you are deceiving yourself. No one can keep peace in a family, certainly not in a community, how then a whole country? Has there ever been a peaceful government ever? We need to be directed to save this earth without personal profit. We need “to build houses and dwell in them” and this can only happen when selfish violent people are taken out of the picture....no present system can nor will do that. A house cannot build itself. This earth did not build itself. Evolution cannot drive a nail through two pieces of wood....but a Creator can make the nail and the wood. And that is the crux of our problem. A Creator who gives us a home and watches us ruin it will not have his handiwork destroyed. He will oust the ruinous tenants and put in caring tenants. (Wouldn’t you?) Look back at your graph again and see what is ahead and next time two sweet people knock on your door trying to tell you there is a future.....listen to them. (Why not).

I never quite understood why asphalt shingles are so popular, they break so easily they are very fragile, they never were up to the task of keeping a roof dry under any conditions other than ideal. Any other roof type even brush such seems to be better than Tarah and shingle I just don’t get it. There must be lobbyists involved because even though I’ve made plenty of money installing torn shingle roofs working construction for decades, they just don’t make sense at all they are garbage from the beginningf

I think the only reason we use materials like this in the first place is to cut corners being lazy these days. They always build a house in the USA in under a week it seems and all because of the streamlined materials. We should use different roof options it makes sense, I live about 2 miles away from GAF factory in Baltimore.

@Josh Perez I'm in Buffalo and over the past few years I've seen metal roofs here and there mostly in the suburbs though. My sister had a metal roof put on her house and shes had nothing but problems not because of the product itself but because of improper installation and because the issue that caused her to get the metal roof to begin with was never addressed. She mes multiple dormers on her roof and the valleys were leaking I was going to repair them for her but there was the money issue she didn't have the money to repair them but was able to get some government subsidized funding to put on the metal roof and they went straight over the old roof. It's still leaking including that the roof is containing all that moisture further destroying the underlying wood work. It's a mess. Shes stuck now with a band aid for an issue that needed surgery.

@JuanCarlos Negron unfortunatly you are right, most of the times the insurance helps them pay for it... but 50 percent of the time im able to convince them to upgrade to standing seem metal roofs because it reflects heat better and they waste less electricty trying to cool the house

@Richie Kaylor i install standing seem metal roofs bro. those can breath if you know how to install it right... however i agree the the corrugated roofs suck... but i install standing seem and ive proven to the home owners with a laser temperature reader their attic temperatures before and after a metal roof...(metal reflects heat way more than shingles) its a 20 degree difference .. that saves you money with the air conditioning bill here in texas and they agree

I have 200y old reclaimed roof tiles on my roof. They are still going strong. The secret is that unlike shingles. This is a two layer system cushioned by an air layer. This means the top layer( the tiles) get all the rain, and can dry from underneath. While the bottom layer is the airtight seal. This type of shingles is not used in europe. To much heritage in clay products for that. Ofcourse flat roofs had asfalt, but is becoming EPDM most of the time now. Which lasts forever as it is UV inert.

Repent and follow Jesus my friend! Repenting doesn't mean confessing your sins to others, but to stop doing them altogether. Belief in Messiah alone is not enough to get you into heaven - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36). Contemplate how the Roman empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13. Revelation 17 confirms that it is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years to accomplish the religion of the Israelites C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate though because you can start a relationship with God and have proof. Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life. - Revelation 3:20 Revelation has been unfolding since Jesus died. The Popes have claimed to be equal to God and set themselves in Jesus' place (antichrist(s)). Vatican City (Which is its own nation BTW) have risen up to fulfill the role of the false prophet Regarding the man of lawlessness or antichrist, 2 Thessalonians 2:4 says “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” The restrainer that the Apostle Paul was referring to in 2 Thessalonians was the Western Roman Emperor, who held back the Popes from taking power. Once the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 AD, the Pope was given civil and ecclesiastic authority over Rome; healing the deadly head wound of the beast in Revelation 13, as they took the Emperors title of Pontifex Maximus, leader of the church and state. “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.” (Source: “Decretals of Gregory IX,” Book 1, chapter 3.) Pope Pius V blasphemed, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.” (Source: Pope Pius V, quoted in Barclay, Cities Petrus Bertanous Chapter XXVII: 218.) Pope Leo XIII declared, “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.” (Source: Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter, June 20, 1894) The antichrist sea beast of Revelation points to the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, who controlled the Roman beast for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 AD. Daniel 7:25 says “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” The Popes of Rome spoke against Elohim and proclaimed to be God. They reigned for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 AD. during which they caused tens of millions of saints to be killed. The Pope’s title is Vicar of Christ, which in Latin is ‘Vicarius Filii Dei’, and equates numerically to the number 666

Why not use better materials to create a better and cheaper product that last longer? Tar and shingle roofs don’t last at all they are not maintainable they’re expensive create excess heat don’t deal well with expansion or weather of any type. The drainage from these reeves fills water ways with toxic waste. Why not use something better to make something more durable? Like one of the products or buy products that is that we can’t get rid of? Anybody? Take a guess
