The Boral Steel® Cool Roof System, manufactured by Boral Roofing, is a high-performance roofing solution designed to keep the home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. The system consists of Boral Steel Stone Coated Steel roofing, a lightweight roofing material at just 1-1/2 lbs. per sq.ft., which boasts the structural strength of steel, along with three additional key components: Boral MetalSeal Underlayment, Boral Elevated Batten System (EBS), and a variety of hip and ridge ventilation products. Combined, these elements work in concert to greatly enhance the roof’s energy-efficiency performance, providing the homeowner with a lasting roof as well as meaningful return on investment.
Notably, the Boral Steel Cool Roof System incorporates above-sheathing ventilation. Hot air rises, creating a natural convection effect, and is then exhausted through ventilation with continuous airflow across the roof deck. The result is a cooler attic and living space in the home below. No matter what installation method, whether direct-to-deck or EBS battens, a Boral Steel Stone Coated roof with above-sheathing ventilation can help provide improved energy savings compared to asphalt shingles.
