There will come a time when your roof isn’t worth repairing, leaving you no choice but to dispose of your old roofing shingles. Fortunately, many homeowners are starting to be environmentally conscious when it comes to their home improvement decisions. Here are fun and creative ways to reuse old roofing shingles.
Cute Wall Art
If your old roofing materials are made from clay, you can opt to use the refuse material in creating wall art. Paint the clay tiles with bright hues or create wall paintings on them. Just make sure that you clean off the clay tiles before you make use of them. Apply a layer of primer too for good measure to ensure that the color will stay vibrant on the clay tiles. Once done, let out your creative side and paint some beautiful designs!
It’s important to dispose of your old roofing materials to make way for the new ones that will be installed. If you have a garden in your home, then you’re in luck! Your residential roofing expert will tell you that you can use old roof tiles to make flower pots out of them. In fact, slate tiles are ideal for these kinds of applications.
Since you’ll be stacking tiles on top of one another, make sure that you use uniformly sized tiles. Drill holes on each side of the tile, and use one by three inches of wood for every pot corner. Connect each side by drilling bolsters in the location of the holes. You can stabilize it by applying a base to the bottom of every tile.
