Westlake Royal Roofing Solutions™, a provider of efficient and durable roofing systems and components, has announced the launch of two all-new Unified Steel Stone Coated Roofing colors, which are rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council® (CRRC). The new colors, harborwood and stirling gray, are offered in both PINE-CREST Shake and PACIFIC tile profiles.
The new Unified Steel CRRC-rated colors are stone-coated steel roofing options, which provide high solar reflectivity and high thermal emittance when solar energy hits the roof surface. Thus, they detract sunlight and radiate heat off the roof surface.
Harborwood and stirling grey both exceed California Energy Code Title 24 Part 6 Cool Roof Requirements and, with a Solar Reflective Index (SRI) greater than 20, also meet Los Angeles County’s more stringent SRI requirements.
Unified Steel Stone Coated Roofing is a solution offering durability, performance, and resistance to severe weather. A lightweight option at just 1.5 lbs. per sq.ft., the material benefits from the structural strength of steel. When paired with above sheathing ventilation, Unified Steel provides enhanced energy efficiency performance. All Unified Steel products are Very Severe Hail rated, offer a Class A Fire Rating when used with designated accompanying underlay materials, and are Hurricane Performance Rated with Miami-Dade County HVHZ Approval.
The newly introduced Steel Cool Roof Rated Colors join Westlake Royal Roofing Solutions’ wide range of cool roof color options for concrete, clay, and composite, which are offered in various profiles and hues to complement a variety of architectural styles and preferences. In addition to Unified Steel Stone Coated Roofing options, cool roof colors are also offered in the company’s Newpoint™ Concrete Roof Tile, US Tile® Clay Roofing Products, and DaVinci™ Roofscapes. The Cool Roof Rated Colors may also be paired with the Westlake Royal Cool Roof System, which enhance the roof’s overall energy efficiency even further. The Cool Roof System is recognized for its ability to increase insulation, improve ventilation, and enhance the performance and lifespan of the roof.
