/EINPresswire.com/ Naperville, IL — Opal Enterprises, one of the leading roofing companies in Winfield, was recently named a Certified Green Roofer by GAF, the largest North American roofing manufacturer. With this designation, Opal Enterprises is being recognized for their commitment to greener, more sustainable business practices.

In order to receive this designation, Opal Enterprises completed USGBC training and learned how environmentally friendly roofing solutions can help create greener homes. Opal Enterprises studied cool roofing technology, solar energy prep, shingle recycling and more. The roofing contractor in Winfield also made a commitment to operating a green jobsite and participating in a local chapter of the USGBC.

“Opal has been recycling shingles that come off of our customer’s roofs for nearly 4 years now. We take our time to make sure our waste removal company takes these shingles to the recycling centers. Many roofing companies may recycle their shingles….but we take the extra step to document the tonnage and pass exams that keep us compliant with GAF’s Green Roofer Program. With our Green Roofer certification Opal is now also a member of the U.S. Green Building Council. It is hugely important to me and everyone with Opal Enterprises that we do our part and more when remodeling homes to make sure as much construction waste as possible is kept out of the landfills,” noted Tara D. Opalski of Opal Enterprises. (http://www.opalenterprises.net)

As a roofing company in Winfield, the owners and employees of Opal Enterprises realize that the roof of a home contributes significantly to green building requirements. Each employee has contributed considerably to achieving this prestigious green designation from GAF.

“Opal Enterprises would like to offer a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Mrs. Corrin Roach, Opal’s Office Manager, for taking the exams and keeping diligent records of our recycling efforts!” added Opalski.

Asphalt shingle roofing, is not only good for increasing durability, but it’s a cool roofing option that can improve overall energy efficiency while providing an excellent base for solar energy.
