TechPro is dedicated to providing clients with services based on integrity, professionalism and value for invested dollar. One of TechPro’s most important core values is that of providing clients with solutions that cause the least possible environmental harm. It is becoming increasingly evident that the Earth has entered a period of rapid climate and environmental change. Whether or not one believes human activity to be the root cause of the Earth’s warming climate, there still exists a moral obligation for all of us to do what we can to limit the extent of the coming changes. Future generations face a poorer and far less habitable Earth if we do not. Roofing decisions have an important role to play in this regard.
Consistent with our desire to operate on a basis of integrity, TechPro no longer offers to install “torch-on” roofing. Torch-on roofing provides very short service lives, is poorly warrantied, poses serious fire risks, is non-recyclable, and of the available alternatives is by far the most environmentally harmful product to produce and dispose of. Despite these facts, torch-on roofing continues to represent more than 70% of BC “flat and low-slope roof”installations. By contrast, the alternative EPDM, TPO and PVC systems TechPro offers to install together account for up to 80% of the North American market… exactly opposite to the situation in BC. These alternate EPDM, TPO, and PVC membrane systems are far superior to “torch-on” roofing in that they provide much longer service lives, are backed by superior warranties, do not require dangerous propane torches to install them, and all are recyclable materials that are far less environmentally harmful to manufacturer.

With regard to asphalt shingle roofing, unfortunately there are not any economically viable alternate products currently available. As such, the best that can be done at present is to ensure that old asphalt shingles coming off roofs are properly recycled, which TechPro does. The polymer based, composite shingle roofing systems manufactured by Enviroshake and DaVinci are better environmental choices but are much more expensive systems to install than asphalt roofing.
