At Tadlock Roofing, we recognize the importance of coming together to protect our natural resources, and we are dedicated to doing our part to make a positive impact in both our community and our industry.
The unfortunate truth is that our industry produces a lot of waste. In fact, 5 percent of all landfill content in the United States comes from old roofs. So, as an industry, we must find ways to do better. For several years, Tadlock Roofing has taken the lead in this effort by recycling 100 percent of our roof take-downs in an effort to keep these materials out of our trash piles and allow them to be recycled into products that can be used down the line. By doing so, we hope to serve as an inspiration to other contractors in our industry.
While we are incredibly proud of this effort, we understand that this alone is not enough.
As we continue to expand our sustainability efforts, Tadlock Roofing is planting a tree later this fall for every roof sold at our Tampa location in the month of September. Through a partnership with the Tampa Parks & Recreation Department, this tree-planting initiative will allow us to not only make a positive impact on the environment, but also help beautify one of the cities that we are blessed to serve. The new Tadlock trees will be rooted during an upcoming company-wide day-of-service.
Additionally, we have recently launched a Tadlock Goes Green Instagram Contest to showcase all the ways people are leading environmentally responsible lifestyles. The winners of this photo contest will receive a trip for four to Walt Disney World and hotel accommodations at Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate. We encourage you to show us how you’re going green at home for a chance to win. We are fortunate to work with many wonderful people who are just as dedicated to the environment as we are, and that’s something worth celebrating.
Through sustainable work practices, education, and our various environmentally focused initiatives, we will continue to provide leadership in the roofing industry and our communities.
