Sustainability


Not only has Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal earned a ranking among the top roofing contrators in the country, but we also pride ourselves on the ability to find solutions for architects in order to make their sustainability goals a reality.

We hold ourselves to a higher standard. This choice and commitment is clear in the products we use, in our installation practices and in waste disposal mechanisms we have adopted. We are smart about the materials we use and ensure that as many materials set for disposal as possible end up in the recycling stream.

Our processes on these projects often lowers the energy costs of a structure, effectively manages storm water runoff and generally takes sustainability to a whole new level.
