Eagle Goes Green
While many companies claim environmental responsibility as an aspiration or core value, at Eagle, it is more than that. It’s not just a part of what we do, it’s who we are. Eagle Roofing Products is dedicated to practicing environmental responsibility in everything we do. From the manufacturing process to the final product, our concrete roof tiles are created through sustainable, energy-efficient efforts. We are committed to doing our part protecting our planet for one simple reason: it is the right thing to do. A quick look at any aspect of our business will give you an idea of how this ideology permeates in everything we do (and make) – starting with our roof tiles.
At each of our manufacturing facilities, we practice recycling and re-use initiatives. We produce inherent energy-efficient concrete roof tiles from completely natural, raw materials which include sand, cement, pigment and water. Our beautiful, long-lasting tiles are built to endure the toughest outdoor and weather conditions such as rain, hail impact, fire and high winds. They also pass freeze-thaw protection requirements (excluding our slurry tiles).
Eagle is proud to serve as the leader in green concrete roof tile production. Our roof tiles are frequently chosen as the roof covering for many green residential and commercial structures throughout North America. Green building (also referred to as green construction or sustainable building) refers to the enacting of sustainable practices in the process of developing any structure. Development includes design, actual construction, operations, maintenance, renovations, and demolition. Green buildings aim to reduce their ecological footprint and can instead be a positive source for the climate and its natural surroundings by operating on methods that are more efficient than traditional buildings.
Green Buiding Programs
Eagle provides a vast selection of concrete roof tiles that align with the environmental and efficiency standards of Energy Star, Title 24 California Energy Code, and the Cool Roof Rating Council. Tiles meeting these criteria are also labeled with the logo of the corresponding initiative in all Eagle regional product brochures and on our website.
Because of our commitment to eco-friendly techniques, many of our products qualify for LEED rating points. Created by The U.S. Green Building Council, LEED is a program for green buildings and communities across the world. Our concrete roof tiles are proven to aid buildings in becoming LEED certified. This certification can apply to large buildings and commercial facilities, neighborhood developments, cities and communities, as well as homes.
Since our founding, we’ve strived to create roofing products that are durable, efficient, and environmentally friendly. We’re committed to sustainable initiatives because these practices promote healthy communities and have a positive long-term impact on our environment. Most importantly, our commitment stems from a deep-seated desire to help create a better world for those we serve.
