Ethisphere Recognition Adds to Recent Company Distinctions

The Ethisphere recognition is one of several honors Owens Corning has earned for its corporate leadership recently, including:

  • Earning a place on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the 13th consecutive year, and on the DJSI North America Index for the fifth consecutive year, with industry-leading assessment scores. The DJSI World comprises an elite listing of the world’s largest companies based on long-term ESG criteria. Owens Corning received a perfect score in risk and crisis management, materiality, environmental reporting, recycling strategy, and social reporting.
  • Achieving Gold Class distinction in the 2023 Sustainability Yearbook from S&P Global. Gold Class is the organization’s highest honor for excellence in sustainability performance, a distinction Owens Corning has earned for nine consecutive years. With its score of 88/100, Owens Corning earned a Top 1% S&P Global ESG Score designation, the only company in the Building Products category to do so. More than 7,800 companies assessed in the 2022 Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) were considered for The Sustainability Yearbook with just 67 earning a Top 1% score.
  • Placing #19 on the 2023 Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable U.S. Companies list, up from #27 in 2022. This sixth annual ranking was administered by Calvert Research and Management, which scored the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies by market value. The top 100 firms achieved the highest scores across 230 environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance indicators ranging from workplace diversity to greenhouse-gas emissions.
  • Ranking #37 on the 2022 Management Top 250 list, published by The Wall Street Journal. Developed by the Drucker Institute, this ranking measures corporate effectiveness by examining performance in five areas: customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility, and financial strength. The ranking is based on an analysis of 34 indicators based on data obtained from a variety of third-party sources. Owens Corning’s 2022 ranking improved by 17 spots from #54 in 2021.
  • Earning placement on CDP’s 2022 Climate Change and Water Security A Lists for its leadership in environmental transparency on climate change and water security. CDP uses a detailed and independent methodology to assess companies based on comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks, and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.

A  full roof replacement involves a lot of decision making, from financing options to shingle materials. At Texas Professional Roofing, we want you to be prepared for when you take the next step and invest in a full roof replacement, so we’ve provided answers to some of your most frequently asked roofing questions.

How do I know if I need a new roof?

Sometimes, this answer is obvious: a hole in your roof, missing shingles, leaks, or animals living in your attic. Other times, the signs you need a new roof are little more subtle. If your roof is more than 12-15 years old, it may be time to get a replacement and get ahead of any problems that result from a damaged roof.

Curling shingles, missing or damaged flashing, ice dams, and discolored ceilings and walls are also good indicators that it’s time to replace your roof.

The longevity of your roof will depend on its materials, its installation, and its ventilation, so it’s hard to give a straight answer. Typically, a solid, well-constructed roof will last between 12-15 years. Depending on the quality and type of shingles you chose and the underlayment of your roof, that number can go up to 30 or more.

With GAF System Plus warranty we guarantee our roofs will last up to 50 years.

Every roof is different, so every roof costs a different amount. When considering the price of your new roof, roofing contractors take a few factors into consideration: size, old roof removal, style, shape, materials, and other features like chimneys, skylights, and vents that they need to work around.

A replacement roof is a big investment, and giving a quote without examining your unique situation would not be in our customers’ best interest.

However, once the price of your new roof is calculated, there are plenty of ways to finance your roof, making paying for your roof replacement easy and affordable.

According to Better Homes and Gardens, a whopping 40 percent of a home’s curb appeal is due to the condition and aesthetic of the roof. When selling your home, if your roof is in bad shape or in need of major repairs or a replacement, you may have a lot of trouble getting people to bid on your home.

A lot of buyers these days are on a budget, and don’t want to spend money on major repairs after they just bought a house. Replacing your roof before you sell can help you get ahead of trouble while still recouping most, if not all, of the costs when you sell.

While there is no official “roofing season” and roofers work all year round, summer and fall are usually busier months for most roofing contractors. Factors like snow, rain, ice, and sleet can impact how quickly roofers can safely and effectively get your roof finished, which is why dryer, warmer months are when most people opt to get their roofs replaced.

However, replacing your roof in the winter or spring could result in a quicker install due to more availability and less demand.
