Recycled metal roofing in Chicago

Although steel and aluminum are easily recycled, how can I find companies in the Chicago region that install recycled metal roofing as opposed to recyclable metal roofs?

Votes is a great place to start! Do a keyword search for 'metal roofing.' Most metal roofing is already made of at least 50 percent recycled material and is 100 percent recyleable. Another good source is the Metal Roofing Alliance, which can put you in touch with a metal roofing contractor in your area.

Most metal roofing, by the time it is removed, has little life in it. So, as a result, there is not a lot of recycled metal roofing.

However, much of the metal used in metal roofing has recycled content, as high as 95+ percent with aluminum roofs like those made by Classic Metal Roofing and others.
