Boulder Roofer Collaborates With Boulder Realtor

roofstoroadsI had the chance to meet recently with two guys who I’ve been trying to get together with for several weeks now… David Coddington from 3R Roofing and Steve Baus from Simple Solar.

simple-solar-panels2I’ve had the good fortune to connect with both of these local Boulder real estate related business professionals individually, and we met last week at The Cup in Boulder to talk about our respective businesses, and the efforts each of us is putting into making our work a little brighter shade of green.

The Simple Solar angle is pretty obvious when you look at it I think, but I still felt strongly that Steve from Simple Solar, and David from 3R needed a face to face.

shinglesOne of the cool things that David Coddington has done is he’s put together a program called Roofs to Roads. This was a long time in the making, and it required a lot of dedication on Coddington’s part to finesse the relationships with the right people to make it a reality.

Are you interested in meeting people like Steve from Simple Solar, and David from 3R Roofing? Call or email me soon and we can make that happen!

In addition to the obvious benefit of keeping tons of asphault shingles out of the landfills, there’s another great plus for the environment in his plan. Using recycled asphalt shingles reduces carbon dioxide emissions significantly.

Another great plus to the Roofs to Roads program is cost savings. Using recycled asphalt shingles can save about $3 to $5 per ton of asphalt used. Doesn’t sound like much? According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, a state agency that’s tested over 35 recycled-asphalt paving projects already, a typical road-resurfacing project uses about 30,000 tons of asphalt. That’s a potential total savings of somewhere between $90,000 and $150,000. The roads surfaced with recycled asphalt shingle material have also been reported to be more durable than conventional roads.

But wait, there’s more! The program concepted and developed by Coddington is structured so that roofers in the Boulder valley area can bring the asphalt tear-off shingles to the recycling project at no cost.

So, instead of paying to dump loads of reusable material into the landfills, area roofers have an opportunity to save money, be ecologically friendly, and provide material for potentially longer lasting roads.

Would you like to know more about Simple Solar, 3R Roofing, or the Roofs to Roads project? I’ll have a video profile on the RTR project soon, but in the meantime, call or email me and I’ll help you get in touch with Steve or David today.
